Strangely V8 Powered: 1975 Chevrolet Monza Town Coupe

The Chevrolet Monza (not to be confused with the Opel Monza or the Chevy Corvair Monza)  was released in the 1975 model year as GM’s biggest subcompact offering on the H-platform shared with the Vega/Astra/Sunbird/Skyhawk/Starfire.  It was GM’s answer to new sporty-ish compact offerings from Ford like the Mustang II, Capri and Dodge’s Galant based Colt.  The Monza was actually quite a strong seller, with almost 750,000 examples of the H-body sold in the first 6 years of production, but GM axed entire line in 1980 and replaced it with the wretched J-Body front-drive Cavalier…uggg…those were dark times.  Find this 1975 Chevrolet Monza Town Coupe offered for $4,500 in Concord, CA via craigslist.
