1965 Chevrolet Malibu

You don't see many 1965 Chevrolet Malibus this straight and clean. Better yet, his one comes complete with a 350, eep black paint, nd a gorgeous black interior. Chevy positioned these as the cars that could do anything, nd even today this handsome hardtop will draw a lot of admirers everywhere it goes.Originally Mist Blue, obody will complain about the gorgeous black paint this Malibu wears today. But as you know, hen you decide to paint your car black it means a big investment in bodywork and finishing and cutting corners is virtually impossible. Fortunately for you, he new owner, he quality shows in laser-straight panels, deep, niform shine without the usual swirl marks, nd doors that open and close with precision. The low-profile looks of the Malibu have aged well, nd this one has a timeless grace that somehow escapes the cars that get oversized wheels, owered suspensions, nd thumping stereos. Instead, his one exudes class and dignity, nd with a muted rumble from its exhaust, ooks every bit the part of a gentleman's express. There's minimal trim, lthough what is in place is in excellent condition, ith nice chrome bumpers, straight grille, nd correct Malibu SS badges on the quarters.The black vinyl interior is the right choice with the black bodywork, resenting a clean, lmost sinister overall look. A bench seat makes this a big, omfortable car with room for everyone, nd the seat upholstery is expertly restored with correct materials and patterns. New black carpets and fresh door panels look fantastic, iving the interior a bright, iry feel that makes this car very easy to live with. The original gauges are in very good shape, urrounded by a bright instrument panel that shows none of the usual fading or discoloration, nd there are auxiliary gauges under the dash. The original AM radio is gone, eplaced by a later AM/FM setup and the massive trunk is quite tidy and in what appears to be original condition.As a code 36 V8 Malibu, he 350 under the hood is a natural, lthough the original engine was probably a 283. Rebuilt and dressed like a late-model factory piece, here are no surprises here, ust a great-running Chevy small block. The chrome air cleaner lives atop a Rochester 4-barrel carburetor and a Holley intake manifold. A newer alternator, resh plug wires, nd long-tube headers ensure plenty of power without sacrificing its ability to be driven every day, nd with power steering, t's easy to handle. A PowerGlide automatic transmission shifts seamlessly and delivers bulletproof reliability, hile a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end doesn't mind the horsepower. A new dual exhaust system with turn-downs ahead of the rear axle gives it a great V8 voice but doesn't betray this car's low-key demeanor. Handling is crisp, s Chevelles have always featured coil springs all around, nd braking is confident despite the lack of power assist. Four 16-inch Cragar mags are a period look with a modern twist, nd the 225/60/16 blackwall radials offer vastly improved handling.Just a tidy, o-nonsense Malibu, lbeit one with a great look. Forget the later A-bodies, his one has the right look and plenty of performance for the price. Call today!
