For Sale: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle in Mesa, Arizona


Vehicle Description

This is the kind of cool cruising classic that most of us don't even think exists anymore. After all, most 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibus have been harvested to create raucous SS clones. Instead, this one has been given investment to stay the premium V8 cruiser that Chevy built it to be.

This is the kind of vehicle to wow people at every car show, because it's a straight and clean coupe with a level of vintage quality we just don't see any more. The factory-correct Champagne Gold has a great 1970s vibe, but it was resprayed later in life to make sure you still get a good shine. But what really grabs you on this one are the details. The gold vinyl roof signifies that this is a premium Malibu, and it harmonizes with the paint for a true vintage upper-class feeling. This car was built before new bumper laws. So those chrome kings not only shine bright, but also they are integrated so nicely into the overall design. And speaking of the design, when was the last time you've seen trim so complete??? That bright line that starts near the headlights and doesn't stop until it joins the roof is a masterful stroke as they highlight the Coke-bottle curves that makes this design so legendary.

The correct saddle tan interior has a similar golden glow to the paint and roof. It makes for a well-coordinated look inside and out that will have you leaving down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop. And the other reason why you'll want people to look inside is because of the quality of the interior. There has been the right mixture or preservation and restoration on the seats, carpeting, door panels, and headliner to make this feel like a 1970s time capsule. Even the Delco AM radio is still there for display. While this was the intermediate size car when new, today that means plenty of room to carry up to five family and friends with you in comfort. But even if it's just you driving, this Malibu won't disappoint. After all, they were built around the driver with everything from the horizon-like speedometer to the heat/defrost controls all directly in front of you.

Under the hood is a 307 cubic-inch V8. It looks great in the tidy engine bay with the bright block, shining valve covers, and matching air topper. It's not the numbers-matching unit, and in fact, we have the paperwork showing this had a dealer replacement unit done within the first few years. So you have a V8 that's proof of a distinct history. And what you'll really like is the eager cruising attitude of this car. The motor fires up readily as it inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor. And the Flowmaster mufflers on the dual exhaust make sure to give you a nice V8 tune that's never overbearing. Add in the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and wide BF Goodrich T/As, and you know this is the coupe that's ready to hit the road.

You get all the right paperwork with the sale, including the dealer invoice, title documentation, and original warranty card. This is a true V8 Malibu that revels in its premium classic style. Call today!!!
