1972 marked the final year of production on the first generation Monte Carlo. A classic in the making, the only changes this legendary Chevy saw during this year came in the form of metal rear trim molding, a crate grill, and the option to have Strato-bucket seats. That year, 180,819 of these beauties were produced, and most of them sold out nationwide, partially due to the car’s successful ad campaign tagline; “Chevrolet: Building a Better Way To See The USA.” The car also held the advantage of being an affordable car that was big enough to fit a 5-member family comfortably, with enough trunk space for luggage as well. To this day, the ’72 Monte Carlo’s function and design are the main reasons why they are still so popular within the Lowrider culture.
