For Sale: 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in Milford, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo - 350cid V8 with Heavy Duty Drivetrain, Original, Unrestored, NICE!
When Chevrolet introduced the Monte Carlo in 1970, they created a car that didn't fit any particular category, the engineers started with a clean slate to design a car that was different - a combination of luxury and sport, a car that didn't have any others to even compare to at that time. This was the first generation of the Monte Carlo.
By 1972, these slightly bigger than mid-size coupes were very popular. Offered in a variety of powertrain packages from small block V8, to the tire shredding 454 big block, these luxury/sport automobiles could be found in numbers from coast to coast. From the initial 1970 release to the final year of the first generation in 1972, only minor styling changes were made to keep the overall look very recognizable until the next platform was to be released in 1973.
Check out this great example of a "survivor" '72 Monte Carlo offered by LaFontaine Classic Cars. It is rare to find one of these in its original state, in such great condition. It does appear there may have been a repaint at some point during prior ownership using the factory code "43" Gulf Green to give the faded exterior some new life. The sheet metal, from the body panels to the floor boards, is in great shape with no signs of rust or filler cracks to be seen. The original bumpers and chrome plated trim, door handles, and mirrors are all looking great while the stainless trim from front to rear is all intact and in very nice condition. The matching green vinyl top looks about perfect without underlying bubbles or tears.
The interior is in its factory configuration with the seats covered in the stock code "734" Covert which is very close to an ivory color. The door panels, dash pad, headliner and carpet all appear to be factory original and all in excellent condition with minimal signs of wear. The dash board wears simulated wood grain that surrounds the optional "sport" gauge package featuring 7000 rpm tachometer, 120 mph speedometer, amp, coolant temperature, and fuel level gauges, with a clock to the right of the speedo. This dash and gauge package is very similar to the dash found in the 1970-1972 Chevelle SS - in fact, many parts on the first-generation Monte Carlo directly interchange with the Chevelle. Additional options include: Power steering, power front disc brakes, tilt steering column, remote sideview mirror, door panel map pockets, and functional air conditioning.
This particular Monte has some unusual drivetrain components starting with its 350 cubic inch, 4-barrel V8 engine, factory rated at 175hp. With only 55,000 miles on the clock, this 350 V8 has plenty of "punch" left in it. Backing the small block engine is a factory optional, heavy duty, TH400 automatic transmission delivering the power back to the upgraded, super-strong, 12 bolt rear end spinning 2.73 gears. Typically, these first gen Monte Carlos are equipped with the lighter duty TH350 transmission and 10 bolt rear end - so the person who ordered this Monte wanted to make sure the drivetrain would be as bullet-proof as possible.
Finishing off the great looks is a set of 15x7 GM rally wheels wearing P215/75/15 white-wall radial tires that contribute to the superb ride quality of this Luxury/Sport cruiser.
