1973 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Overview

The 1973 Chevrolet Monte Carlo represented the first car in the second generation of Monte Carlos, and as such featured a redesign.

The hardtop was gone, replaced with a pillared coupe. A 5-mph bumper was added to the front in order to meet the new federal standards. The interior was all-new as well, though it showed some similarities to the Corvette: The driver was surrounded by his or her instruments as if piloting a jet plane, rather than driving a car.

The base engine was a 350-ci 5.7-liter V8 rated at 145 horsepower, with the top available engine being a 454-ci 7.4-liter rated at 245 horsepower.

Notice was taken of the changes, and the '73 Monte Carlo was given Motor Trend's prestigious "Car of the Year" title.
