1979 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
The third-generation Chevrolet Monte Carlo had one of the shortest runs in the model's history, and today these angular coupes are quite desirable. So find a low-mileage survivor-grade example, like this 1979 loaded coupe is already a treat... and that's before you even check out the affordable price.
What keeps this generation of Monte Carlos in demand is the design. It was an instant classic in the way it perfectly mixed a sporty and luxurious lifestyle. The sweeping curve in the front fender starts at the headlight and run all the way through the door line, and the rear fender is pure sheetmetal magic, too. So a coupe like this deserves its original Carmel Metallic paint, because the design flows like a sweet treat. And the reason why it all looks so good today is because it's a coupe that has averaged around 875 miles annually and is being consigned by the son of the original owner. So yes, this was the father's cherished car. And the proof is in the details right down to how the pinstripe not only highlights our favorite curves, but it also matches the vinyl roof.
The tan velour interior is a special option that does a great job of coordinating with the exterior hues. Such low mileage means it has retained a time capsule-like appearance, and so not even a button is missing from the plush seating. There's room for up to six people, but as Chevy's personal luxury machine, the driver will always be the king. That's why you have a fold down arm rest for those times when you want to cruise in individual comfort. Plus, you have power locks, a tilt wheel, an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for factory air conditioning. The factory steering wheel still has the Monte Carlo crest in the center, and it gives you an unobstructed view of the full gauge panel.
With a car this original so far, you're going to love lifting the hood. The 305 cubic-inch V8 looks correct, including the factory decals. And yes, this is the original numbers-matching powerplant. And because this was a one-owner cherished machine, the V8 was maintained correctly to still fire up nicely today. This generation Monte Carlo was significantly lighter than its predecessor. That means the torque-filled motor really knows how to get-up-n-go from the stoplights. Plus, with power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the original three-speed automatic transmission, you're looking at an effortless cruising classic.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the beautiful and affordable classic that's ready for the next enthusiast to cherish it. Will it be you? Call today!
