Just found this in ND. Picked it up Friday. We had a 78 Monza 'back in the day'. This one has black and yellow leather? with cute little bees on the seats. I'll post a pic of the seats shortly. Can anyone tell me if it came with this interior?

Hi there, welcome aboard!

I've never heard or seen a dealer option for yellow on black seats, or for bee emblems. I'd guess that a former owner was creative...

That looks like a solid car to start with!

I agree that I have never seen that Color Combo or Bumble Bee emblems before.

But it does look like a nice well preserved car.

What engine/Trans does it have?

Thanks Terry & Jeff! She seems clean, haven't had a chance to really look her over yet. Runs well, no rust, bunch of little $5 fixes to do. 3.8 liter with automatic, husband will have to add which tranny later, I can't tell.

On Facebook in Williston. Familiar with it? It's mine now, so any info isn't going to kill a sale.

Nice Starfire, great purchase. As others have stated, no yellow interiors from the factory ... and no bees. Obviously a black interior but only your cowl trim tag would verify what (driver's side, back of engine bay).
