Had the opportunity to privately purchase a 1970 from someone I met this past June at Carlisle, that was handling the estate of the original owner who was a relative. Sat for a time in a pole barn. The family evaluated it after we met and pretty much did a non frame off restoration. 350/300 Crate installed. New Springs, new shocks & new tires. Paint striped, rust around the back window found and dealt with. Repainted the original color of Gobi Beige. New vinyl top. Interior is excellent and new carpeting was installed.

Have the original owner warranty packet from the dealer with the protect o plate. Will be looking for the build sheet very soon.

She is beautiful, a true luxury cruiser. A totally different look and personality from my 72.

Drove her home yesterday and tucked her in.

Took her out for a nice cruise today and am just gobsmacked about owning two of these beautiful classics.

Wow, she is gorgeous, Robert!  Love the color combo, interior and factory wheel covers - bet she turns heads wherever she goes!  You have done very well indeed.  Nothing says "understated elegance" like a '70 Monte Carlo!  Hope to see more of her in the future.  Enjoy!

Bob,

That is a beautiful 70 Monte.   Now you have the best year of Monte.... Just Kidding, all first gen Monte's are great   I look forward to seeing her in Carlisle this coming June.  I am jealous you were able to score a second not, I am still working on trying to score my dream second one.
