This Monte Carlo features a recent professional re paint on a laser strait body, an original Burgundy interior which is in fantastic condition, a freshly rebuilt V8 engine, new Flowmaster dual exhaust, and US Mags 18" wheels. This Monte Carlo is very solid with great lines and gaps and no signs what so ever of rust on the body or frame. This Monte Carlo is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Black exterior over Burgundy deluxe cloth interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified on the RPO label and trim tag pictured below.


The Black exterior is in fantastic restored condition. This Monte Carlo was treated to a recent professional repaint and has a mirror finish and was difficult to photograph due to all the reflections in the paint. The paint shines extremely well and the body is super strait, outside of one small ding in the bottom left of the trunk lid. The paint is in excellent condition and the body and frame are both very solid with no signs of rust anywhere. Both bumpers are in excellent shape shape with no fading or flaking paint. There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but noting was intentionally excluded from the photos. The Bridgestone tires are practically brand new and have excellent tread left and are sized 245/50/18 all around and the wheels are US Mags and brand new as well and in near perfect condition. Trunk is very solid and clean with no signs of rust or rust repair.


The Burgundy deluxe cloth interior of this Monte Carlo is in spectacular original condition. The original seat covers are in great condition with no major rips, stains, or fading. The carpet is in great condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. The original dash is in great condition with no cracks or fading and the dash bezel is in great condition as well. The original digital cassette stereo works. The original door panels are in excellent condition and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The package tray is in excellent condition with no warping or stains. All interior and exterior lights and gauges work as they should. The stereo, wipers, fan blower, gauges all work, the horn is not working and the power door locks work intermittently.


This Monte Carlo in excellent mechanical condition with only 51,931 actual miles. We have driven this car numerous times and it always performs very well. The V8 engine is very fresh and obviously rebuilt(per previous owner) and has a newly installed Edelbrock intake and valve covers, with an HEI distributor, a 4bbl q jet carb., coated headers, and the engine block has been freshly painted black. In the video one can observe this car running and driving with no excessive rattles or noises, and the car handles and performs well. The previous owner of this Monte Carlo kept meticulous car of the car and regular maintenance was performed as needed. This Monte Carlo is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs great. The brakes do not pull and stop as they should. The exhaust system has been completely upgraded with dual flowmaster mufflers and ceramic coated headers. It has a great exhaust note at idle and cruising speeds. Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. This is a factory AC car and all the parts are in tact but appears to need a charge to blow cold. Since 18" wheels were added during the restoration the steering wheel is not centered and could benefit from a front end alignment to correct that. Title is branded as "rebuilt," we looked up the title history at our local BMV and it was branded "rebuilt" in December of 1988 due to an early on accident. Obviously the car is in great working order to still be on the road and in restored condition. Title brand on this car is absolutely nothing to be concerned with.
