Monte Carlo Aero Coupe
1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Aero Coupe
1987 Monte Carlo SS Aero Coupe
Regarded as one of the most significant drivers in NASCAR history, Dale Earnhardt won a total of 76 Winston Cup races over the course of his career, including the 1998 Daytona 500. He also earned seven NASCAR Winston Cup championships, tying for the most all-time with Richard Petty. This feat, accomplished in 1994, was not equaled again for 22 years until Jimmie Johnson in 2016. His aggressive driving style earned him the nicknames "The Intimidator", "The Man in Black", and "The Count of Monte Carlo". Also, his success at the restrictor plate tracks of Daytona and Talladega earned him the nickname, "Mr. Restrictor Plate".
This once mild mannered dark maroon metallic aero coupe has morphed into a tribute to the “Intimidator” with a custom paint job, and numerous advertising vinyl stickers, racing replica tires and wheels, and a removable window net. A totally street legal car paying tribute to someone whom is considered by many as one of the greatest NASCAR drivers of all time.
From 1982 through 1987, Earnhardt's sponsor Wrangler Jeans is shown on this Monte Carlo. Yellow and Blue base coat, with various vinyl stickers adorn the exterior of the car. A black radiator screen as well as aero dark covers for the headlight indentations are seen on the front of the car. Stock tail lights, and door hardware are seen on the exterior as well. Disguised by the paint and iconic numeral 3 a removable “T” top works easily on and off. Some dry rotting of weatherstripping is seen on the top seal of the roof.
A slightly faded crushed velour covers the front buckets, rear bench, as well as door panels. Gray carpeting and front and rear stock carpeted floor mats are seen covering the cockpit floor. A gray headliner is a bit loose in back but is unmarred. The dash presents in true 1980's square style, with analog gauges, and gray vinyl mixing to create the look. Power options are abundant, and include power steering, power brakes, cruise control, remote mirrors, power door locks (although driver's door lock button needs replaced), power trunk opener, and 6-way power seat. Factory air is also installed with an AM/FM Stereo Cassette, clock and rear window de-fogger.
From the factory, a 5.0 Liter, 4-barrel carb, V8 High Output engine, connects to an automatic transmission, which puts power to the rear wheels, and a limited slip 3.73 :1 differential. Power disc brakes are seen all around. Consigner states that this car will take on and humiliate with ease the other Goodwrench cars, because of the high output engine
