Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this awesome 1987 Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe. With only 6052 Super Sport Monte Carlo Aero Coupes built during 1987, this is a one off amazing piece of history. Bought by the current owner 20 years ago, he decided to build this car the way Chevy should have done it! The anemic 5.0L V8 that put out only an anemic 180 Horses to the ground has been discarded. We all tried to convince ourselves, back in the day, that the 305 was awesome, but it's what you do when you overcompensating for your deficiencies. The replacement is a very healthy 350 CID engine that has bored .030 over the block lined bored, plate honed to insure everything stayed straight during the machining process. The rotating assembly has been balanced, to insure longevity of this power plant, with a set of TRW forged flat top pistons installed and a Crane roller cam (computer friendly cam) to make this a rock solid piece. To allow this engine to breathe properly, a set of Trick Flow Twisted Wedge heads, held in place by ARP head bolts and Crane Gold roller rockers fro reliability with less resistance. To get plenty of air into the heads, a T.P.I.S. Big Mouth intake with matched big tube runners and BBK throttle body set at op the engine. All GM sensors are new with a new GM Computer. The exhaust is a set of Edelbrock headers, with a.i.r. injection, that have been Jet Hot coated so they will last for the life of the car. From the headers, a Torque Tech 2.5 mandrel bent exhaust system with Walker Super Dyno-Max mufflers. The whole engine compartment including the wiring system has been done to appear factory. The engine is estimated to put out a minimum 360 hp, or twice the original power plant. To handle extra power, the original 200r4 with Art Carr internals and an Art Carr torque Converter. The rear end has been swapped out for a Buick Grand National rear end that has new bearings, posi unit, 3.73 ring & pinion with a set of Moser Street/Strip axles to make the rear end nearly bullet proof. The interior is all original burgundy cloth seats and original dashboard. When you set in the interior, it still looks and smells as good as the day it rolled off the showroom. Outside the car, the vehicle is done in White gloss paint, with pin striping that very closely matches the factory scheme, with difference being on the hood indicating what lies beneath. Before the new white paint was laid down, the car was taken completely apart, including being separated from the frame. The frame was sand blasted, painted in a semi gloss, then all new parts were installed including; new stainless fuel & brake lines, Bell Tech 2 inch front drop spindles, 2 inch Bell-Tech springs in rear w/shocks, NOS GM body bushings. To finish off the look is a set of COYs 5 wheel with gray centers and a polished outer lip. One look under the shows the unmatched detail to attention that has been brought to the whole build of this car. This Monte Carlo has won at Car Shows regularly over the last 10 years and will continue to win shows! Everybody has heard the line, "you couldn't build this car for the price", it is definitely a true statement in this case. This Monte Carlo here is sure to please a crowd at a car show, with its low, throaty rumble upon startup, its tire burning horsepower, and its sleek stylish appearance. Options include Radial tires, A/C, Power brakes, Power steering, AM/FM radio and Power windows.

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.
