Some cars are instant collectors’ items, and if you’re smart, you make your move before everyone else catches on. This 1987 Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe is just such a car. One of only 6052 built, it was a homologation special to make the Monte Carlo competitive with sleeker, more modern shapes on the NASCAR tracks. Today, they’re incredibly rare and beautiful 2-owner car is a smart bet for future appreciation.



The biggest difference between the standard Monte Carlo SS and the Aerocoupe is obviously the sloping rear window and abbreviated deck lid. Four colors were available in 1987, including the sinister black seen here, and you probably won’t find many so well preserved. The SS offered various body modifications including a chin spoiler, and the Aerocoupe added its own deck lid wing, as well as the usual SS decals on the doors that were shared with standard Monte Carlo SS models. This car has always been a cherished collectable, so you know it wasn’t subjected to foul weather in years past and has always been stored indoors. It was repainted in 2002 and looks fantastic today, and the paint is likely better than it was in 1987 (bear in mind that paint technology has come a long way since then) and the dark trim bits haven’t been cooked by the sun. All the proper decals are still in place and aren’t peeling or faded, and the irreplaceable rear window is in excellent condition. With a dark tint on the windows, this car looks nasty.



The standard Monte Carlo SS bucket seat interior was part of the Aerocoupe package, too. Comfortable high-back buckets in tan cloth provide an upscale and subtle interior environment, a nice contrast to the extroverted exterior styling. All the luxury features like A/C, power windows and locks, a tilt steering column, and a center console were standard equipment, making this truly the top-of-the-line Chevy that year. There’s also a racy-looking steering wheel, a full complement of analog gauges including a tachometer, and red accent striping on the dash that ties it together nicely. You also get full-sized comfort with a spacious back seat, something that’s sorely lacking in, say, a Camaro of the same vintage. The trunk remains plenty accommodating, although the modified trunk opening requires some gymnastics to load bigger items, and it includes a correct space-saver spare that’s never been used.



The only engine available was Chevy’s venerable 5.0 liter L69 V8 with a 4-barrel carburetor. With great torque and a throaty V8 rumble, this is a deserving descendant of the full-sized muscle cars of the past, and perhaps because of this car’s special limited-edition status, it remains completely unmodified. From the stock air cleaner to the catalytic converter, this one is just like it was built and runs like new. It has always been properly stored, so everything in the engine bay looks fresh off the assembly line and it has plenty of grunt, as you'd expect from a traditional V8. Underneath, it shows a few signs of age on the unfinished parts, but careful care is evident everywhere you look, although there is a Flowmaster dual exhaust system to improve the soundtrack a bit. A 200R4 4-speed automatic feeding 3.73 gears was standard equipment, so the Aerocoupe is both quick on its feet and an easy cruiser on the highway. Distinctive alloy wheels wear 235/60/15 white-letter radials.



Great collectables always have three things in common: limited production, interesting history, and great performance, and this Aerocoupe definitely qualifies. Call today!
