For those who remember that a Chevrolet Monte Carlo should be equal
parts luxury and sport, this 1986 LS model is exactly what you've
been looking for. From its amazingly glossy black paint to the
loaded interior, this exceptionally low mileage coupe is the
perfect time capsule.
1986 is a pivotal year for Monte Carlo fans. This was the introduction of the Luxury Sport (LS) model. While these fourth-gen coupes have always looked quite striking with their long hood and short deck appeal, this one really brought the design together. Elements like Euro-inspired flush headlights, half vinyl roof, and revised rear make this a more distinctive cruiser. And if you're a fan of these personal luxury machines, you're going to love the survivor-grade presentation of this low-mileage example. The original black paint has the kind of sharp appearance that makes this Monte Carlo look like its wearing a tuxedo. And the all the bright trim and wire wheels are the perfect upscale accessories.
Inside is one of the cleanest factory interiors we have ever seen on a classic. Of course, averaging less than 575 miles annually means there was little time to even wear in the carpeting. And the pillow-top gray cloth seats look like no one has ever sat in them. You have a fold-down center armrest, so it's your choice to seat six total or have the individual comfort you expect in any Monte Carlo. You also get plenty of comfort features such as cruise control, tilt wheel, electric rear defogger, the original AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for air conditioning. The driver faces a sporty round gauge panel to complete this luxury and performance image.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see. These cars came with a V6 standard, but this one received the optional 5.0-liter V8. And since this coupe has had such a well-preserved appearance so far, you'll be glad to know it's believed to be the original motor to the car. In fact, it looks as fresh as the day it left the Texas factory. But more than look great, this V8 was what also akin to the motor utilized in Monte Carlo SS. Topped by a four-barrel carburetor, it's a strong runner with plenty of old-school torque, so this is the perfect 80s-style cruiser. It's even linked to a 200-4R four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Add in power steering and front disc brakes, and you've got a coupe you can enjoy near or far.
Complete with the original window sticker and title documentation, this is a survivor-grade Monte Carlo that truly lives up to its Luxury Sport name. So if you believe in a powerful coupe that can coddle, too, your perfect affordable classic awaits. Call now!
