You need to consider what the intended use is, is it worth dumping the creature comforts if it is a daily driver?

Power windows, locks, seats, sound deadener, insulation, cast iron heads, manifolds (intake and exhaust), go to lighter wheels. Depending on the year of Monte, the 73 and newer have a lot of extra weight in the bumper assembly's, some of the 80 Monte's came with aluminum hoods and deck lids, they will work on the 78 to 80 cars.
