 Vehicle Description
Gateway Classic Cars is proud to offer a very cool opportunity to start or continue your drag racing career. For sale is a 1978 Chevrolet Malibu which has been converted to a pretty mean street/strip car. Under the hood youll find a fire breathing 454 CID Big Block V8. This engine has been built with 396 closed chamber heads, roller rockers, flat top pistons, Launati hydraulic cam, stainless steel valves, new stock crank and forged rods. The engine breathes in through a Weiand high rise intake and out through a set of Hooker headers. A Holley 770 street avenger carburetor supplies enough fuel to stoke the fire whether youre blasting down the track or terrorizing the streets. Backing the big block is a built Turbohydramatic transmission with Kevlar clutches and a 2,800 RPM stall. The car is finished in a subtle coat of gray gloss paint which makes it look a bit like a sleeper. The racing wheels and added cowl scoop are the only things giving away the power under the hood, until of course you fire it up and shake with window panes. The exhaust is headers run to true duals, with dumps after the high performance mufflers. The engine sounds healthy and runs great as it has less than 500 miles since being built. For a high performance engine, it sure starts easily and is quite well mannered on the streets. The power steering has been removed, but the steering wheel is large enough to maneuver the car well. Its sitting on street tires in all four corners right now, but 2 drag tires are mounted and ready for the track. This would be a great set up to drive to the track, swap the rear wheels to make some passes, and then swap back to drive home. With the drag tires and the current set up the car runs 12s, but with open headers and a different set of gears, you could be in the 11s. This is a great car to get into the drag racing hobby, or to simply go driving around town making noise. Located in our St. Louis Showroom, this 1978 Chevrolet Malibu can be seen including 50+ HD pictures and video at For additional information please call 618-271-3000 or email
