Well Saved: 1975 Chevrolet Monza California Edition

The Chevrolet Monza (not to be confused with the Opel Monza or the Chevy Corvair Monza)  was released in the 1975 model year as GM's plus sized subcompact (how's that for a contradiction in terms) offering on the H-platform shared with the Vega/Astra/Sunbird/Skyhawk/Starfire.  It was GM's answer to new sporty-ish compact offerings from Ford like the Mustang II, Capri and Dodge's Galant based Colt.  The Monza was actually quite a strong seller, with almost 750,000 examples of the H-body sold in the first 6 years of production but few remain on the streets today, much less in this sorta condition.  Yowza! Find this 1975 Chevrolet Monza California Edition offered for $7500 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

  1. Pretty nice shape prefer the fastback Monza but those have a lot more plastic trim pieces that just don't hold up well to the element's. Not many with 350's that smog pump belt look's ready to eat the fan shroud. Not sure it'e worth $7500 but try finding another in this shape better then that kit car 917 4 sure.

  2. I generally don't like blue cars, white vinyl roofs, white interiors with black dash ( Panda? ) , and think the fastback Monza looks better than the notch, but this just works.

    Too bad about the sloppy overspray though.
