1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
""American Comfort, European Handling, they meet in Monte Carlo"" claimed the advertising for 1972. Ad men were illustrating the cars so they could take liberties with perspective and lengths as well as proportions in these ads, and they did, willfully. Although the customer could make their way to the GM showroom, and under no pressure (sic) make their own decision!
For consignment a 1972 version of the Monte Carlo that will need some TLC particularly on the body workings. Steel panels are solid and the paint is driver quality and could use a wet sand and buff. Or one could turn the key and drive it away and work on it as a project over time. Either way it's all here on the chrome and badging front, and the car runs smoothly.
This 1972 Monte Carlo and it is fairly clean with a few faults in the paint. Placer Gold for this 2-door hardtop, which has had its vinyl top stripped, although, has plenty of nicely preserved chrome trimmings. An egg crate grille, single headlights, a rear bumper that works with the rear quarter to house the taillights and there is nothing but sweetness from 1972 here on the Classic Auto Mall floor. Not to mention the straight panels and decent gaps, we can serve up plenty for your satisfaction. 15-inch rally wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped in good raised white type rubber all around.
Nice black vinyl showing in faux leather formed panels separated by buttons, covers the door panels. A clean door pull and opening handle and armrest are on as well so now we can move to the inside! To add some class is a nicely preserved burl walnut applique dash, complete with all the buttons, knobs and levers for the drivers visual and comfort. A radio with an under mounted CD player is carefully mounted into the dash as well as A/C which consigner states needs charged. Good black carpet flooding the bottom. On top we note a beautifully tight headliner with no marks on it with a large near showroom bench across the back of the car below this headliner.
Now blessing the engine bay is a 350ci V8 GM crate motor with a 4-bolt main. A single 4-barrel Edelbrock carburetor is atop the nicely repainted orange block and valve covers. Hoses are supple and there is no corrosion to be seen, just a bit of dust. A 3-speed automatic transmission is on back, and a 12-bolt rear is noted.
Nice and clean, all black and shiny, and structurally sound underneath. Looks like a new coating of black underneath. Independent coil springs, and 4 link with coil springs are seen. Power disc brakes are on front and power drums on the rear.
A super quick starter, nice driver, smooth runner, good handler, and an overall nice car. Love the gold and black combo as well as all the chrome trimmings they put one back then! Also, a good cruiser and safe stopper.
An early 1970's color combo well preserved and a turnkey car for sure. A crate engine, and nice interior, and it has all the right stuff.
