1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Convertible
The Chevy Chevelle is a vehicle we hold near and dear to our hearts. It's an iconic muscle car that led the pack during its time. If you love the Chevelle as much as we do, you'll probably be interested in these fun Chevelle facts: 1. The Chevelle was built in 10 different plants in two countries during its 10 year run. 2. Surprisingly, the Chevelle shared a platform with both the Monte Carlo and the El Camino. 3. There was a version of the Chevelle only available in Canada that had a slightly different grille and trim. It was called the Pontiac Beaumont. 4. The Chevelle was the intended successor of the Tri-Five but ended up carving out its own place in Chevy history.
For consignment, a 1969 version of the Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu, the beneficiary of a body off restoration 18 years ago with new floors, fenders and a hood added, and now fitted with a 454ci V8, 4-speed Muncie with a Hurst shifter, 12-bolt rear with 2.73 gears, and all in a Cortez Silver coating with SS embellishments and looking sharp!
The it year to have for the Chevelle, 1969 and this one is true to form bathed in Cortez Silver which can be described as not perfect but certainly up to snuff. A rakish front grille and dual headlights with a body line accentuating that diving down and to the back of the car from the edge of the headlights. This trimming then runs rearward just above the rocker and to the rear wheel well. A larger two-pointed spear runs along the beltline and is in black from stem to stern. The canvas convertible top is also in black with a glass rear window and looks in good condition. When it's down a black tonneau covering hides it securely behind the rear bench. Badging is correct, and on the back just below the wide and long rear trunk deck are angled taillights on either rear quarter with another nice bumper below and some trimming and SS badging in between. 15-inch deep dish rally wheels are on all 4 corners and are all wrapped in BF Goodrich raised white lettered tires.
Here we gaze upon a black plastic SS logoed steering wheel fronting a rally gauge dash sporting a tachometer that redlines at 5500 rpm. Instruments are clean and neatly preserved within a black dash front. Centrally located within the dash are the slides for the heat and defroster along with a newer AM/FM/ Cassette radio which is neatly installed. As for the seating arrangement, nicely curved semi high back buckets with a headrest all in black vinyl, as well as a rear bench is seen in the same patterning back. A center console is in, and a Hurst shifter rises proudly from the center of it. Round Astro Ventilation vents pepper the dash, and the top is padded black shiny vinyl totally un-marred. Below flooding the floors is a black carping which shows some fading on the hump but is in otherwise good condition.
Now appearing under the hood is a 454ci V8 circa 1973, which is not original to this car but has more than adequate horsepower especially with the addition of a mild performance camshaft and HEI ignition. It has the correct red/orange block paint, shiny chrome valve covers, and a single Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor on top of an aluminum Edelbrock intake manifold. A 4-speed manual transmission in M20 Muncie form is on back and power gets pushed rearward to a CKD stamped 12-bolt 2.73 conventional rear. All is very nicely cleaned and detailed for this engine bay.
Just a great job on the restoration of the undercarriage, straight rust free black painted steel frame, black rustproofed floor pans, and suspension which is noted to have rebuilt independent front suspension with new control arms and coil springs and a 4 link rear suspension with new coil springs. Brakes are power disc for the front and power drums for the rear. A Flowmaster dual exhaust is aiding the exhale from the 454 cubes with the assistance of snake-like long tube headers.
A smile on my muscle car partner in crime aficionado's face says it all after his test drive. "He Likes It!..Hey Mikey..." He reported a quick fire up, good handling, solid braking, and awe-inspiring acceleration. It was like being in an all new 1969 car, as all functions were operational at the time of the drive and thanks to some warm spring weather gave way for him to go topless.
If you are in the market for a nice Chevelle SS tribute from this Muscle era, then this is certainly a turnkey adventure for you. All the work has been meticulously performed and get in and go. It's that easy, and you'll be looking great to boot in this silver bullet, Cortez Silver that is.
