1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Overview

I think the Monte Carlo is a great car. I especially love the 305 engine and its sporty look.

Everything about the Monte Carlo seemed good in 1987. I mean...Aerocoupe. The very name of the popular 1987 Monte Carlo trim sounds fast. With its 305-ci HO V8 rated at 180 horsepower, the SS Aerocoupe surely did not disappoint. New for 1987, the Aerocoupe even featured aerodynamic composite headlamps, as well as a rear window slanted to reduce the drag coefficient from .375 to .365, a drop that has helped the Aerocoupe remain among the cars raced today, with 6,052 cars sold in 1987.

The base model for the 1987 Monte Carlo was no weakling either: the engine was a 262-ci V6 rated at 140 horsepower, while the 305-ci V8 was rated at 150 horses. 72,993 LS and SS cars were purchased in 1987 (not including the Aerocoupes).

The interior was surprisingly comfortable, with the bucket seats still available.
