Hankering for a slice of mid-70s nostalgia finished in Liberace’s favorite color? In that case, step up to this immaculate Gold-on-Tan 1977 Chevrolet Monte Carlo with just 29,582 miles.
The 1977 model year marked the last year of the large, second-generation Monte Carlos, and the nameplate made the switch from the A-body platform to the G-body platform one year later. In that final year, Chevrolet built 411,038 Monte Carlos. Most of them today, of course, are scrap. So to find a 1977 Chevrolet Monte Carlo this darn clean and with such low miles is like opening a time capsule.
Up front sits the base 305 cubic-inch V8 that’s good for just 145 horsepower; even the optional 350 ci V8 produced just 170 hp in 1977. It certainly won’t be the fastest car on the road, but at least you’ll ride in style with a period-correct Black Landau roof, 15-inch wheels, a big bench seat, and perhaps most importantly, an under-dash CB radio.
The seller, who claims to be the just the second-owner of the car, assures the Monte is rust free and has been well maintained and garage kept.
It might not be the most desirable vehicle in today’s market but it’s hard to argue with an asking price of just $9,800. And that’s negotiable. You’d have to drop another $2,500 (plus tax) to get into a 2015 Chevrolet Spark, and even then you still wouldn’t ride under the shade of a pristine Landau roof.
