Welcome to my 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo web site. This is my
first car that I purchased on 10 June, 1979. The Monte Carlo
was purchased at Kelley Chevrolet in Greenwood, Indiana for
the price of $1,100. I am just the second owner and the car has
been through many changes over the years.
Bronze metallic and sported a 350
small block Chevy with a two-barrel
carburetor. The transmission was a
350 turbo hydromatic and had a 10
bolt rear end with a .256 gear ratio.
The braking system has drums in the
rear and disc brakes in the front for
extra stopping power. The interior has the SS package which
is the bucket seats with a shifter console between the seats.
The interior color is a buckskin tan and the dash has a walnut
grain inlay that surround the instrument panel. This is how the
car was when I bought it.
Now for the changes over the years. In 1984 when the 350
turbo transmission went out it was replaced with a 400 turbo
which came out of a 1968 Chevelle. This transmission is still
in place. The 350 small block Chevy was replaced with a 396
big block Chevy (Mark IV or generation Mark 4) that came out
of a 1969 Chevrolet Impala. The rear end was replaced in
1994 with a 10 bolt out of a 1968 Pontiac Grand Prix and the
gear ratio was increased from .308 to a .390 gear ratio. In
1998 the 396 was replaced with a 454 big block Chevy. When
I bought the 454 the owner was putting it in a 1968 Chevelle
but thats not the original motor for that car. So I do not know
the origin of the 454 big block.
