Customer Cars – 1971 Monte Carlo

Customer Monte Carlos - 1971

The Monte Carlo returned for the 1971 model year and featured very subtle changes, most of which were cosmetic. The headlamp bezels were now more of a rounded square shape with rectangular parking lamps upfront. The grille had no horizontal dividers for the ’71 model year and the openings were rectangular as opposed to the squares featured on the 1970 model year. The hood spear now included a stand-up ornament with “Chevrolet” script lettering and the grill emblem featured the year, “1971” in Roman numerals. The trunk lock keyhole had the traditional Monte Carlo crest surrounding it and the taillights now had two horizontal and one vertical chrome strips. Interior changes were even more minimal for the 1971 model year. The SuperSport model got brand new “European style knobs”, and the four-spoke steering wheel became optional. AM/FM stereo radios with 8-track tape players also became optional in 1971.
