1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
The 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was built to be Chevy's personal luxury coupe. So it's great to find one that has been freshly restored with the correct pieces so that it not only feels vintage, but there's a smooth V8, A/C interior, and much motor to makes this feel luxurious, too. The Monte Carlo is a terrific classic American design, and this example captures the era perfectly. The sheetmetal has crisp lines combined with a flowing profile. And the long hood really lets this style take its time to properly showcase all this Detroit metal. But what really does the best job of showcasing all of this is a serious investment in a quality respray of the correct Sequoia Green paint. It gives you the classic look, but now a deep luster that comes from a modern clearcoat finish. And the nicely coordinated green vinyl roof is the perfect way to convey '70s premium. Plus, you want a '72 like this because it's the end of an era. The new bumper laws would take effect the next year, so this was the final time these chrome kings would fit so nicely into the overall design. This history is why these were restored to a mirror-like shine. Completing this distinguished brightwork package is complete trim, delectate badging, and iconic Rally wheels. Just like the exterior, the interior is quite green and quite nicely finished. There have been investments so the carpeting feels fresh and the cloth seats are supple. And you'll just love how there isn't a single button out of place on the seatbacks or matching door panels. As a personal luxury car, all the right controls are at your fingertips. The sea of green is broken up by the walnut-like dash panel that features an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. And the factory dual-spoke steering wheel on a tilt column gives you a clear view at the sporty full gauge panel. It almost looks like day one under the hood. The 350 cubic-inch V8 is the correct displacement for the coupe, and the block is year-correct. It has been freshly painted so the classic Chevy orange radiates from within the dark engine bay. The crisp hoses, new hood insulation pad, correct decals, and all the other detail work will make you proud to lift the hood at car shows. Of course, a coupe like this was made for driving, too. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front makes it easy to enjoy this hardtop anytime. The sale comes with terrific documentation, including the factory buildsheet, original warranty card, owner's manual, and service manuals. So this is the Monte Carlo that has been given all the right investments to continue on the premium feeling. So if you demand true luxury from your vintage car experience, don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
