Photo of a 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo (COOL RUNNING)

About

I bought this car 1) Because i have always loved first generation Monte Carlos, and 2) My Ford F150 is heading to the body shop soon to have all the body work done and get painted. I might lose the truck for 6 to 8 months. So i told my wife we need to get a second car and why not a '71 Monte :) The car had not been on the road since 1995, when i looked at it initially i felt pretty good about it, the interior had already been done except for the door panels which were'nt in terrible shape, frame was solid, trunk and floors were solid, definately needed tires and other mechanical repairs, but that's what i do for a living. 1971 Monte Carlo, original numbers matching 350 small block with a TH350 trans, Edelbrock Performer intake, 600 cfm Holley, now has Headers with an x-pipe, and a pair of chambered mufflers, and it runs like a raped ape. Can't wait to take it down to the track and see what it'll do!

Specs

1971 Monte Carlo Numbers matching 350 V-8, 85K original miles, 350 Turbo trans, Edelbrock Performer intake, Holley 600, Just installed a pair of headers with an x-pipe and a pair of Summit racing chambered mufflers.

Factory Options

No a/c, No power steering, bench seat, column shift.

Mods

New set of rally wheels and radial t/a's for it (245/60R15), new carpet, and seats reupolstered. new windshield, replaced rear shocks and springs. New fuel tank and sending unit, new front
brake rotors, calipers, pads, hoses, and wheel bearings. Hei distributor, 8mm wires, New master cylinder, proportioning valve,front brake lines, and several electrical repairs to get everything working like it's suppose to.
