Vehicle Description

Gateway classic cars of Nashville is proud to digitally present this 1966 Chevrolet Malibu. Long and lean, this 1966 Malibu is painted Barcelona red this shade of red has been "borrowed" from an import that has toy as part of its name. The paint clings to this car like a prom dress, accentuating the body lines of this beauty and showing off every curve. Inside, outside, under the hood heck even the truck on this car looks great. The interior is Black Vinyl buckets with center console, while the bench seat in the back has room for 3. To complete the retro look on this car you have 5 star chrome rims that are the perfect look and add just the right amount of chrome. Under the hood do not let the badges fool you, while there is 396 on the chrome valve covers and air cleaner lid as well as the front fenders what really is perched between the fenders is a .030 454 cubic inch Rat! Now I do not know what the internals of this engine are all about but my guess from the exhaust note is at least 10.5 compression pistons so dimple rods or h beams and with this set up a forged crank is to be expected. What I can see is Hedman� long tube Headers, Summit� intake, Holley� 4 barrel with vacuum secondaries and a H.E.I. distributor. Lets just say that a small stab at the loud pedal thrust you back into the seat and makes it difficult to turn the stereo volume up. What else would you place behind this torque monster than a turbo hydomatic 400 3 speed automatic transmission. I guess I could have just said turbo 400. The 12 bolt rear axle housing has a posi carrier and 3.55 ring and pinion and of course with all this go, go, go you need better whoa than drum brakes, so with this car you have disc on all 4 corners! This car brings back memories, I have several memories of a car very close to this one and I bet you do too. Options for this 1966 Malibu include: AM/FM radio, power steering and brakes, Tilt steering wheel, Seat belts, Radial tires wrapped around aluminum alloy rims.
