BK Auto Auctions presents this awesome 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo convertible. Finished in a gorgeous triple black with chrome accents and black interior. This Monte Carlo is being sold with 32,000 original miles and a clean Missouri title.
This 1972 Monte Carlo is the car that General Motors should have built, but chose not to offer. A custom coachbuilder from North Carolina purchased a few brand-new cars off a dealer lot and proceeded to convert the coupes into convertibles. That task was made a little easier because the Monte Carlo utilized many Chevelle parts from the firewall back, and the Chevelle was offered in a convertible. The idea was to convince Chevrolet executives to offer the specially-modified cars through their dealer network, but the upcoming body style change (which would not offer a factory convertible in any A-body car) nixed any interest the company might have had. There have been others who have created first-generation Monte Carlo convertibles, and industry experts estimate that number to be perhaps 75 to 100 built.
Powered by a 350 cubic inch engine backed with a console-shifted three speed automatic transmission, this triple black beauty presents in extremely good condition. The car sits on the correct Chevrolet rally wheels. Aside from the convertible conversion the only non-original part of the car appears to be the addition of an aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette player in the dash, which remains uncut allowing a factory replacement to be installed should that be desired. The Monto Carlo has been a part of the present owner’s vehicle portfolio since October 1996 and has housed in a humidity-controlled environment under his ownership.
