The Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 305 V8 is a four-person luxury coupe with two doors originally released to the public in 1969. The vehicle features a 116-inch wheelbase based on an A-body Chevelle platform. Chevrolet made additional options available for this model, including a three- or four-speed manual transmission or a two-speed automatic transmission. Purchasers of this model could also choose to have air conditioning, power seats and variable-ratio power steering installed. Chevrolet also offered power windows, Strato bucket seats and full instrumentation to its customers.

The Monte Carlo featured low-profile RWL radial tires, rally wheels and a wind-tunnel tuned nose. This model does not carry bright work, but it does feature a small rear spoiler that helps it attain a drag coefficient of .375. Chevrolet added bulges to the car's fenders to provide it with a muscular appearance.

Chevrolet produced the Monte Carlo as a response to the 1970 Ford Thunderbird and was showcased next to the Pontiac Grand Prix and the Buick Riviera. Of the 136,780 Montecarlos Chevrolet produced, 24,050 were SS models.
