When Robert Rice of Tupelo MS saw this ’87 Monte Carlo SS at his chassis shop, he knew he needed another project, his fourth Monte Carlo, in addition to his ’87 Grand National….
The car was stripped out, and the body completely repaired by Rogers Rod Worx, fixing the usual rust spots in the floor boards and t-top zones. Then the real fun started. He knew he wanted a wider set of shoes in the rear than the stock frame would allow for, so the frame was altered to accommodate them. He had larger flares added to the fenders, added a 2″ cowl hood, deleted parking lights, a 2″ extended rear spoiler and a custom grille.
The wheels are 100% his own design, built by Showwheels USA…. 18″ in diameter, with 10″ width up front and 12″ in the back.
The beautiful paint is a Candy Raspberry, with the addition of the artfully executed ghost flames.
We hope to show you this car in more detail once its complete in a multi-part series down the road. So stay tuned!
