Description

1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS with Aerocoupe glass installed. Ive owned this car since 1988, drove it until 1994, when I disassembled the car down to the frame, and set out to rebuild it with racing in mind. Major areas with work performed to them are as follows: The Frame was removed from the body, all components removed, gusseted, boxed, rear chrome moly crossmember added at the rear suspension brackets. It was sandblasted, epoxy primed, and painted low gloss black. It was reassembled with all new grade 8 or better bolts, new body bushings and new brake lines. Rear is a Currie 9 Ford housing with the stock Chevy brackets, painted cast gray, Moser axles, and 4:56 limited slip. Brakes are single piston GM calipers and Corvette rotors. South Side Machine control arms, and boxed stock upper arms with urethane bushings. The Front end has Hotchkis tubular arms, 79 Camaro spindles with 11 discs, stock lower arms, sandblasted, epoxy primed and painted low gloss black, Competition Engineering 80/20 shocks, dropped springs, sway bar eliminated, power steering eliminated, all new ball joints and bushings. The Engine is a 1967 427 shortblock, with machine work by McBetts, including squared, balanced and blueprinting. 10.5 TRW pistons, total seal rings, Merlin big port steel heads with porting, flash clean, and Teflon guide seals and other machine work by CMS Machine, Inc. Dart manifold, Holley 750 double pump with 850 base, MSD distributor, 6AL box, coil and wires. Cam Dynamics 581, 320 duration cam, composite valve covers, low mount alternator, Fluidamper, Hooker jet coated headers, Flowmaster 2 chamber, 3 mufflers, and 3 exhaust side exiting ahead of the rear tires. A sump was added to the stock tank, braided steel lines, and Holley blue pump and regulator. A Griffin aluminum radiator with electric fans cools it. The transmission is a Turbo 400 shorttail by Select Performance, reverse manual valve body, transbrake, and a 9 3700 stall convertor. The shifter is a Hurst Quarter Stick, chrome moly driveshaft and trans cooler by Select. The Body was media blasted, epoxy primed, and painted base/clear urethane E7 Ford Electric Currant Red Mica. A GM Parts Aerocoupe rear shelf was installed, with an Aerocoupe rear glass and lid, with all related hinges and fillers. An 88 spoiler, rear bumper, and taillights/extensions were added. New door skins, fenders and 88 mirrors were also added. The new front bumper cover had its emblem shaved and is painted monochrome. I also added a Fibremotive fiberglass cowl induction hinged hood, with a lot of labor invested to make it nice and straight. The burgundy Interior is still all in place, but new items include a rug and headliner. VDO Guages were mounted in the pod where the radio and heater controls used to be. The heater/ac box was also eliminated. A 6 point TIG welded cage is painted to match the interior, and Fiero buckets recovered to match were installed. The A pillar mounts an Electronic VDO tach with recall and shift light. The power windows still function, but the interior door handles were modified to clear the cage down bar. The rims are Welds, with 10X29X15 pinned slicks, and 4 M/T frontrunners. I completed the car in 1999, and have only put about 8 runs on the car at ATCO Raceway. It hasnt been out of the garage in the past 3 years. With a stock 750 Holley, and a 4:33 gearset, it ran a 11.70. It has a lot of tuning to go, and it will go even faster if some weight was removed, but the bumper re-bars, shocks, and brackets are still in place, as well as the interior, window motors, etc. I like the car as it is, I didnt want to diet it much more. Its also not far from being streetable, using a tighter convertor, and street/drag radials. I have photos of before I disassembled it, some of the work that went into it, most receipts, and the 1988 issued, clean title. I would welcome and prefer anyone interested to come and look at the car. Im sure I left stuff out, so please e-mail me with any questions. (click on CONTACT OWNER below) Thanks!!
