Fast Facts:
  • The Monaco was the flagship model for Dodge, and the Royal Monaco Brougham station wagon (shown here) was the top of the line trim
  • The 4 barrel 440ci V8 was the most powerful engine option, which was backed by a 3spd Torqueflite automatic transmission
  • The Brougham wagon weighed over two tons and offered 101 cubic feet of cargo space
  • The Torsion “Quiet Ride” suspension featured strategically placed rubber bushings to reduce road noise and vibrations. The wheelbase was a whopping 122 inches – one of the longest in Dodge history (for a car)
  • This generation Monaco was released just days before the 1973 fuel crisis. As a result, Chrysler received major backlash for offering huge, gas-guzzling cars. To boost their image, Chrysler needed to show that they cared about saving the driver fuel, but it was too late to design or integrate a new piece of fuel-saving technology within the vehicle’s systems
  • As a last minute approach, Chrysler created an option called the “Fuel Pacer”, which added a vacuum switch to the intake manifold. This switch would shut close at around 4″ of vacuum, triggering the fender-mounted turn signal to flash and alert the driver of excessive fuel consumption. Tapping into the existing turn signal circuitry saved Chrysler the hassle (and cost) of re-designing the dashboard to include a warning light
Key Model Year Changes:
  • First year of the hidden headlights
  • First year of the “Royal Monaco Brougham” naming scheme
  • The 3rd generation Monaco was released in 1974
  • In 1977, the Monaco downsized from the C platform to Chrysler’s intermediate B platform
  • The Monaco received minimal changes after 1975, ending production in 1978. The model line was redesigned and renamed the Dodge St. Regis
