From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

For reasons that arent altogether clear to us, the first-generation Monte Carlos remain extremely affordable. These cool coupes have a classic look thats a bit sporty and a bit elegant, and with the right upgrades, they make fantastic resto-mods that drive beautifully and have room for the whole family. If youre going to drive a 1970 automobile, theres no need to put a 1970 color on it, and the bright silver paint this Monte Carlo sports gives it an updated look that doesnt erase the cool coupes original lines. Of course, nothing in 1970 looked this good, thanks to a full repaint fairly recently. The shiny paint really emphasizes the Monte Carlos classic good looks, particularly the subtle fender curves that are highlighted when the light hits it just right. Fit and finish are quite good and totally out of proportion to a car this affordable, and the lack of a vinyl roof provides an athletic look that works quite well on the big coupe. As Chevrolets top-of-the-line personal luxury car, it just wouldnt do to have it look anonymous, so theres plenty of chrome and stainless which is a mix of new and original and it all really makes this car stand out in a big way. The gorgeous black interior also replicates the factory specifications (it was originally green on green), and offers room for six and that unique 70s brand of cool. The seat covers, carpets, and headliner were recently installed so its all in good shape, and a few custom upgrades make it more enjoyable today without spoiling the factory look. Check out the nicely integrated stereo system that uses an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit and upgraded speakers, the leather-wrapped wheel, and heavy-duty floor mat. The gauges appear to be original and in good shape, although we dont quite trust the gas gauge. The burled walnut dashboard gives it an upscale feel, and theres plenty of room in the spacious trunk. The big 454 cubic inch V8 moves this big coupe with ease, offering plenty of smooth torque and a few performance modifications to make it entertaining. The engine itself is nicely detailed, wearing Chevy Orange paint on the block and heads, a chrome dress-up kit, and an Edelbrock carb on top. The satin black inner fenders suggest that the paint job was very carefully done, and theres a lot of new equipment under the hood, including the alternator and tune-up parts. The TH400 3-speed automatic transmission was made to live behind big blocks like this, so it doesnt mind the torque, and as a luxury coupe, there are highway gears in the 10-bolt rear end. Its a strong runner and has a great sound thanks to a pair of performance mufflers that exhale right behind the rear wheels. The chassis is tidy enough for a car in this price class, and there are even cross-drilled rotors for the front disc brakes. Staggered Boss Motorsports wheels give it a modern look and carry 245/40/18 front and 255/55/18 rear Continental performance radials that are tall enough to fit properly in the Monte Carlos big wheel arches. Its crazy that these cars havent caught on yet, but the upside is that you can get this extremely nice big block Monte Carlo for the price of a Hyundai. How cool is that? Call today!
