    Wow! A true 71 Brougham. Cornering lights, CC, Tilt, Speed Control, power Windows, Road Wheels, likely 440.
    Thank God it's not a Polara or I'd have to step up.. Looks delicious!
    Can anyone determine the original color? I can't get a handle on the door jamb shots.

    Looks like it was tan or light gold originally.

    Yeah! I wasn't looking at that. I was more concerned about the chrome on the pedals. :D

    I own a butterscotch car and have owned a citron yella car and neither of those are close. Lime is equally as far off too.
    In other words that whole page looks consistently off.

    The seats are a really cool pattern and look great!
    I really like the rear brake lights. Do they light up all the way across or only on the outside corners of the tail panel?

    Unfortunately they do not. Here are @71Polara383's Monacucamonga (left) and my own Medina (right) the night before the first CATL in September 2019. In the middle is @LocuMob's Cicada, a 1967 (Edit: 1968) Monaco.

    I hate that cloth in those seats. In my experience it is " itchy". The ad says interior on this car is green ... that is even tough to tell.

    Sometimes green interior can look black but I'm not seeing any green in this one. Even the arm rest picture in the daylight. Who knows though.

    Well, I had a long chat and got additional pics. Very pleasant seller. He got the car last year from a buddy of his. This Monaco sedan was sold new in California back in 1971 and spent the first 20 or so years of its life there, then got moved to Michigan where it lived in a barn. One-family car, all the paperwork from new including the sales papers from the original dealership.

    We have a winner :thumbsup: GY4

    The seller told me that the current paint job is "cheap and looks old" -- so I would factor in a repaint. Luckily, only the outside was repainted (not the door jambs etc.), possibly following a minor ding on the passenger fender (fixed apparently without bondo, though eyes on the car would be needed to confirm).

    L-code, so I am out unless the price drops substantially. With the complete documentation from new, all the options, the almost perfect condition of the interior (no cracks or tears anywhere that I could see in the photos that the seller sent to me today; only defects seem to be one cigarette burn mark on the driver's seat vinyl and a missing dome lamp), the solid condition of the underside (based on the pics I got), and the fact that it has H51 A/C, I was quite interested -- but I really would prefer an N-code.

    I do! H7X9 black interior
