Joshua W’s 1987 Monte Carlo SS

Built From The Ground Up

Joshua W’s 1987 Monte Carlo SS

Joshua Wilkin’s has owned this 1987 Monte Carlo Super Sport for over 16 years being purchased back in 2003.

Since Joshua purchased the car he’s performed a number of updates to bring the car into the 21st century. On the exterior, Joshua stuck to the original styling of the 1987 Monte Carlo with a few subtle adjustments.

The most noticeable change is found upfront with a 2″ cowl hood purchased from Ground Up SS396.com. Other notable changes are a set of Chrome American Racing Torq Thrust 2 wheels and upgraded rubbers.

For a powertrain Joshua went with a 355 fuel injected small block coupled to a Muncie 4-speed transmission which is producing around 450 horse power! Under the 1987 Monte Carlo Joshua installed a pro-touring suspension to get it around those corners with increased speed and performance. Joshua says

“The car is a blast to drive and never fails at putting a smile on my face.”

At the end of the day isn’t that what it’s all about? Nice car Joshua! -Team Ground Up

"“I got the cowl hood from Ground Up and a few smaller parts. Plenty of more to come though”"

-Joshua W
