For Sale: 1965 Chevrolet Malibu in Santa Barbara, California

$17,500 (OBO)

Vehicle Description


A rare 4 speed on the floor convertible. I have had the car for 30 years and sadly am not able to restore it and must sell. It needs a new battery and brakes. It has been stored under cover for 5 years. New brakes, pads& shoes were purchased prior to storage and are in the trunk. The engine is NOT the original. It has a Turbo-fire Corvette engine that only has a few miles on it and runs great with lots of muscle. The top and rear zipper window were replaced 10 years ago and the tires only have a few hundred miles on them. I have all 4 stock hubcaps (not pictured due to anticipatory brake job so they are in the trunk too.) The only reason it is not running is because the kill switch relay has been dis-assembled and a new battery is needed to fire it back up again. I know what this car is worth fully restored, therefore I am asking a fair price at $18,500. Serious inquiries only PLEASE! No PayPal scams or other monkey business. If you understand what this car is and have the cash, email me through this site and I will respond within 24hrs. I can arrange for a viewing by appointment only. Included with sale is free towing to your location within 100 miles of SB, CA. The car and I are featured in the early 90's painting by popular plein air landscape artist Tom DeWalt at Refugio Beach so it carries some California nostalgia with it. Thank you for your honest inquiry! Update: COWL TAG (picture added!): "ST 05A. 921. 2 TR 65. 13867 BAL3437 792 01 397 0010" Engine casting says "Z4" on R/F pad (no vin). CARB 17057504. Street dominator intake manifold. Needs trunk pan & new muffler. MAKE ME A SOLID OFFER and LET's GET HER GOING!
