Technical Information
1972 Monte Carlo Custom


In 1972, Chevrolet no longer offered the SS454 option package on the Monte Carlo but did offer the Custom package. Many believe it was a replacement for the SS454 package, but far from it. The Custom package was a group of convenience and appearance options, and could be ordered with any engine from the standard 350 all the way to 454. The Custom can be identified by the "Custom" emblems next to the Monte Carlo script on the sail panel. This group of options was referred to as the Z03 code on the build sheet and cost $213.45 extra. There is no way to tell how many Customs were built as it wasn't a different "model" that Chevrolet kept track of.

Build Sheet and Cowl Tag:

No identification for the 1972 Custom package is located in the VIN but the build sheet will include the Custom Z03 code. No indication of the Custom package can be found on the cowl tag of U.S. built Montes but the Z03 code does appear on the cowl tag for any Canadian built Custom Monte Carlos.
