1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu

This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu is pure nastiness on wheels. It's got a fantastic street-brawler look, backed up with a smart-running small block and a capable suspension to put it all on the pavement. It's still Bowtie cool inside, but this is one car that will be impossible to ignore at the next cruise-in.The blacked-out look makes this car look mean, and that's no accident. The two-tone paint scheme also gives it a long, low look, and the combination of dark purple over black makes it stand out. A flash of bright sliver not only separates the two colors, but does a good job of highlighting the Chevelle's awesome curves, which usually go unnoticed with monochromatic paint. All the trim and brightwork was painted to match, black on the bottom and purple on the top, helping it all blend together in a seamless way. The original hood looks especially good here, where the faux vents add to the aggressive look. Panel gaps are good all around and it's been completely de-badged, so whether it's a Chevelle or a Malibu, we can't really say. Those giant quarter panels are straight, the beautiful hardtop roof line looks as good here as it ever did, and the stance is just about perfect. If you want attention, this car's going to get it for you.The black interior dials it back a bit, sticking to the factory look for the most part. A comfortable bench seat has been reupholstered in correct black vinyl with matching OEM door panels and fresh carpets on the floors. GM's handsome steering wheels of the period really need no dressing up, and this one still carries its original horn ring and chrome accent rings on the rim. It's also using the original gauges, including the wide speedometer, so it looks right. A modern AM/FM/CD stereo head unit lives in the dash, still angled upwards like the original and someone has thoughtfully added a set of Chevelle-logo floor mats for protection. That stereo powers a custom set of speakers and a subwoofer in the trunk, all built into a very cool enclosure that lends it a finished look.Power comes from a strong-running 327 cubic inch V8, which, like the interior, prefers to stick with the factory's way of doing things. That means a 4-barrel carburetor up top, an aluminum intake manifold, and Chevy Orange paint on the block. Aluminum valve covers and a chrome air cleaner dress things up a bit, and you'll note that the firewall, inner fenders, and even the brake booster have all been painted metallic purple to match the bodywork. A fresh alternator lives up top and original cast iron exhaust manifolds feed a cackling Flowmaster dual exhaust system that terminates just ahead of the rear axle. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission sends the twist aft to a 10-bolt rear end, which is hanging on upgraded Hotchkis control arms, new shocks, and lowering springs. As I said, the stance is just about perfect, especially with those blacked-out Boss Motorsports wheels, which wear 245/45/18 front and 275/40/18 rear performance radials.There are not a lot of cars that make heads turn like this one, and it's got plenty of power on tap so it's not just a poser. A few steps away from being a major show winner or a slam-dunk just the way it is, you're going to love driving this brutal-looking Chevelle. Call today!
