Found this car for sale in Atlanta's craigslist (I live south of the city)
1988 SS, column shifter, no tilt column and looks like no wiper delay...it is a $600 basket case, but I know some people are into rate parts so I thought I would post it here.

Kinda looks like an '86 to me. What was the reason for the transmission hump cuts?

Poor Monte had a rough life.

I'd gladly pay more than $50 for it laugh . That's a rough one no doubt. Non tilt columns, don't see many of those in SS's. Might of been rear ended and they just put on older tails/bumper. The cluster and horn button lend itself, or at least those parts, to being from an 88'. Only 88's had the little embossed horn on the horn cap, IIRC.

salvage loss 1-25-1996


You don't say!

This is pretty terrible.

I can't find it but some guy around me wanted a similar amount for a frame that had sunk and rusted into the earth.

To each his own Paul, it's a parts car at best!

Oh it's a parts car, scrap value alone is probably $150 or so. And that cluster is worth $150+ alone, the stuff adds up wink .

ok, but still that is another story, most of the time a car in that shape, as a whole, isn't gonna bring much money. If you don't need parts or know someone that does, parting and selling is a real pain.

If I had the money I'd buy it for the nose and possibly the gauges and sell the rest, but not now and not that far away...

If it was a little closer, I would buy it and part it out.

In 1996, a Monte Carlo SS wasn't worth much, just an old car and not worth restoring or repairing. So it sat for 21 years until the Craigslist seller got tired of seeing it in his backyard. Maybe he had plans for it and it fell through. No title limits choices for its future. An oval track dirt racer street stock or hobby stock is the best we can hope for.
