CORRECT CODE 51 DUSK BLUE, 307 V8, PS, PB, NICE CONVERTIBLE, PRICED RIGHT
There's not a lot of over-hyped prose on this lovely 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu convertible. In fact, it's one of the most honest cars we've seen recently: it's stock. No fake SS upgrades, no big bock swap, and finished in its original color combination, this is simply a great old ragtop with no stories.
There were a lot of blues on the menu in 1969, with this car wearing a particularly handsome coat of code 51 Dusk Blue. Dark enough to look substantial, it looks fantastic on the A-body sheetmetal. Drive it to work on nice days and look forward to your drive home in the evening, take it to dinner on Friday night and don't worry about gawkers in the parking lot, and spend Sunday cleaning it up so you can do it all over again next week. It worked in 1969 and it works even better today. The paint shines up nicely, the gaps are decent all around, and like I said, there aren't any fake stripes or badges getting in the way of what really is a nice car. The bumpers were bright chrome that looks great and works well with the shiny stainless trim on the rest of the car.
The factory bench seat remains in the cockpit, complete with fresh blue seat covers in the original pattern. It also received matching door panels and fresh carpets with the proper weave, so it feels great to slide behind the wheel. All the gauges are original and showing their age just a bit, but again that's all part of this car's charm. The factory AM radio still delivers the entertainment, but I suspect you won't need it very often with a rumbling V8 providing most of the soundtrack. It also includes power steering and brakes, making it an easy, comfortable cruiser for any driver and one that you don't have to think twice about getting in and hitting the road. There's a new white power top with glass rear window, and the trunk is finished in correct spatter paint and comes with lots of room for luggage on long road trips.
Although the badges say '350,' the engine is actually a nice-running 307. Recently detailed under the hood, it proudly wears its stock air cleaner assembly and bright Chevy Orange paint on the block, heads, and tinwork. No big aftermarket carburetors and it still uses the stock cast iron exhaust manifolds to feed a great-sounding dual exhaust system, it's just a nice-running V8 that gets the job done. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a 10-bolt rear end deliver reliable performance without any fussing and it's quite clean underneath, although it has not been given a frame-off restoration. Classic Rally wheels have been fitted and wear 235/60/15 Cooper radials.
For the money, this is a great V8-powered ragtop that has celebrity status everywhere it goes. Forget high-dollar clones and even higher-dollar big block SS models, all you really need is a top that goes down, a burbling V8 exhaust note, and lots of road ahead of you. Call today!
