Ahhh, interesting. Thanks for that, TK. Based on that info I was able to find a few more pics of it. Actually the 1st pic looks to be a vintage pic, so it's highly unlikely it's the same car.
These are the replica with the graphics in a higher position ...
And here's a story regarding the possible fate of this Monaco. This is from 6 years and 2 months ago ...
This Monaco had been for sale for about a year and a half. We tried selling it for as long as we could but no one seemed interested. Last Saturday we let it go for $100 to Monster Jams Inc., a production firm that presents monster truck races in arenas across the country. Right now this car is probably sitting at the Kay County fairgrounds somewhere in Oklahoma. That's where Monster Jams was putting on truck event this weekend. I'm afraid to think of what it will look like by Saturday night.
They sold it for one hundred dollars? To a monster truck show?? Hard to fathom.
They were so uninterested in money, they didn't even sell the 14o speedo separately.
But back to that beautiful monaco 6 years ago - no matter how it's sliced, no interest sounds fishy. I think a used car dealership would offer more than $100 for it. Even a junkyard would offer more than $100 for it. Even selling it for scrap would yield more than $100. And certainly e-bay would fetch more. Maybe it was some type of tax-loss strategy.
your friend in considering the strange, arthur

Nice work on the composite shot. Because of the pan, blurry image, and at that angle, it could be several years, I did the screen grab of the grille, which identifies it as the best year. Corvette Summer is a campy '70s flick, but great for the car nut as it has a seemingly never-ending supply of cool old cars in nearly every scene.
