Ever since Chevrolet's inception, they have been known to be innovative and a definite force to reckon with in North America. When Pontiac introduced their instant hit Pontiac Grand Prix in 1962, Chevrolet saw an opening to compete with Pontiac's popular platform. Thus the Chevrolet Monte Carlo was born as a direct competitor to the Grand Prix. The Monte Carlo was produced until 2007 across six generations, with a brief hiatus from 1989 to 1994. If a vintage personal luxury vehicle is what you are looking for, then look no further than this slick restored 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo with 109,000 miles on the clock.
This 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo underwent a complete restoration in 2022, hence the pristine blue and white paint job. A pair of white racing stripes run on the trunk and hood. The 1971 model of the Monte Carlo saw the front fascia equipped with squircle headlamp bezels and a chrome grille with 1971 in Roman numerals on the Monte Carlo crest. Onto the rear, the vertically placed taillights feature chrome dividers. Copious amounts of chrome can be seen on the car's front and rear bumpers, window trims, and almost everywhere. The car is topped with a white painted roof. It sits on a set of steelies with chrome center caps. The interior features a black finish. The dashboard is inlaid with a wood grain trim. The original air conditioning and the radio are still in place. Behind the 2-spoke Monte Carlo script emblazoned steering wheel can be seen a trio of black-faced instrument clusters, namely the fuel, speedometer, and an analog clock. Auxiliary gauges from Sunpro are placed on the lower left and include a temperature meter, battery, and oil. New carpets are also in place.
Most of the restoration on this 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was for the exterior body and its internals. It comes with a new 383cu (6.3L) V8 engine coupled with a new Turbo Hydra-Matic three-speed automatic transmission. New headers, cams, and a new positraction are also reportedly in place. A set of Cooper Cobra radial G/T tires provide traction and control. Front disc brakes and rear drum brakes provide the necessary stopping power.
