This 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Dale Earnhardt Signature Series is number 7 of 25 built. Always stored in a climate controlled facility, it has been driven just 655 miles and remains in excellent as-original condition. In addition to its 3.8 L/200 HP V6 engine and 4-speed automatic transmission, the car incorporates power rack and pinion steering, 4-wheel anti-lock power disc brakes and new-for-1998 satin-finish aluminum wheels with special center caps specific to this edition. The car stands out from the pack with its Black paint, Silver-and-Red graphic trim, Goodwrench Racing logos and facsimiles of the late NASCAR champion’s autograph. The Bowtie-shaped bright exhaust tips are an interesting and exclusive detail. Optional equipment includes a leather interior, Dual Zone air conditioning, power windows, seats and locks and AM/FM stereo with CD player. A special bonus is the presence of Earnhardt’s signature on the passenger-side sun visor.
