This 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS Tribute delivers the ideal mix of cool vintage style and the right upgrades - including the small block V8. So as you look it all over, you'll soon see the kind of classic coupe that was made to be enjoyed.
This hardtop makes an attractive first impression. The clean lines show off the crisp styling that established the first-gen Chevelle as a terrific Chevy. Chrome bumpers, a sporty hardtop, and a well-done share of classic Marina Blue all make for a nice classic that looks good out cruising. It has a nice upgraded Super Sport style with clean sides, ribbed rockers, and SS badging. Plus, there are a few subtle sporty upgrades with the bright dual exhaust tips, and those classic Rally wheels are actually larger modern 17-inch units.
The interior has the clean look of a good driver's car. You'll appreciate classic details like the bright dash, the Delco AM radio there for display, and the working dome light. You even have the main components for air conditioning already in place (it will need servicing to fully function again.). But what this interior does best is speak directly to the driver. You have the classic SS-style SS upgrade to front bucket seats. Plus, you have a B&M floor shifter, sports steering wheel, auxiliary readouts, and a column-mounted tach.
Under the hood is a nice upgrade. The mighty 350 cubic-inch small block was still a few years away from the Chevelle when this coupe went into production. But today we love them for their hardy nature and good power. So it's great to see the upgrade done with the right additions. This includes a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, an HEI distributor, and center-bolt valve covers. Plus, the headers add power while they also contribute to the sweet tune of the X-pipe dual exhaust and Pypes mufflers. It's an all-around solid driver with power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission. And don't forget that the wheel upgrade also means you get to fit better modern tires.
This is iconic vintage style mixed with the right driver-ready upgrades. That makes for a great hardtop classic that you just know you want to take out on the road. But if you want to hit the streets tomorrow, you need to call today!
