1969 Chevrolet Malibu Chevelle
The storied Chevelle is one of those timeless designs that looks
good no matter how it's built. Stock, modified, race, pro-touring,
whatever; the clean lines and balanced stance on these tough
classics create a confident swagger that's universally admired.
That means, if you're looking to ride in style, you really can't go
wrong with a Chevrolet A-Body. And when you factor in this ride's
big block drivetrain, tastefully restored interior and first rate,
all-American sheet metal, you get the picturesque profile of an
incredible muscle car!
For consignment, a Chevrolet Chevelle SS clone from 1969. A mostly
original looking car for the exterior but has a snappy engine under
the hood, fuel injection, disc brakes, and there are now tubular A
arms along with new shocks to provide the ride. A full build book
with receipts, instructions and photos is included with this
professionally done build.
A side view has this car setup with a very neutral stance, giving
the car a very racy look. To add to the effect, it is bathed in a
nearly flawless coating of red paint which has also been ceramic
coated. Most of the side trimmings have been left off, and the only
ones still visible are the wheel well highlight moldings and
trimmings around the nicely complimenting black vinyl top. A nicely
curving rear glass melts seamlessly into the trunk lid and moves to
the back of the car where angled inward tail lighting is seen on
each corner. Chromed bumpers and window trimmings are looking nice
and shiny, and it is badged with modern SS badging on the fenders,
blacked out tail panel and the new chrome highlighted egg crate
grille. A chin spoiler resides below the front bumper adding to the
racy look. Hovering above the grille and new halo headlights we
also note a cowl induction style hood has been added, while not
factory correct, it adds a lean and mean look to the long front
end. Lightly tinted polished 17 and 15-inch American Racing Torque
Thrust wheels are wrapped in 235/50ZR17's in front, and 275/60R15's
on back for that extra smokkin'.
Nicely straight black vinyl covered door panels are on the inside
of the 2 doors, along with some shiny cranks and door actuators.
Thin strips of chrome delineate different panels and an SS396 badge
is near the center of the sill. Moving inside we see split bench
seating in the front and a full bench in the rear. The seats are
also covered in black vinyl and have some smooth bolsters on the
seat and back and shallow tuck and rolls inserts. Headrests are
present as well on these chairs and in the back, a bench seat is
stretching from side to side. All this seating is floating in a sea
of clean, fade free black carpeting. The original dash styling has
been retained but now houses a bevy of indigo backlit Dakota gauges
has an added digital readout for the clock, odometer and
temperature gauge. A FAST fuel injection controller hangs from the
top of the dash with a central tachometer and auxiliary gauges
circling around like vultures to carrion. A snazzy billet style
rally style steering wheel is fronting this updated dash. In
addition, an aftermarket digital AM/FM sound system is installed
into the original niche where the radio from the factory resided.
Above a black headline shows a few wrinkles, and a Junsun
camera/navigation equipped rear view mirror hangs proudly.
As we lift the hood we can unequivocally say "Toto we are not in
Kansas Anymore!". Here we see a large 402ci V8 stuffed into the
engine bay that has been fitted with forged pistons and an
Edelbrock .560i/.573e lift camshaft. It has Edelbrock Performer
aluminum heads, 1.7 ratio roller rockers, FAST EFI and a full FAST
ignition system including a FAST EFI 2.0 ignition module. A new
R134a A/C system is on to keep the passengers cool. A TH350 3-speed
transmission in automatic format is bolted on the back and a12-bolt
rear with Positraction and 3.55 gears is now on. The engine is a
very nice presentation with a concerto of cast aluminum, polished
valve coverings, a chrome master cylinder, and it's making use of
all braided stainless-steel hoses, and high output wiring. Lookin'
good under this hood.
A coating of black covers the undercarriage. Floor pans, rockers,
and suspension parts are involved and barely any surface rust is
noted. Wilwood power disc brakes are on the front and in the rear,
we have power drum brakes. All new stainless-steel lines have been
added for the brake system. For the suspension we note an
independent front coil spring arrangement with tubular control arms
and in the rear we see a 4 link with a UMI lift bar and more coil
springs. We note the springs are Moroso trick racing springs and
all new shocks are seen. There is a new fuel tank and new EFI fuel
pump and handling the removal of spent fossils are Hooker Super
Comp headers and a pair of Flowmaster mufflers on the 3" dual
A quick fire up, and on the test track is performed just
swimmingly. Plenty of power from that "custom engine", ability to
stop on a dime for the big disc brakes now on front, and the
interior is comfy with the factory bench seats in front. A good
driver and excellent cruiser that likes to lift the front end a bit
when one gets a bit goosey with their boot!
A nice example of the Chevrolet Malibu Chevelle. Some badging gives
it an identity crisis, but to be clear it's a Malibu Chevelle with
a built 402ci V8, some new suspension, and tubular A arms. Paint is
very nice, and the red is just a delicious choice for this
