1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Incredibly, in the middle of the oil embargo, the Chevy Monte Carlo kept growing in popularity. In 1976, 353,272 Monte Carlos were produced. Chevrolet again played with the grille and head- and taillights, but left much of the exterior the same. Two trims were available: the base S Sport Coupe and Landau Sport Coupe.

More engine options were added for this model year, including the smaller base engine, a 305-cubic-inch V8 rated at 140 horsepower. Optional engines included a 2-barrel 350-ci V8 rated at 145 horsepower, a 4-barrel 350-ci horsepower V8 rated at 160 horsepower (this was the standard engine for California), and a 400-ci V8 rated at 180 horsepower. The 454-ci V8 was dropped from the engine lineup.
