Photo of a 1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Landau (The Fantasy)


I am the proud owner of a 1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Landau. This car has been in my family since 1978 when my grandfather purchased it used with 27K miles on the odometer. When he purchased it, it came with the stock 145-horse 350 2-barrel, TH-350 transmission, 2.73 non-posi rear and single exhaust. In 1987 he had the car repainted and a new vinyl top put on the car. The stock 15x7 Turbines were replaced with 15x7 chrome American Racing wire-basket wheels. In June, 2000, he handed over the keys to me for my high school graduation present. Currently under restoration.
