Yep, look at the pic in my signature. The A/C compressor is not there yet, but it was prior to my latest rage. The Monte Carlo bar style I have (curved) fits like a champ. Don't know if the chrome curved Monte Carlo bar will fit and I didn't want to know, it's just too much horsepower for me. *G*

yes, it will fit, but if you use the original style compressor brace(that runs from the back of the intake to the compressor), you may get some rubbing on the monte carlo bar from the brace.

i had a monte carlo bar on my fastback before i restored it and the bar rubbed on my a/c brace.
