This Chevrolet Monte Carlo was purchased by Paul Demko of Hubbard, Ohio on March 8th of 1971 from Stiver Motors, Inc. The car was delivered with a high-performance 402 cubic-inch engine, a four-speed transmission, and power steering. These additional options set the total price of the vehicle to $4,418.

The car remained with Mr. Demko for the following three decades. During that time, a very detailed account of the cars servicing, trips, and even gas station visits were logged. The last entry made by Mr. Demko was dated April 19, 1991 and at the time, the car had just over 157,000 miles.

The car was acquired by a father and son after Mr. Demko passed away. They gave the car a concours quality restoration with every detail remaining correct, even the factory paint color.

In 2009, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company Pebble Beach Auction where it was estimated to sell for $100,000 - $150,000. The lot was sold for the sum of $60,500, including buyer's premium.
