1978 Dodge Monaco Review
Been Everywhere With This Car And Still Wouldn't Be Afraid To Do It All Over Again — 400 Interceptor bb OE 4 BBL Thermoquad carburator 3:21 gears in the rear OE power steering and trans coolers OE trailer towing package Only 668 built I bought this car when I turned eighteen. I have put on about 125000 kms on it. It only had 78000 when I bought it. I have done some work to it, there is dual 2 1\4 inch exhaust, accel coil, I also changed the water pump, timing chain and gears, front brakes recently and there is a lot more but I don't have enough time in one day to type it all out.
Pros: Lots of get up and go anywhere from zero to 135 mph, car handles well with the right driver and loves to cruise at about 100 mph
Cons: Have you looked at fuel prices lately? With a 400 interceptor and a 4 bbl carb she loves her premium fuel.
