1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo (1972 Monte)
Last updated Nov 8, 2010
This is my latest project, a SUPER SOLID 1972 Monte Carlo. It is a fairly well optioned car with a custom red interior, bucket seats, console shift, Power Windows, Power Locks, Power driver's seat, Air Conditioning, Sony CD player, Disk Brakes, 12 Bolt rearend, Dual Exhaust. The engine is a mild 350 SBC with a huge cam and roller tip rockers, headers, HEI distributor, Edelbrock Intake manifold and Carburator.
Since buying the car I added some 17" wheels(17x7 front, 17x9 rears) with 245-45-17 tires up front and 275-40-17 rears. I also added a set of Hotchkiss "Sport" swaybars front and rear. To the engine I added a better set of valvecovers with matching spark plug wire looms and matching air cleaner. I also straightened up a bunch of the wiring on the car and removed some of the add ons added by the previous owner.
Future plans include an overdrive transmission(200-4r) and eventually a 454.
