1970 Chevrolet Malibu Chevelle
The storied Chevelle is one of those timeless designs that looks good no matter how it's built. Stock, modified, race, pro-touring, whatever; the clean lines and balanced stance on these tough classics create a confident swagger that's universally admired. That means, if you're looking to ride in style, you really can't go wrong with a Chevrolet A-Body.
A project car for the hardcore enthusiast who wants to make a car truly his/her own. New metal all around, most of the trimmings included and the start to interior make for the beginnings of something special. Named after the beach front town sharing its namesake and originally settled by the Chumash indians, whose territory extended loosely from the San Joaquin valley to San Luis Obispo to Malibu. They named it "Humaliwo", or "the surf sounds lovely". Now residing right here on the east coast at Classic Auto Mall and awaiting your artful touch to bring this beauty back to its former glory.
Finished in satin black with a mix of various color sheet metal panels, this beauty to be is sporting new metal from AMD in the form of full rear quarter panels, fenders, inner and outer wheel houses, the passenger door, pillar posts and even the rockers. An AMD roof is also on but is just set over top of the original roof which will need replacing. Close inspection shows an unfinished job with Cleco fasteners holding some of the panels on and only partial spot welds performed. This allows for laser straight alignment of the gaps before finish welding is performed. Our consignor states that all trimmings and glass are included with the car save for the tail lights and windshield. Shiny chrome makes up the bumpers both front and rear meanwhile 15" deep dish rally wheels hold the 4 corners to the ground.
Looking inside we see door panels that are showing their age and have a distinct waviness to them. The armrests, releases and cranks have all been removed. The front buckets are covered in vinyl as well, and have a tucked roll and flat black vinyl which makes for an interesting and sporty design. The rear bench is original and presents in the same pattern as the front buckets while resting underneath totes of parts. The carpeting has been removed exposing the solid steel flooring and fronting the seating area is an unrestored original dash which has a Midland aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette radio, and a padded black topper above. Racing between the buckets is a black plastic console with a gearshift like the throttle on the Starship Enterprise dripping with aircraft nuance.
Upon lifting the hood we are met with an unfinished engine bay that holds within a 1970 307ci V8, which is quite possibly the original engine. A TH350 3-speed automatic and a 10-bolt rear are noted. A 2bbl carburetor is on top of this unfinished mill and we note the lack of inner fender liners, power steering being present, and we note that this was once an AC equipped vehicle.
Rust free with a dash of patina is what greets us up in the air. A new AMD trunk pan has been installed and we note rust free flooring in a gray and black finish along with a surface rusted frame. Coil springs with an independent suspension up front, and coil springs with 4 link suspension are on the rear. Disc brakes are the front stopping power and in the back, we note drum brakes for the whoa.
A great Chevrolet Malibu project car with the majority of the hard work and expenses already handled for you. While not a turnkey car, the possibilities are endless as to the finished product, show stopper or street beast...why not both?
