1967 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu
Like the tri-five Chevys that came before it, the Chevelle is one of those cars GM aced right out of the gate and continued to perfect. Eventually, the marque became one of the strongest brands in automotive history; and at one point, with a full list of body styles, options, trim grades, color combinations, and engines which ranged from mild to outrageous, literally embodied the 'custom built' nature that defines the muscle car era.
For consignment, a nice looking and good performing Chevrolet Chevelle from 1967. This car hailing from Florida started out with solid sheet metal floors with no rust. A frame off restoration began in earnest and took 5 years to complete. Along the way our consignor happened upon a 1967 327ci L79 V8 with its original Holley 4-barrel carburetor, and matching Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission, so the decision was made to put this drivetrain in and as they say the rest is history. We now have a multiple award winning 1967 Malibu with an L79 power plant.
Butternut Yellow covers this car on the paint front and is a nicely done paint job. All is covered nicely on these body panels which are minding their gaps nearly perfectly. Well preserved chrome and trim very shiny and mirror-like is noted on the bumpers, and lower trim belt, which is nicely aligned on the doors. The deep flying buttress B pillars frame the trunk and the rear tinted window which is surrounded by good brite-work. On the rear of this car are corner wrap-around taillights that have a yellow painted panel connecting the two sides running directly below the trunk. A like new bumper is below and all is straight and well with this exterior restoration. Correct DG stamped rally wheels with correct trim rings are wrapped by redline rubber on all 4 corners. Can you say AACA First Junior, AACA First Senior and AACA Grand National Senior awards?
As we swing open the yellow doors, we see horizontal molded vinyl panels with nice actuator handles and cranks, along with a black vinyl armrest with chrome trimming. A long black split back bench glides between these door panels and is in showroom condition. The rear bench follows suit with no stains or rips, just perfection in black vinyl. An original GM inverted V style dash is up front and has the speedometer fuel gauge and clock inserted in an area with wood applique' strip above, housing the knobs and pulls and then some black painted metal below. A restored hard to find factory tachometer is mounted to drivers left. Black carpet is in clean and nice condition, and the headliner is just nice and tight. An original steering wheel also in black with chromed ribs fronts this original dash. Also, the radio is looking original as well as the factory eyeball A/C vents on the dash. Can you also say GoodGuys Muscle Car of the year finalist, and Hot Rod Magazine Best of show at Maple Grove Raceway?
A 327ci L79 V8 is within a nicely restored and clean engine bay. Complete with orange a Chevrolet block and heads, and red painted Chevrolet badged valve covers and some black and red tubing throughout, we are looking just dandy on the engine front. On top below the black single snout air cleaner housing is a 4-barrel carburetor. A Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission is on back and a 12-bolt 3.55 consigner stated rear axle is on.
Red painted floor pans solid framing in black contrasts against the red steel. No road dirt, no drips from bottom end of engine, independent coil springs for front suspension, 4 link with coil springs for back, power disc braking for front, and power drums for rear. Noted tail pipes have rust through on their bottoms.
This car started quickly and ran nicely. All functions worked well, and it has smooth acceleration and handling. The interior had plenty of room and was definitely comfortable. It would be a great reliable cruiser on a long drive.
Meticulous attention to detail for this all buttoned up body and frame for this car. A very nice straight rust-free presentation. If you are looking for a better than factory original car, look no further than our main showroom! This consigner went crazy, and is parting with it because hes afraid to drive it as it may get scratched. Yikes!
