My first car was a 1973 Monte Carlo. It was crusty and rusty but I had a lot of fun with it. Later on, I bought a 77 Monte Carlo with a 350 4bbl engine and A/C that could freeze you out of the car. Unfortunately that car had some rust issues I was unable to deal with at the time and it went to the crusher. I had a few of the big Oldsmobiles too. A 76 and a 77. I missed those cars. I decided I wanted another classic car and started looking around. I came across this 1974 Monte Carlo that was priced right and had a mere 31,000 mile on it. I went to look at it and knew right away that this was the car for me. This beautiful example has all original interior. Under the hood has all the components just as it left the factory including the grease pencil marks from the assembly line. The original spare is still in the trunk with the jacking instructions still on the inside of the deck lid. It has survived surprisingly well considering it spent most of its life in the city of Philadelphia.
