1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Restomod
Serious performance and grand touring luxury were the hallmarks of the best Chevrolet Monte Carlos. And this classic 1972 example only amplifies those attitudes with everything from a big block performance V8, to slick red paint, to a comfy custom interior. This coupe is an upgrade from the original, so you want a paint that let's everyone know that. That's why we love this slick red paint. The modern clear coat does a great job of highlighting the crisp lines that are the hallmark of Chevy's personal luxury machine. But there's also an electric-like quality in this high-gloss application that gives this car a radiant personality. Competing with the paint for shine is the mirror-like polish on areas like the form-fitting chrome bumpers and full trim. Uniting the ideas of shine, premium, and modern aggression are the large 18-inch Intro five-spoke alloys. More performance and luxury continues inside. The interior follows the factory's premium button-top pattern, but now it has been restored for a custom two-tone. It combines the aggressive red of the exterior and expertly blends it with a muscle car-like black. In fact, the full round gauge panel and iconic horseshoe shifter will make you feel like you're in a Super Sport Chevy. While this is truly a driver's machine, it also has the space to share with family and friends. That's why this classic also accommodates with everything from new provisions for air conditioning to a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with subwoofer. The moment you open the hood, you instantly realize that this Monte Carlo earns all of its aggressive upgrades. Sure, a few lucky ones had the big 454 V8 in '72, but even those weren't as big as this. Within the dark and tidy engine bay, you'll see a 502 cubic-inch Chevrolet crate motor. It has been built correctly, including a four-barrel carburetor, GM Performance heads, and long tube headers that feed a growling H-pipe dual exhaust. Not only is this a big power machine, but it also has all the right supporting components, including March pulleys, steel-braided hoses, and a large aluminum radiator. Plus, the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is stout enough to get all this muscle to the pavement. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll see a clean and fresh presentation that comes from in a classic that has only been driven about 5,000 miles since its restoration. And with upgrades like Baer four-wheel disc brakes and modern Nitto ZR-rated tires, you'll be firmly in control to add plenty more miles to the odometer. You can tell there has been a ton of time, thought, and money invested in restoring this unique Chevy. So when you can get your hands on a classic that's equal parts vintage luxury and muscle car, you know you have to hurry on something this special. Call now!
