1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu
GREAT CRUISER, NUMBERS MATCHING 307V8, AUTO, PS, PB, TON OF ORIGINAL DOCS!
HIGHLIGHTS: Nice original interior, slick red paint job, rally wheels, Numbers Matching 307 V8, many original documents, beautiful Malibu!
BODY OVERVIEW: The exterior body panels on this Chevelle are very straight, and it looks to have been well-kept over the years. According to the original paperwork that's included in the sale, this chevelle was sold new in New York and as such, the underside is in remarkable condition for a northern car of this age that hasn't seen a full restoration. The floors are all original and haven't been undercoated or painted, so in other words no one has tried to hide anything on the bottom-side. The body on this car is surprisingly solid, we've found only a little bit of body filler in the typical spots on the passenger side quarter panel.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The paint job on this car is an older repaint, but it has really held its shine! Originally leaving the factory in tan, the new red repaint really spices up the look of this car. The paint job is what we would call a nice, driver-quality paint job that looks nice but doesn't prevent you from enjoying your car for fear of damaging a high-dollar paint job.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is in shocking condition, especially when you look closely and realize it is nearly all original! Amazingly, the interior has survived all of these years and still looks great. A few of the stitches on the driver's bench seat have started to pull loose, but beyond that, there are no rips, tears or signs of abuse. While a beige/parchment two-tone may not be the most desirable interior color combination in the world, it still looks nice against the exterior color and is simply too nice to warrant a color change.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Far from tired, the numbers-matching 307V8 hauls this little cruiser just fine. This is the perfect weekend cruising car! It may drip a drop of oil here and there, but it runs like a top. Coupled with recently added power front disc brakes, this car stops on a dime! The steering is tight due to some recently added front end components, and overall this is a very enjoyable car to drive. Recently added shocks and springs make for a comfortable ride!
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The interior originality, upgrade brakes, and of course all of the original documents that come with it (including the original key punch-outs and the original window sticker AND warranty booklet with the original owner's name on it). All of that on top of how comfortable this car is to drive! It really handles beautifully.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Red with parchment interior works well for this car, but it isn't for everyone.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The shift indicator only reads from Drive onward, but other than that this car is ready to hit the road!
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? This car has mass appeal, and should be the right buy for anyone in search of an affordable American muscle icon!
