The Monte SS was a very low key car. It only had SS454 on the moldings above the rocker trim. Very small, almost unoticeable. And it has SS on the rear body panel on the right hand side near the tail light. That was it for exterior badging. If your neighbor had the things you mention on the car, they were done after the factory built it. I have seen a lot of Montes with the SS emblems put on the fenders high behind the front wheels like the Chevelle had and even with SS on the grille and in the center of the rear body panel like a Chevelle. That is incorrect for the Monte. As are the SS stripes.

Now with enough money, you could have the dealer do a lot of things to a car. You could even get the factory to do some odd stuff. There was a Nova built around 1970 that had Plymouth Plumb Crazy paint applied at GM per the customers order.
