From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

If you like your Malibus stock, well-preserved with a great historical pedigree, and with low original miles, perhaps this numbers matching, 1-owner 1971 Chevrolet Malibu is what youve been looking for. With a slick Cranberry Red paint job that will make it stand out in a crowded field, plus a bulletproof and original drivetrain, its the kind of car you wont be able to resist driving every chance you get. Just one glance at the photos will tell you this car is something special. Sure, the Malibu (and the Chevelle for that matter) is one of the best-looking muscle cars of all time, but with the cool paint and no stripes (something rarely seen these days where clones are a dime-a-dozen) on this one, it goes to an entirely different level. Not Torch Red, but not quite orange, either, it stands out like no red car ever could and the factory trim tag confirms that its the cars original color, which was resprayed in 2000. But you dont put paint like this on wavy bodywork, so a great deal of time was invested in getting the sheetmetal right before a drop of paint went on, although as a clean survivor, it was admittedly a pretty easy job. Then there are the added SS badges which give this car a bunch of attitude that fits it perfectly, especially with the clear headlights and turn signals to set them off. A period-correct grille and shiny trim, and nice original bumpers with bumper guards up front all turn this into a Malibu that people will be drawn to without even knowing why. The tan interior is all stock-spec that was replaced in 2000, which is a very good thing. Too many guys go crazy trying to update their cars, but nothing looks better than original gear in a vintage piece of muscle, and the seats, door panels, and carpets give this one a very clean look. There might be a few signs of age, but its evident everywhere you look that this car has been well-maintained from the beginning. Note the crack-free dash, the column shifter that manages the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission below, an original steering wheel, factory A/C and an original set of gauges and idiot lights ahead of the driver. The back seat looks virtually unused, and because of the Malibus penchant for Friday night cruising with all the windows down, it now carries a JVC AM/FM/Cassette radio in the dash for improved tunes. Theres also a nicely preserved trunk with its original mat and a full-sized spare tire and jack set. One of the most popular and dependable of Chevrolet engines in 1971 was the 350 cubic inch V8, and the one under this hood certainly doesnt disappoint. This is the original, numbers-matching engine with only 91,663 actual miles on the clock. Given the durability of these engines and the relatively low-stress build (compression ratios were starting to become mandated down in 71), you should have no worries about enjoying this one as intended. It looks quite good for its age and thanks to a restoration in the late 90s by the original, 1-owner family, it runs superbly. Newer parts throughout the engine bay confirm that this car has always been important to its owner (ask us about its detailed history and youll see thats true right away), and the power steering and power brakes make this Bu an absolute pleasure to drive. The believed-original TH350 3-speed automatic transmission doesnt mind the small blocks torque and a set of Flowmaster mufflers give it that racy tone youve been after. The chassis is also original and very nicely preserved and it rolls on proper SS wheels with new 255/70/14 Hankook radials all around. This exceptional, 1-owner. 91,633 actual mileage survivor that has never left the great state of Texas is a truly unique find. We rarely find vehicles of this survivor vintage, let alone with verifiable low mileage and a 1-family owned history that proves how loved this car has always been. Call today!
