For Sale: 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS Pace Car

For 2000, Chevrolet not only again called upon GM Motorsports for design inspiration, but also to Monte Carlos of the past. Among the traits carried over from older Monte Carlos were the stylized wheel flares, vertically oriented tail lamps, and a stylized rear bumper. Another classic trait for 2000 was the return of the "knight" badging, as well as a full gauge cluster, not seen on the Monte Carlo since 1988. Back again was the Super Sport moniker, replacing the Z34 designation of the fifth generation, which was a Lumina Coupe legacy. At the request of racing teams, Chevrolet stylists added a slight "hump" on the rear trunk. It was a distinct trait that stayed with Monte Carlo. From the NASCAR circuit came the aerodynamic styling and ducktail spoiler. The 6th generation Monte Carlo is based on the Monte Carlo "Intimidator" concept car, produced in 1997. Trim levels initially consisted of the LS, and SS and the LS used a 3.4 L OHV V6, while the SS got the 3.8 L V6.

For consignment, a pace car edition Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS with a ground effects package, racing rear spoiler, stainless exhaust tips, custom interior features and door opening kick plates. All buttoned up and looking much like not only the car that paced the Brickyard but also some of the cars that competed in said event. This 1 owner, 44,185 mile, Limited Edition Pace Car is sans graphics which this writer feels keeps the mystique and allure flowing.

Exterior
Unlike the actual car to pace the Brickyard 400 this car is bathed in Superior Blue Metallic, only this car is sans stickers and just clean deep blue. Blue integrated front and rear bumpers, a blue belt line trimming, and a racing inspired rear blue spoiler all complete the look. The silver ground effects package is put on where a bit of lighter flare shows on the bottom of the car and races all around it. Monte Carlo, written in your grandmother's script, is on the sides along with a blazing red SS badge. Way back are stainless steel exhaust tips and a Limited Edition Pace Car badge. On top, an electric sunroof, and on all 4 corners 16-inch diamond cut aluminum wheels. Black window surrounds, gentlemen, start your engines!!!

Interior
Nicely sculpted molded two-tone door panels in dark charcoal greet us with a swing of the door. Power lock, power window and power side mirror switches are embedded within. Slipping inside we see leather accented seats with smooth black leather bolsters and stitched black tuck and roll leather inserts with the driver's outer bolster showing notable wear from entrance and egress. The driver's side features 6-way power adjustments and both buckets are even heated, and the Chevrolet bowtie is embroidered into the headrests. In back is a larger 2 plus 2 bench setup very much like the front but with a single seat with no break in the middle, just a fold down armrest. The instrument panel with this car is the limited-edition instrument cluster and is badged as such. An AM/FM/Cassette/CD digital readout radio is within the dash confines and the interior sports a 6-speaker sound system which has an automatic volume increaser as road noise increases. A tight gray headliner is above, and a presentable dark charcoal carpet is down below.

Drivetrain
A 3.8-liter 200hp rated V6 with SFI is sitting in the clean engine bay under the hood. On the back is a 4T65E 4-speed automatic transmission and is equipped with a 3.29 final drive ratio.

Undercarriage
Very clean underneath with absolutely only slight hints of surface rust on painted parts and barely any road dirt. Electronic traction control has been installed, independent coil springs for the front, and independent coil springs for the back sport tuned suspension. Power disc brakes on all 4 corners are noted.

Drive-Ability
Low mileage cars are always a pleasure to slip into and this one was no exception. It fired right up, and the test track proved no match for it. All functions were working flawlessly, and it provided a smooth ride with nice smooth acceleration, good handling and straight braking. Every time I glanced in the rearview mirror I was expecting to see a field of 43 trailing me patiently waiting for the lights to turn off as we exited turn 4, but I digress as it was nice to fantasize!

A low mileage, one owner, nice clean example of a pace car edition Monte Carlo SS sans decal package. Sporting Nascar styling cues and a long-lived Monte Carlo heritage you'll be ready to pace any field, be it a stock car or local show circuit.
