1977 Monte Carlo Restoration Information

                                             1977 Monte Carlo


Monte Carlo’s introduction seven years ago marked the beginning of a new kind of automobile. Some people called it a “personal-size” car. Yet this referred less to size than to a state of mind, for Monte Carlo was conceived as a highly individual, very personal automobile that would appeal to a particularly discriminating buyer. 

And so it did. There was no other car quite like this one. It was luxurious, yet affordable. Beautiful, but restrained. Large enough for a family, but not cumbersome. Best of all, it was designed to be a road car, with clean, crisp reflexes. An immediate success, Monte Carlo spawned a host of imitators, all claiming to be “personal-size luxury” cars. But none has captured the imagination as Monte Carlo has, and with good reason.

Monte Carlo’s popularity is based on sound considerations. It is first and foremost a driver’s car, designed from the ground up to respond to the driver’s needs.
