1977 Monte Carlo
Note: 1977 was the only model year that Chevrolet's mid-size car line was longer and heavier than the full-size car line, due to the downsizing of the full-size cars a year earlier than the mid-size downsizing.

1978 Monte Carlo
Note: 1978 was the first year of the third generation Monte Carlo. The '78 models were a foot shorter in length and weighed nearly 800 pounds less. This was the first year that a V-6 was available in the Monte Carlo. This was also the year that the A-body car line (Malibu) merged with the G-body cars (Monte Carlo). While the two car lines had differing sheet metal, they were the same underneath.
