This 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Restomod has a custom style on
the outside, feels comfortable and vintage inside, and has an
upgraded V8 heart. It makes for an iconic hardtop that knows how to
be distinct and fun.
This car goes for a sleek and premium look rather than going the
route of a Super Sport clone. The factory gold paint was traded
with a more modern electric-like blue that instantly makes an
impression. And those airbrushed flames coming off the fender are
like a powerful shockwave. So when you take this hardtop out for a
sunny Sunday drive, it has an extra radiance and plenty for people
to look at as the sunlight dances across the smooth finish. There
are some signs of responsible enjoyment because after all, this is
out to be a driver's classic. But you can really tell there's an
overall quality of the fundamentals in the details like the bright
chrome bumpers, complete trim, clean lines, and doors that close
solid. And those crystal clear headlights work with the clean
grille to put a brighter face forward. Plus, the wide dual exhaust
tips and those American Torq thrust wheels with 18/20-inch
front/rear stagger are instant indicators of the power within.
Black interiors always look great on these Chevelle hardtops. It's
the factory-correct color, but you can tell there have been good
investments mixed with good care to retain a deep and dark
appearance on the seats, door panels, headliner, and carpeting. We
love a good hardtop Chevelle for the way it can cruise all day in
comfort. This one continues that tradition with a solid driver's
package. It includes bucket seats, a center console in-between, a
classic horseshoe shifter, and new AutoMeter auxiliary readouts for
oil, volts, and temp.
Filling the engine bay is a 5.3L LM7 LS-based V8 motor. This may be
a younger GM powerhouse, but they went old-school muscle car with
the upgrades on this one. So it has a Holley dual-feed four-barrel
carburetor, an Edelbrock high-rise intake, and Dougs headers
feeding the dual exhaust. You'll even spot good supporting
components, like the modern coil packs and an MSD electronic
ignition. It's a strong runner, and the three-speed automatic
transmission keeps it a good all-around cruiser. Plus, power
steering, power brakes, front discs, and grippy ZR-rated tires make
for a good anytime driver.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the iconic Chevelle coupe
that looks distinct and has a uniquely modern upgrade in power.
That makes it a stand-out classic that you need to get your hands
on right now. Call today!!!
