This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu has a terrific vintage style
with just the right amount of subtle upgrades mixed in to make it
extra fun. So it's a quite vintage package that also has some
unique touches you'll love.
The factory-correct Lemowood Yellow is a great color for a premium
1960s machine. The Malibu had terrific lines for '66 with a
well-creased front end that curved around to continue down the full
length of the car. And the flying buttress coming off the
pillarless hardtop seemed almost European-inspired. So when a
design is this special, it's great to have a body that's so
straight. This coupe is proudly a premium Malibu, but there's also
some Super Sport touches added into the mix. The sporty hood vents
and ribbed rockers are borrowed from the SS line. Plus, we
especially like the wheel package. It's borrowed from
later-generation Malibus, and the black inserts gives you a preview
of the interior.
Inside there has been a solid investment in the seats, door panels,
carpeting, headliner, and dash to give this a crisp black
presentation. An interior this nice means it's easy to share your
classic coupe experience with family and friends. The radio has
even been upgraded to retro-style AM/FM digital tuner to upgrade
the driving music without changing the overall vintage atmosphere.
In fact, this coupe is all about the classic atmosphere. So the
vintage thin steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and there's
nothing quite like rolling down all the windows to get the breeze
flowing through this pillarless hardtop.
Under the hood is a period-correct 283 cubic-inch V8. It keeps a
very vintage look with the dark inner walls funneling your
attention to the bright orange block in the middle. And there are
even nice details, like the Chevrolet-script valve covers and
classic air topper. But you'll also spot the right upgrade, like
the distributor, that help keep this a strong-running package. The
V8 fires up readily and runs smoothly, so it's a good companion for
the road. That's why you also have nice driving features, like
power steering, a Powerglide automatic transmission, and wide BF
Goodrich T/A tires.
This is the crisp-looking icon that ready to hit the road today. So
don't miss this deal.
