RealRides of WNY - 1967 Monaco

This 1967 Dodge Monaco was spotted last summer just before Canada Day at a Saturday night cruise in the Sobeys parking lot in Dunnville. Chrysler Corp. restyled all of their big cars for 1967. Although it’s not shared with the convertible, the two-door hardtop roofline was perhaps the most unusual feature of the new-for-’67 lineup. With a semi-fastback roofline and a reverse angle rear-quarter window, the big Dodge (and Plymouth & Chrysler as well) certainly stood out from the crowd (bottom of page). And those taillights on the Dodge… no way you could say you didn’t notice them at night! In an age of colorfully named paint choices, the moniker used for today’s RealRide paint job is… Yellow. YawnA simliar FoMoCo color was Springtime Yellow, while some GMs were offered in Butternut Yellow; even little AMC was more imaginitive, offering both Hialeah and Apollo Yellows.
