GM Never Built A 1983 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Convertible, But Here’s One2
You’re in the market for a G-Body Monte Carlo. You’d like to nab something rare and distinctive, but you still need to leave a couple coins in the bank– under 15K would be optimal. The question is: Does such a mythical machine even exist?
Luckily, our sleep-deprived interns – who are intermittently dispensed Red Bull and cold cuts and spend 24-hours a day skimming through the Interwebs – stumbled across a hot slice of rolling nostalgia that ticks all the boxes: a 1983 Chevrolet Monte Carlo custom convertible.
Listed for sale on Craigslist in Bronx, New York, the seller tells us the fourth-generation Monte was treated to 15K in custom work, most of which we presume was spent sawing off its lid. While the cut lines appear clean, the fit of the convertible top is, erm, not up to par and your best to keep it stowed at all costs.
Even if you’re caught in some foul weather, the Monte Carlo’s V8 should help get you out of a jam quickly, minimizing damage to its red velour interior.
With just 57,000 original miles and in full working condition, this 1983 Chevrolet Monte Carlo convertible could be the one if you’re willing to part with $12,995.
Have a peek at the listing here and then let us know; would you ever drop $13k on this Risky Business-era custom Monte?

Uh, not likely. Post factory convertible jobs look utterly horrible with the roof up. Case in point.
Oldsmobile never made a convertible Cutlass Ciera, yet I saw one and took pictures of it. It is probbaly one of the very few FWD six-seat (dual bench) convertibles. I know that there are many other converted sedans out there.
