This 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu is an interesting classic. It carries the right classic elements, like its factory-correct colors and numbers-matching V8. It even upholds its premium Malibu image with features like the A/C interior. But this hardtop also gives you that right touch of an upgraded Super Sport nature that always looks cool. The result is quite an eye-catching classic cruiser.
Pewter Silver is a great timeless color, so we're happy to see a trim tag that tells us this is factor-correct. The black vinyl roof is also correct, and that looks right on a premium Malibu. But this is not just some preserved Chevy. You can tell there has been a nice investment in this one to give it a bit more attitude. A respray included an upgraded to SS-style stripes on top. The black paint not only goes with the vinyl roof but also the upgraded blackout grille. It makes for the right mix of sporty and sophistication. The same goes for the later-style Super Sport wheels. Straight body lines, a good gloss, and form-fitting bumpers make for a total presentation that's quite attractive while still remaining very vintage.
The black interior goes well with all the exterior accents. So it makes for a fine package inside and out that will have you leaving the windows down on this pillarless hardtop. It's a comfortable car with a smooth dash and plush carpeting. Vintage fans will even appreciate details like the correct Malibu door panels and working dome light. A Malibu is a true vintage cruiser, and so it's nice to have two rows of wide bench seats that are good for both taking along more friends or just a more personal drive-in night. In fact, the way to really view this Chevy is as a car that you can cruise any time. That's why there have been well-integrated upgrades, like the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and the stock air conditioning controls now leading to an updated system blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. It's showcased correctly with everything from bold orange block paint to the correct decal on the air grabber. Sure, there are easy and affordable upgrades to add some serious go-fast goodies to this hardy motor. But what we really like is how this Chevelle respects its nature with an ultra-tidy engine bay to showcase the original motor. It's a solid running package, and the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs are all there so it's easy to get out there and enjoy.
This is the classic Chevelle with the right premium Malibu features, some upgraded SS sporty style, and an overall finish that makes it easy to enjoy out on the road. So if you're looking to drive an icon, you know this is the one. Call today!!!
