Best of the Rest: 1975 Chevrolet Monza

The Chevrolet Monza (not to be confused with the Opel Monza or the Chevy Corvair Monza) was released for the 1975 model year as GM’s last rear-drive subcompact offering on the H-platform shared with the Vega/Astra/Sunbird/Skyhawk/Starfire.  It was GM’s answer to new sporty compact offerings from Ford like the Mustang II and featured the dreaded trifecta of crusher-magnet attributes — flimsy rust-prone thin sheet metal, anemic 4-banger power, and cracker-jack box build quality…but the examples that have survived to this day must be the best of the breed. Those cars have survived the years and in the unique twist of Darwinian fate, they are probably better than the overpriced competition from German and Japan.  Find this 1975 Chevrolet Monza offered for $2000 in Medford…ummm…where the monza is Medford? CT? OH? MD? I seriously don’t know. Gotta google it.  Hang on….yup, OR.  Was totally wrong.  Seriously craigslist needs to add a state indicator on their pages. Tip from Evan.
