1988 Monte Carlo SS - Car was bought new locally in Dec 1987, given to her son in 1997, and I purchased from him in Aug 2014.
Car is very solid, very original condition. Only mods are the QA1 Coil-Overs front & rear / Belltech Spindles / wheels and tires - have factory originally wheels with brand new (new in 2015) BFG Radial TA's (approximately 500 miles on them).
Things I have addressed since owning the car - conversion to R134 Gas in the A/C (usually takes one can to get back to pressure in the spring and then it is good for the year), rebuilt carburetor, new Optima RedTop, new windshield in 2016 (rock damaged original), and I had new mufflers & tailpipes put on in 2015 (rest of the exhaust is factory including pancake converter).
Wipers work, cruise works, power windows / locks work, remote trunk release works, remote mirrors work, all heat and a/c work, rear defroster works - only known interior issues are the cigarette lighter and wiper squirters do not work. Currently has a Sony aftermarket radio in it, but have original that was taken out in working condition. Carpet, seat, and even factory floor mats look like new - no fading of the velour.
Engine is solid, runs like a watch. No leaks. Trans works excellent with no leaks. I had the driveshaft U Joints replaced and rebalanced along with new rear output bushing in trans housing to fix a small vibration. Previous owner did put in a heater core at one point.
Car rides, handles and feels like new still.
Issues I am aware of - body has 30 year old factory paint. It shines and shows well, but it has some stone chips & fading in which these cars are known for. I did a full polish last year and it came out great, I just keep it polished and waxed. Original owner had the rock guard redone by the selling dealer at one point. Car was undercoated when new which has held up well.
Car draws a crowd anywhere it goes.
Options wise it is an oddity - it came with a Minnesota Specific Base option (came with all season tires, block heater, larger coolant and washer tank), full power, SS package, Posi, and bench seat w/ column shifter.
Have just about every piece of pertinent paperwork - order sheet, delivery sheet, option sheet, window sticker, and just about every receipt up until 1997 when her son took the car. Car had 19k miles on it then, 42k on it when I bought it.
We love the car, and like I said earlier it gets a ton of attention. Seems like everyone knows someone who had a g-body of some variant. I have moved onto another project and its time for someone to take this one over. I bought with all intent of doing a LS swap / AutoCross car, I just couldn't bring myself to the point of being to cut into such a nice car.
