1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo -- Additional Info:

Beautifully restored and number-matching 350 V8 are what makes this 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo collectable. But as you look over the details on this triple-black beauty, not only will you see there was a ton invested to be showroom fresh, but also the manual transmission makes this quite a rare luxury classic. The shiny black paint really emphasizes the Monte Carlo's classic good looks, particularly the subtle fender curves that are highlighted when the light hits it just... right. And the black vinyl roof just adds the perfect vintage touch of class. The reason why the sheetmetal still looks this good today is because this one has less than 450 miles on it since completing a thorough restoration of the exterior, interior, suspension, and the V8 under the hood. Like any great American classic, it also has a ton of brightwork to make it standout. Competing with the paint for shine meant making sure there was a mirror-like polish on areas like the wide chrome bumpers, full rocker trim, and exclusive grille with Monte Carlo badge. Plus, the iconic Rally wheels are a great finishing touch to any shiny Chevy package. More signs of great investment come when you open the door. The bucket seats have comfortable cloth for where you sit, and not a single button is out of place. So it matches nicely with the style of the rear seats and door panels. Plus, all the coordinating black components - from the center console to the headliner - are all new. So this one feels exceptionally fresh. Even the trunk has a time capsule-like appearance, and that's believed to be the original spare tire! You sit behind the factory wheel, and the burled walnut on here, the console, and the dashboard gives it an upscale feel. And everything in the dash is working correctly, including the heat/defrost sliders and AM/FM radio. But as much as this looks like a classic luxury machine, the large factory tach and stick shift are two elements that tell you this goes beyond just a coddler. Under the hood is the original 350 cubic-inch V8. It was rebuilt during the restoration, so it will impress with the amount of shine and correct bold orange radiating from within the dark engine bay. With the four-barrel carburetor on top, this one was eligible for a very rare option. The original Muncie M20 transmission was a seldom-purchased sports option, and so this means this coupe's production numbers could possibly be as low as below 300 examples. So this Monte Carlo offers great originality and some serious rarity. But more than just a great history, this was restored to be a very factory-correct driver. Not only was the original four-speed rebuilt, but also the undercarriage photos will show you they made the right investments all around the car. Plus, with power steering and front disc brakes, it will be easy to show off this rare hardtop everywhere. The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet, original Protect-O-Plate warranty card, owner's manual, and other paperwork. So this is the full midnight package applied to a very rare luxury Chevy. Oh yeah, this is something special, and if you hurry, it can all be yours. Call today!!!
