1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 454 $79,900.00?


Recommended Posts

Anyone seen this Ad for a 71 SS?  Other than the Price :B, did anyone notice the A/C center vent in Dash has the manual shut off, but the Side Dash Vents don't!  Did they mix and match or is this not original?  I know 1970 had them and at least some 71's.  Just curious  .....................

My 71 SS with AC has all three shut offs on vents. My 72 and old 71 SS with AC had them also. My non-AC 70 Monte does not have these shut offs. I have a feeling non-AC cars did not have them since the vents are opened and closed with a pull knob on the kick panels. The car pictured likely replaced the left and right vents.

I always figured they were either installed with all 3 or none.  I had none in my 72, but when I had the Dash off, I went ahead and installed them with shut offs.  A little added chrome and made it appear a little busier in the Cabin.  I liked that................... :)

The side vents in my 70SS came out of an original 70 chevelle LS6 (I bought dash and leftover parts from the resto). The vents had no levers either but it was a NO Air car. The AC cars in 70 I've seen all had levers. I vet some Early 71s also got the last ones.

As for as the 75k 71 ss that is a lot of $ for any classic car. To put in perspective how much $ that is my 57 belair hardtop, and 59 flat top even with counting what I've spent on them is around $60k! You can throw in my 68 Vista cruiser and you have the 75k.

Why only one Sport Mirror? Not even a passenger side mirror? Mine has The remote sport mirror one driver side and a Chrome mirror on passenger side. Is my passenger mirror not original?

Three of the first gens Ive owned only had a driver’s side mirror including a 71 SS454 with a sport mirror.
