Monte Carlo is a large Chevrolet sedan that was manufactured and marketed from 1970 to 2007 (non-continuous production), spanning six generations. Chevrolet positioned Monte Carlo as a personal luxury car, with the latest generation classified as a full-size coupe. The first four generations of Monte Carlo (1970-1972, 1973-1977, 1978-1980 and 1981-1988) were of a rear-wheel drive coupé design and a V8 engine (a 1978 V6 engine), using bodywork. Later generations of rear-wheel drive did not incorporate the bodybuilding trend that became more prevalent in the early 1980s, when automakers reduced their vehicle lines to meet the growing demand for fuel economy after the 1973 oil crisis and the recession of the early 1980s. After discontinuing the rear-wheel drive Monte Carlo after 1988, the nameplate was revived in 1994 for the fifth generation, a front-wheel drive V6 coupe and V6 engine based on the Chevrolet Lumina sedan. The sixth and final generation of the 1999 Monte Carlo was built together with the Chevrolet Impala, which succeeded the Lumina as Chevrolet’s mid-size sedan. Monte Carlo SS was revived from 1999 to 2007, which was initially powered by 3.8 L V6 (supercharged in 2004 and 2005) and by a 5.3 L V8 for 2006 and 2007. The name of the car was based on the city of Monte Carlo, in the Principality of Monaco, specifically in the Monte Carlo / Spélugues wing.
1977 Chevrolet Monte Carlo:
A redesigned grille with smaller segments bearing the Monte Carlo “Knight’s Crest” emblem was moved to a stand-up hood ornament, and redesigned taillight lenses marked the 1977 Monte Carlo, which was the final year for the 1973 vintage design the introduction of a scaled-down 1978 Monte Carlo. The engine range was reduced to two engines in 1977. The base engine for 49 states was the 140 PS (100 kW) 305 CID 2-barrel V8 and the 170 PS (130 kW) 350 4-barrel V8 was optional (standard) in California). The 400 cubic inch V8 was dropped as an engine option. The Turbo Hydra-matic transmission was standard.
The interior was only slightly revised this year. The choice of upholstery includes fabric, suede and vinyl for both the basic and custom fairing. Swiveling seats and 8-lane were optional. This model year is the only time in history that an intermediate model was larger than a full-size model in every dimension, as the B-body Chevrolet Caprice / Impala was redesigned and downsized back in 1977. The Monte Carlo also weighed more. In 1977 a total of 224,327 S-Coupés and 186,711 Landau-Coupés were sold
