A green-over-green classic with an ideal mix of vintage and modern upgrades.
This numbers-matching 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu is as sweet as they come. It’s currently up for sale through Streetside Classics for $32,995, and you can make an offer on the car here. While they say it's not easy being green, it is a whole lot of fun. That’ll prove especially true when people see this classic and subsequently turn green with jealousy. This green-on-green beauty boasts vibrant paint, original V8 power, and an attractive upgrade list that is sure to satisfy.
This Chevelle Malibu hardtop was born wearing Cottonwood Green. That is a cool ‘70s color and all, but this respray may be better. The hint of minty glow really accentuates this classic’s original attitude and gets it noticed everywhere it goes. It also looks really good with the other fun upgrades like the super scoop hood and black SS-style stripes. These nice additions go great with the vintage parts we all love on the Chevelle coupes, like the pillarless hardtop profile, fastback-style roof, and form-fitting chrome bumpers.
Most of the coupes have been switched over to an all-black interior over the years, so this factory-style dark green cabin feels like an extra special gem. It boasts the attractive appearance of a well-preserved classic and people will love to get a closer look at your local car show. This is the kind of classic that wants you to enjoy the drive too, and not just show it off. That's why you have the proper features like an upgraded Grant steering wheel, provisions for R134a air conditioning, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input. What’s more, the auxiliary gauge trio neatly installed under the dashboard gives you a clear view of what's going on under the hood during your drive.
