Hello All,

 

The name is John and I have been at the pound lately looking for an old faithful rescue to take home and clean up... a new best friend... a second chance kinda thing... you know... why get a new one when I could rescue an old one... So, while at the pound, I kept coming back across this one with sweet eyes and a long snoot.  I had to get it.  Black as could be, triple black I think they called it

 

Now its gonna take some time for her to get cleaned up... and I'm not quite sure how best to go about it yet.  It seems a while back she was bred for fighting, and a fighter she is... so says the sheet of paper in the center console that says 12.04 @ 112 MPH.  

 

A 1971 Monte Carlo SS454 sitting on a rack in a stable in Orange county.  She has a 454 (not numbers), TH400 tranny, low mileage, high horsepower, and track modified.  The interior is compete, some cancer at the fenders, and in need of paint and TLC.  

 

So why get a new one when I could rescue this baby.  Glad to find this website and I shall be documenting the path chosen for this baby...  Decision one to make... to T56 or Not to T56...  (The center console is soooo sweeeet with that horseshoe shifter)

Welcome John, Of course I have to say that is a great find and the best of the 3 years..... lol    .so we know this is one of 1919 made that year......... Can we narrow it down more ? Does your vin number have all numbers in it or does it have a Letter in the middle ?

if its all numbers with no letters then it now becomes not only one of 1919 built but becomes possibly one of 147 built in Canada and even more so there were only 6 triple black 71 ss cars built in canada that year..

going to watch this posting...
