You're looking at an awesomely restored 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Convertible. That means a terrific sleek color combo, solid small block power, comfy A/C interior, and an overall clean style, right down to the undercarriage.
This was an awesome year for the Chevelle. Coke bottle curves and crisply creased fender ends came together to create an icon. And with something this stylish, it looks particularly nice in premium Malibu form. But what really sets this one apart is the awesome look that comes from a recent restoration completed only about a few hundred miles ago. Butternut Yellow is a great year-correct color, especially when given a high-quality application that looks sleek and bright on this sunshine-friendly convertible. There are bright chrome bumpers, bezels, and a grille. And there's also a distinct trim line that extends from the grille down to the rockers, and then flows to the rear for an added touch of style. So it has a very period-correct premium vibe you want in an upper-level Malibu. Plus, polished exhaust tips and Cragar SS wheels give you the right hint of sporty style that makes an American V8 cruiser so cool.
The white convertible top has a stylish look against the creamy yellow paint. So you'll be glad to take it down to reveal a well-done white interior. The recent restoration means this one is beautifully detailed with a time capsule-like everywhere from the button-top seatbacks to the intricate door panel trim. And this is thoughtfully laid out where high traffic areas like the carpeting and steering wheel are done in black to make sure it's easy to take out for a cruise on a whim. In fact, making it a true driver seemed to be a top priority. Because while the restoration like to make this look like today is 1968, this also has the right well-integrated upgrades. It includes a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with aux input for better driving music, and the modern R134a air conditioning means you can cruise with the top down long into the summer season.
Under the hood is classic Chevy small block power. But while the 307 cubic-inch V8 was available in '68, this upgrade has been built for better quality modern driving. That means upgrades like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and an MSD ignition. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, the exceptionally fresh and clean look lets you know this is the kind of drop-top that knows how to confidently cruise near or far. Add in power steering, the numbers matching Powerglide automatic transmission, power brakes, front discs, and newer Firestone Firehawk tires, this Malibu is fun for far more than just ice cream runs.
This fresh restoration combines crisp looks on the outside, A/C comfort on the inside, and serious power under the hood. So to find it all on a classic Chevelle convertible is truly an irresistible package. Call today!!!
