Description
 
17,282 original miles! Completely original survivor in spectacular condition. The only non-factory parts on the entire car appear to be the tires and battery. Runs and drives like a new car.

Aside from the tires and battery, it appears that virtually every component on the car is factory-installed and wonderfully preserved thanks to careful storage. The code 69 Brown paint clearly demonstrates that this is indeed factory-applied enamel. There’s a clarity to the finish and a shine you don’t often find in ‘70s General Motors products, making this car all the more impressive. Fit and finish are quite good, and those massive doors open and close with ease, with no sagging hinges or tired latches. Even the weatherstripping is like new, sealing this big coupe up like a tomb on the open road.

That showroom fresh impression continues inside. There are no creases, no dried out bits with cracks, and even the driver’s seat is firm and comfortable, just as you’d expect from a car with under 20,000 original miles. The carpets have been protected for decades by matching tan rubber floor mats, so they’re in excellent shape, and the door panels don’t even have a minor depression where someone might have been resting their arm while behind the wheel. All the gauges save for the clock are functional, and the original AM/FM stereo radio pulls in stations loud and clear. The car also includes factory A/C, which is nice for cruising on hot summer days. Also note that the trunk is spotless, including in the lower corners where most Monte Carlos rusted out almost instantly, while this one still carries the original cardboard covers. There is no mat, but an original jack assembly is included.

With the optional L-code 350/4-barrel V8, it makes for a very pleasant cruiser with plenty of torque and a wonderful soft V8 rumble that sounds luxurious. It is a sure-thing in preservation competition and will wow crowds with its impressive originality. That’s factory-applied Chevy Orange paint on the block, correct GM-stamped hoses, and 100% OEM wiring and plumbing throughout. It’s backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a set of towering 2.56 gears so fuel economy is decent and it cruises at 75 MPH almost silently. Even things like the shocks are original equipment, and it’s quite likely that even brake pads and shoes are OEM. As far as we can tell, only the tires have been changed, and the optional Rally wheels now wear a set of 215/75/15 whitewall radials that were installed some years ago, but look right on the car.

These cars are on the short list of future collectables. Their older siblings are already seeing some nice gains in the marketplace, and as the generation of car hobbyists grow up and start to collect the cars of their youth, these will become increasingly popular. Of course, that doesn’t take into account that they’re simply nice cars to own and drive, and offer V8 power and a dose of luxury for a very reasonable price. This low-mileage 1977 Monte Carlo is shockingly clean, original, and unmolested, ready to drive and enjoy today. Call now!
