This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu has the cool classic family V8 cruiser vibe, and there are even some nice updates to keep it a solid driving classic. Plus, with the iconic status of this car and all the component upgrades out there, we bet you're also thinking about the value price that makes this a great base for whatever you want to create.
This car is quite a fun find. After all, we often see the two-door versions, but some of us like to be different with a sedan. And this has the right fundamentals of good lines, clean glass, and tasteful Madeira Maroon paint. The brightwork is clean and complete with form-hugging chrome bumpers, Malibu red stripe rockers, and Rally wheels. Overall, it's the right mix of a clean style while also giving you a family car appeal. That means you still get the iconic Chevelle lines and a finish that has seen some use. Like the kind of Chevy that's been in the carport since grandma and grandpa were just known as mom and pop. That's why there's a feeling like this would make a pretty cool sleeper project.
The red interior looks quite attractive against the maroon exterior. The premium Malibu trim level is showcased on the classic two wide rows of bench seats with detailed, textured cloth inserts. There's also classic bright trim on the doors, dash, and seatbacks. It's a nice vintage style, right down to the dual-spoke steering wheel and AM radio for a display. And if you feel like having an even more comfortable cruiser, there's an under-dash R134a air conditioning system that just needs servicing. The full impression of the interior is similar to the exterior, where it's complete and vintage with the right level of use that makes it easy to hop in on a whim and go for a drive.
The whole theme so far has been about a cool cruiser and easy driver. And the engine bay is where it all comes together. This is a year-correct 327 cubic-inch V8 block. It fires up and runs with an impressive eagerness and smoothness. It has a quiet level of operation that reveals just how much respect this Chevy has seen over the years. There's even an upgraded aluminum radiator to help keep the V8 running cool when you're cruising. So while we know these small blocks love power upgrades, and a hardy big block can make the sleeper of your dreams, we also like how this one is an honest and confident classic just as it is. And the power steering, automatic transmission, and wide Cooper Cobra tires make it nice to hit the road.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the cool Chevelle Malibu that's a lot of fun on day one, and there's plenty to think about what you're going to do with it in the future - especially with all the money it leaves in your budget. Call now!
