they don't re-produce rear wheel houses for montes

I think Leo (KLASSIK1) uses one for a 66-67 chevelle, it's the closest match, some custom fabrication is needed too

I got a 70 outer wheelhouse from Leo, it wasnt a bad fit. Minor mods were needed though. He said the 70 fit the best from what I remember. Its not an exact fit, and there arent any being made specifically for our cars as of yet.
By the way.....Welcome!!!

Hi,
The 1969 chevelle outer wheelwell is the closest match for the wheel lip of the Monte Carlo,I know it does'nt look like it but it is. Just have to hammer down lip and add a short piece(length of lip) about 3/8" wide, along lip to match up. the inside of well(attaches to inner well) will line up perfect to yours.I had to do this to my Monte and it was the best thing since it was rusted out at the wheel lip.I'm no bodyman by any means, but this worked out for us on my Monte.We also installed rear quarters with this fix.Goodmark has these wheelwells (1969) Chevelle.Hope this helps you out!!
