1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Call it a survivor... Call it a time capsule... Call it the perfect '70s vehicle. This 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo has remained over four decades without being changed, messed with, or even switching owners. That means original colors, the original 350 V8 under the hood, and plenty of great original features like A/C.If you're going to drive a 1970s automobile, you need a 1970s color on it. Burnt Orange is as cool as disco, and it's code-62F on the Monte Carlo's cowl tag, so that's what it wears today. The presentation is amazing, and when the light hits it right, it looks like a desert sunset. And with panels this straight, the nice paint really highlights every subtle curve that helped make Chevrolet's personal luxury car a star. Competing with the paint for shine meant making sure there was a mirror-like polish on areas like the wide chrome bumpers, full rocker trim, and exclusive grille with Monte Carlo badge. Even the iconic rally wheels seem extra bright. Those who know paint codes, know that the "F" means this is wearing its correct dark brown vinyl roof for an added premium touch.This is Chevrolet's personal luxury car, so the interior came upscale and well-finished, and that's certainly still the case with this survivor car today. Saddle brown coordinates with the bodywork quite nicely, and the uniform appearance on the seats, carpeting, and door panels truly make this feel like a time machine. The bucket seat option means the driver gets true individual luxury, and we all love the look of the desirable center console. Not only is the burled walnut simulated wood paneling seen there repeated across the entire dash, but also the iconic horseshoe shifted gives the this luxury machine some sporty flair. The same goes for the correct round gauge panel that's clearly seen through the factory steering wheel. While the full package feels like an untouched gem, there are a few upgrades. You now have a more modern AM/FM/cassette stereo with digital tuner, and the factory air conditioning has been converted to R134a for easy servicing.The level of unmolested care continues under the hood with the original 350 cubic-inch V8. Its honest appearance also leads us to believe its low 72,781 miles on the odometer is accurate. This trusty small-block has the kind of power and plentiful torque to move this big coupe with ease. It keeps its comfortable cruising nature, with great driving features such as the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.Complete with owner's manual, Protect-O-Plate, and more original docs, the classic car world is beginning to catch on to how special a Monte Carlo like this is. That means a beautiful, original V8 example like this will not remain so affordable for too much longer. Call today!!!
