For Sale: 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu is a fun hardtop. It keeps the upper-class Malibu image while also delivering a big power and rumble. There are even nice cruising features like an overdrive transmission and cold-blowing A/C. So it makes for the kind of classic coupe that loves to be driven and get noticed everywhere.


We like a car of this caliber. It has upgraded power, and so it makes sure we can all see that in its style. But it doesn't get too brazen about it. So rather than go the route of a Super Sport tribute, this one revels in the image of a premium Malibu. So there's a smooth hood with crisp lines rather than a big cowl, and it uses more chrome rather than blackout intimidation. This is not trying to go incognito, but the power car upgrades seem to be more purposeful. For example, it has nice upgrades like the American Racing Torq Thrust D wheels so that you can fit proper tires to handle the extra power. This harmony of speed and sophistication comes together nicely on the paint. After all, red is a sporty color, but this later update also has a nice shine to show off details like the flying buttress C-pillars. You'd likely give the hood paint a little love if you're looking to have a show car, but this one already impresses in the way it delivers a powerful hardtop style while still being sleek and sophisticated.


The white interior is another noticeable touch that gives this car distinction. The seats, door panels, and headliner look bright, but nothing ever takes away from the overall feeling of a car focused on being a fun driver. In fact, you have nice extras like cold-blowing air conditioning and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input. So it makes for the kind of classic coupe where you can pile in plenty of family and friends across the wide bench seats, and they'll feel comfortable on an ice cream run. And this Malibu is also fun for driving solo. The upgraded sports steering wheel, large AutoMeter auxiliary readouts, and B&M ratchet shifter are there to make you the priority in this coupe.


Under the hood is a stout-looking small block. The cast valve covers, steel braided lines, hi-temp plug wires, and aluminum radiator with twin electric fans is all part of a solid driver's package. At its heart is a 350 cubic-inch V8. We're even told this is a 383ci engine, and while that's unverified, it certainly has the powerful feel of a stroker motor. Plus, there are plenty of the right power upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, a polished aluminum intake, and long tube headers. The dual exhaust has a nice rumble, and there are even cutouts any time you really want to bring the thunder. This is a powerful package, but it also likes being a good all-around driver. So you have an upgraded 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission that is known for both its strong construction and overdrive comfort. And power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As come together for a better cruiser.


This is the powerful Chevelle that also likes to keep a touch of Malibu premium. It makes for a terrific hardtop you need to get in your garage. Call today!!!
