The Chevrolet Monza is a subcompact, four-passenger automobile produced by
the Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 1975--1980 model years.
The Monza is based on the Chevrolet Vega, sharing its wheelbase, width and
140 CID (2300 cc) inline-4 engine. The 1975 Monza 2+2 was designed to
accommodate the GM-Wankel rotary engine, but due to mediocre fuel economy
and emissions compliance issues the engine was cancelled, and a
fuel-efficient 4.3 liter V8 engine option was substituted.
The Monza 2+2 and Monza Towne Coupe competed with the Ford Mustang II and other sporty coupes.
H-body variants Buick Skyhawk and Oldsmobile Starfire were produced
using the Monza 2+2 body with grill and trim variations and Buick's 3.8
liter V6 engine. The Pontiac Sunbird variant was introduced the following
model year, eventually offered in both Monza body styles. The Monza
nameplate originated in mid-1960 for the sporty version of the Chevrolet
The 1975 Monza 2+2 wore its newly approved rectangular headlights and a
slot-style grille in a slanted nose made of resilient urethane. The side
window louvers are functional, part of the flow-through ventilation system.
The Monza 2+2's two-door hatchback body style was shared with the
Oldsmobile Starfire and Buick Skyhawk. The standard Monza engine was the
Vega aluminum-block 140 CID (2.3 liter) inline-4 engine with a single
barrel carburetor generating 78 horsepower (58 kW) at 4200
rpm. Optional was the 2-barrel carburetor version that generates 87 horsepower (65 kW) at 4400
rpm. Chevrolet's new 4.3 liter (262 cid) V-8 engine was optional. The
smallest V8 ever offered by Chevrolet, it features a Rochester 2-barrel
carburetor and generates 110 horsepower (82 kW) at 3600
rpm. For 1975 only, Monzas sold in California and high altitude areas met
the stricter emissions requirnment by substituting a version of the 5.7
liter (350 cid) V-8 engine with a 2-barrel carburetor tuned to just 125 hp
(93 kW). The Monza 2+2 and its Buick and Oldsmobile variants feature GM's
first use of a torque arm rear suspension, also adopted for the 1975
Cosworth Vega introduced mid-1975, and later, all 1976-77 Vegas and Pontiac
Astres. The basic design was also incorporated into GM's third and
fourth generation F-bodies, Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird
In April 1975, the Monza Towne Coupe was introduced - a notchback
body-style with a conventional trunk featuring different sheetmetal than
the 2+2 hatchback, although sharing its windshield, front fenders, and
doors. It features single round headlamps, instead of the dual
rectangular headlamps on the 2+2. The Towne Coupe was offered in response
to the sales success of the Ford Mustang II notchback coupe and its
luxury version, the Mustang
II Ghia. The Towne Coupe is 1.5 inches (38 mm) shorter and 135 pounds (61
kg) lighter than the 2+2 and has slightly more rear head room. A lower
priced "S" version of the 2+2 Hatchback was introduced mid-year. It
featured as standard the Vega 1-barrel engine with a 3-speed manual
transmission. The sport suspension, full console, sport steering wheel,
day/night and wheel opening moldings were deleted on the "S". The Chevrolet
Monza 2+2 won Motor Trend magazine's "Car of the Year" award for 1975.
