On paper, the 1984 Monte Carlo SS should have been the pretty sweet ride. After all, it’s the V8-powered, rear-wheel-drive coupe. Unfortunately, the actual vehicle is underwhelming at best and definitely overshadowed by the awesome Buick GNX it shared the platform with.
North Carolina tuning shop Detroit Speed has the solution for those shortcomings, though. It created the package that it says corrects the steering geometry, as well as revamping the front and the rear suspension. And as Farah found out in his most recent One Take, a handling package completely transforms the SS.
The vehicle he drove still has a stock 305, so it’s not exactly quick, and as he says, it actually handles. Not only does their modified SS ride surprisingly well, and it also has great steering feel. Who would have guessed? Best part about this model Monte Carlo is definitely the front grill!
It sounds like the pretty awesome setup to us, especially if you go the step further and do an LS swap. Now that would be an awesome sleeper. Definitely one of the coolest cars from the mid-80’s to come out of Detroit.
