Back in 1986, Bob had plans to purchase this “almost” exact 1986 Monte Carlo SS right from the dealer floor. It featured the same color and interior, but Bob’s mind was set on getting one with the 5-speed transmission that was installed in some Camaros.
To his surprise Chevy would not accommodate this option on the Monte he had on order and thus cancelled his order. Fast forward to 2014, Bob C bought this 1986 Monte Carlo Super Sport from his nephew.
This ’86 Monte Carlo retains its original interior but, the exterior was repainted a dark red metallic. Bob however was getting the options this time around that Chevy wouldn’t allow him to get. The power plant for this 1986 Monte Carlo is from an ’89 Camaro 350 TPI producing 400HP with ported heads and a 700R GM transmission.
While this is a good starting point for Bob, he has plans to add to the car. Future plans include but are not limited to: a new rug and a gas tank w/ electric fuel pump.
