National Geographic : 1969 Oct
Chevrolet put it all together. Solid gentlemanly comfort without bombast. Sailplane silence. Computer-selected coil springs for a ride that glides. Yet Monte Carlo's handling leaves you feeling like anything but a fifth wheel. A taut 116" wheelbase and a track five feet wide go where pointed. Precisely. And powerfully: a 350-cubic-inch V8 is basic. (Order on up to a 454.) Standard is an instrument panel with the rare look of hand-rubbed burled elm. And Astro Ventilation. Even power disc brakes, fiberglass belted tires and higher intensity headlights. Nothing's missing. Nothing except the fat you find on fat cars at fat prices. Monte Carlo. The only car in its field. Period. Putting you first, keeps us first. A group picture of all the cars in Monte Carlo's field. On The Move.
