Well Saved: 1975 Chevrolet Monza California Edition

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 plus sized subcompact (how’s that for a contradiction in terms) 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 few remain on the streets today, much less in this sorta condition.  Yowza! Find this 1975 Chevrolet Monza California Edition offered for $7500 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
