1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Description

Serious performance and grand touring luxury were the hallmarks of the big block 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlos. And this restored example only amplifies those attitudes with a performance-built V8, four-wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, modern sleek paint, and a comfy A/C interior. That makes it the full wish list classic that's turn-key ready today.
This coupe's exterior is an upgrade from the original, so you want a paint that let's everyone know that. Cortez Silver was offered on the first-gen Monte Carlo, but this application has a deep shine that comes from a more modern and professional paint application. It gives this car a radiant personality. Plus, the new black vinyl roof furthers this premium image while also showcasing the pillarless hardtop profile. It's a formal look that's continued on the well-integrated chrome bumpers, full rocker trim, and exclusive Monte Carlo badging. This idea of aggression and premium shine comes together perfectly on the 20-inch Budnik wheels. These modern alloys, and other details like the LED halo lights, set the tone for plenty more well-integrated upgrades within.
The dual attitude of performance and luxury continues inside. For example, the black interior is what you want on a muscle car. But it's also a great coordinating color with the roof, and it has a premium look - right down to the button-top presentation on the rear seats. This was restored with care, and so the seats, door panels, carpeting, and headliner all have the feeling of a quality investment. This was built for the driver, and so you have great classic features, like the high-back front bucket seats and a center console in-between. These are joined by thoughtful upgrades like the Budnik steering wheel done in a matching pattern to the exterior alloys. This is mounted on a tilt column so you get a clear view to the upgrade Dakota Digital gauge package. There are nice upgrades like cup holders and power locks with keyless entry/alarm. And because you're going to want to share the experience with family and friends, this classic accommodates with everything from cold-blowing air conditioning to a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and powered subwoofers.
Under the hood is both aggression and shine. You can tell they invested nicely to get this 454 cubic-inch V8 so tidy and bright. And within this style is a ton of substance. This big block was upgraded with an aggressive street cam, Holley twin side draft air grabber, Edelbrock intake, and topped with a large 750 CFM double-pumper four-barrel carburetor. And this even has the right supporting components, including the March pulleys, vacuum brake assist, and large aluminum radiator. The long tube headers add power while contributing to the rumble of the X-pipe dual exhaust. The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is an ideal unit that's stout enough to handle the big power and also deliver overdrive comfort. The same strong and comfortable dual nature goes for the 12-bolt Positraction rear end. The suspension is upgraded to boxed rear trailing arms and sway bars front & rear. Plus, you have increased grip with modern Toyo tires, power steering, and a four-wheel power Baer disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors.
The sale comes complete with build receipts, maintenance records, and the owner's manual. This is the kind of classic that's built to be powerful, comfortable, and memorable by everyone who sees it. So if you want to show this Chevy off this weekend, you need to call today!
