This car has been driven this car about 200 miles recently. During that time that car was totally reliable, has absolutely no issues, and was a true pleasure to drive.

This Monte Carlo is finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color combinations of Placer Gold (53) over Saddle Vinyl (735) with bucket seats and a Light Covert (T) vinyl roof. This is the factory original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag pictured in this ad as well as a copy of the factory build sheet, which is also still with the car and pictured. The original owner's manual, emission control systems booklet, and wheel trim ring instruction sheet are still with the car. The very low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad, that states the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, numbers, video, and information below to get a true sense of clean, nice, and original this Chevrolet Monte Carlo really is.

Besides the correct trim codes this Monte Carlo is "Numbers Matching,” meaning the engine in the car is correct original unit that was installed new at the factory. Virtually every part we checked on the car is correct with the proper part numbers and appropriate date codes. We have run the numbers on literally hundreds of Chevrolets over the years and there are very few that are so correct and original. Even very detailed parts like the carburetor, exhaust manifolds, and even all the window glass are all correct and original. The last six digits of the VIN are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured in this ad, and the engine is original to the car. The transmission is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured.

As a side note, this Monte Carlo is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Chevrolet, just give us a call.


The Placer Gold (53) exterior is in spectacular condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has an excellent gloss, deep shine, and smooth glass-like finish. Both doors open and shut well and feel great when you close them. The chrome and other bright-work on the car looks fantastic with a bright finish and no pitting. The 8 inch chrome rally wheels are in excellent condition with a brilliant finish and no curb rash on the beauty rings. The BF Goodrich Radial TA white letter tires have about 95% tread left. As one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car it is exceptionally clean underneath. The car looks almost as good on the bottom as it does on top. We have included specific photos of the lower quarters, rockers, spring perches, and other areas most prone to rust to show how clean this car is.

The Monte Carlo looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Window Date Codes

Please note that ALL of the glass on this Monte Carlo is date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of the third week of January 1972 (01C). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.


The Saddle Vinyl (735) interior of the Monte Carlo is in utterly splendid condition. The front bucket seats and rear bench seat look just in person as they do in the photos with no split seams, tears, or excessive wear. The seat is not worn in the typical area on the bolster where the driver gets in and out. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the gauge lenses are crystal clear. The carpet is also in great condition with no stains, rips, or holes. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The door panels are in great condition with no cracks or splits and the door pulls are solid and in tact. This car features a modern radio that was made specifically for a 1972 Monte Carlo with a vintage look. Most importantly, the dash has never been cut of modified for the installation. The original radio is also still with the car and included in the sale. The dash looks great with no splits, sun fading, or cracks. The original package tray looks great with no warping, fading, or sun damage. This is one of the best interiors we have ever seen in person in a Monte Carlo and is a true study of how these cars looked from the factory.

The trunk is very clean, nicely detailed, and looks like it just come off the assembly line with the spare tire and rim, jack, jack handle, and jack cover. The original decal with the wheel changing instructions is still on the inside of the trunk lid.

Chevrolet interiors from this era are not known to wear well over the years and the spectacular condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care this car has received throughout its life and another great verification of the very low original mileage.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


This Monte Carlo is in excellent mechanical condition and it is ready to be enjoyed. As stated above, It has been driven about 200 miles recently with absolutely no problems and it performed great. The car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles smooth. This Monte Carlo is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no strange noises or vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power band. The car runs cool and does not overheat. This Monte Carlo has plenty of power. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean, highly detailed, and correct as one can see in the photos.

Some maintenance was just preformed on the car including new spark plugs, ignition wires, distributor cap, and rotor. The carburetor was adjusted and tuned. The car just received a new a/c compressor, a/c relay, horn relay, and new coil over shocks front and rear.

Everything on this car works properly and it is ready to be driven and enjoyed. The horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, wipers, the blower for the heater and a/c on all speeds, and even very detailed items such as the key buzzer and glove box light. The a/c also works and blows cold as it was just serviced. One can see the a/c compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the video. All of the gauges work and the clock runs sporadically. The car has very healthy exhaust note as one can hear in the video. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.

This Monte Carlo runs and drives as well as it looks.

Overall, this 1972 Monte Carlo is in amazing condition. This car is particularly rare and extra desirable with the original numbers matching driveline, low original mileage, and the beautiful Placer Gold color scheme.

The excellent condition, the documentation, the very low original mileage, the desirable options, and the originality make this Monte Carlo especially important and difficult to duplicate. This Monte Carlo always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is very apparent that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners.

As stated above, numbers matching is extremely important in Chevrolet pricing and will become even more important as time passes and this car becomes older and even more rare. This information is very valuable and important for pricing. Any perspective buyer, for any of our vehicles or from other sellers, should ask for all the numbers and information before he or she makes a purchase.
