The 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was built to be Chevy's personal
luxury coupe. So it's great to find one that has all the correct
factory pieces to feel premium - everywhere from the A/C interior
to the vinyl hardtop. It makes for the right kind of vintage
The Monte Carlo is a terrific classic American design, and this
example captures the era perfectly. The sheet metal has crisp lines
combined with a flowing profile. And the long hood really lets this
model take its time to properly showcase all this Detroit steel.
The factory-correct Placer Gold paint gives you the classic look,
and the white vinyl roof is the perfect way to convey 1970s style.
Plus, you want a '72 like this because it's the end of an era. The
new bumper laws would take effect the next year, so this was the
final time these shiny chrome kings would fit so nicely into the
overall design. While this coupe is significant, it's also not a
museum piece. So it has the right look of an impressive classic
that also won't make you nervous to take out and enjoy on the open
Just like the exterior, the interior features the factory-correct
color theme, and the earth-tones make for quite the 1970s time
capsule. There's a thoughtful level of detail here where you get
the rarely-seen comfortable cloth upholstery, smooth walnut-like
trim, and even the dome light works. And we bet there is going to
be more than one person that will comment how the door panels
aren't even missing a button. Slipping behind the wheel reminds you
of why the Monte Carlo is a personal luxury car. The steering wheel
is mounted on a tilt column for comfort, and all the right controls
are at your fingertips - including the sliders for the cold-blowing
factory air conditioning.
Under the hood is a nicely detailed 350 cubic-inch V8. This is the
correct displacement for this coupe, and it has a very clean stock
style. In fact, you'll mostly spot good maintenance and added
details like the HEI distributor. The Quadrajet four-barrel
carburetor inhales deeply, and it has a healthy but dignified
exhale with the dual exhaust feeding Cherry Bomb mufflers. And
because this was made for easy cruising, you have the three-speed
automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs,
and wide Cooper Cobra tires on bright Rally wheels.
This is that solid factory-spec Monte Carlo cruiser that's pure
vintage fun. So if you are looking to drive that '70s dream, don't
let this one slip away. Call today!!!
