HIGHLY DOCUMENTED, RESTORED BACK TO ORIGINAL, #'S MATCH 307CI, BUILD SHEET!
This is that kind of cool cruising classic that most of us don't even think exists anymore. After all, most 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibus have been harvested to create raucous SS clones. Instead, this one was loving restored back to factory fresh condition (with the all the paperwork to prove it) to be the premium V8 cruiser that Chevy built it to be.
This is the kind of vehicle to wow people at every car show, because it has a level of factory-correct quality we just don't see anymore. This is a car that the consignor says he's known all his life, and so the restoration was like his chance at the girl next door. The Forest Green paint is one of those colors that feels like a signpost from the 70s, and it has been applied with the kind of care that gives it that perfect sunny-day cruiser luster. But what really grabs you on this one are the details, and you can verify them all thanks to the included window sticker. The dark green vinyl roof signifies that this is a premium Malibu, and it's in just as nice condition as the paint. This car was built before new bumper laws, and so those chrome kings not only shine bright, but also they are integrated so nicely into the overall design. And speaking of the design, when was the last time you've seen trim so complete??? That bright line that starts near the headlights and doesn't stop until it joins the roof is a masterful stroke as they highlight the Coke-bottle curves that makes this sheetmetal so legendary. This coupe is truly a celebration of items you rarely see anymore, right down to the Chevrolet Motor Division factory wheel covers.
The festival of green continues inside. In fact, we love how the dark green on the seats so nicely matches the vinyl roof. This car really does feel like a 1970s time capsule with fresh carpets, intricate trim on the door panels, and even the AM radio is still cranking out tunes. While this was the intermediate size car when new, today that means plenty of room to carry up to five family and friends with you in plenty of comfort. But even if it's just you driving, this Malibu won't disappoint. After all there were built around the driver with everything from the horizon-like speedometer to the heat/defrost controls all directly in front of you.
And with a car that has been so well restored to factory standards, it should be no surprise that the numbers-matching original V8 is still under the hood. This 307 cubic-inch small block looks fantastically restored. So not only do you get the bold Chevy orange block radiating from inside the dark engine bay, but also all the details are correct, right down to the factory-style decals. In fact, the consigner believes the exceptionally low 12,348 miles are actual to the car. While there is no supporting documentation, you'll still be glad to know this was rebuilt within the last few years to keep the V8 at its optimal running performance. So the car that look nearly showroom fresh also fires up and runs so smoothly that you feel like you just left the Chevy dealer. Add in the Powerglide automatic transmission and power steering, and this time capsule of a classic remains a great cruiser.
