Outstanding condition 1966 Chevelle Malibu. Very solid car from top to bottom. Beautiful "off white" paint with steel grey SS hood inserts. New 15" Rally rims with trim rings and caps, painted steel grey with new BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires, 245/60 in the rear and 205/60 in the front. Bumpers, grill, tailight bezels, etc and all trim is either new or in excellent shape. Windshield and side glass is all excellent, back glass is good but does have a few scratches. This car is a true eye catcher from the outside. On the inside is an all black bucket seat interior with a floor shift console. I would say the interior is a 9.5 on a 10 scale. Dash is excellent, new head liner, original console has been restored, seats, door panels and carpet are very nice. There is a custom gauge cluster mounted right above the console, and a vintage air system professionally installed that blows nice cold air. There is an am/fm stereo cassette player with 6x9 speakers mounted on the rear deck. All new weatherstripping. The trunk was restored with a new pan put in many years ago when it was first restored in the 90's that is still very solid. I repainted it with the splatter paint and made a custom heavy rubber/plastic diamond plate trunk matt that keeps whatever you put in it from sliding around. There is a spare tire mounted in the trunk. The engine compartment always gets compliments as it is done with all the correct Eastwood paints and is very clean. The motor is the original 283 that has been warmed over nicely. An aluminum Holley manifold and 4 barrel carb, new Sanderson headers and new Flowmaster exhaust make for a great running and sounding car. The original powerglide has been swapped out for a turbo 350 with shift kit. This car runs fantastic and always runs cool, no overheating. The car has been lowered with a spring and shock kit and has a great stance. Power steering and power brakes, disc up front, drums in the rear. I have a lot of the paperwork from the guy I bought it from a few years ago. The car was nice when I got it but was ready for new paint (needed no body work), the interior was in need of a tune up, new wheels and tires, sat to high for me so I lowered it, and tuned up the engine and trunk areas. Otherwise it was just a good solid car. Frame and floors are solid and undercoated. The only two items that do not work are the console mounted clock and the speedometer. The mileage shows 115,400. The reason it doesn't work is because when the turbo 350 was added, the shifter linkage is in the way of the speedo cable plugging into the transmission. I assume there is some type of cable available but I never pursued looking into it. Otherwise, everything else works on this car. It is a great driver that really shows well. I finished the restoration this past spring and have only put about 1000 miles on it since so it is virtually new from that standpoint. My next project is ready to start so something has to go. My loss is your gain - take it and start cruising and having a good time with a finished car that will have you the envy of all your hot rod buddies!
