1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu
Current Bid: $19,000 (USD) by: Stephanie
This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu is a restored hardtop coupe with a custom exhaust system, air conditioning, and Rallye wheels that originated in Utah and has been owned by the seller for 18 years. It was ordered new with a 283ci V8 and Powerglide transmission but is now powered by a 355ci V8 paired with a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission. Finished in Artesian Turquoise over a matching vinyl interior, this Chevelle is now offered with a clear Texas title in the seller’s name.
This Malibu is painted Artesian Turquoise (KK) and was the recipient of a full restoration about 20 years ago. The body is reported to be have been rust-free and did not require the replacement of any panels prior to the restoration. Current blemishes consist of some stone chips in the paint, but the glass is reported to be original and, like the brightwork, in good condition. A dual exhaust system with polished tips is installed at the rear.
Factory steel 15” Rallye wheels with trim rings and chrome center caps are wrapped in redline tires of unknown age. The suspension has been lowered from stock ride height.
The interior is trimmed in the original vinyl with a blue dash and carpet. A Vintage Air air conditioning system was added.
Instrumentation includes a horizontal 120-mph speedometer and gauges for oil pressure, coolant temperature, fuel level, and voltage. The 5-digit odometer reads approximately 84k miles, though true chassis mileage. The seller reports that the replacement drivetrain has about 20k miles.
The current 355ci V8 is a replacement of the original 283ci V8, and it has been upgraded with 461 camel hump heads and roller rockers. The seller reports that the drivetrain and suspension are leak-free. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 4-speed automatic 700R4 transmission.
Additional undercarriage photos can be found in the gallery.
The sale includes the car’s original engine and transmission, as well as photos, receipts, and documentation of the restoration process.
