This 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS like this is a signpost for most
of us. It's so well presented and preserved, that we take one look,
each one of us has a different memory of when we first saw this
distinctive aerodynamic shape. And when was the last time nostalgia
came with A/C comfort, V8 power, and such a nice price?
This is one of the last great cool personal coupes. The design of the Monte Carlo SS was all about being aerodynamically enhanced. The front end had a special design to cut the air, and there's a small duck tail spoiler on the rear. Even the badging was kept aerodynamic, so it correctly wears its SS designation in bold red decals on the doors and rear. This looks great with the wraparound triple stripe that goes from a bold red and fades to black. It looks particularly nice against the factory-correct white paint that we believe is original to the car. And when something looks this good three decades later, you know it has been a well-respected coupe. In fact, the body is excellently preserved right down to the factory alloy wheels.
Burgundy fabric was a good choice in the SS, because it matches the bold but sophisticated tone of the exterior. Plus, averaging less than 1,200 miles annually means there was little time to wear in any of it. The buckets provide good bolstering, but still give the same all-day comfort you expect in any Monte Carlo. Plus, there's a center console for added relaxation. It's a luxury performance car, so you get plenty of comfort features such as ice-cold air conditioning, cruise control, tilt wheel, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. The driver faces a black factory performance steering wheel. In front of that is a sporty full gauge package, and it's all set in a dash that carries a sporty red stripe, just like the exterior.
On a car this original, it's great to see the numbers-matching 305 cubic-inch High Output small block under the hood. And the low-mileage means it still looks factor fresh. Just like the best Monte Carlos before it, this V8 is topped with a Rochester four-barrel carburetor - but now it's computer controlled for optimal performance. This creates 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, and 200-4R four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with owner's manual, rarely do you get to find a well-preserved classic that's this distinct and affordable. That's why you also know you have to act fast to take it home. Call now!
