38 Special .. any information would be nice.. what colours were available with in these years or was there a colour specific year .. Same goes with engines.. some came with a 454,350 but what years? or was it thru out the 70-72 phase. Any information would be nice. I was also told that this was the longest hood in production for that year .. True?

I owned a 72 Monte. It had a 350, 350th tranny, was silver in color, with a gray interior. Not too sure if they came with 454's or not as can't remember when the 454 came out. I know there was plenty of room in the engine compartment for a tank motor! lol

The SS had the 454. I don't know if the SS had the 350 though. Nice car. They can be picked up relatively cheap but would need work. I think they are one of thee best looking Monte's.

I have a 72, love it. Check out <a href="http://www.firstgenerationmontecarlo.com" target="_blank">http://www.firstgenerationmontecarlo.com</a>

Everything you want to know, go to forums.

I don't think there were SS's with 350's
