Here is a very affordable time capsule at its best. This one family owned 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo has averaged less than 1,500 miles annually, and it has truly been a cherished coupe with its factory-correct colors, A/C interior, and plenty of documentation.
It's time to fall in love with this Monte Carlo coupe in the same way its first owner did. Take a look at all the documentation photos. It shows you this car has been living in the same Tampa suburb that our showroom is in today. It's not hard to understand how a car like this could be so well cared for over the decades. The Monte Carlo was the top echelon of the Chevy lineup. Their personal luxury coupe looks fantastic in great 70s-style colors. But this one is especially nice as its factory-correct Sequoia Green and Antique White is benefiting from the professional respray featuring modern clearcoat paints. Like any great American classic, it also has a ton of brightwork to make it standout. Competing with the paint for luster meant making sure the wide chrome bumpers, full rocker trim, and exclusive grille with Monte Carlo badge all continued to shine like mirrors over the years. Plus, the iconic Rally wheels are a great finishing touch to any shiny Chevy package.
The green interior is a nice complementing shade that coordinates nicely with the exterior color. The dual cloth benches don't have even a button missing from these original pattern seats. They seat six in complete luxury, especially since the air conditioner was upgraded to R134a to keep in blowing ice-cold into modern times. The complete and pristine condition of the green dash, door panels, and even the carpeting makes this feel like a time machine. The driver gets a burled walnut simulated wood panel on the steering wheel, and that is repeated across the entire dash. While that adds to the Monte Carlo's upscale credentials, the round gauge package gives this a premium performance feeling.
Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8, which is another testament of how nicely this car represents its era. In fact, more than just the factory motor, it appears to have the original intake, valve covers, exhaust manifold, and Rochester two-barrel carburetor. It starts right up, and keeps its luxury demeanor with a new muffler added within the last few years. The factory advertised 245 hp means the coupe moves with ease and the three-speed automatic transmission sifts like a luxury coupe should. This is Chevrolet's personal luxury statement, so you get great driving features such as power steering and front disc brakes.
Take some time to look at the original window sticker, Protect-o-Plate, owner's manual, title documentation, and maintenance records. You'll see a well cared for classic coupe that's looking for a new owner who understands that its affordability is really an invitation to be the new custodian of its history. Call today!!!
