    WTB: 1st Gen Monte Diecast

    I have two for each of my cars. One that rides (permanently) on the package tray and one I sit on the breather at car shows. The pictures below show the silver one but I have the same thing for the red one but it has already been put away for the season. I have the cars for the gold one (which is still in the body shop) but like Dennis, I will need to get them painted...they did not make a gold model as far as I know. One cool point, the silver models have what look like Crager wheels and my silver car also has Cragers The red models have chrome rallys and my red car has rallys as well.

    WTB 1970 Monte SS

    I am pretty sure that is a repost of a car I bought more than a year ago. I have the same picture from when I bought it.

    Which One and Why

    My first choice would be a highly optioned 1970 402 in Cortez silver with an automatic and bucket seats. I had this car when I was in high school and have many great memories in and with the car. My second choice would be the 1970 SS454. I have several (3) of these cars now in various colors all with black vinyl tops and bucket seat interiors and I love owning and driving them all. My third choice would be a 1971 402 4 speed just because of the rarity. While I like all of the first gen Montes the 1970 is my favorite. I love the grill and parking lights of the 70 far better than the 71 or 72.

    Monte Carlo Key chains ?

    I am interested...would be really cool to get them painted to match our cars. That would make easy to know which keys go with which car.
  5. Oops sorry about thaat
  6. Here's a link to one on eBay...really good price I think too. https://www.ebay.com/itm/192672665105

    Control arms

    Anyone have a full set (upper and lower) of factory rear control arms from an SS (boxed lowers) they want to sell?

    Replacement VIN tag

    Thanks for all of the input guys. Can some one share a link for someone who can make the tag and for those special rivets? I want to be sure I can get a new tag made and the proper rivets to attach it before I pull the trigger on this project.

    Replacement VIN tag

    What are the "proper rivets"?

    Replacement VIN tag

    So I have a opportunity to buy a 1971 SS454 project car. The car is all there and there is one decent build sheet for the car proving it is an SS with power windows and locks. Problem is that several years ago there was a leak in the windshield that caused the VIN to rust to the point of being unreadable. This happened while the car was in California and a the car was taken to the CA highway patrol (or wherever it is one get these things done) and had a replacement VIN tag placed on the door jamb. It has all the parts that would make one believe it is a real SS but I am just not sure if the replacement VIN tag doesn't just pretty much kill the value. What are your thoughts?
  12. WOW! I love this new look...much more modern looking

    70 454 in Cali

    Seems there are a lot of things not quite right with this car. As Rob mentioned window sticker and build sheet call out the light monitor system but it is clearly not there on either of the front fenders or the rear package tray. The window sticker calls out front and rear bumper guards neither is on the car nor are the holes where they were removed so the bumpers have been replaced. The area below the doors should be painted black so whenever the car was repainted it was not done correctly. The vinyl top trim does not have the proper paint on the edge closest to the top. The air cleaner is a small horn meaning it is from a small block and not original. Looking closely at picture #6 showing the fender SS454 emblem, it looks like there has been body work done to both the lower fender and the door. Given the possible body filler work on the lower fender/door, I would want to see more pictures of the underside and the trunk to verify the "rust free" claim. Bottom line, I agree with Aaron...this is a nicely optioned driver quality car. Steve

    Correct bolts

    Perfect! thanks

    Correct bolts

    So I am currently having the 454 for one of my SSs rebuilt and am trying to figure out what are the correct bolts for mounting the Quadrajet to the intake. Every source I have found says the front uses two long bolts. However, for the back some say it should be two short studs with nuts and lock washers while others say it should be short bolts. Does anyone know for sure? Also does anyone know where I can get the proper bolts and/or studs.
