We can't get enough of the 1960s Malibus!
While it’s not the most underrated muscle car from the era, the 1966 Chevrolet Malibu certainly doesn’t get enough credit for what it brings to the table. Examples like the one being offered through Seven Hill Motorcars remind us that the Malibus were built to be fierce road warriors, and still look amazing to this day.
Sporting a rare combination of Tropic Turquoise (LL) over black bucket seats and a “knee-knocker” tach, this former magazine car has been restored to the highest level of quality. The previous owners of the Chevy were extremely meticulous in their care of the car, and have about $20,000 in receipts showing maintenance and restoration work completed over the years.
Powering the Malibu is a completely rebuilt 327 cubic inch engine. Backing the engine is a Muncie four-speed manual transmission - this is a driver’s car for sure! The shifter on this car is very tight and the clutch is smooth. It also has smooth braking power to slow the street machine with ease.
