Vintage car fans will love to find a 1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
with its numbers-matching motor and factory-correct triple green
presentation. Even the interior has been exceptionally preserved.
But this is no time capsule. The coupe's stance helps clue you in
on how the V8 has been upgraded to make for the kind of car that
can really take people by surprise as it shows them its
The Green Mist paint is the factory-correct color, and it looks
good on a 1970s machine. Of course, that's especially true on a
coupe with an overall solid presentation. That means a nice gloss
to the respray, clean body panels, and a well-fitting green vinyl
top. Form-hugging bumpers, full-length rockers, and premium Monte
Carlo trim make for a proper look to an upper-class Chevy. The
whole hardtop has a solid vintage style. So if you don't spot the
bright helper bars under the rear axle, you might not pick up on
the true power within this sleeper-style classic.
The sea of green continues inside. So while some of the more
obvious muscle machines are done in triple-black, this continues
its understated style with the exterior, roof, and interior
creating a triple-green. In fact, people who peek inside might just
get the impression that you borrowed the car from your grandparents
thanks to the clear vinyl covers (seriously though, it's impressive
to have the cloth seats preserved so well.) And the fundamentals
like the dash, headliner, door panels, and carpeting all look good
to give an overall feeling of vintage quality. There are nice
cruiser features like a tilt steering column and factory air
conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) You'll
even appreciate details like the working dome light. But the
addition of the Suntune tach and auxiliary gauges also get you
ready for something good under the hood.
The engine bay has the numbers-matching motor, but one glance and
you know it's far from stock. This was born with a 400 cubic-inch
V8, and Chevy performance people know these make for a solid
powerhouse when de-stroked to 377ci. It also was upgraded with a
Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, HEI ignition, and
long tube headers feeding a glasspack style dual exhaust. So now
you have a NASCAR-style setup with a solid added hit of top-end
power. The numbers-matching three-speed automatic transmission
feeds a 12-bolt rear end. And the rear suspension is now reinforced
and has a sway bar. Add in power steering, power brakes, and front
discs, and you have a powerful coupe that also lives up to the
Monte Carlo's full cruising nature.
The sale comes complete with the build receipt and owner's manual.
This is the classic Chevy hardtop that keeps its vintage style on
display, and its performance nature well-hidden until it's time to
show off. Call today!!!
