What Henney did build however were two Monte Carlo models. They were constructed from using tow 1952 Mayfair Hardtops, used1953 trim items. Kelsey Hayes chrome wheels and rear mounted spare. The tops were reworked so the center section was removable, but the solid rear section would remain in Coupe DeVille style. Initially intended as a production model, which would been priced at $ 9100. However, it seems the project stopped with only two cars being completed.

No photos of the Monte Carlo could be found at the time this book went to press.

Some sources say the Monte Carlo was intended to join the Balboa as a show car, but it doesn't appear that they ever went on the show circuit.
