1974 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Used 1974 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 14,848 miles, White
1974 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Landau. Classic White paint, original from the factory, plenty of brite work, and a white vinyl Landau top drapes this '74 ''Luxo-Mod'' (Look! Up in the sky, it's a muscle car!...no its a luxury car!..). True to form 1974 second gen Monte Carlo through and through, it sports a long long hood, and almost as long trunk deck. All badging trim work and chromed bumpers are very clean and dimple and rust free. As a matter of fact, the only flaws we can see on the exterior are some areas of paint rub off on the hood and a few very small stone chips. Otherwise, all of the metal is laser straight, even with the undulating Colonnade body lines, and the gaps are well minded to factory specs. 14'' turbine wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped in nearly new 225/70R14 whitewall rubber. Black is the color for the original interior, and this is in vinyl form on the door panels with vertical stitching, a molded plastic and padded armrest and lots of chrome for the power window, power lock, door pull, and power mirror bezels and toggles. A combination of vinyl and cloth also in black make up the seating in the form of a front split bench and rear full bench have virtually no marks or stains and certainly no rips or tears. A black vinyl padded dash covers the passenger side, and faux burl veneer fronts the dash from centerline to driver's door. All gauges, which are a tachometer and gauge package upgrade, reside within the burl and auxiliary gauges in small round pods flank the burl, all mounted in black plastic. Standard GM Monte Carlo steering wheel fronts the dash. Air conditioning, an AM/FM/8 Track stereo, a tilt wheel, power steering, cruise control, and power brakes are installed. Black carpet, showing very well, is beneath all the seating and is protected by correct GM rubber mats. A nice tight black cloth headliner is above all this luxury and originality. Taking a gaze into the engine bay one sees a numbers matching orangish-red block, 400ci V8 engine, with a factory 4-barrel carburetor on top lurking under a multitude of supple hoses and wiring. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission is on back and is numbers matching as well. All of this sends power back to an ACC stamped 10-bolt rear axle with 2.73 gears. The engine is well preserved and just a slight bit of dust and some minor corrosion can be seen throughout. Up on the lift we can see the meat of the operation from underside. The frame is sturdy, as are rockers and floor pans. Power disc brakes are on the front and power drum brakes adorn the rear wheels. Meanwhile, independent with coil springs in front, and 4 link with coil springs has the rear covered. Dual exhaust, appearing like new, is on to handle the removal of spent fossils via a pair of Xlerator mufflers.
