Welcome Dave!

That is a unique ride you have there. I'm not aware of anyone else on the MCF having a Monte Carlo convertible of in any year. To be honest, I didn't even know they existed. We can't wait to see some pics

Welcome Dave!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had no idea they did either and after some research online they must have because there are a bunch of them out there. Lots of photo's of that body style on Google.
One comment that I saw was that it was a GM conversion that was offered.
Maybe like a Shelby was to Ford Mustangs?

In 1985 I owned a Monte Carlo not an SS it had about 3K on it when the dealer sold it to me. I think it had the 305 in it too and it wouldn't get away from anything. but it was a fairly good car, I used it for a Salesmen's car and the trunk held a lot of sample tools an all.
