CORRECT JG SUFFIX CODE 283, POWERGLIDE, ORIGINAL COLORS, NICELY DONE MALIBU!
Some cars can feel like time machines, and this Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu is absolutely 1964. But if you dig a bit deeper, there are few subtle upgrades that make all the difference.
The Chevelle is now a legendary name in the classic car community, and this is where it all started. 1964 was the first year Chevrolet produced a car to fill the void between their full size and compact models. Not all of these new intermediates were created equal, and so we love seeing something quite original-style in the up-market Malibu trim. Noticing the extra chrome in places like the lower rocker area and in the rear can identify Chevelle Malibus like this one. Plus, the Malibu name written on the side is an easy indicator, too, as long as the badging survives like it has here. The now-iconic 14-inch Rally wheel package is also a nice standout. But by far the best feature on the outside of the car is the paint. Daytona Blue is a great deep hue that looks modern, but it is actually the factory-correct color for this coupe. And this one has been treated to a professional respray to give it added luster. Starting to get the picture on this car? There have been some painstaking efforts to keep this Malibu looking original, but at the same time, it has a few tweaks to give it some added flash for the classic car world.
Inside, the restored front blue vinyl bench seat is something that would have been replaced on a restomod, but that wouldn't be right on this one. Instead, it is a near perfect time machine going back to the days when the entire family would have rather sat in the front than had the open road obscured from the back seat. Just like any good 1960's car, this sea of blue is given plenty of nice chrome touches on places like the door panels, dash, and steering wheel. All of this feels very original right down to the heater controls. But a second glance at the radio reveals it's an upgraded AM/FM unit with a digital tuner.
The 283 cubic-inch V8 is one of those great powerplants that help us celebrate the dawn of the small block era. Having the correct "JG" suffix code could mean this is the original motor that came in the car. This one looks particularly nice with the bright Chevy Orange block and the cursive script valve covers. Plus, all the new belts, hoses, and spark plug wires contribute to both the tidy appearance and reliability. The correct-style Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor lets this V8 inhale deeply, and the dual exhaust has that nice hint of rumble that tells you there's plenty of power in this Malibu. On the road, the Chevelle's legendary smooth ride combined with the Powerglide automatic transmission and the grip of modern BF Goodrich T/As makes this a fine cruising package.
This is the opportunity to own the beginning of a legend. It even comes with the right paperwork like the original bill of sale, maintenance receipts, restoration info, and owner's manual. A great classic offered at an affordable price is a deal you know is going to go quickly, so call today!
