3rd generation for the Monte Carlo was 1978,79, and 80. 4th generation starts with 1981, and includes your car. The cars are not that much different, and both are G-body cars so it may work with some trimming, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. Take a section of your carpet out and compare it to the corresponding section in the carpet set you're looking at.

If it's only 20 bucks, take a chance. We've all wasted 20 bucks in worse ways than that.

The carpet will fit.

'78-87 Monte Carlo, Cutlass, Regal, Grand Prix, Malibu, El Camino, etc -- All of the metric chassis A and G-body cars have the SAME floor pan, even the wagons. The only difference is the outer sheetmetal/glass. Frames are also the same, with minor differences in the El Camino and Wagon in the rear.
