About 1971 Monte Carlo
Chevrolet debuted the Monte Carlo in 1970, and it managed to outlive most of its competitors, lasting until 2007. That makes earlier models, such as the 1971 Monte Carlo, hot collectors' items for car enthusiasts. The personal luxury coupe is very similar to the 1970 model, though it did undergo a few style changes, such as a stand-up hood ornament, square lights, a four-stoke steering wheel option, and a new grille. The basic version came with a 245-horsepower 350 engine, but the car you buy or own may have a different engine since several options were available that year. An AM/FM stereo radio with an eight-track tape player was another option. Due to a labor strike that took place at the automaker that year, it ended up producing only 128,600 of the cars, and naturally, even less are available today. If you are in the market for a classic 1971 Monte Carlo, you can find one among the vast inventory on eBay. If you already have a car that you are restoring or fixing up, you can also find 1971 Monte Carlo parts ranging from brake pedals to steering wheels.
