  1. Note that the squirter hoses only go through the firewall for 1970. They do not go through the firewall in 71/72 as the nozzle is mounted in a different location on the hood. Most of those other items are easily changed for not a lot of money. As far as if it is a real SS is the biggest issue for sure. Has some components that certainly suggest it could be an SS (rear bumper, SS rear trim, shock protectors, dash knob with symbol). I have not seen anything that suggests it is not an SS so it would need more investigating for me to buy it.
  2. That is now 3 first gens that have sold for over $80k at auction in less than a year.
  3. https://www.mecum.com/lots/PG0121-454577/1971-chevrolet-monte-carlo-ss/ Are people just discovering now how rare these are?

    I’ll look into adding more photos. Maybe 1970 and a 1971 full engine bay photos. Yes that’s my copper 1971 SS.

    Good question. I think it was but I don’t know for sure. If someone here can confirm that Ill update the info.

    I clarified some details regarding the build sheets and added other points to the Documentation area (body tag, protectoplate, etc). Also common for people to ask if the VIN will verify an SS so made that point stand out a little more.

    I have added more info to the SS454 page on our site. Check it out. https://www.firstgenmc.com/forums/index.php?/resources/ss454/
  9. Note that the 6 digits from the vin are not usually as deep of a stamping as the CRN code so they are harder to see. The LS5 suffix codes for Monte Carlo are "CRN" for 1970 and "CPD" for 1971.
  10. I think there’s simply a typing error when the protectoplate was created. That’s my guess.
  11. I was able to get the 71 out this afternoon. The roads were clear and dry. A little bit of highway driving and some cruising around town. It felt good. We’re supposed to get some snow on Sunday so it was now or never.
  12. I believe they close over the winter months so they can take a couple days to respond to a phone message. If you can book online using the instructions I posted that is your best bet to book quickly.
  13. 4 rooms left in the club's block at the Timbers Motel. There two other rooms available at this hotel as well but they are not eligible for the club discount. Once these 6 rooms fill up I will look into other hotel options for overflow.
  14. Unless there was another silver Monte there I wasn’t aware of that car was a 70 SS and it sold for $91k ($100,100 with buyer premium).
