This 1969 Chevrolet Malibu Chevelle was built to be better at show
and go. After all, we all love the look of these hardtops in a
glossy black, but this one also has a powerful crate V8, a terrific
sound, and an overdrive transmission to really make it a desirable
These Chevelles are an icon. The wide grille with quad headlights,
pillarless hardtop profile, and a fastback style rear all come
together to make one of the most sought-after classics around. This
one gets even more desirable because it was upgraded to a
nice-looking black. The finish has a few years on it, but it
retains the kind of gloss that tells you this was a quality
application that has been treated with care. The high contrast
white dual racing stripes on top give this one a touch of SS-style
flair. The lowered stance from CPP drop spindles continues this
sporty attitude. And as you look over the rest of this coupe,
you'll find that it earns this performance feeling.
The black interior was also an upgrade later in life, and so you
have a clean look and the ultra-desirable blackout style. There are
two wide rows of bench seats, and they look complete right down to
the button-top seatbacks. So you can easily share this one with
family and friends. There are the right upgrades for the kind of
car you want to drive. The Grant sports steering wheel feels grippy
in your hands, the auxiliary gauge trio keeps you fully informed,
and the AM/FM/CD stereo with 6x9 speakers give you better driving
Under the hood is a pretty hot small block. It's a 350 cubic-inch
crate V8. These are known for being powerful right out of the box,
and this one inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor,
and it exhales with added authority and power as Hedman long tube
headers feed the dual exhaust. And a nice set of Flowmaster Super
44 mufflers make sure you've got a high-octane tune. So you've got
the kind of power and rumble you'd get from a big block car in a
lighter small block package. You even have strong SS-style
upgrades, like the boxed rear trailing arms (with Edelbrock
adjustable uppers) and a rear sway bar. There's also an Eaton
Positraction rear end with 3.73 Richmond gears. This has nice
anytime driving features power steering, power brakes, and upgraded
CPP front discs. Plus, the upgrade to a 700R4 four-speed automatic
transmission w/overdrive makes this nice to drive near or far.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, service manuals,
and build receipts. This is a well-done and powerful Chevelle that
was built to be enjoyed. So if you love driving your icons, call
