70 Monte Carlo

Hi. I have a 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo. I was wondering if I could get some info on the car. What I am most interested in is how many of the cars were made the way mine is. It has a 3 speed column shift, with manual brakes. Red with black interior bench seat. Power brakes. Standard trim package. 350 cid. Single exhaust. Non-ac. AM radio. Clock. Bought it as a 1 owner car, that came off the Show room floor in Green Bay, WI. in 1969. Whatever information i can get on the car would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Beau.

I have no info, but I am shocked that it has a standard shift, especially on the column. That is pretty rare.I have never seen that on a monte'

Sounds like you got ahold of a BASE Monte Carlo. The 350 2-bbl/3-speed column shift was standard/standard.

More- http://www.darklair.com/monte/70info.html as well as a ton of other sites on the M/C and it's Chevelle/Malibu
ElCamino/Sprint and Pontiac/Olds/Buick cousins.

Where did you guys get that it was a manual shift???

You can find a lot of information on teamchevelle for that car. Other than body it's the same as a Chevelle.

I have seen Chevelles with the column standard shift, but never an MC........Guess the original poster needs to come back and verify if its a standard or automatic

I've never heard anyone (until now?) refer to an automatic as a "3 speed column shift". From the link above, verified elsewhere:

Some odd options were: 3 speed manual column shift...
AFAIK the 3 speed manual wasn't available w/a floor shift or console. It WAS available w/bucket or bench seats.

Never seen 3 on the tree in a Monte. How about a picture. 3 speed column shift could still be an automatic. The manual brakes I can see. I think that's what didley59 is saying.

WAG- I'd bet there's not 500 total that got the 3-speed (they were all column shift- no floor shifter unless you had the 4-speed).
