71 Monte Carlo Custom
This complete frame off restoration finished in 2006 led by an experienced, meticulous craftsman. With with all matching numbers, this highly sought after 402 cubic inch beauty has the original blue door panels which are in excellent shape. Runs excellent, like a new old car. A project done with patience and meticulous care, it has 3,000'ish miles driven since restore and basically resides in a very clean garage most of the time. How do I know? It was my father's project, and he is the type person you would want to manage a quality restoration, and now he is ready to sell and begin his next project. Third owner after being built in California, spent time in Texas, then Tennessee, and now in Alabama.
Here's some bits:
Turbo hydra-matic 3-speed auto trans
Tires are full tread as seen in pics.
Original color, changed to White Landau top from two tone paint because it was an option for that year and is so fine.
2.73 rear ax
Chrome trim, roof drip
Rear window defog
and much more.
The buyer of this car will be ecstatic. Bunch of records, restore pics, and conversations waiting to be had upon purchase.

The Pick of the Day is Chevrolet’s popular coupe factory equipped with a 402cid V8
The Pick of the Day is rare because it has never been modified nor driven into the ground
Pick of the Day has been driven only 751 miles since it rolled out of the dealership’s showroom.
The Monte Carlo Intimidator Edition was a limited-edition trim package that celebrates the late NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt
Here’s a sleeper they’ll never see coming, a 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo that looks more like a disco-era bar crawler than a performance machine.
I was inspired for the Pick of the Day by the season-ending race for the 2016 Sprint Cup series, when Jimmie Johnson won his seventh championship.
On February 14th, 1972, I was turning 9 years old and living in Boulder City, Nevada.
The 1970s was the funkadelic decade when folks did the hustle in bell bottoms and drove around in “personal luxury coupes,” best exemplified by the Pick of the Day.
