1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu in LaVergne Tennessee

 Vehicle Description
You dont see many 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibus this straight and clean. Better yet, this one comes complete with a straight 350, a handsome shade of Regal Red, and a very comfortable white interior. Chevy positioned these as the cars that could do anything, and even today this handsome hardtop will draw a lot of admirers everywhere it / br / A lot of these restored cars are running around with modern colors on them these days, but were big fans of the Regal Red this 65 wears. Perfect for the 1960s, its attention-grabbing and blends nicely with the raked stance and shiny rolling stock. The paint job isnt brand new but its holding up very well, offering a bright shine thats entirely appropriate on the red paint and there are good gaps throughout. There are a few blemishes, which isnt surprising since the car has been driven and enjoyed a bit since the resto (could you resist?), but absolutely nothing will stop you from getting in this car and hitting the local cruise nights. The low-profile looks of the Chevelle Malibu have aged well, and this one has a timeless grace that will never go out of fashion. Instead, this one exudes class and dignity, and with a muted rumble from its exhaust, looks every bit the part of a gentlemans express. Theres minimal trim, although what is in place is in great condition, with nice chrome bumpers, a straight grille, and a set of Malibu SS badges on the / br / The white vinyl interior is the classy choice with the bright red bodywork, presenting a clean, welcoming overall look. A bench seat makes this a big, comfortable car with room for everyone, and the seat upholstery is expertly restored with correct materials and patterns. New red carpets and fresh door panels look fantastic, giving the interior a finished feel thats very easy to live with. The original gauges are in very good shape and theyre surrounded by a bright instrument panel, although theyre monitoring only the basics of speed and fuel level so theyve been augmented with a set of auxiliary gauges attached below the dash and a column-mounted tachometer. The original AM radio is gone, replaced by a Pioneer AM/FM/CD head unit and the massive trunk is quite tidy with spatter finish paint, a reproduction mat and what appears to be the original bias-ply spare tire and jack / br / As a code 36 V8 Malibu, the 350 under the hood is a natural, although the original engine was probably a 283. Dressed like a late-model factory piece, there are no surprises here, just a great-running Chevy small block. Chrome valve covers shining bright, the Holley chrome air cleaner lives atop a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and Holley Street Dominator intake manifold, theres an HEI distributor to fire it, and the rumble from inside is simply fantastic. A chrome alternator, fresh plug wires, and long-tube headers ensure plenty of power without sacrificing its ability to be driven every day, and because its a relatively lightweight car, its surprisingly easy to handle. A 700R4 4-speed w/overdrive automatic transmission shifts cleanly and delivers bulletproof reliability, while the 12-bolt rear end doesnt mind the horsepower. Take a moment to examine the floors, which are very solid with only a light dusting of black paint that hides nothing so theres no chance of any surprises. A new Flowmaster-style exhaust system gives it a great V8 voice but doesnt betray this cars low-key demeanor, a happy medium that is seldom achieved. Four 15-inch Rally wheels with large beauty rings and center caps are a factory look that is perfect on this car, and the 215/70/15 redline radials offer vastly improved handling with a killer vintage / br / Just a tidy, no-nonsense Chevelle Malibu, albeit one with a great look and the right go-fast hardware. Forget the later A-bodies, this one has the right look and plenty of performance. Call today!br/br/
