This 1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS combines an original V8, comfy
interior, and terrifically coordinated color package inside & out.
That's why a value-priced classic like this will always be
Sure, these look great in black or white, but when was the last time you saw one in its factory-correct Burgundy Metallic? It's a hue that's more sophisticated than red, but still keeps its sporty nature. And that's exactly how you want a Monte Carlo SS to look. After all, it represents the perfect mix of a performance attitude in a personal luxury coupe. One professional respray means this has a nice luster in the sunshine. Even the wraparound triple-stripe and SS decals were correctly retained. That's particularly important because the overall package offers a well-presented "wow" factor. The sporty urethane chin spoiler and unique nose were created to cheat the wind, and since Chevy skipped the chrome, it will always look modern.
Inside is more of the rich burgundy appearance. So we love how the tone of the materials coordinate so nicely with the exterior color to create a complete uniform package delivered right from the factory. Bucket seats, a center console, and a grippy SS steering wheel get your sports car senses pumping. And the full round gauge package with tachometer only heightens this feeling. But remember this is more than just a performance machine. This SS is also about being luxurious, too, so you get all the right features like cruise control, tilt wheel, electric rear defogger, and the original AM/FM/cassette stereo. There are even provisions for power windows and power locks. So, in total, you have a very sporty machine that's also all-day comfortable. And this attitude continues with you twist the key.
The 305 cubic-inch V8 under the hood looks so honest that we believe it's original to the car. And this High Output version really makes the most out of the small block. In fact, just like the best Monte Carlos before it, this V8 is topped with a Rochester four-barrel carburetor. It's now a computer controlled unit to make sure that this classic setup is always producing the optimal performance. The V8 is setup to be a torque-filled package that is perfect no matter if you're using this personal coupe for luxury or performance. The same goes for great anytime features like the power steering, front disc brakes, thick sway bars front & rear, and 200-4R four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a dual-purpose classic in that's presented in the best colors around. So when this total package is turn-key ready for an affordable price, you know you need to act quickly. Call now!
