This 1973 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Landau is coming off of long-term ownership, and you can really see the difference the extra care makes. But more than just well-preserved, you're going to love this premium cruiser for outstanding features everywhere from its V8 power to the ultra-desirable T-tops.
This was the first year for the second generation Monte Carlo, and it was about rolling sophistication. After all, it has a very regal presence with its correct Regal Black paint that gives off a deep shine from a modern clearcoat respray. And the black Landau roof offers a nice coordination while giving this premium coupe its namesake. But what really still catches your eye in are the details. Up front, the large round headlights are nicely integrated into the pointed front end. The rear has a crisp line that also creates a stylish overhang for the taillights. And nothing beats this coupe's profile. The sweeping fender line that extends all the way into the doors is something they'd never dare try again today, and it's showcased so well with the sporty red pinstripe. Plus, there's all the right brightwork, with wraparound chrome bumpers, nice rocket trim, and a hint of flair in the upgraded torque thrust wheels. Overall, the reason why this coupe looks so good today is because the consignor has owned it for 44 years. That means the it has been cherished for decades.
It's always a classic sign of elegance when the exterior pinstripe matches the interior. So it's especially nice to see great care taken to keep the all-red inside so highly original and vibrant. Those who knew how to option their Monte Carlo correctly could really get it to live up to Chevy's personal luxury aim for this coupe. The 2nd gen debuted a new bucket seat design that really knew how to cradle the driver and front passenger. It's finished in a plush velour, and it's complete, right down to the button-top presentation. Plus, you'll love showing off the cool swivel action that these have for better access. A sporty center console and wraparound instrument panel complete a very driver-oriented package. The premium feeling continues with plenty of walnut wood-like trim, an upgraded AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette, and factory air conditioning (will need servicing to blow the ideal amount of cold.) And of course, the T-top option lets you share this well-preserved and loaded interior with the world.
Part of this car's exceptional care is also seen in the engine bay. This is believed to be the original 350 cubic-inch motor, and there's a clean presentation that show the utmost care everywhere from the hoses to the Optima red top battery. This even looks like there has been a recent tune-up. It fires up nicely as the V8 inhales deeply with the four-barrel carburetor, and it runs smoothly while delivering the kind of torque you demand from a large classic American coupe. In fact, this one keeps its easy-cruising attitude with great driving features like power steering, power brakes with front discs, a three-speed automatic transmission, and sway bars front & rear.
The sale come complete with the owner's manual, maintenance records, service manual, car cover, T-top sleeves, and even an extra set of T-tops if you wish. This is the kind of quality care and extras that come from a long-term cherished classic. So you know this is an opportunity you can't miss. Call today!!!
