4610 Pet Lane
This 1981 Chevrolet Malibu Wagon Restomod is a sleek machine that has been given a full custom build to be a unique panel delivery. And with an upgraded V8 under the hood, you know the real work this versatile sedan delivery does best is haul asphalt.
Chevrolet never built a Nomad or sedan delivery of this Malibu. But the way this one looks, you swear they did. The custom work is a pure professional-quality build. They started with a wagon body, and with its angular style, it's arguably the best-looking wagon of the era. And now the sheetmetal looks seamless, and they even added sport mirrors and deleted trim like the door handles to really get it looking smooth. So the sleek custom side panels look like it's the perfect place to hang the logo of your fictitious surf board company. And the reason why this one reminds you of a sunny day at the beach is because the metallic blue has a nice shine like the light catching an ocean wave. So it's great to have this color on the bumpers and custom body kit, too. Even details like the grille and the steelies inside the Rally wheel package are painted to match for a thoughtful total look.
The interior takes all the comfy factory Malibu features and adds in the right custom details. The exterior blue theme continues on the upholstery, including the full custom carpeted cargo area. Up front are two high-back bucket seats with a center console in-between. The AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input means the ideal driving music. Plus, you got nice sporty upgrades like the Grant GT steering wheel, floor shifter, auxiliary gauge trio, and Sun Super Tach. Features like the remote door openers and the R134a air conditioning will need servicing if you want them fully functional. The value price on this full custom build helps leave room in the budget for any improvements like that you may want to make.
A custom build like this deserves a powerful heart, and the engine bay doesn't disappoint. You're looking at Chevy's mighty 350 cubic-inch V8 that has been upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, and shorty headers that add power as they also contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. There is also nice supporting components, like an aluminum radiator and good belts, hoses, and wires. As a true custom classic, this was built to cruise. That's why you have great driving features, like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power front disc brakes, and new wide Cooper Cobra tires.
You're looking at an impressive total package for quite a nice price. So you know you need to hurry if you want to take this custom build home. Call today!!!
