The Chevrolet Monte Carlo hasn’t been apart of the General Motors‘ lineup since 2007, but from 1970 through to 1988, the big coupe was a staple of the Chevrolet portfolio and decently popular with customers.
GM fans who miss the Monte Carlo may like what Columbus, Ohio classic car dealer Cruisin Classics currently has sitting on its lot: a well kept 1970 Monte Carlo with a numbers-matching 402 cubic inch V8 engine.
As mentioned above, 1970 was the first model year for the Monte Carlo, so this car is one of the earliest examples of the now defunct Chevy two-door. This car left the factory well equipped, featuring power steering, power brakes, air conditioning and a front bench seat, as opposed to the available bucket seats. Cruisin Classics also swapped out the front drum brakes for a more modern pair of discs, ensuring this big Chevy can slow down as well as its 402 V8 can get it up to speed.
Many 1960s and 1970s classic cars are offered in eye-catching shades of blue, red, green or yellow, for example, but this 1970 Monte Carlo is a bit more conservative, wearing some rather drab Gobi Beige exterior paint. The interior is also beige and features brown wood grain trim and what appears to be a gold vinyl material covering parts of the dash and doors. Those looking for a car to evoke some nostalgia may want to call up Cruisin Classics, as this beige-on-beige Monte Carlo will certainly make it feel like the 1970s.
Cruisin Classics is asking $24,995 for the 1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. It seems fairly confident it will be able to find a customer willing to pay that for the car, saying in the ad that it “will probably go fast so anybody that is looking at this with any intention at all should probably just go ahead and do it.” If that sounds like you, check out the listing at this link.
