Back in the early 1970s, a Chevrolet Monte Carlo was an affordable way to get into a big 2-door personal luxury car. It might have not had the style of a Thunderbird or the sporty/upmarket(ish) badge of the Pontiac Grand Prix, but the Monte Carlo was available with a big block and understated styling with overstated gravitational pull. This thing is big. Find this 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo offered for $7500 in Enfield, CT. Tip from Cory.
The Saab 96 was a classic aero-shaped front-driver from the guys at Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget and Saab history buffs will tell you that it was technically the third major redesign of their first car, the Saab 92. The Monte Carlo version was a celebration of Saabs rally racing success and fitted a triple carburetor to the two-stroke 3-cylinder engine and was sold as the GT 850 in 63/64 and afterwards was called the Monte Carlo 850. Today’s example is fitted with a Taunus V4, but the seller includes a 2-stroke 850 (or…841?) and most of the parts needed to get this thing back to MC850 spec.

General Motors never made a G-body convertible so I was pretty excited to find a homemade version searching the interwebs. The initial excitement quickly changed to bewilderment when I noticed all the strangely chosen modifications made to the car- as if being a Monte convertible is not unique enough in and of itself. The poor […]
