I always thought the mid 70's Monza was badly under appreciated. Nice car.

About

Howdy, my name is Chilly(I`m 57 years young) and I own a 1975 Chevy Monza 2+2. Her name is Jodi, but I call her Baby(Sandi calls her "the other woman " in my life).I named named her after the 2 most important women in my life who have stuck by me no matter how bad I got, my mom Josephine (Jo) and my (3rd) wife Sandi (di). Baby is my "Reward" for straightening up my act, hench forth the "Chilly`s Reward" (Sandi picked the name) on her back panel on either side of the hatch lock cover.

Specs

Baby has a 383 stroker motor pushing 425+ HP with 395 ft. lbs. torque through a Turbo 350 (worked over by Richie) so she chirps the tires or catches tire (I`ve also heard it said) shifting into 2nd when you`re on it, a 2800 stall speed converter, to a stock 3:06 rear gears with beefed posi unit. She`s Porsche Red (also known as Guards Red)w/Pearl Rainbow Metallic Flakes in the clear coat(which never show in any photos, DARN! ), Red interior, and sets on 13" Crager SS rims (on the front), I did The 5 lug conversion on the rear, so I have S-10 rims back there, rapped with Cooper Corba Radial GT `s. I do Machine Tool Electricial contract work so I don`t have a lot of money to throw at Baby, so I do a little at a time, that`s why I haven`t put big sticky tires on the back `cause I can`t afford things to break. Besides it`s fun to punch it and smoke the tires once in awhile. It`s a work in progress, a labor of love so to speak. I`ve only owned her since May, 2005, so I`ve got time yet to keep doing my thing, a little bit at a time, God willing.

Factory Options

Power steering, power brakes (dics front, drums rear),automatic transmission, AM/FM radio.

Mods

I bought her with a 355 cu. in. motor, camel hump heads,stock exhaust, a massaged Turbo 350, but she smoked on start up so I had my mechanic look into it. I had bought reconditioned camel hump heads hoping it was just the valve guides BUT on closer inspection there was more "stuff" not right. My mechanic knew of the stroker motor, it has Edlebrok RPM alum. heads, roller cam & rockers,10:1 compression pistons(so I run on pump gas),but no intake, distributor, or starter. My mechanic had a mini tork starter, 6 AL distributor & control box, so we made some deals and he put it together with the Edelbrock aluminum intake from my old motor and I made a deal with his brother for a 850 cfm Eldelbrock carb. At this time the trans. was taken to Richie and he did his magic on it plus doing up the stall convertor. For 2008 I`m trying a Holley carb. Boy O boy that Holley sure was a Grrrrreat addition.
