Lifetime west coast car. Mostly original with spectacular 9-passenger interior. 383/automatic. Loaded with 3 rows of seats, overhauled dual A/C, power windows, power rear window, and more. Beautiful wagon thats exactly right for your next road trip!This awesome Monaco is everything thats awesome about vintage wagons. Big V8? Check. Three rows of seats? Check. Wood paneling? Check. This is the car that delivered families to the Grand Canyon and Disneyworld and camping trips in Michigan, offering room for everyone and everything. Maybe thats why vintage wagons are so popular today-theyre the anti-minivan, the perfect way to take the family on vacation with style. This cool 1966 Dodge Monaco wagon spent the entirety of its life out west where its warm and dry; first in Denver, then California, then Nevada, then Texas. As a result, its spectacularly solid and clean with no rot or other issues hiding underneath. Thats mostly original paint, too, so you can tell it has been loved. Only the tailgate seems to have been repainted, a finish thats only a shade off. The rest is vintage 1966 Mopar enamel and original woodgrain Dynoc decals so it has a very authentic look. If youve experienced Mopars of this vintage, then you know the lovely solid sound the doors make when they close and the whole thing fits together extremely well-typical of a quality survivor. Theres also plenty of bright chrome trim to set it off, including the roof rack, bumpers, and ultra-fine grille, and its all in great condition. The Monaco is a great-looking car and in wagon form, it still looks low, wide, and sleek. The interior is absolutely spectacular, offering three rows of seats for a total of nine passengers if everyones really cozy. The tan vinyl upholstery is in great condition and looks rather upscale for something so utilitarian. Slide behind the wheel and youll find one of the coolest dashboards of the ‘60s, a racy twin-pod setup that houses all the vital gauges, although the clock is sadly not working. We also really dig the dash-mounted rear-view mirror, the big steering wheel with horn ring, and vintage compass mounted to the drivers left-remember those? Options include power windows and factory A/C, including a rear unit for back seat passengers, and it has been recently overhauled so its quite effective. Theres also 6-way power front seat, power rear window, and the ever-popular folding third row of seats, so its great if youve got kids. The factory AM radio is still in the dash although the speaker does not seem to be connected-easy to upgrade if a road trip is in your future. Carpets and windlace are new, but the excellent headliner is original and still looks great. Its also practical, as the rear seats all fold flat so the wagon will swallow a 4x8 sheet of plywood with the tailgate closed. Who needs a minivan, anyway? This is a big car and a big car deserves a big powerplant. In the Monacos case, its a 383 cubic inch V8 with a 4-barrel carburetor making 325 horsepower and a rather impressive 425 lb-ft. of torque. This is a hauler with muscle car DNA in its veins. It has been recently and extensively serviced, including a new Edelbrock carburetor, new fuel pump, full tune-up, new battery, and a rebuilt power steering pump, so its ready for the road. The engine bay is nicely detailed with correct corporate turquoise engine enamel, a factory air cleaner assembly, and original-style exhaust manifolds. It starts easily, idles nicely, and pulls the big wagon around without much effort at all-its really fun to drive. The A/C system has been rebuilt and includes a modern compressor and R134a refrigerant so its effective and easy to service. The brakes have also been rebuilt including a new dual master cylinder and new wheel cylinders, hoses, rear drums, and NOS shoes. Chryslers indestructible TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic shifts cleanly and spins 2.76 gears out back, making this a car thats practically built for highway cruising. It also offers new shocks and fresh sway bar bushings up front, so it rides beautifully and tracks well. A new muffler and tailpipe give it a hushed V8 sound that feels appropriate and youll note that theres some dust and dirt underneath, but exactly zero signs of rust or rot. This is a really clean car. Factory 14-inch steel wheels carry optional Charger spinner hubcaps and a set of recent 215/75/14 whitewall radials.Documentation includes the original owners manual and Certi-Card, plus a factory shop manual. We also have extensive photos of the recent repair and service work.This is a really cool car. Yes, well admit that we love wagons, but who doesnt? The combination of horsepower, style, options, and ultra-clean survivor condition make this car a winner in every way that matters. With lots of recent service, its ready to enjoy, and there arent many cars that put a bigger smile on peoples faces better than a vintage wagon with wood on its sides.
