Interesting car! Sort of the muscle car breed before it died. Certainly rare. Desireable? Maybe not some much, has some strange styling. I wonder how much power it has. It probably would be a fun car to have as a daily driver, but not at that price. :bloated:

I saw this one but the plates on the car are not TX. The phone number refers to M&M Auto Broker in MO I believe.

Interesting for sure! Not my taste, but I would not argue the claim of being rare...

Are those fog lights? Or just something a PO stuck in there...

Blank paint code. Must be a special order color ! The ad doesn't say if it was repainted the original color. It would also be nice to see what under the seat covers.

Nice, but for the color and the yellow high beams.

I always liked the styling of the 72 Montegos. Cleaner/smoother than the same-year Torino. I had a GT emblem in the grille of my 72 wagon and could have added the scooped hood as well. At the time I bought the wagon (1986) there were lots of these in pick-yer part .

Wheels gotta go. Magnums I say. Maybe black out the rockers . Not sure how the hood was painted from the factory, but maybe some black out treatment there as well.

This is an interesting car, no doubt... but I don't think they will get anywhere near $12K (unless someone sees it and MUST HAVE THIS MONTEGO!). As pointed out, a 351 engine is a far cry from the rarer 428 CJ, so that makes a difference. I also wonder how much he paid the family for this car, as he is clearly trying to flip it for a quick buck.

Interesting is after going to eBay, the car seems to be held by a dealership, so I'm not sure if the CL ad is even real. the two descriptions don't match much at all. Very strange. But the owner and phone number are the same, so I guess they are.

Ebay isn't even at $6K,
