Description for Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1972

The model epitomized the personal luxury car niche during its era and this 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo represents it well, with a fine looking, era-appropriate shade draped over its exterior and a very strong running V8 joining other top tier components both under the hood and inside the doors to provide a great driving experience. This vintage Chevy now wears Forest Green metallic paint that's just a stone's throw from the original color, but with some...metallic flake added to both the green of the body and the white of the roof that really comes alive in the sunlight. A closer inspection will provide a greater appreciation for what's on display - besides the visual impact of the paint, the body lines look very precise, both the front and rear bumpers are clean and level and clear glass with fresh rubber seals surrounds the cabin. The distinctive egg-crate front grille was added the very year this '72 came out to close out the first generation of the model and it too is in great shape. There's definitely a lot to like here - this is a great looking ride, chock full of '70s style with its generous wheelbase, long hood area and sloping rear roofline. The green interior sports a stock look and a strong overall condition, with front bucket seats wearing new vinyl covers as they sit to either side of a center console bearing its signature Chevy "horseshoe" shifter. Fresh green carpeting lines the floor, with a pair of Monte Carlo-branded floor mats in front. The dash area has received the attention needed to bring out its best and features factory gauges in its burlwood grain instrument panel that are joined by aftermarket displays to keep tabs on temperature, oil pressure and voltage. In-dash vents just below are a strong sign that this Monte Carlo left the factory with air conditioning already on board and a new Vintage Air climate control system is now in place to keep the interior ice cold for the summer and as warm as you could want during the colder months. As you cruise in this classic you'll enjoy a quality audio experience. The vintage-looking RetroSound stereo features a USB port to expand your sonic options and teams with a collection of JBL speakers and dedicated amp. The trunk area is very spacious with a solid floor pan and full size spare just in case. Raise the hood on this classic and you'll be greeted by a well-detailed engine compartment, at the center of which rests a 350 cubic inch V8 that's running very strong. It's wearing an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and intake manifold underneath its chrome air cleaner to maximize its output, along with a pair of ceramic coated headers that reduce back pressure while sending a great note out of the newly added exhaust system. An oversized radiator sits up front to help keep engine temperatures down in more demanding conditions and the added serpentine belt system not only looks sharp, but also offers improved pulley contact to reduce belt slippage and help everything run more efficiently. The engine pairs with a 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission that provides slip free shifts. Power steering makes navigating this classic easy, while power brakes that feature discs up front offer dependable stops, assisted by the new brake booster and master cylinder also on board. The wiring on this vintage Chevy has been replaced from front to back with American Autowire harnesses to improve reliability. This undeniably cool '70s cruiser rides on a set of 15" stock wheels with Chevy Motor Division hubcaps that are wrapped with Performance GT Grand Prix tires. Looking ultra sharp and running great, this 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo offers a great combination of classic style and drivability. Call today!
