Classic Car Overview

1965 Chevrolet Malibu Chevelle Convertible Looking at this interesting version of the 1965 Chevrolet Malibu convertible I have shades of the Pacific Coast Highway, driving across the Bixby Bridge, heading to point Lobos to do some Ansel Adams-esque image capturing. Top down, tickling the accelerator, headed north from Big Sur, does life get any better? I answer adamantly YES! Especially when said Chevelle was fully restored, has a transplanted in 350ci V8, comes with power steering, a new top, a rebuilt TH350 automatic, and it wears a respray in a beautiful shade of Artesian Turquoise. I give you the inspiration for this memory, the Chevy Malibu, right here on the east coast at Classic Auto Mall Exterior A respray was done during the restoration leaving this Malibu wearing a very close to factory hue of Artesian Turquoise. Some chips and areas of light body filler are noted but otherwise there is nothing remarkable on this rust free Texas example. A nicely restored horizontal ribbed grille with Chevy bowtie badge in the center has dual headlights and a shiny bumper below. As we work our way rearward, good gaps are noted throughout and up high over the passengers is a new black canvas convertible top. This top comes with a clean and clear plastic rear window and is power actuated so you can let the sun shine in with the flip of a switch. This car has been shaved of all brightwork on the sides but does still show with the Malibu Chevelle badges on the rear quarters. Out back is another mirror-like rear bumper with small square tail lights hovering above and some fancy stainless brightwork dressing the trunk lid. 15 deep dish Chevrolet rally wheels with polished trim rings on all 4 corners and are wrapped with deeply treaded staggered width blackwall rubber all around. Interior A swing of the doors and we greet 1960s styling with a white vinyl panel with a body colored turquoise steel upper section and black carpet below. This panel has the door actuators and window cranks as well as a white vinyl covered pull/armrest within a chrome bezel. Inside we see the white vinyl low back bucket seats with some chrome trimmings on the sides and black seat belts. Black carpeting is surrounding the seats and is very clean. In back is a white vinyl bench with some armrests built into the sides. Fronting the dash is an original black rimmed steering wheel with its bowtie logoed 3 spoke center. The inverted V style aluminum dash drips of 60 bowtie styling and the original center gauge cluster, which is flanked by the speedo on wheel left, and a temp, oil, fuel and amp cluster to wheel right fronts the steering wheel. Also, a clock is in the center of this cluster. The original pull knobs function perfectly and the original AM radio is in its factory location. A shout out to the trunk with clean speckle paint and gray plaid vinyl liner. Drivetrain Inside the fully restored engine bay is a 350ci engine in V8 form. This nicely painted orange/red block is now topped with an Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carburetor. Also, on the back is a rebuilt TH350 3-speed automatic transmission sending power back to a 10 bolt rear axle. All is very nicely done under this hood with a big shout to the chrome dress up on the valve covers and air cleaner lid along with the new aluminum radiator to keep the temperature in check. Undercarriage A slightly patined black/gray finish coats the frame which provides the foundation for the clean floor pans and rocker. Only very minor surface rust is noted on a few areas of the floors and suspension. Independent coil spring suspension is on the front and for the rear a 4-link system with coil springs provide the ride. Drum brakes are on all 4 corners and we see power steering with a new pump. Headers with dual Turbo mufflers make up the dual exhaust which can take you down the road safely and loudly. Drive-Ability A quick starter and on the test track it performed nicely with great acceleration and smooth shifting. All functions were working just swimmingly on our drive save for the clock, radio and heater blower all not functioning as designed. I enjoyed the top down cruise so much I took an extra 3 laps around the track just to soak in that muscle car sound and throaty idle. A good example of the 65 Malibu Chevelle convertible with a few upgrades on the performance front, very few flaws on the body and paint front, and nice chrome and brightwork. The interior is very clean and inviting and the engine is looking great and performs as such.
