This 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu offers the best of both worlds.
The correct-colors and numbers-matching V8 is enhanced with a
modern shine, an awesome stance, and performance upgrades. Even the
interior strikes a nice balance with classic elements and a
thumping custom stereo system. It all makes for an upgraded classic
that's both easy to drive and memorable everywhere it goes.
The trim tag tells us this was born a Cranberry Red coupe, but you
can also see that there have been plenty of investments along the
way that make it far from stock. Some add to the classic feeling
like the professional respray of the red later in life. They also
painted SS stripes on top before it all gets a modern clearcoat
finish. And there are more great Super Sport upgrades, like the
cowl hood, hood pins, SS badging, and large dual exhaust tips. But
what this one also has are well-integrated modern upgrades. The
headlights have the classic round look, but they are crystal clear
units with a multi-color LED surround. And those Forgiato wheels
are done in black to go with the racing stripes. Of course, their
20/22 inch front/rear setup gives this a modern and aggressive
stance. It's all done on a sharp-looking coupe to give the overall
impression of an icon that's also quite individual.
The black accents of the exterior also get you ready for the
factory-correct black interior. This has the classic look with
premium Malibu door panels, a pillarless hardtop profile, and two
wide bench seats for family and friends to spread out. But
Chevelles like this are really centered around the driver. The
clean dash was designed to put everything within easy reach, and
now there are plenty of modern extras. The driving experience is
upgraded with AutoMeter auxiliary gauges, a large tach, and a cool
Forgiato steering wheel that matches the exterior alloys. The
stereo is an upgraded Kenwood AM/FM/CD with Bluetooth. It's your
gateway to a full Rockford Fosgate speaker system featuring dual
amplifiers, four 6x9s in the rear deck, and three Punch 12-inch
subwoofers in a custom trunk enclosure.
It's nice to have the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch small block
under the hood. But it's even better when it has been upgraded for
both presentation and performance. The shining air grabber,
Chevrolet valve covers, bold block, and tidy wires look great.
Beyond this you'll start to spot upgrades like the Edelbrock
intake, four-barrel carburetor, Mallory ignition, and headers that
feed a rumbling H-pipe dual exhaust. You'll even spot newer
components, like the alternator, battery, and brake booster. It
shows an investment in quality and performance that keeps this a
strong runner. The three-speed automatic is both stout and smooth
as it sends the power to a 12-bolt rear end. Add in power steering,
power brakes, front discs, and modern grippy ZR-rated tires, and
this is a coupe that's built to cruise.
This is a great mix of classic style with plenty of street-wise
attitude. It makes for an awesome custom Chevelle that you need to
get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
