Here is a Chevelle you don't see anymore. The Chevrolet Malibu is a mid-size car manufactured and marketed by Chevrolet from 1964 to 1983 and again added to lineup in 1997. The Malibu began as a trim-level of the Chevrolet Chevelle.The automobile marketplace was changing significantly during the early 1960s and became highly competitive in the smaller-sized car segments. Chevrolet responded with the Chevelle based on a new A platform design. Riding on a 115- inch wheelbase (five inches longer than that of the Chevy Il and four inches shorter than the full-size cars), the new Chevelle was - similar in size, simplicity, and concept to the standard-sized 1955-1957 Chevrolet models. The Chevelle was the U.S.auto industry's only all-new car for 1964.The first Malibu was a top-line subseries of the mid-sized Chevrolet Chevelle from 1964 to 1972.

Just over 2% of the total run came out of the factory doors as a Malibu Convertible.This car you are seeing was built in GM's Baltimore, Maryland Assembly plant.

The $162 Super Sport package was available on the upscale Malibu two-door hardtop and convertible models; the option added special exterior brightwork with SS emblems and the 14- inch full-disc wheel covers from the Impala SS. Inside, the vinyl bucket-seat interior featured a floor console for models equipped with the optional Muncie aluminum four-speed-manual or Powerglide two-speed automatic instead of the standard three-speed manual.
