Chevrolet Monte Carlo 454 (1970)


Chevrolet Monte Carlo 454 (1970)

The Monte Carlo was supposed to be luxurious more than sporty, and it was built on the Chevelle platform but used a slightly longer wheelbase. It had extra rubber mounts fitted between the body and chassis to reduce vibration from the street, plus extra sound-deadening inside. The option RPO Z20 made you the SS454 model, and that incorporated the largest big-block Chevy had on offer, the infamous 'Rat'. The long stroke of the LS-5 motor produced the torque, giving the car endless power through the rev range. The following year's version of the same engine, coded LS-6, produced even more power with 450bhp (335kW). Underneath the car ran with the Chevelle's wishbone front and coil-sprung rear suspension, with an Automatic Level Control system and on-board air compressor to control ride height. Inside it featured soft vinyl bucket seats and a simulated walnut burr dash.
