Description:

1978 Chevrolet Malibu Malibu Classic

My first owner ordered me special. I'm a first year g-body specially ordered with a 60/40 bench seat, 305, and factory 4 speed. I'm one of 94 built at the Canadian plant. I run and drive literally like new with no rattles or shakes, and I am a true survivor. I have power steering, power brakes, factory front and rear sway bars, and an am/fm stereo for options.
My owner loved me and recorded oil changes, fuel, and service for the first few years of my life. I was then sold to my second owner who put me away in indoor dry storage in 1986. I wasn't taken out of storage until early 2018.
I was carefully brought back to life with all my mechanicals refreshed including full brakes, battery, spark plugs, clutch fan, fuel line, exhaust, hoses, radiator, rally wheels and new bf goodrich t/a radial tires. My headliner and visors have just been replaced and came out perfectly. I am rust-free, with no previous body work, and original paint (except for hood). I have some door dings, and a slightly tweaked rear-bumper.
I would loved to be left alone in my original condition as a survivor because of my rarity and uniqueness, an honest and true 1978 automobile.
I am ready to drive to your local cruise show or even cross-country.
