  2. Hi Carl, yeah the blinkin mirror tilts like that and looks sooooo out of place. My 71ss was the same and Liam Peoples is the same. and even the spare Pass sport mirror I have leans in the exact same way. I held in place right in front of it and it was like a double take hahaha but exact same lean.... I wish they had work harder at getting it more level Darren
  3. Riding Darren's coat-tails with this post.😀 Brought home this 44K mile 72 2 weeks ago. Custom package 350 4 bbl, 12 bolt posi A/C, Power windows, Tach dash, bench seat, AM/FM stereo Early built - 5th week November 71, so no seat belt warning light in dash, and has the larger seatbelts. Drives like new, rides smoother than my restored cars...something to be said for rubber vs. urethane bushings I guess. Thats AWESOME dave....!!!! Looks great right down to the whitewalls......! I may have to whisper this so others dont hear. but I have a
  4. The steering wheel I have in the 72 is a Factory correct Custom steering wheel but only came on cars with Non Tilt steering columns. the NK4 or SS steering wheel was used on the Custom with Tilt steering. For me I went against the grain as they say as the NK4 is an SS wheel to me and a Custom steering wheel is sooooo rare that I wanted to use it on the Custom whether it was tilt or not as it just screams custom as the car is not SS..... But thats just me and I love the wheel to as its so different. Darren
  5. Hi Dan, no it was repainted back in the early 80's and then I had a little cosmetics done around the rear vinyl trim and pass side emblem area of the vinyl top. some bubbles repaired but didnt go all the way through... Darren
  6. Hey Darren,

    Interested in adding your 72 Custom onto my Data Base.  Any chance I can have your Vin# and if Build Sheet?  I have added the info you provided in your Post but would like to have these 2 things as well.

    By the way, earlier on shortly after I started compiling this info, you gave me a heads up on a 72 Custom you knew about.  Would this be that same vehicle as I don't want to duplicate any of them, thus my r3equest for the VIN#.  I think you described that one as a Midnight Bronze, 402 TH400 car and did not have near the options of this one.

    Appreciate your reply and trust you are doing as well as can be expected.  You Take Care............


  7. Hi Denis, They were a Dealer install option and unfortuntly they are Rivitted on. I also prefer not to have them but they are there. I do have the fender skirts too but they are awefull close to hitting the Hubcap centers so they are off the car. Darren
  8. Hi Willie, good catch as I caught that too but have not changed it back yet. That side of the vinyl top had rust starting right in the bottom wing area down to the stainless. I had a local body shop remove the emblems and pull back the vinyl to repair and look see into the bubbles. Not crunchy which was good but they filled the holes for the emblems and then broke off the tabs and two sides tape the emblems back on grrrrrrrr, the wrong way. Have not yet fixed it to be correct yet so good catch.. Darren
  9. Finally getting around to adding pictures of the 72 I bought back in April... I think I may have every single option that was available that year.. Darren
  10. sent an email to John on them ....... Thanks Dave Darren
  11. Hi John, how much were you asking for them ? Thanks Darren
  12. Ert, I wish you luck with the sale of your Monte......... but hope you continue to visit here on the site.... Darren
  13. On my Factory 15x8 rally wheel with a 4" backspace I tried a 275/60/15 and it will chew thw crap out of the TA's and the white letters... now that I have 15x8's with a 5-1/4 BS they fit perfect no rub on inside near frame and nothing on Rear quarters with No trimming at all... Darren
  14. For me That is NOT a 3000 mile brake peddle rubber.. That's a speedo cable thats been undone to 40,000 miles and put back on.... Darren
  15. Hi guys, I am looking for Front only green seat belts for a 71 monte. They would be for a buckets and console car, consisting of 2 shoulder belts and receiver buckle belt ( large head buckle). And the Small head belt and small headed retractor belts for both sides. Thats it as I have the bolts and do have the retractor covers already. My monte is missing all front belts but rears are there and are Deluxe belts.... If you have standard belts I would still be interested. thanks Darren
