1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

The Monte Carlo, a sporty and personal luxury vehicle, was based on the same platform as the re-designed 1969 Pontiac Grand Prix. It was bigger than the Chevelle with a long hood and a short deck. In the front was a grid-textured grille with large, single headlamps mounted in square-shaped housings.

The Monte Carlo was well appointed with many luxurious amenities with standard equipment including all the features found on Malibus, plus power front disc brakes, a 350 cubic-inch V8, electric clock, elm-burl dash panel inlays, and G78-15B bias-belted black sidewall tires. Most Monte Carlos came with fender skirts, but these were optional equipment.

Along with luxury, the Monte Carlo also offered a very sporty persona, especially with the SS-454 which gave the car a zero-to-60 mph in under eight seconds.

The Monte Carlo, only available as a hardtop coupe, had a base price of $3,125. In total, Chevrolet produced 145,975 examples in 1970. 3,823 were equipped with SS-454 equipment.
