Over the past 105 years, Chevrolet has built such a vast empire of lovable offerings that some of them just seem to get overlooked. Possibly the most substantial victim of that unfortunate phenomenon is the storied Monte Carlo. Introduced in 1970, and proudly parked in over half a million driveways during its first three years of production, the brand's 'personal luxury coupe' was decidedly cool. And, not as ostentatious as a Corvette or as boorish as a Camaro, the car spent most of its life as the poster child for evolving automotive tastes. This classy Monte is a solid cruiser that's benefitted from careful restoration as needed. And if you're looking for an awesome classic that's clean, attractive and ready to roll, you simply won't find more muscle for the money!

PIGMENT OF POWER

Counter to the bowtie brand's Camaro offering, the Monte Carlo sought a more refined and sophisticated buyer. In fact, one could almost say that Chevy employed the same proven tactic that had seen Plymouth successfully market the GTX next to the Road Runner. Mixing correct cosmetics with a killer stance, this attractive coupe definitely conveys a genteel aesthetic in the realm of broad-shouldered muscle cars. In the not too distant past, the car's straight 'coke bottle' sheetmetal was stripped bare and carefully refinished in deep black 2-stage paint. Once that pigment was buffed to an excellent shine, a fresh vinyl roof was supplemented with factory-spec trim. And today, this knight rolls as one razor-sharp A-Body that looks good, runs great and is poised to turn heads for years to come!

FUEL INJECTED FURY

In its heyday Chevrolet's iconic 402 played the role of all things to all people. Introduced in 1970, it continued to be marketed as popular Turbo-Jet 396 offerings in the Chevelle line, was labeled Turbo-Jet 400 for Monte Carlo duty, and retained an eponymous identity in Chevy trucks. Lift this coupe's long hood and you'll find 402 cubic inches of era-correct big block! Power originates when a polished air cleaner threads wind into FiTech electronic fuel injection, which is metered by liquid-filled FiTech pressure gauges that cap a large surge tank. That air/fuel mixture travels from a proven Edelbrock Air Gap intake to lightweight Edelbrock Performer RPM heads, which ride under polished Edelbrock valve covers. Beneath those covers, quality roller rockers work well with a mild, flat-tappet cam. Sparks get sequenced from MSD 6AL ignition to an MSD Blaster SS coil, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor and MSD Street Fire Wires. Spent gases roar through aluminized pipes via restored exhaust manifolds. Charge comes courtesy of a fresh alternator, which spins beside a 7-blade pulley fan, factory power steering and a modern Sanden AC compressor. A correctly decaled radiator makes good use of pliable GM hoses and a correct AC cap. And details like satin fenders, bright engine skin, a polished Edelbrock breather and a requisite Delco Moraine brake booster create attractive, purposeful aesthetics.

ACE ATHLETICS

Beneath this Chevy you'll find a clean undercarriage that appears to have benefitted from quite a bit of restoration. Rock-solid floorpans are dressed in a distinct combination of rugged undercoating and Satin Black paint. Behind the stout big block, a proven Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed automatic spins power to a familiar 12-bolt axle that's finished with big, 3.73 gears. That excellent drivetrain floats in a fully restored F41 Sport Suspension, which follows factory power steering with two power-assisted discs and two power-assisted drums. As previously mentioned, spent gases race from cast iron manifolds in to a series of aluminized pipes, which hang an H-shaped crossover in front of rowdy Flowmaster mufflers and polished stainless tips. And power meets the pavement through chromed REV 100 wheels, which spin 225/70R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As in front of 255/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As.

MONOCHROMATIC SOPHISTICATION

Pop the doors and you'll find a stylish Black interior that's way too crisp to be original equipment. Everything starts with high-back seats that look good, feel great and are all-day comfortable. Between those thrones, a wood-trimmed console provides tapered real estate for a factory horseshoe shifter. A wood-trimmed dash founds factory telemetry behind Vintage Air climate control, VDO accessory gauges and a correct Delco radio that complements a hidden Pioneer head unit in the glove box. That trio is framed in a tight headliner, attractive door panels and fresh carpet that's backed by fresh sound insulation. The driver pilots a familiar Rally steering wheel. And passengers stow luggage in a lit trunk that's finished with correct tools and a full-size spare tire.

You really can't ask for a cooler classic than this classy Chevy, especially when it comes to value. Offering great looks and proven performance, it's the perfect car for any enthusiast who wants a top-notch cruiser that's sorted, polished and ready to roll. So, what are you waiting for? Call your friends at RK Motors Charlotte and enjoy a little personal luxury!
