For Sale: 1972 Chevrolet Malibu in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1972 Chevrolet Malibu - 350ci V8 - Automatic Transmission - Red Over Black Interior - Rallye Wheels - 69k Miles (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1972 Malibu on a website other than our main website, it's possible you haven't seen all of this vehicles information. To see all the photos, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, please go to our main website: GKM dot com) The Malibu began as a trim-level of the Chevrolet Chevelle, named after the coastal community of Malibu, California. The Concours luxury option for Malibu sedans and coupes included upgraded cloth or vinyl bench seats, carpeted lower door panels, woodgrain trim on dash and door panels, over the base model. These finer luxury details have made this model of the Chevelle a perfect pallet for Day 2 upgrades for hot rodders wanting to build a performance car but could not afford higher level optioned SS Chevelle and not to mention dodge the insurance rates that came with the more heavy-handed big block Super Sport cars. It also made these cars a perfect disguise for a street sleeper. Lacking the SS lettering these cars were a perfect way to build a wolf in sheep's clothing. These transformations continue today with muscle car enthusiasts wanting the performance of a SS, but with rising prices on these cars they are more affordable way to have SS performance you can drive rather than stash away too afraid to drive or modify due to the investment in a high dollar collectible. The is 1972 Chevrolet Malibu featured here is a perfect example of this type of car that has been subtly modified and upgraded from its original intent by General Motors. It's a striking car on its own merits with the red on black color combination. The red finish on this car pops with a rich luster and the body work is smooth and presents very well. The underbody and the floor of this car is solid with no rust through supporting this cosmetic restoration was based on a clean and overall rust-free base. The SS cowl induction hood is a nice upgrade along with the Corvette Rally wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich T/A Radials and really presents a menacing stance that looks fast just sitting still. Inside the black interior is clean featuring fresh carpet and the upholstery is free of any rips, tears or seam pulls. Summit Racing gauges help monitor the engine vitals which is really the only clue inside the vehicles cabin that this Malibu has a little more going on under the hood. The dash pad is free of any cracks and the lower-level Malibu sweeping 120 mph speedometer gauge (higher optioned Chevelles have the round gauge packages.) reads 69,000 miles. With column shifted automatic and bench seat, this car appears pretty sedate, perfect for just cruising with your significant other snuggled up to you in the middle position of the seat. That is until you open the hood. Under the hood sits a classically modified 350 small block V8. An Edelbrock EPS dual plane aluminum intake is topped with an Edelbrock Performer intake. This engine compartment presents well and is detailed with chrome valve covers and open element air cleaner. The exhaust flows through headers into a 2.5 pipes and Magnaflow chamber exhaust and tips that dump just before the differential giving this Chevy a nice rumble at idle. Further upgrades include aluminum radiator and electric cooling fans. The suspension is unrestored but is well maintained, featuring power steering and four-wheel drum brakes. This a great car to enjoy cruising, driving to the car shows and in general participating in automotive enthusiast events.
