Chevrolet Monte Carlo

The Chevrolet Monte Carlo was first introduced in 1970 and remains as one of GM's biggest successes. Created as Chevrolet's answer to the new G-body Pontiac Grand Prix that was introduced in 1969.

Most of the credit for the design and creation of the Monty Carlo is given to Elliot M. (Pete) Estes, general manager of Chevrolet, and chief stylist, Dave Holls. Offered as an American personal luxury car the Monte Carlo also had dominated the NASCAR stock racing circuit and over the years has gone through six generations of changes to date, with all of the Monte Carlos being two-door coupes.

Production Years: 1970 - 1988   (1995 - 2007)
