Classic Car Overview

This 1978 Chevrolet Malibu LT1 Restomod is a fine representative of its niche. It harbors a strong running engine under its hood and has been carefully configured to provide a great experience behind the wheel, an experience that comes along with a level of uncomplaining reliability thats downright rare in most modified cars. Its been brought to top form both inside and out and would be a nice centerpiece of any enthusiasts garage. With its burgundy exterior having been recently resprayed in an era-appropriate shade of burgundy, this Chevy classic now boasts undeniably show-quality curb appeal. Its a got a thoroughly well-planned appearance - understated, with just the slightest of hints that its no ordinary late 70s cruiser. Come closer and take a lap around - youll be firmly convinced that the body alignment is in good order - the Malibus of this era feature color-matched trim that run most of their body length and the ones on display here are impressively level as they transition from fender to door to rear quarter panel. Tight, uniform gaps surround the doors, hood and deck lid, and every piece of chrome thats on board here is showing in top form. This Malibus stance hasnt veered far from its original configuration, making for a dependably smooth ride with no concerns about ground clearance during the course of everyday driving. The burgundy interior provides just the right vantage point from which to take full advantage of this tastefully configured Chevys abilities. To say that this interior has been refurbished doesnt quite tell the whole story - its essentially new and as you glance around inside the doors, youll see plenty of fresh components blended into the mix. The two rows of bench seating carry plenty of padding for comfort and show essentially no signs of wear over their cloth surfaces as they loom over matching carpet in the same showroom condition. Theyre bracketed by door panels that also appear to have been recently installed and wear an assortment of fresh hardware. The dash area is in fine condition - its protected by contrasting black fabric that hides no cracks below and the updated gauges in the instrument cluster, lifted from a Monte Carlo - a GM stablemate - are clear and readable and in good working order. The added T-type steering column provides an effective distinguishing touch and an AM/FM/CD stereo has been added to provide your audio soundtrack while on the road. Well chosen mechanical components combine with professional installation to make this Chevy as road ready as a classic can be. Its powered by an electronically fuel injected 350 cubic inch LT1 engine that represents a line of powerplants that have been entrusted with vigorously propelling countless GM products over the years. Its in great form in this case, firing up promptly, pulling strong and combining with a 4-speed automatic 4L60e transmission that shifts precisely. The drivetrain is rounded out by a 3.42 rear end that provides spirited off the line performance while teaming with the transmissions overdrive gear for easy highway cruising. A complete set of new suspension bushings have been installed, so there will be no squeaking as this classic patrols the asphalt on its set of 15 wagon-style wheels wrapped with BF Goodrich T/A radials, while power steering and power brakes that include discs up front bring easy navigation and dependable stops. Below, the undercarriage looks unusually clean for a car hailing from this era. A fresh, authentic appearance combines with outstanding power and reassuring dependability to make this 1978 Chevrolet Malibu LT1 Restomod a very compelling classic. Call today!
