Default 1987 Monte Carlo SS

T-tops, fully loaded, everything works, no rust (we cut it all out).

Nice paint, 10 footer. Cheesy SS stickers are there, but I'd take them off and stay with the gray paint after a nice buff job.

Now for the goodies:

Very fresh L33 5.3L, with a single H1E turbo, injectors, GM LS7 cam, GMPP roller rockers, gm gaskets and seals. Dyno tuned, 547RWHP.

Turbo hot side is all stainless, with factory manifolds (truck on one side, LS4 on the driver's.) with v-bands and flex couplers. Cold side is all welded aluminum, with a Tial blow off valve set to 10psi. Everything will be coated/wrapped to keep under hood temps down.

Replace the turbo with a GT366SXE and bigger injectors and it's 700-800hp to the wheels. The T4 based plumbing with a honking charge air cooler in front of the electric SPAL fans will support 1KWhp... It has a 3 BAR map, 2015 Vette MAF in a z06 air intake, which will also support a lot more. We had the turbo and 58lb injectors.

4L80e, billet converter (revtech), billet input and output shafts, fresh build, transgo stage 2 valve body (have a manual shift kit if you want it).

GMPP Ford 9" housing, 3.50 gears, Detroit true-trac LSD, 35 spline chromo axles, Wilwood 14.4" brakes, 6 piston calipers, parking brake. Currie/Ride tech brackets, Ride tech single adjustable coil overs.

Ride Tech front A arms, coil overs and steering, Wilwood 14.4" brakes, 6 piston calipers.

Ride tech single adjustable coil overs on all four corners.

Baer re-master

Vintage Air under the dash. All factory gauges work, EFI via a GM 0411 computer and stand alone harness.

Soon to be 315's square on 18" rims

1.75" mild steel Wild Rides 6 point cage.

Should be noted that we're building this out of parts we have around the two shops, mainly to sell. All professional fab work and design.

What's it worth? We're still building it, so things can change.

Pics are worth a lot in these situations.
I can tell you from personal experience that the demand still isn't that high for these G-bodies. My buddy finally sold his modded MCSS after months of trying recently. The work he did was amazing and top notch. It had a crate 350 and many 'goodies'. The body was sweet and rust free. The negative was a cracked dash which was getting a bit too pricey to replace. All he could get was $8500. I have a feeling yours is a better build than his (still need to see the pics) but even on the high end I'm not sure what someone will pay. I sold one of the finest 'stock' ultra low mileage original '87 MCSS Aerocoupes around a few years ago for a price in the high teens. It went to a collector in PA. Some sellers ask $20k plus but those are very rare deals if they ever occur. I really like G-bodies but the prices are not moving much from what I've experienced. Best of luck with everything.
