After spending a week in custom-car overload at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the city of overload, I wanted to find a nice unmolested classic for Pick of the Day. I think I found just such a car, a 1988 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS being offered by a private seller in Cambridge, Minnesota.
In the Chevy’s advertisement on ClassicCars.com, the seller notes that the car, a one-owner car at that, is a 100 percent survivor that has been driven only 751 miles since its purchase in March 1988.
The seller notes that ’88 was the last for the Monte Carlo of both a carbureted engine and rear-wheel drive.
The car is fully optioned, the seller notes, with bucket seats, floor-shift, T-tops, air, cruise, power windows and locks, tilt steering, rear defrost, factory undercoating and AM/FM/cassette audio.
The engine is a 5.0-liter V8 with a 4-barrel carb, automatic transmission and a 3.73 rear axle.
“Everything is all original except battery and oil,” the seller notes, adding that the car has been stored in a climate-controlled building and has never been driven in the rain.
The seller adds that the car is being sold not because of its age, but because of the seller’s.
The asking price is $33,000.
The car comes with all original documentation, and the advertisement includes a series of photos showing the car to be immaculate inside and out, and even underneath.
