    1970 Monte Carlo Parts

    Sorry, it is no longer available
  2. Gave the donor body shell a bath to get ready for body work this fall/winter. I couldn't believe how much sand came out of the rocker panels and all the floor braces and then how much mouse nest debris came out of all the structure around the roof. Looks like the only rust repairs needed are drivers side outer cowl and some of the rear window channel. No rust rot on floors, trunk, or quarter panels .

    1970 Monte Carlo Parts

    Roscoe il, just a little north of Rockford
  5. I have the following off of a 1970 Monte Carlo. Let me know if you're interested -Hood. Good shape, Straight, no rust. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AjxUW9Osg3Sfg9AVl3QSOz6J_Yc03w -A/C System. I believe it is complete except for the compressor and lines to the compressor. Its off a parts car I got without an engine so I don't know if the system worked or had issues. https://1drv.ms/f/s!AjxUW9Osg3Sfg9Aq3kgkcW2hoNn9lQ -Fuel tank. clean/rust free. I brushed the dust/dirt off the top and its looks clean and galvanized. The bottom has a layer of undercoating. It looks like its for NA9 build code with evaporative emission controls. I have the fuel/vapor seperator as well https://1drv.ms/f/s!AjxUW9Osg3Sfg9Z7j8XHUrMOe5t_uA

    Trunk Hump

    Thanks all. I had thought the only difference in body shells between the first gen years was that 70s had the different trim studs for halo vinyl top. Learned something new.

    Trunk Hump

    ​I'm planning to go look at a 72 monte tomorrow and was curios about the picture of it below. The hump in the center of trunk floor above the axle looks larger/different than the one in my 70. Is the floor pan different between 70 and 72? Or does this photo indicate the floor pan in the trunk was replaced or modified? I don't have a good photo of mine or access to it right now but here is a photo I found of another 70 monte trunk. the hump looks different/smaller I see a 70-72 replacement floor pan seems to have a hump that matches the one in the photo from the 72 but not from the 70 http://dynacorndepot.com/trunk-floor-complete-1971-72-1462g-montecarlo-70-72

    First Start in 30yrs

    Thanks All!, It was pretty surreal when it started and stayed running. It went much smoother than I anticipated; other than fixing a couple cooling leaks no issues. Now onto the daunting task of body work

    First Start in 30yrs

    Been a slow process so far but finally started the engine for the first time today, pretty great to see some work pay off. My dad purchased the car ~30years ago and it wasn't running at that time and he never got around to fixing it up. He gave it to me when i graduated college and I've been slowly working on it for about 10years now. http://youtu.be/N0cEWXefXXE

    Core Support Bushings

    Yep. The small flat washer is the one I'm having trouble with. If i use it on top of the Upper cushion it will pull though the hole. If i use it on the bottom underneath the frame it looks like the od of the washer is the same size as the hole in the frame and will pull through when i try to torque it
