For Sale: 1988 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1988 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS

Regarded as one of the most significant drivers in NASCAR history, Earnhardt won a total of 76 Winston Cup races over the course of his career, including the 1998 Daytona 500. He also earned seven NASCAR Winston Cup championships, tying for the most all-time with Richard Petty. This feat, accomplished in 1994, was not equaled again for 22 years until Jimmie Johnson in 2016. His aggressive driving style earned him the nicknames "The Intimidator", "The Man in Black", and "The Count of Monte Carlo". Also, his success at the restrictor plate tracks of Daytona and Talladega earned him the nickname, "Mr. Restrictor Plate".

Our consignment is for a 1 owner 1988 Monte Carlo which was bought new because the purchaser was a NASCAR nut and loved Dale Earnhardt. It is all original excluding the tires, it has a NOS headliner, rebuilt original carb, and a new fuel pump. Always garaged and never smoked in this adult driven sample is an original if there ever was one!

Exterior
With the nickname of "Intimidator" what could be a better color than black? Well, how about Dark Maroon Metallic? Then throw on some red striping around the wheel wells and mid sections on either side and on the bumper tops in front and rear. Add on an SS sticker on the door panels, blacken the grille, add a window to the B pillar, a spoiler to the trunk lid and two corner taillights on a swooping down rear panel. Neoprene body matching colored bumpers give the car an aero look. The racy look comes from the aluminum wheels which play with satin and shiny silver paint to accentuate their form. Raised white letter tires are on all 4 corners.

Interior
Maroon crushed velour with maroon vinyl bolsters are seen rarely ordered front split bench and rear bench seats. A center fold down armrest is between the front split back bench. Factory air, along with power windows, power steering and power locks, as well as a toggle for the driver's mirror are the options that came with the original car. Some fading is seen on the door panels next to the window openings, but door panels are in otherwise good condition. Carpet appears in good condition, and carpeted floor mats are installed in the front and rear of the car. A new maroon headliner has been installed due to the original sagging. I can also note a gauge package for this interior.

Drivetrain
Under the hood is a 305ci V-8 with a 4-barrel carb on top and attached to a 200R4 4-speed automatic transmission that throws power to the rear wheels via a 3.73:1 limited slip differential. This was standard setup for the 1988 Monte Carlo SS. All within a pristine highly detailed clean engine bay.

Undercarriage
F41 sport suspension is mounted to a clean and rust-free frame and undercarriage, (floor pans, wheel wells, and rockers). Independent coil spring suspension is on front along with power disc brakes and on back power drum brakes work with a 4 link with coil spring suspension. Dual exhaust that is nice and clean is noted.

Drive-Ability
Always a pleasure to drive one of these, and this one is in fabulous condition. It fired right up and on the test track cruised and bruised when I put the accelerator to the floor. Solid panic stopping which was boas free, and good handling. All functions were functioning as they should.

A 2 owner car, owned by a couple of NASCAR fans who really cared for this car. Is still in very good condition, and could easily be a daily driver. Nice colors and aero exterior with the gauge package interior. Boogity Boogity Boogity! (Can I say that??)
