For Sale: 1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in Kentwood, Michigan


Vehicle Description

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1976 "Custom Cloud" for purchase. The March 1976 cover of Car and Driver features a picture of a car with a luxurious front grill that looks a lot like the prestigious Rolls Royce with big words that said "Wrong. It's a Chevrolet". Yes, the car pictured here is a 1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Jon Tedesco was a hot rodder building customs when he got an interesting offer from the South Florida Chevrolet Dealer Association wanting some help to improve sales. They showed up to the 1975 Miami International Motor Show and the 1976 New York Auto Show when Rolls Royce execs were furious to find out Tedesco actually had a patent to produce these cars and were able to get a cease & desist.

Rolls Royce not surprisingly won in court and stopped the production of the Custom Clouds. Tedesco would produce some more along the same line of thinking called "Custom Coaches", but they did not have the same fanfare. The amount of Custom Clouds produced are not known. Some claim only 14 were produced. Some believe there were more produced, but official numbers are unknown. There weren't many built in that warehouse in Florida before they were shut down so this is an interesting piece of automotive history we are offering here. It's very original out of a private collection ready for the next owner. It's a smooth driving 400ci V8 and automatic transmission that gets a ton of looks as you go down the road! Please call or email for more details!
