Here’s one you don’t see everyday. Sure, 1973-77 Monte Cristos were sold in the hundreds of thousands, and while many succumbed to tinworm, there are still survivors out there. But this one is pretty uncommon, as this triple blue Landau was ordered with the vaunted 454 CID V8, power windows, power locks and even the power sunroof.
My friend in Spokane, Jason Bagge, AKA The Brougham Whisperer, found this honey over a year ago and got it up and running. Even found an NOS power sunroof switch and got it working. But he’s found new ’70s rolling stock to occupy him, and this one needs to go, so he’s listed it on eBay this week.
Per Jason: “Up for sale is my rare 1974 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Landau. They made about 300,000 Montes in 1974-but you are looking at a needle in the haystack so to speak. Not very many of these-with these options-were produced.”
Intrigued? Then go check it out. It’s got about six days to go, as of Wednesday morning.
