Early Triple Black 1970 LS3 Big Block Monte Carlo

Just in time for summer cruising with only 60+ miles on a two year intensive frame on restoration.

1970 was the first year for the Monte Carlo, only a little over 7,000 Montes built in 1970 came with the 402 CID LS3 Turbo Jet big block 330 hp motor.

Factory options include: Power steering, power front disc rear drum brakes, tilt wheel, AM-FM Stereo, full gauge dash and very cold A/C.

The car also has a Halo vinyl top. The halo vinyl top stops short of the top of the windshield, only the early to mid 1970 Montes  had this.  It was changed midyear so the top comes all the way to the windshield. 

The motor has been completely rebuilt and some mild power upgrades have also been added.  It's also been detailed out very nicely.

Power is fed through the original Turbo Hydromatic 400 automatic transmission to a factory original 12 bolt Positraction 3.31:1 rear differential.

The body is rust free and laser straight, it was completely stripped to bare metal.  The passenger rear quarter was replaced due to a very poorly done past repair.  After weeks of massaging the body to assure it was perfectly straight, new black basecoat/clearcoat paint was applied.  It is just absolutely stunning.

The gaps are perfect all the way around and the doors open and close perfectly. 

All the stainless trim was straightened and days were spent highly polishing them to a mirror finish.  New lower rocker molding, lower body moldings and wheel opening trim were installed.  In addition new door handles, new rear bumper and all new weather strip.

New tinted windshield, door glass, back glass, drivers quarter glass, window felts and rubber seals.

The factory A/C has been completely rebuilt and blows very cold air.  New compressor, hoses, dryer, condenser and expansion valve.  The POA valve was also calibrated for use with R134.  Also under hood is a new wiper/washer motor, washer fluid bottle, battery and new inner fenders.

Five new 15x8 rally wheels, beauty rings and center caps with Goodyear tires.  Factory bumper jack properly mounted in the restored trunk.

The interior was restored with new upholstery, and cushions on the front and rear seats.  New front seat backs and trim.   New carpet and sound deadener.  New sill plates.  New door panels, rear side panels, headliner, dome lamp and sail panels. New front and rear speakers and package tray.  All the door handles, window cranks, rear view mirrors, hanger hooks, arm rest pads and lock knobs are new.  New brake pedal pad and accelerator pedal.

The dash pad was restored, the dash was removed from the car, cleaned detailed and reinstalled.  The dash has full gauges and even a working clock!

The front suspension and steering have been restored including a new drag link and shock absorbers along with a fresh alignment.  Rear shock were also installed.  All the bumper brackets were sandblasted and painted.

The grill is the original and has some flaws.

These cars have been called a bankers hot rod or a Chevelle with a tuxedo. 

She starts every time and drives perfectly.  She is very civilized and comfortable for cruising but will step up and be a brute when demanded!  This car is just a whole lot of fun!

I strongly urge you to come inspect this beauty, you will not be disappointed.  Contact me with any questions and I will respond as quickly as possible.

Chevy monitors drivers' biometrics while experiencing new Corvette Stingray

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 19:59:00 EST

We tell you about what a car is like to drive every day, remarking on throttle response, steering weight and feedback, squat, dive, brake fade and a dozen or more other factors of performance. What we can't tell you, though, is what the car does to us - how its performance impacts us, physically. That's what makes this video series from Chevrolet so darn cool.
The Bow-Tie brand rented out Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, got several (very) different individuals together, strapped a bunch of sensors to their bodies to record biometric data ranging from heart rate to respiration to brain activity, and then handed them keys to the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The results are explained in a series of videos, devoted to each driver, showing how different people react to the Corvette's performance.
If, like your author, you're a nerd for medical science, this is going to be a fascinating set of videos. If not, it's still pretty cool to see how the body of someone with racing experience, like Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi, reacts to tracking a car like the Corvette Stingray compared to the owner of legendary Detroit barbecue joint, Slows BBQ. Take a look below for all six videos from the series, or hop over to the Corvette Vimeo channel for the interactive experience, where you can see all the different metrics.

GM recalls select Chevy Cruze, Sonic and Buick Verano models over airbag issue

Wed, 14 Nov 2012 15:31:00 EST

General Motors is recalling certain 2012 Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic models due to a defect in the driver's airbag system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the airbag has a shorting bar which may contact two internal terminals. If that happens during a crash, the supplemental restraint may not deploy, increasing the risk of driver injury. The recall includes a total of 2,949 units.
GM will contact owners and replace the steering wheel airbag coil at no cost. At this point, it's unclear when the recall will begin, though owners may contact the automaker at 1-800-521-7300 for more information. You may also take a closer look at the full NHTSA notice below.

Fewer than 1 in 3 Chevy dealers earn right to initially sell C7 Corvette

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 17:31:00 EST

Looking to make the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray as efficient as possible, Chevrolet will be limiting the numbers of its dealers that can sell the all-new coupe and convertible. According to Automotive News, sales of the C7 Corvette will initially be limited to less than a third of Chevy's total dealership network when the 'Vette goes on sale this summer.
Only 900 dealers out of more than 3,000 locations nationwide will be allowed to sell the new Corvette at first, and the reason for this is so that there are no shortages at dealers that can actually get the cars sold. The article says that the 900 dealerships chosen represented 80 percent of total Corvette sales in 2012.
Some of the requirements dealers had to make to get initial allocation of Stingray sales include having sold at least four Corvettes in 2012 and having a Corvette Stingray specialist who will be required to have gone through a training session costing more than $2,000 per attendee. Once demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray begins to subside - approximately six to nine months after it goes on sale - then allocation could open up to more dealers, but the report indicates this could happen following the 2014 model year.
