Looking box-fresh, this low mileage Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS has covered just 7156 miles
The Chevrolet Monte Carlo’s history spans some 50 years, on and off, as well as six generations. This two-door coupe was a desirable Chevy, however, by its fifth incarnation it had somewhat lost its way and become a forgettable front-wheel drive model. Its predecessor was the last great Monte Carlo.
Listed in our classifieds is one of the most pristine fourth-generation Chevrolet Monte Carlos we’ve ever seen. Finished in its original white paint with a red pinstripe, this 1988 SS example looks like new. Its purposeful boxy stance is as distinctive today as it was back in the 1980s, and those dished wheels are a perfect period feature of this performance car.

If you think the exterior looks impressive, you should take a look inside. Its burgundy cabin is a real blast from the past, with the ‘time machine’ effect made real by its immaculate condition. This well appointed space is full of plush materials, but also many sporting features such as a two-spoke steering wheel and red-trimmed instrument cluster. Luxuries such as power steering, power brakes, and a cassette player also feature.
