You're looking at a 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu with bright paint, plenty of great SS upgrades, A/C comfort for those hot days, and V8 power. Brand new engine with under 3500 miles! Three Year Warranty Remaining on Engine. Disk brakes, new dashboard, gauges, speakers and stereo system. New Cooper Cobra tires recently added not in picture but can send proof upon request.
ou might have noticed how the metallic blue paint has an even shine running across all the panels. That's because this one has truly terrific sheet metal with good uniform gaps. It makes for an instantly attractive total package. And speaking of attraction, those bright bumpers are like chrome kings, and we love how they were so nicely integrated into the car's design. While this one doesn't pretend to be a full SS car, we can't deny the appeal of the dual black stripes and 15-inch Mag wheels that are hallmarks of the Super Sports.
The black stripes on the outside are a nice preview of the deep black interior that awaits when you open the door. The condition of the seats, carpeting, headliner, and dash tell a story of thoughtful ownership where anything that wasn't up to standard was replaced. And to make this an even better place to spend some time there are features like an upgraded stereo, new gauges, and modern R134a air conditioning. It means you get to roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop and always remain as cool as you look.
Under the hood is BRAND NEW 350 cubic-inch V8. It was expertly installed, and there is even room left for a little flair if you wish to add some! The V8 inhales deeply thanks to an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority out of the new dual exhaust. This one feels good out on the road thanks to sway bars both front and rear (this also mean boxed trailing arms.) Plus, there's a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
When an iconic Chevelle coupe comes with all the features you want to be a great cruiser, and it's priced this nice, then you know you need to hurry to grab this deal.
the Porsche 914 weighted in at 2,072-2,194 pounds, allowing this to provide a sporty ride. The handling and braking also vastly benefited from this, taking a page from Lotus’ Colin Chapman’s playbook.
Mitch Perry did not make my list of favorite race drivers this past week. However, he is at the top of my list as my own race driver coach and friend, and we share very parallel youth years. Unlike me, he has gone on to become an accomplished racer and is one of LA’s most […]
The Pick of the Day is advertised as a 1966 Ford GT40 with an asking price of $124,999. Deal of the century for a GT40 Mk I “street-legal supercar”? Well, as it turns out, this car being offered by its private owner in Gardnerville, Nevada, is not one of the cars that Ford raced at […]
During this time spent indoors during shelter in place, I have been able to continue work on the MGB GT restoration. The latest project has been tackling the gearbox. For a bit of history: The 3-syncro overdrive-equipped gearbox in this car is the one in it when the car was delivered. The gearbox was rebuilt […]
The coronavirus pandemic is having a major impact on automotive events, many of which are being canceled or postponed. Here are the latest announcements: The North American International Auto Show in Detroit, formerly held in January but moved this year to June in an effort to reinvigorate the event, has been canceled because the host […]
While “speedster” is most-often associated with “bathtub” Porsche 356 roadsters of the 1950s, the term goes back to the Brass Era days of stripped-down sports cars, from pricey Mercer Raceabouts to the facsimiles hand-built from abundant Model T Fords. The Pick of the Day is a sharp-looking 1914 Ford Model T Speedster that appears to […]
In the video-game world of make-believe, where you can perform extreme driving exploits in pretty much whatever vehicle you choose, the car model most commonly found on virtual roads is… wait for it… the Volkswagen Beetle. The Volkswagen leads the list for the model that games makers most often place in their products, from Grand […]
At some point, this coronvirus impingement will end and we’ll want to be out and about, cruising the highways and byways with our convertible tops down. A dealership in Fort Wayne, Indiana, suggests the Pick of the Day, a 1966 Lincoln Continental convertible, would be an ideal choice for the open road. “This is a […]
Larry Edsall, founding editor of the ClassicCars.com Journal, and I enjoy a mutual passion not only for the written word, but for motor racing in its many incarnations. We have been around the sport for longer than either of us cares to admit – but we both got to experience a gilded age, Larry in […]
Before I ever wrote about cars, I wrote about sports, albeit including motorsports, and one of the first things a young sportswriter learns, at least back when I was learning, is “there’s no cheering in the press box.” Your press pass entitled you to the best seat in the stadium or arena or whatever playing […]
