Agoura Hills, California
1968 Chevrolet Malibu Sports Coupe
1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Head to Head
Special ordered in late 1967 from Rancho Chevrolet, formerly of Reseda California by my Mom-in-Law, Sadie. Sadie wanted certain options and Rancho was the only dealer in the area that would order the car the way she wanted. Over the years I maintained and cared for the Chevy and she gave it to me when she could no longer drive. Sadie passed away several years ago, but her wonderful spirit lives on today in all of us that loved her and her precious Chevy.
About “COOL RUNNING”
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!
