This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu has a terrific vintage style with just the right amount of subtle upgrades mixed - including cold-blowing A/C - in to make it a better V8 cruiser. And the documentation on this one is some of the best you're ever going to find. So it's a quite vintage package that also has some unique touches you'll love.
The factory-correct Mist Blue is a great color for a premium 1960s machine. It was resprayed about eight years ago, but it has the luster of an even younger application. That's because this is a coupe that has been treated with respect. It's believed to be a life-long southern car with only three owners in the last 55+ years. And we can understand why a car like this would be treated as something special. The Malibu had terrific lines for '66 with a well-creased front end that curved around to continue down the full length of the car. And the flying buttress coming off the pillarless hardtop seemed almost European-inspired. So when a design is this special, it's great to have a body that's so straight. In fact, we do believe this car has the original fenders, quarters and exterior brightwork preserved in time. This coupe is proudly a premium Malibu, but there are also some sporty touches added into the mix. It has an old-school cruiser kind of style with the half-chrome headlights, a lifted stance, and American Racing Torq Thrust D wheels. So it has the look of a unique classic, and it even has the right paperwork to keep it distinct.
The interior looks terrific and really keeps the vintage feeling going. Plush carpeting, intricate door panels, a taut headliner, a smooth dash, and good upholstery on the wide bench seats make for an inviting classic cruiser. There are nice vintage details, like the trim in the seatbacks, working dome light, correct trunk mat, and the AM radio there for a display. And there's a terrific classic sensation when you grip the thin factory steering wheel. So you'll want to roll down all the windows and go for a drive to get the breeze flowing through this pillarless hardtop. And the upgrade to cold-blowing air conditioning means you can get those breezes to be as cool as you want.
Under the hood is a period-correct 283 cubic-inch V8. In fact, were told this was a GM factory replacement motor. And while that can't be confirmed, we bet you're just paying more attention to the tidy style. The bright orange black, ribbed valve covers, and fresher components are all about the right care and investments. The small block even has added pep thanks to a Summit four-barrel carburetor and a Holley intake. You'll also sport good supporting components everywhere from the Optima red top battery to the newer bushings on the sway bar. It makes for a strong driver that fires up readily and runs smoothly. So it's a good companion for the road. And the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you good control with a great old-school feel. Plus, there are good all-around driver features like power brakes, front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/A tires.
The sale comes complete with an awesome paperwork package that includes the dealer invoice, window sticker, protect-o-plate warranty card, owner's manual, bill of lading, restoration photos, and more. This is the crisp-looking icon that's ready to hit the road today. So don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
