What Is a G-Body Car?

A G-body car is a model that was made by General Motors. The G-body models began production with the A-body designation in 1978, but their designation was changed to G-body when the new front-wheel-drive A-body models were introduced in 1982.

The G-body cars include the Buick Regal, the Chevrolet Monte Carlo, the Chevrolet El Camino, the Chevrolet Malibu and many others. The Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS was popularized by NASCAR. The Buick Regal models were sought after by those looking for some of the fastest production cars in the United States at the time. The G-body cars were some of the most popular cars of 1980s and remain popular today for rebuilding and restoring.
