  1. Sold For $25,500 I'll assume someone got a nice ride on this from the pictures
  2. Welcome to the forum Antoine, like you I also am searching for a 1st gen big block Monte. Although i'm looking for more of a turn key ride. You will find lots of knowledge and experience on this site to assist you. You seem to have your preferences and negotiables in order so now it seems the only thing is time/availability. Members post ad's they find in this thread, also I have posted questions in the 454 thread on cars I have seen for sale asking for opinions. Good luck on your quest

  4. Thanks for the look and comments Kevin, much appreciated. I'm on the road and internet is sketchy at best (video looks like watching an old vhs tape with the tracking off) so I can't see what your saying. I was going to try and wiggle a day off BUT the "kink" in the fender has changed my mind. Dents also put me off for the price they are asking. Oh well, the search continues. I'm glad I joined the forum, have learned much and appreciate everyone schooling a prospective MC owner.
  5. I wanted to thank everyone for their comments, opinions, suggestions, and thoughts, it is greatly appreciated. I completely understand there is only so much you can observe from internet pictures and or video and that a onsite inspection is absolutely necessary. And yea its a bit pricey, but thats just the cost of doing business I guess. Just like BJ and Mecum with the buyer premium the consignment shop has to get their cut. But it looks like a nice SS with 9 of 10 of the options I wanted, wish it had P/W but thats also something that can be changed/upgraded. I just got thrown a wrench at work possibly requiring travel which would put a nashville trip for me on the back burner, still working out that issue. Gotta pay the bills ....If anything changes i'll update. Mark
  6. Thanks for your input and points Daniel, I appreciate it. Knowing the issues with the load leveler i'd have to assume it doesn't work (even if it had all the additional parts) but at least the compressor is there (laughing). Fresh paint scares me since good body and paint isn't cheap and in most cases not well done. I missed the chrome on the lower bolsters, had to refresh my mind from other MC photos. I appreciate your should be an easy fix/change comments, my mindset is most classics are gonna have things that have been modified or changed over the life of the car. It seems consignment shops are becoming the norm for sales, and I realize they have to tack their 5/10K fee's on the car as the price of doing business. But since I have to add airfare, rental car, hotel on to my final price I appreciate the communities comments on things I would have missed. Mark
  7. Ok I know its SB Sunday, and people don't like to talk down about others cars. But I figured someone might know this SS or have a keener eye than I do to pick out some issues. Thanks https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Monte-Carlo-SS-454/273683449627?hash=item3fb8ce071b:g:rlIAAOSw4S1cVmuH:rk:1:pf:0&vxp=mtr
  8. Saw the ad on CL, add'd it below since it had more pictures. Looks like you and your son put some nice hard work in it, good luck on the sale. Off topic, Felix's has one of the best Cuban sandwich's I've ever eaten, and I've lived and worked in miami. https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/cto/d/orange-1971-chevy-monte-carlo-muscle-car/6802985845.html
  9. Sorry i'm late to the party , I think you need a 5/8 inverted flare connection for the fuel pump if its a SB with original style fuel pump.
  10. Don't think this one crossed the block yesterday as scheduled, front PS tire is flat, looked like they drove it flat into the wash area as the tire was shredded. Looks like recent paint but already bubbles on the PS lower roof area. Quite a few supposedly big $$$ cars with hood, trunk gap issues and some sketchy bodywork. So important to get a good eye on cars especially since you can't test drive them https://www.mecum.com/lots/FL0119-367287/1970-chevrolet-monte-carlo/
  11. Well glad I wasn't loosing my wits on the price. I know last year before traveling to Mecum Hagerty had 70 SS 454's in condition 1 at 50K. I know many don't like to criticize peoples rides which I understand, but since i'm in the market I like to get others opinions. Fortunately or unfortunately depending on which side of the coin your on there are no first gen's at Mecum this year. It seems, at least to me many "classic" rides are going directly to the consignment shops. Not good for me considering paying maybe 10K above owners asking $$ for the service not including traveling and such. Oh well maybe thats the new age of selling cars.
  12. looks to be nice, but I have a hard time with the asking $ 49.5K Maybe i'm outta the loop on Monte prices. http://www.pmautos.com/auto/?auto=1970-chevrolet-monte-carlo-
  13. I too thought it looked real good in the pictures and the description, if it wasn't in MN and it wasn't the holidays I'd be tempted to scope it out. Oh well ......
  14. Just passing this along https://classiccarvalues.org/?a=1&SearchText=monte+carlo&VID=52439844
  15. Somewhere I read CL gives you 20something photo's for free, don't know why people aren't more descriptive. https://baltimore.craigslist.org/cto/d/1970-monte-carlo/6774714475.html
  16. Ok, getting sketchy now, original auction was closed due to (error in listing) and new listing has the word "clone" removed and a reserve price set. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-Chevrolet-Monte-Carlo-MONTE-CARLO-SS/264090622808?hash=item3d7d071b58:g:IJoAAOSwg05cEsTa:rk:3:pf:0&vxp=mtr
  17. More pictures posted and a video. As others have stated, too much going on with this car except the shiny paint job. My first concern was it was a no reserve auction and the pictures appear to be from an auction lot....
  18. I'll hold off on questions until he gets home and posts more info and pictures. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-Chevrolet-Monte-Carlo-MONTE-CARLO-SS/264076940495?hash=item3d7c3654cf:g:iIQAAOSw~D5cCeMi:rk:2:pf:0&vxp=mtr
  19. Not my taste but someone might dig it https://cnj.craigslist.org/cto/d/monte-carlo/6761859505.html
  20. The seller definitely has a way with words lol https://columbia.craigslist.org/cto/d/1970-monte-carlo/6755641510.html
  21. How loud are those side pipes ? Not particularly a fan but its definitely different. I was scheduled to be at SEMA so was gonna try and swing by and check it out but plans got changed so no dice for me
  22. I didn't know there was one until a neighbor just paid 900 for a pair for his chevelle. He is meticulous in period correct numbers matching stuff. I know the new ones run about 2 bills a pop at the big warehouse speed shops.
  23. It does look clean, can't say anything about price as consignment shop has to get their cut. Don't know what that is but puts the car (as pictured) in a reasonable range IMO. I might have to request an undercarriage picture just for those side pipes/exhaust. I wonder if those are new cragars or period wheels, anyone seen what old cragars are getting sold for, insane.
  24. I'm not a big fan of the side pipes tho https://vmp.ebay.com/ebay/viewAllPhotos.aspx?smid=17480780
