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!

Picking up where the Pontiac Ventura model left off, the Grand Prix first appeared in the Pontiac line for 1962. It was essentially a standard Pontiac Catalina coupe with minimal outside chrome trim and a sportier interior (bucket seats and a center console. The performance-minded John De Lorean, head of Advanced Engineering at Pontiac, contributed greatly to the development of both the Grand Prix and the GTO. Early models had full access to the Pontiac performance option list, including the factory-race Super Duty 421 powertrain installed in a handful of 1962 and 1963 cars.
