1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Hardtop For consignment, a 1972 version of the Monte Carlo that will need some TLC particularly on the body workings. Steel panels are solid and the paint is driver quality that could use a wet sand and buff. Or one could turn the key and drive it away and work on it as a project over time. Either way its all here on the chrome and badging front, as well as having a rebuilt engine, a lifetime warranty on the transmission and the car runs smoothly. Exterior This 1972 Monte Carlo and it is fairly clean with faults in the medium blue metallic paint that was applied in the 1980s for this 2-door hardtop, which has a fairly new vinyl top covering the roof, although severe rust bubbling is showing under nearly every part of the vinyl. There are plenty of nicely preserved chrome trimmings and they all are retaining a nice blingy shine. An egg crate grille, single headlights, a rear bumper that works with the rear quarter to house the taillights and there is nothing but sweetness from 1972 here on the Classic Auto Mall floor. Not to mention the straight panels and decent gaps, we can serve up plenty for your satisfaction. 15-inch rally wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped in good raised white type rubber all around from the 45th week of 2022. Interior Nice black vinyl showing in faux leather formed panels with snappy embossed tuck and roll and buttoned motif covers the door panels. A clean door pull and opening handle and armrest are on as well so now we can move to the inside! To add some class is a nicely preserved burl walnut applique dash, complete with all the buttons, knobs and levers for the drivers visual aid and comfort. An aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette radio fills the factory hole in the dash with the heater and AC slides above and a black padded topper caps things off nicely. Slightly faded black carpet is flooding the floors and floats the very well preserved buttoned and tuck and rolled black vinyl front split bench seat. On top, we note a beautifully tight headliner with no marks on it and a large near showroom bench across the back of the car below this headliner. We note some heavy surface rust at the bottoms of the inner doors that isnt too far gone to be remediated. Drivetrain Now blessing the slightly dusty and patina finished engine bay is a rebuilt and balanced 400ci V8. A single 4-barrel Holley 650cfm double pumper carburetor sits atop the orange painted block and intake manifold. Chrome is on for the valve coverings as well as the air cleaner lid. The hoses are supple and we see a newer brake master cylinder bolted to the booster. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission is on back and comes with a lifetime warranty, and a 10-bolt 3.45 geared rear is noted. Undercarriage Fairly clean with a light mix of surface rust, factory undercoating and road dirt for this structurally sound environment. Independent coil springs are seen for the suspension in the front, and a 4 link with coil springs are seen providing the ride in the back. Power disc brakes are on front and power drums on the rear. Headers feed down from the mill to surface rusted dual exhaust with Turbo mufflers that run to the rear of the car. Drive-Ability A super quick starter, nice driver, smooth runner, good handler, and an overall nice car. I love the blue and black combo and the blazing chrome trim creates an exhilarating overall look. My time behind the wheel left me with the opinion of this car being a good cruiser and safe stopper with the only issue noted being the AC blowing warm. An interesting take on the final year 1st generation for the luxury muscle Monte Carlo. Well preserved and a turnkey car for sure with a good amount of documentation, and it has all the right stuff! 1H57H2B546903 1-Chevrolet H-Monte Carlo 57-2 Door Hardtop Sport Coupe H-350ci V8 2bbl 2-1972 B-Baltimore, MD Assy Plant 546903-Sequential Unit Number TRIM TAG ST 72 13857-1972 Monte Carlo 2 Door Hardtop Sport Coupe BDY B37??43-Baltimore Body # TR 708 A52-Black Vinyl Bench PNT 56 B-Cream Yellow, Black Top 11B-2nd Week November Classic Auto Mall is a 336,000-square foot classic and special interest automobile showroom, featuring over 850 vehicles for sale with showroom space for up to 1,000 vehicles.
