In the same year the nation was facing the start of Watergate and the film premiere of The Godfather , Chevrolet was producing the first generation of their personal luxury car the Monte Carlo. This car was designed to be the best of all worlds with many options and plenty of performance to move a car of this size down the road. This one in particular features the largest of three engines, sporting the 454 CID V8. Despite the downgraded horsepower rating from 1971, this big block Chevy still was putting out 270 horsepower and was driven through a strong TH400 automatic transmission. This Monte Carlo is a true survivor with only 36,000 original miles on the numbers matching drive train. The highly optioned interior is also original and in excellent shape. Slide inside and you will find yourself surrounded in luxury with cushy bucket seats, wood-grained dash, and the classic horseshoe style GM shifter. As you slip it into gear and set off on your cruise, this low-mileage classic will make you feel like you have stepped back into time. The ride is smooth and soft as you float across the surface of road in style. If you decide to stop by and pick up some friends, you won t have to worry about the back of the car drooping down with the functioning level control system that was a rare option and was equipped straight from the factory. This car is one of the few remaining numbers matching 454 cars and the only one documented in the registry. After 18 years of ownership the current owner is ready to part with this beauty, but needs it to go to a good home! This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom.
