This 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS has the great hardtop look
of a true icon. As you dig deeper, you'll see a proper small block
heart upgraded to fuel injection. It makes for the real-deal Super
Sport classic with a bit more everyday appeal.
The Chevelle's design was still fresh on the scene in '65. It
represented the new edge style of the 1960s, especially the flared
rear quarter panels that are one of the car's defining features.
And Chevelle fans know that Malibu Super Sport was the top of the
trim Chevelle with cleaner body lines. The Danube Blue paint is
great to see because it's factory-correct for this coupe, and at
the same time, this classic hue has a modern appeal. As you look
over the whole hardtop, there's a sense this car is meant to be
enjoyed. It's complete, right down to the rocker trim, and yet
nothing is too fancy that will make you nervous to drive it. And
the upgraded wheels give you some nice shine while also letting you
fit modern performance tires.
The sea of blue continues inside with the full factory-correct
color combo. The two-tone seats, clean door panels, smooth dash,
and darker carpet (harder to show dirt) makes for a vintage and
thoughtful package. Bucket seats with a center console in-between
are a staple of these SS cars. So this one really has a correct and
classic look. But because this is done to be a driver's car, you
also have the right well-placed easy cruiser upgrades, like the
tinted windows and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner.
This coupe was born in the era when Chevy's small block V8 was just
finding its performance upgrade roots. And while you could get some
nice upgrades for them back then, it never approached what's on
this one today. The 283 cubic-inch V8 is now topped with a FiTech
fuel injection system and Edelbrock intake. It creates a solid
powerhouse that start easily, idles smoothly, and makes a nice tune
out of the dual exhaust. And as a true driver's classic, this one
was built to cruise with features like a Powerglide automatic
transmission, power steering, and the grip of modern ZR-rated
This is a nice classic that even comes complete with the original
bill of sale and the replaced carbureted fuel system. This is the
ideal real SS that loves to hit the road. So if you want a classic
to drive, you can't let this one slip away. Call now!
