Reproduction Car Parts for Your Classic Monte Carlo
The Chevy Monte Carlo, a two-door coupe, was introduced by Chevrolet, a General Motors company. It was named after the Monegasque city. The Monte Carlo was introduced as the first personal luxury car from Chevy. Introduced for the 1970 model year, the Monte Carlo was manufactured for six generations through the, with a short break from 1989-1994. The Pontiac Grand Prix was Monte Carlo’s similarly designed cousin from GM. With many of the same styling and features they had the same productions years and changes.
In 1970 to 1972, the Monte Carlo an "A-Special" frame and the Grand Prix, switched to the A-body chassis for 1973-1977. In 1978, the Monte Carlo was downsized to the G-Body and in 1988, the Monte Carlo was discontinued for the introduction of the two-door Chevrolet Lumina, which quickly took its place.
In 1995, the Monte Carlo was reintroduced and replaced the Lumina. It was converted into a front-wheel drive car on the W frame, same as the Grand Prix. The Monte Carlo became the largest Chevy coupe, again, above the Camaro. When the Lumina 4 door was discontinued, the Chevrolet Impala was introduced as the four-door version of the Monte Carlo. In 2002, the Grand Prix two-door went out of production. This made Monte Carlo the biggest coupe by any American auto company still in production.
Chevrolet discontinued the Monte Carlo after 2007 due to lack of sales. As of today, the Camaro, which was rereleased in 2010, and the Corvette are the only two-door Chevy’s that do not have a 4 door option. Monte Carlo had a long history of representing Chevrolet in stock car racing. In the 1980s, the Monte Carlo SS was released, featuring a sleek styling and as part of its revival, Monte Carlo once again represented Chevrolet in stock car racing from 1995 until it was discontinued in 2007.
