1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Hardtop
One owner 1971 Chevrolet Malibu 2-door hardtop powered by the original (numberâ€™s matching) 307 c.i./200 h.p. V-8. The original title is still retained from 7/12/1971 when the car was purchased new just before the owner went into the military and sent to Vietnam. Upon his return in 1974 the car was used for daily transportation. Never in an accident and almost always garage kept. Well maintained and a pleasure to drive. It starts easily and has never given the owner any problems.
Only options ordered were power steering and an automatic transmission. No AC or power brakes.
In February of 2001, the top portion of the engine was gone through including a valve job and new timing chain with gears. The short block appeared fine and did not need to be rebuilt.
The stock Turbo 350 automatic transmission has never been apart, except for normal maintenance being performed. It shifts smoothly without slipping in any gear.
The suspension is stock except for the addition of period correct Cragar 14â€ wheels and Goodyear radial tires (195 x 60R x 14 front; 245 x 50R x 14 rear). Stock 10-bolt Chevrolet differential with 3.23:1 gears (open) were retained.
In 2017 the owner had the car repainted in the original Ascot Blue using a 2-stage urethane. As far as the owner knows, only the floor pan on the passenger sided was replaced and all of the remaining body panels are original.
The interior was reupholstered in a period correct vinyl pattern and the headliner was replaced. Upgraded carpeting was installed and the original dash pad is in excellent condition. Only addition is an aftermarket AM/FM radio. All factory gauges function normally (speedometer, odometer, fuel). Electric wipers do not work.
Additionally, all the exterior chrome was either replaced or replated. Windows go up and down easily and all of the glass appears to be original.
Total miles driven since the restoration was completed in 2017 are approximately 1000.

PLEASE BUY WITH CONFIDENCE
I have been an active eBay seller of cars and other items for more than 15 years and maintained a 100% rating during most of that period. Approximately 10 years ago I started an online service assisting owners of Classic, Vintage, and Muscle cars to sell their vehicles without them leaving the garage. These are private individual owners who do not want to deal with the public and all the endless phone calls, â€œTire kickersâ€, and other nonsense that goes on when trying to sell a car. They just want someone to sell it!!
