    General

    Up for sale is this 1972 Monte Carlo, finished in Midnight Bronze with a black vinyl roof over a black interior, powered by the 454 cubic inch LS5 V8 running through a 3-speed automatic transmission, with 36,566 miles on the clock.

    This is an exceptionally clean and well-optioned example of the popular Monte Carlo line, specified with the best performance trim available, with a thoroughly documented and verified history. Ordered originally by Don Sherwood of Sherwood Chevrolet, he worked closely with employees at the Baltimore assembly plant, getting inside information to help with ordering the car to get a rare top specification. This was necessary because technically, Chevrolet had stopped offering the "SS" option for the Monte Carlo, but with that insider help, the options he chose made this a carbon copy of that option, mechanically speaking. With a verified build date of 9/29/71, this is one of the earliest “W” code Monte Carlos known to exist, with more detail available in the pictures that break down how the car was built and verified.

    The story behind this example is comprehensive, and make this handsome coupe very desirable, both historically and also as an enjoyable Chevy factory muscle car.

    Exterior

    The exterior of this Monte Carlo is in excellent condition, with a mostly original finish of the Midnight Bronze color. In October of 2010, with the mileage at 32,787, the rear quarter panels and trunk were stripped down to metal and refinished, with excellent color match - otherwise all paint is original.

    Mechanical

    The 454 LS5 V8 installed in this Monte Carlo was a rare option, and is a numbers matching motor for this car. The engine was pulled from the Monte Carlo and refreshed in February 2010, and has been driven approximately 4,000 miles since that work was performed. The installed air cleaner is a 1970-era 454 LS6 air cleaner, though the original air cleaner will be included in the sale.

    The engine bay is clean and sports clean brake booster, hoses, and wiring as evidence of a through job of reconditioning. The factory installed optional A/C compressor is visible and functioning, though it is noted that it is blowing warm air and will need to be serviced to function properly.

    Underneath,, the chassis is clean and suffers from no issues, with some mild surface corrosion visible on the frame, but needing nothing addressed.
