Introducing me&my project 73 Monte Carlo (if I can get the pictures to load) S5032314

Hey guys, I will try and post some pics of my newest project Monte, its a rust free Arizona car that I purchased from the granddaughter of the original owner. It was purchased new at Courtesy Chevrolet in Phoenix, 350/4,paint code 60 copper, trashed white top,swivel buckets and tach/gauges. Still has the chrome dealer license plate frame from new. The car is still in AZ storage, I need to bring it back to IL.

Anyway, this is not my first 73 Monte, I have had a few. My first car was a black 73 454 Landau with red interior back in '91. I had a 73 Malibu for my first winter car while the Monte stayed dry.

A 74 SJ 455 Grand Prix was my next nice A body, fully loaded white with black top and interior, and a power roof.

I love the 73-77 A body's and hope to post pics of my project in the future.

Thanks 74MonteCarlo! I forgot to mention I drove it about 12 miles in REVERSE with plates that expired in 03 to my mothers house for storage. My buddies thought I was going to jail that 115 degree day. The grandaugther neglected to tell me about the blown trans, I made it a 4000rpm block from her house in drive, and whipped a U turn in reverse the rest of the way.

Anyone ever seen this BAD red 73? I think it is from the Austin TX area.

I like the copper/gold color...you don't see many in that color. Don't see many MC's with those wheels covers, either. Very neat.

74MonteCarlo, I thought the same thing on the color, it will be repainted the original Poly Copper code 60, same as Valencia Gold for Pontiacs.

No vinyl top, they are a love/hate relationship for me.

Limey, Thanks, I'm not far in Huntley 60142

Thanks ant7377, your 77 is a good example of how I want my 73 to look, very clean.

Got any pics of that black on black 73? My first one had Center Line Auto Drags and Protracs. Wish I had some pics.

This time it will be 17" Center Lines.

Heres a pic at the GM nationals show at Carlisle PA last summer with my wife and I next to it

No the Ebay 73 is not mine, I saved the pic for a reference for the Center Lines. I really didnt like the color combo with the green interior. If it was a black/black or silver/black car I would probably own it now.

Your 73 looks perfect with the Vette rallys!

Wish it was easy to find a 100% rust free original black/black 73 Monte.

Sounds good Limey, let me know.

I might pick up the Monte this summer, 1844 miles x2 door to door. If I get my wishes I will have a 24x30 attached garage built starting this spring to build it in.

When I first saw this Monte, I didnt think they offered a gold/copper paint in 73. When I checked the paint code 60 I bought it because I want the car to wear its original color. I need to add the p/windows&locks. I have never seen a build sheet for a Monte with so few options, I think it has five options total. 350/4,A/C, buckets, guages, full white top, built in Arlington TX, which seems rare looking at other Montes VINs.

I will always hold an originally black 73 454 Monte as the ultimate, I would take it over any Chevelle,Camaro, Nova or any other muscle car. This is my forth '73 in the last twenty years, and I have owned 50-60 cars in that time. Most all 70's and 80's GM, a few 69's and a 99 B4C Camaro police car.

Where did that copper Monte end up? Parts car?

To get no options it would have to be one of (I think 4900) Monte Sport Coupes? It would have to have no vinyl top, no A/C and a manual trans.

I had a Landau with a power roof, nice but leaked=rust.

Chris picked a good color for his Monte, you cant go wrong with the red jewel, brandywine color on a 2nd gen Monte.

Three on the tree is fun to drive IMO, he took a rare Monte and made it like the other 99.5% of them.

That red 502 '73 Monte is awesome, wish I could find more pics of it.
