How many 1972 Monte Carlos came in factory black?
I have a 1972 Monte Carlo that came from the factory painted black. My parents always told me that they didn't paint them black that year and that they had to special order it. I wanted to find out how true their statement was.
Based on this site, I don't see black....http://chevellestuff.net/1972/exterior-interior.htm. Was it really painted black from the factory or did the dealer have it painted? Something to think about.
I checked with them again and was told it came from the factory painted black. I do know that the first one they painted, was sent to the wrong dealer and was sold before the mistake was realized, so another one had to be painted black for their order. So if all this is accurate, then I'm assuming that only two were ordered from the factory black that year.
I ordered one in 1972, a Monte Carlo Custom. Black on Black with Black bench seats. Had to wait many weeks for delivery. It was a special order and cost $16.00 extra. Delivered in Chattanooga ,TN at Newton Chevrolet.
