I've always wondered what a 318-equipped Monaco drives like. How adequate is the motor for that big of a car?
My '75 had one. It was adequate at best, no speed demon at all but would keep up with regular traffic. Never had it on the freeway but I imagine that steep grades would be a 2nd gear only climb. I couldn't wait to get it out.

I emailed the owner two days ago about checking the car out in person, but haven't gotten a response! Figures that months of looking for a Monaco locally, an actual blumo pops up on the bay of Es a couple of weeks after I've nearly completed my conversion.

Back on daBay. Starting bid is $2,500 -
I haven't started it in over 8 months. I'm not confident you could drive it out of here. Better it would be towed, brought up to speed, and then driven. I also have the "cop light" that should be mounted near the driver's side, so the winner can have that as well.
