Re: "Project 72 Monte"

Nice! They are the sexiest of all the Montes.

There was a super nice one that someone drove to Clemson while I was there somewhere around 2002. It was a 70-72. He was either a drunk or an absolutely terrible driver. The first few months I saw it, it was absolutely rust free and a clean/straight car with what looked to be a Maaco repaint. Every couple of months it would be banged up on a new corner, to where all 4 corners had some pretty heavy damage. It looked like a demolition car after about the 2nd year I saw it. It was always parked behind the library.

Re: "Project 72 Monte"

Wow, that was quite a smack!

Did the A-pillar/Door hinge mounts move at all, or did just the cowl area get crushed?

Re: "Project 72 Monte"

It will need a small amount of pull on the cowl area but not to bad, it amazes me how tough these cars were built back in the days.

Re: "Project 72 Monte"

I'm jumping in on this for sure, I love it! My '80 Malibu was in the same condition when I first got it (took a good shot to the right front), it was even very close to the same color. It was my first car at 15 and I spent a good two years working on it to bring it back to life. I had it done to drive to school for my senior year. Looking forward to seeing the progress you and your son make on this Monte.

Re: "Project 72 Monte"

Thanks Corey, it is definitely a good project.. I pulled the upper control arm off the donor and bolted it onto the 72 so we can bolt wheels and tires on to roll it around anyways. A little more carnage to the wall of shame.

Re: "Project 72 Monte"

Also pulled off the heater box the damage to the firewall seems very minimal and should be easily repaired

They are getting harder to find good parts for I know, and a lot of the parfs are not reproduced. Looking for a good grill if anyone happens to see one, it must be a 72 grill

Re: "Project 72 Monte"

I actually have it within a 1/4" now the door edge was overlapping the quarter panel and now it is actually closing with a minimal gap. A few more tugs here and there and I believe we will have it. Going to pull the two body mount bolts out tomorrow and do a tug there and on the windshield post needs to raise about a 1/4" also. I love resurrecting the dead. And more carnage is gone ...
