    WTB a big block or SS Monte

    I don't think you are being picky. It's your money and your desire! When I purchased my Monte, all's I new was it had to be better equipped than my 1st 72 Monte ie; Bucket Seats, Console ect. I was pretty lucky that during that search, one came up on eBAY about 70 miles from where I live that met my criteria and I ended up with the winning bid. Since I have added additional amenities ie; Power Windows, Door Locks, Trunk Release and Cruise Control to name the most important. So basically, found one close to home for a decent price that had some of the comforts & added others along the way. The remainder was replacing Moldings, tires and lots and lots of never ending cleaning. What I have now is what I envisioned and am comfortable where I am for now anyway. When doing these upgrades, I was careful to purchase OEM New or Used to keep her in year compliance and meet my originality requirement. I guess what I am saying is, I would find a car that met the more important aspects knowing that you can include other(s) along the way. I would suggest detailing your minimum with everything over that optional. Meaning you would have a wider range to select from. If you enjoy and are skilled enough, bringing her up to your standards yourself is always an option too. If you have 25K to spend, you have a lot of nice cars out there to choose from.................... All the best and don't think it will be long..................... Doug

    1972 MC Custom Numbers?

    I figured without Excel on your PC, opening it would be difficult. I will create a picture of it so most if not all will be able to view it. ***News At Eleven**** Doug
  7. This is really a 1972 Core Support but will fit equally as well onto a 1971 Monte. This came from a 72 garage fire damaged vehicle that was not salvageable after the fire I was informed. Media Blasted mostly and was to long to reach outer ends in blaster so used wire wheels and sand paper to clean up on ends. Core Support is SOLID! No damage & negligible rust in those areas you would anticipate issues ie; around Battery Box area and bottom structure (However, pitting from corrosion but no thin areas found. Pic's say it all and have more if interested. I am entertaining prepping and POR 15 paint for my car if no interest or the Portland Swap Meet in early April. Please advise if interested and would need pick up at this point due to size and cost to ship. Doug

    1st Gen Big Block Fan Shroud - $175.00

    The Radiator is not a factory radiator upon further investigation. Someone put a 2 Core Radiator in her at some previous time. Sorry......................... Doug

    1970 monte carlo grill emblem

    You can purchase new aftermarket Badging from a few of the Parts Suppliers.. Not sure if you can get the emblem separate from the housing. Pretty sure The Parts Place offers them for starters. Doug

    Having the VIN # helps me keep from duplication. So if you don't mind, I would like to have it. Doug

    1st Gen Big Block Fan Shroud - $175.00

    I will start looking into the Core Support tomorrow and get a feel for what shape the Radiator is in. Radiator is still attached to the Core Support and this is how it was removed from the fire damaged 72 Monte. Probably has never been removed prior to the garage fire. I will see what info I can provide you. Doug
