    Rear control arm bushes

    I had replaced mine several years back and can't remember if all the Bushings were identical. You might attempt a mock Order with a On Line Supplier and once have them all identified, compare P/N's and see if same. If you attempt this yourself, a Bearing Press would be the most helpful with removal and replacement. They are not that much fun................ Doug

    1971/72 Monte Carlo Front Fenders - Pick Up?

    Hi Doug, There is a Member (Vaughn) in Canada who has inquired and also wants them if, he can find a Member attending the Western Meet this year in Canada who can haul them. He is currently doing the Logistics and once I hear back from him, I can let you know where you stand. You would have next opportunity as you are the 2nd to inquire. I have $300.00 ea. into Fenders & that is what I told Vaughn and am willing to let them go for that price to Club Members only! These Fenders were an after thought when I traveled to look at a 72 Grill. I almost left without them until the Guy persisted & lowered his asking price. I didn't realize good Fenders were that hard to come by and am now glad I got them. I will advise when I have heard from Vaughn............. The other Doug

    tough post..........

    Just finished reading your Post Darren! So sorry to hear you need to sell your SS but more importantly your Health prognosis. Regardless of those Trials placed on you, you have continued to impress with your positive slant on a serious & complicated problem. I believe your Values are displayed in those projects you tackle and it shows in the work performed. In spite of your Health Issues, you have remained committed to your Core Values and that is hard to do under any circumstances these days. I am certain you are apprehensive on selling the ole girl to just anyone and whoever does end up purchasing, they will hopefully know what they have. Wished I were still working as I would seriously pursue that Nugget............. (wanna trade for 72 Custom)? Doug
  4. Some are aware I bought some 1st Gen Monte Parts a couple months or so ago in a Post I made. I went to view a 72 Grill and ended up with a few other items. I was on my way out when the seller pressed me to take another closer look and convinced me to buy them. The thing is I don't need them! I don't have ample storage for long term care and looking to see within the Club if anyone has a definite need for them? No pic's in this Thread, but look under (Cars and Parts for Sale) under (1971/72 FRONT FENDERS - GOOD SHAPE) where there are ample pic's for your viewing. I have more, but these describe the condition the best. The biggest reason I bought them was the fact these are difficult to find in this condition per conversations with Club Members and other Venus. I had originally settled on a Club Price of $850.00 for the set but have gotten somewhat more flexible with the realization for longer term storage. I prefer not to ship however! After some investigation, it appears Grey Hound is the cheapest (but not the safest way to ship)! A lot of labor required for Grey Hound to view them exposed and then wrapping them there for shipment. Grey Hound will only provide $100.00 Insurance for non OEM and OEM unwrapped parts. More coverage available for NOS Factory Wrapped Parts and don't have to unwrap NOS for Grey Hound inspection. If I am incorrect, please correct me but that is what I got from their Website and conversation. It had dawned on me that with the FGMCC Western Meet coming our way and anyone who might be interested, PM me and lets see if we can't make an exchange on your way back home or some other alternative plan. I am taking offers at this point. Obviously I have a minimum due to my investment in them and again motivated but not desperate................ There is about a 4X4 patch panel in the Heel behind the inner braces (both Fenders) and little else evident. You can get a better look by searching the Thread I provided above to view pic's. Let me know your thoughts........................... Doug

    Steering column color

    In 1972, the Monte steering column color was Black (if including NK33 Custom Grip Steering Wheel). Otherwise, the interior color determined the Column color I believe. I can't claim this was true in 1970 & 1971 Models that were not SS. Doug
  13. Hey, here is one for St. Patrick's Day! You know, for those into Green, this seems a pretty clean car.................. https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/cto/d/camano-island-1971-monte-carlo-original/6834032345.html Doug
