1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS (Silver Bullet)

Last updated Nov 27, 2008  

Photo of a 1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS (Silver Bullet)


Bought July 2005. All factory and didn't plan on many changes. That changed real quick as it starting burning oil (valve seals were dried up). It was repainted in 1987 due to Hail and have many records and receipts for it from the original owner. About 150,000 miles and in pretty good condition. It's gonna need paint but figured I'd get everything else up to my standards first. Steering, Suspension, Engine, Interior, Wheels, Tires, and Trans all needed some sort of attention, better looks or handling or worn out. Beside the Mods already done, these r ordered and waiting for install real soon ATS Spindles with C5 Brakes, SC&C Adj UCA, Edelbrock Adj. Rear UCA, Currie LCA, LS1 Rear Disc, New Body Bushings, Elec. Cooling Fans, Higher HP SB, 5 or 6 Speed (pedals r in), Hydroboost, Rear Control Arm Braces, Bilstein Shocks, Custom Rear Shock Mounts. Trans prob this Winter.
