    Hi Dennis, I made it back to TN. Has anyone tried to find a company that could reproduce these diaphragms Joe
  2. I intend to have body completely sand blasted. I will be removing all seam sealers plus all lead if there is any before having body sand blasted. Lead was still used in the 60s and 70s I want to make sure I use all the correct material that was used on this Monte. Thank you
  3. Hi Jared, Thank you. I wanted to verify what was used in the seams. I want to restore this Monte as close to how it came from the factory as possible.

    He had only a few minutes to talk and I did not talk to him about the 71 except he asked how I liked it. I was impressed with the collection becaused he kept most in the original condition. The old trucks were good also. My son and I really enjoyed the museum.

    Hey Dennis, I was surprised that you knew my son, but he does get around with habitat. I met with owner Rick of Muscle Car Museum we discussed him owning the Monte 454 SS that I now own. Rick filled me in on more details, such as he sold as soon as he received a dealer Greg Howard which is the person who sold to Deems my sons father-inlaw. The reason no one knew about was it has been hidden away since 1998 plus he did not belong to any car clubs when he did drive it. 21 years in a garage that was always closed and only the family knew it existed. I will be covering it for the trip back to TN so I do not have to answer do you want to sell. I look forward to meeting you again and to take it to club shows. Thank you Joe

    Hi Rick, I am going to document every step not only written but many pictures so that future club members will have some history. This is very original monte. I met with Dennis Bengtson this past saturday to discuss his monte 454 ss. He was very helpful regarding items I needed answers too such as inner front fender wheel wells. Thanks Rick

    Thank you, I have been reading a lot of info on this club which has pointed out how to verify and locate needed information. Deems the previous owner located the build sheet which confirmed this is a true SS 454.

    Greetings all, I grew up with being around cars because my dad owned a autobody repair and towing service shop. I graduated HS in 69 got married and joined the Marines retired in 1998 as a Master Gunnery Sgt. Aug 2019 was our 50th. Bought this 70 Monte 454 SS from my sons inlaws after father passed. I was going to help him restore, his son gave up on it. Monte is all original numbers matching only rust was at rear window lower left corner. Has been in storage since 1998. I am the 4th owner to title it, there were 2 others which were dealers. I met with 2nd owner which had a new dual exhaust system installed. I am going to start a frame off restoration this summer. I will take pictures and post as I go for all to see.
