OK i know my camera skills were lacking. theres a bunch more videos on my channel of this car..most filmed by other people so u dont have to feel cheated. in my defense i was nervous in the beginning and excited at the end ..in addition to trying to film with a flip camera not really looking through its tiny little screen. if anyone can feel me on that
100% homebuilt 85 SS monte. LS1, 6 speed, OBD2 conversion. complete drivetrain, harness, fuel system, dash and other misc. parts out of a 99 SS Camaro. the Camaro only had 47k miles when it came into my possesion. rest of the car including heater, lights, wipers, cruise control and things like that all being powered from the Camaros harness/controls. none of the 1985 harness remains except the dome light circuit. t
GM A-body 12 bolt reareand with 4.11:1 gears and a true track posi fitted with the ss Camaros 12" rear disc brakes. shortened upper trailing arms and adjustable lowers with spherical rod ends to fit the older/beefier/wider rearend. still a work in progress at this point, but to me getting the referee to approve my work was a big deal and a huge step. this car passes california smog legally! go green!...well as green as you can go with a full size, v8 powered car thats built for thrashing.
Cars from the 1980s making history. SAVE OLD CARS!
We always see cars from the 40's-70's in junkyards, backyards, and sitting
in fields rotting away... Ive yet to see a video dedicated to the 80's. I
know some cars pictured here aren't classics and never will be, but one day
they will be gone too. Let me know what you think.
1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS All Street Project Car
This is my 1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS. I have owned this car for 13
years and it has been in the family for over 26 years. The car has just
under 29,000 original miles. The engine and drivetrain is all original as
well as the paint and interior. I didn't drive the car much, so I decided
to make a few subtle changes, mostly in the stance, so I would drive it
more. Just don't care for the stock stance on these cars. For the front I
used 2" drop Belltech spindles and 1" drop Belltech springs. For the rear I
used OPG 3" drop rear springs. 3" total drop front and rear. I used
Belltech Street Performance shocks on all four corners. The wheels are
Center Line Retros 18 x7 front, 18 x 8 rear. Nitto NT555 tires 225/45 in
the front, 255/45 in the rear. Also for a little more sound, I went with
Flowmaster Super 40 mufflers and custom tailpipes. I drive the car a lot
now just cause I enjoy it so much more. I didn't cut anything and I have
everything to put the car back original if I ever decide to in the future.
Thanks for looking!
