This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu has a terrific hardtop style, upgraded interior, and plenty of vintage appeal. But what really makes this one special is the 430 horsepower stroker motor that lives under the hood.
The '69 Chevelle already looked fast standing still. After all, it has a sharply cut hardtop profile and a fastback-style rear. And being a true Malibu, the sweeping trim down the rockers give it a premium look. And this speedy style is only amplified further by upgrades like the big dual exhaust tips and the polished Weld Racing wheels with a wider rear set. The big chrome bumpers, updated blue paint, and full badging have the right look for a clean and complete classic that's also not afraid to have some fun on the Saturday night asphalt.
The interior is a nice mix of vintage and upgraded. It starts with the classic wide bench seats with a button-top detail. They could almost pass for stock, except the cloth inserts let you know they had a comfort upgrade. The carpeting, headliner, and dah all also have a nice presentation from a later investment. There are upgrades everyone can enjoy like the upgraded AM/FM stereo with aux input. And this was a factory A/C car (it will need servicing to function again, but any factory component comes with the sale.) Plus, upgrades like the auxiliary gauge trio and large column-mounted tach get you ready for something special under the hood.
The engine bay has a powerful look and the muscle to back it up. This is a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 from BluePrint engines. It comes with a bench dyno sheet of 430 horsepower, and the consignor states it was installed only about 2,500 miles ago. Plus, this has plenty of the right components, like a Spectre dual plenum air intake, Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, Summit air gap aluminum intake, cast Chevrolet valve covers, Pertronix Flamethrower distributor, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. And if you look at those pipes in the undercarriage photos, you'll also notice cutouts for those times when you really want to bring the thunder. This mighty V8 is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission that is said to have been installed around the same time as the new motor. So while those drag radials in the rear remind you of the kind of power his Malibu brings to the pavement, this is also a solid all-around built. That's why you have good driving features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs.
This Chevelle Malibu takes one of the most iconic hardtop muscle car looks of the era and combines with fresh blacktop-burning power. It makes for a terrific setup that you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
