It was a fun car. Motor Trend in April 1974 predicted the final outcome — on September 24, 1974, Ed Cole postponed the Wankel engine ostensibly due to emissions difficulties. Basically, first was intended to get you started, and never used afterwards. The car is being offered as is, where is condition and no warranty is included. A more-potent standard 151-cubic-inch 2. Others had a freshened grille. The Monza dashboard contained round gauges in a brushed-aluminum instrument panel.
Our canary yellow subject here is a 1975. From the driver's seat, you have the impression of a modern car. The 262 V8 was again, the optional engine in the 49 states. The Opel had a range of six-cylinder engines and, later, four-cylinder engines; so did the Chevy. Spyder decal colors were determined by the body color of the Monza ordered. The Monza nameplate originated in mid-1960 for the sporty version of the Chevrolet Corvair.
So one weekend, I test drove a new automatic at a nearby beach town I used to visit regularly. But its two-barrel carburetor as well as its ports and valves have been sized down along with its displacement. I preferred the bigger Duster. The Spyder packages were available on Monza 2+2 Sport Hatchback. It features single round headlamps, instead of the dual rectangular headlamps on the 2+2. The Car is 41 years old and there is no warranties impliedor expressed and is sold as is and where is.
By contrast, the Monza carries 55. The Monza's exceptionally supple and well-controlled suspension and the fast power steering combine to make it feel smaller and more agile than the Mustang. The basic four developed 70 horsepower, but two-barrel carburetion upped the rating to 84. The Towne Coupe Cabriolet was deleted, but a half-vinyl roof and opera windows could still be ordered. I agree with all of the above. The smallest V8 ever offered by Chevrolet, it features a Rochester 2-barrel carburetor and generates 110 hp at 3600 rpm.
I guess they tried to put some strength back into the body after cutting out that big hatch in the rear. Considering its base, it seems quite reasonable that the Vega's optional 2-bbl, 4-cylinder engine should be standard equipment on the Monza. This certainly has to be one of the few in existence this nice and this original. An optional 262 cubic inch V-8 was optional in 1975 and 1976 before it was replaced with new for 1976, Chevrolet 305. Any thoughts of autocross were dropped, although I spent a lot of time comfortably rallying it. The last one needed the engine to be lifted, so it was essentially a V-7.
The hood has a nice bulge which tapers back from the almost grilleless nose. They were quite unbeatable in 1976-1977. It is also true that this was not the golden age of automobile manufacturing but we cannot write off or choose to ignore all vehicles built during this, or any, time period. As you would expect, the interior is as perfect as the exterior is. The seller of this Monza claims that it has only covered 17k miles and is like brand new. This was a fancy car, especially for a Monza, and this particular car looks like it should be in a museum, and it sort of was, in the. In the same fashion, a good bit of the Vega shows up in the Monza.
The window trim needs to be put back on front and rear window. It is also priced accordingly. The Monza interior seemed like nothing but acres of playskool plastics. The Aussie Torana hatchback similarly suffered from an overly fat and clumsy B-pillar. Can someone please enlighten us all? This hardly justifies the performance.
Take a look at all the bidding action on this one already! Engine options were a Chevrolet-designed 3. The seller mentions that the previous owner tried to touch up a few areas. Al Holbert saw the Monza's potential. I have no idea what its worth, but as the saying goes its worth whatever anyone is willing to pay for it! It was also only available with a three-speed automatic so, unsurprisingly, this example has been modified in yet another regard. A total 731,504 Monzas were produced in six model years. The Mustang is plenty nose-heavy 58. The smog pump and brackets come with the car.
