The 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was built to be Chevy's personal luxury coupe. So it's great to find one that has all the correct factory pieces to feel premium - everywhere from the A/C interior to the vinyl hardtop. It makes for the right kind of vintage upper-class cruiser.
The Monte Carlo is a terrific classic American design, and this example captures the era perfectly. The sheet metal has crisp lines combined with a flowing profile. And the long hood really lets this model take .....
its time to properly showcase all this Detroit steel. The factory-correct Placer Gold paint gives you the classic look, and the white vinyl roof is the perfect way to convey 1970s style. Plus, you want a '72 like this because it's the end of an era. The new bumper laws would take effect the next year, so this was the final time these shiny chrome kings would fit so nicely into the overall design. While this coupe is significant, it's also not a museum piece. So it has the right look of an impressive classic that also won't make you nervous to take out and enjoy on the open road.
Just like the exterior, the interior features the factory-correct color theme, and the earth-tones make for quite the 1970s time capsule. There's a thoughtful level of detail here where you get the rarely-seen comfortable cloth upholstery, smooth walnut-like trim, and even the dome light works. And we bet there is going to be more than one person that will comment how the door panels aren't even missing a button. Slipping behind the wheel reminds you of why the Monte Carlo is a personal luxury car. The steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column for comfort, and all the right controls are at your fingertips - including the sliders for the cold-blowing factory air conditioning.
Under the hood is a nicely detailed 350 cubic-inch V8. This is the correct displacement for this coupe, and it has a very clean stock style. In fact, you'll mostly spot good maintenance and added details like the HEI distributor. The Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor inhales deeply, and it has a healthy but dignified exhale with the dual exhaust feeding Cherry Bomb mufflers. And because this was made for easy cruising, you have the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide Cooper Cobra tires on bright Rally wheels.
This is that solid factory-spec Monte Carlo cruiser that's pure vintage fun. So if you are looking to drive that '70s dream, don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
