Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
With a great color combo, original V8 power, and a highly detailed high-class appearance, this 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo offers quite a lot of appeal for quite an obtainable price. So this coupe is already desirable before you know its coming off of over three decades of long-term ownership.
This is a thoughtfully done presentation and it starts with how everything on the exterior is well-coordinated. The red paint was an upgrade later in life, and it's a nice improvement over the car's original earthtone style. Plus, it looks extra special with the addition of redline tires. The newer black vinyl roof is a great way to always distinguish a premium classic. Not only does it show off the Monte Carlo's exclusive hardtop profile, but also the full-length rocker trim has a black strip to give the whole package a harmonious appearance. The sheetmetal looks nice, so it shows off the car's unique curves, and the Monte Carlo badging is clean and complete. All of this makes for the kind of classic that commands the same kind of respect that this premium Chevy did when new.
We love it when the roof color is a preview of what's inside. The full black presentation is another one of this car's upgrades. The soft feel of the dash pad, plush newer carpeting, and smooth feel of the bright trim are all part of an investment in quality. So while it looks stock - right down to the button-top seats - it all feels quite a bit fresher. Within this darkness, the burled walnut simulated wood on the steering wheel and dash are terrific standouts. This dash still has the classic 8-track AM/FM radio and factory air condition controls (they will need servicing to fully function.) This is a driver-oriented setup where you have a clear view to the round gauge package that reinforces both the premium and sporty feeling.
Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. Its tidy condition is another testament of how this coupe has been in long-term respected care. In fact, we love how the bold orange block and valve covers radiate from within the dark engine bay. And as you dig deeper, you're going to signs of good maintenance everywhere from the hoses to the power brake booster. The four-barrel carburetor lets the small block inhale deeply, and the Flowmaster dual exhaust makes a nice V8 tune that's never to boisterous. And as Chevrolet's personal luxury statement, so you get great driving features such as the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet and owner's manual. This is a great-looking Chevy package offered for a great price. Call today!!!
