Back in the early 2000’s, Chevrolet produced a limited number of special edition Chevy Monte Carlos as a nod to the legendary NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt. Dubbed the Chevy Monte Carlo SS Intimidator, 3,333 units were produced, and now, this factory-fresh example just sold on Bring A Trailer for $31,000.
First delivered to Joe Lunghamer Chevrolet in Pontiac, Michigan, this special edition Chevy Monte Carlo was kept as part of a private collection, after which it acquired by the selling dealer.
The exterior features Black paint with Galaxy Silver Metallic accents and red striping, as well as Dale Earnhardt Signature Series Graphics with a prominent #3 added to both C-pillars. The rear sports a prominent trunk lid spoiler, while the silver ground effects bring the two-door closer to the pavement, framing 16-inch aluminum wheels with 225/60 Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires. There’s also a silver Intimidator badge on the trunk lid.
Inside, we find a black and gray interior with power-adjustable, heated seats. Large, red Bow Tie badges are in the headrests, while leather covers the sitters and the three-spoke multi-function steering wheel. Further details include Intimidator floor mats, a power sunroof, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a CD player, dual-zone climate control, and cruise control.
Pop the hood, and this special edition Chevy Monte Carlo runs a 3.8L V6 engine, rated at 200 horsepower from the factory. The ‘six drives the front wheels by way of a four-speed automatic transmission.
This particular example is number 2,292 of 3,333 units produced, and sports just 10 miles on the clock. The auction included the original window sticker, a certificate of authenticity, and a clean title, as well as the original window sticker, which lists the total new vehicle price at $29,710.
Final price for the auction was set at $31,000.
