Neoclassics, anyone?

My poppa had a 74 Monte Carlo so the source material holds a funny place in our family collective memory (not necessarily a fondly-appreciated thing to all).

 

This isn't the worst conversion I have seen. It is let down by the vinyl roof treatment, rear fender trim and dull finish.

 

I agree with the barn-finds poster that said it should have used a more-subtle Lincoln grill. The bumpers should be thinner too. I wonder if going more Avanti with the front would have been a cooler custom (though not neo-classical I suppose).

 

While I would rather not have this car, it could be fun.

Agreed, the Monte Carlo lent itself to the Neoclassic style pretty easily.  The Lincoln grille would be too obvious on a car that sized, it's fine to have a Lincoln grille on a Clinet Roadster, as you wouldn't spot it on such a not-personal luxury coupe body right away.

My Aunt had a rootbeer brown '77, had a tan interior and a tan landau top if memory serves me correctly. I always kind of liked the mid 70s Monte. Can't say I'm too fond of the custom, but to each their own.

I kinda like it.
