1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
This beautiful 1985 Monte SS G Body has to be one of the finer examples of an all original Ultra Low Mileage Survivor of its kind out there today!! I purchased the car right out of the original owners garage last summer where it was hidden since new with only seeing minimal road use over its original ownership. I knew about the car hiding out as my father actually ordered and sold it BRAND NEW to the original owner in 1985! The original owner would startthe car over the years buthad actually not licensed and driventhe caron the roadsince 1992.I havepictures of original owners “85 SS” vanity plates with the ’92 tag sticker as the car sat idlein his garage minutes before it was pushed out and put on the tow truck to go back to my garage. In the Monte’s first 7 years of its life (1985-1992) the original owner along with his wife had only accumulated 2211 Kms (1373 MILES) on the odometer. The car still retains all of its original factory installed OEM parts. The original engine compartment looks like it did back when the car was brand new including all the original GM belts, oses, acuum Lines etc. If you actually walk around and look over the car in person you could easily imagine yourself standing at the Chevy dealership back in 1985 looking at a Brand New 1985 Monte SS model on the showroom floor. Fortunately,the fact that it was left to sit undisturbed and covered from UV rays and moisture for so many yearswas the realreason behind the preservation of this all original survivor car. The long hibernation for the Monte made for an incredible findfor meto say the least! It was just like those stories you read in car magazines of “Unmolested Survivor Finds” and “Low Mileage Barn Finds" etc. Car has to be seen to be apprieciated this is 100% the REAL DEAL SHOW CAR WINNER HERE FOR THE TAKING! For potential buyers it should be noted that the A/C does not blow cold as it has lost its charge over the many years of sitting. It is still setup for R12 and that refrigerant is not available in Canada anymore. I chose to leave it as is and original therefore not converting it over to the current R134. The Monte has been licensed and driven very little this year but the speedometer is ever so slowing climbing. Since the uncovering the mileage now stands at 2340 Kms (1454 All Original Miles). The headliner from 30 years is starting to sag in a few spots and at some point to make it perfect should be replaced but it is only original ONCE!I have kept anything I changed on the car which was only all the fluids and filters (oil and trans filter bagged) and the delco battery is new. The other thing was the rad core section had to be redone at a cost of $500 + just due to some corrosion. I kept the center section as it had unique 305 stencil marking from the factory.All original tires, ll original interior (floor mats are not just put in to keep carpets mint). Engine bay is award winning and 100% original. The headlights even have line markings from Quality Control checks (blue pencil markings on pass side head light sealed beam bulb).Please tell your friends, amily members and Monte Carlo Fans about the auction if you think they want such a beautiful car…Don’t miss the opportunity to own this beautiful survivor car.

I will assist in getting the car loaded up if need be and prefer a door to door shipping service if you do not plan on picking it up yourself. Years back I did sell a couple of personal vehicles to the USA where the buyer would come in person with the cash and a trailer and tow it home. Ideally this would be the best situation and preferred by me but not a requirement for a successful transaction. The car was built in Arlington Texas and will have no problem going back to the USA. The car currently has a clean Ontario title in my name. There are No Liens on the car and it comes with all Ontario paper work to assist in exporting the car to the USA. The Car is licensed and road worthy within Ontario for local buyers. It will be sold as is if going out of Province/Country. If a serious buyer wants to look over the car in person it can be done by appointment only (US buyer feel free to come for a nice drive into Canada and have a look). I even have a short video of the tow truck pulling it out of its bat cave after 23 years of storage. I would gladly share the video to interested parties as well.
