This 1984 Chevrolet Monte Carlo has the look and sound of a racecar, but it’s really just a great tribute that you get to enjoy from the comfort of an A/C interior.

So for those of you who really love to turn heads from the moment you leave your driveway, you know this Chevy is turn-key ready for attention.

This generation Monte Carlo built the SS to give it an advantage in NASCAR racing. And this custom coupe takes that idea to the next level. It really looks race-ready with the aerodynamic front end, hood pins, trunk pins, and big rear spoiler. There’s an impressive paint theme done as a tribute to Darrell Waltrip’s winning Monte Carlo. Even the main sponsor logos were painted on top. It’s such an authentic-looking total package that there’s a decal on the rear window to announce that this is street legal, because you just know some people will wonder how it’s allowed on the neighborhoods. In fact, the differences between this and a NASCAR racer are subtle, but they are important. The headlight covers come off to reveal DOT legal lights. The Aero racing wheels have Goodyear Eagle tires, but unlike racing slicks, these have a real useful tread. And while you can put up the window safety net for some NASCAR-style fun, there are also real roll-up glass for when you want to keep the weather out.

The doors really open on this tribute car, and so you don’t have to slip through the window. Plus, you’ll want to use them so people can get a peek at some more cool upgrades. The diamond plate style accents, roll bar, and RaceQuip belts are for show, but they really set the tone right for this racer. And this coupe also has the right functional pieces. You have upgraded features like the full auxiliary gauge package and large SunPro tach. But what you’ll also really love is how this remains a comfortable Monte Carlo at its core. That means great features, like cold-blowing air conditioing, a tilt steering column, cruise control, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 305 cubic-inch V8. These small blocks love upgrades, and so this one inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. There’s even an upgraded exhaust with side exit for some NASCAR-style sound and fun. Plus, the mild cam delivers added performance and growl to the total package. The three-speed automatic transmission even has a shift kit to keep you in the power band. Add in power steering, power brakes, front discs, a Positraction rear end, and sway bars front & rear, and you have a racecar that has an everyday kind of appeal.
