660 Horsepower: 1975 Chevrolet Monza

The Chevrolet Monza was a small 2+2 built on Chevrolet's H-body, which was also the basis for such piles of crap like the Vega, Skylark and Starfire. It was the last of GM's rear-wheel-drive subcompacts and the end of an era for GM's rear drive crap boxes, BUT today's example has a meaty V8 under the hood.  Find this 1975 Chevrolet Monza offered for $8000 in North Branford, CT via craigslist.  From Cory.

From the seller:
Here we have a fully built and bored 350 chevy small block in a 1975 chevy monza. The car runs and drives great. Full interior. 660hp registered and insured street car. The car is not a show car but it's a fast car and will run rings around most.

It's a sumitt block 60 over 12&1/2 to 1 pistons balance and blue printed trick flow heads, 800 Holley, nice cam gear to gear drive.

The tranny is a turbo 350 built by B&M. The rear is all Richmond built it, still has the 4 lug axels. 4.11 gears. 

Has nitrous not fully installed. 

Asking $8,000 or best offer - no trades
Email / text any questions. I'm selling for house down payment. 

Sold as is.

See a more homely car to go fast?


  1. I've never seen a 1970s polyester business casual Monza.It got the same clumsy design ques of that generation.
    660HP???? must be a 260 shot of nitros.

  2. I just had this crapbox Monza laying around..................

  3. -230, .027, 17486.

    ... I like pulling numbers out of thin air as well.

  4. Still has the four lug axles. That tells me he hasn't put the go pedal down quickly very many times.
