History - This Chevelle Malibu 283 started its life out as a Willow Green (Code H) Chevelle with Willow green interior. The seats are the same config as 1965 but the shifter has now been moved to the floor coupled with a very reliable Tremec 5 spd. It was manual shift on the tree (hence new steering clumn with tilt wheel) purchased in Riverside, A in 1965. Since then the car has been restored as a custom cruiser. 2nd owner did 85% of the work and I completed the last 15% I am third owner of the car in last 51 years. This Chevelle is gorgeous, uns great and is an extremely reliable cruiser. Prefect for the guy or gall who wants to just hit the key and drive without any major issues that seems to come with a lot of muscle cars. This car was purchased for my daughter and I to enjoy andgo to cars and coffee and shows on the weekends.
