This 1969 Chevrolet Malibu Chevelle Restomod was built with both power and comfort in mind. You see it with the fuel-injected V8, upgraded rear end, overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, custom A/C interior, and more. And it's all wrapped around one of the most iconic hardtop designs ever forged at GM.
This is the kind of car that loves to get attention, and as you read the full info, you're going to see it was built to turn heads near and far. The full package starts with the paint. The red is an upgrade later in life, and a quality application means a vibrant style that attracts plenty of eyeballs. This car has a great sporty style with its full-length black stripe, large dual exhaust tips, and upgraded 17-inch Torq Thrust wheels. But it's now just out to be some muscle car hero. The way the black vinyl roof goes with the sports stripe is a great way to show this balances power and premium. And a sharp-looking grille and bright chrome continue the car's solid all-around style.
You'll love keeping all the windows down on this pillarless hardtop just so people can get a better look inside. This has a terrific modern update with the TMI racing-style seats that have the same red and black look as the exterior. The black center console with red stitching was even added to match. Plus, the back seat received attention, too, with a sporty perforated upholstery. Add in newer carpeting, door panels, and headliner, and this is quite an attractive total setup. It also has all the right features, like cold-blowing air conditioning, cup holders, an AM/FM radio w/Bluetooth hidden in the glovebox. That last one is your gateway to a full custom speaker system that includes MTX subwoofers in the trunk. And upgrades like the Grant sports steering wheel, power steering, and auxiliary gauge package let you know this is a driver's machine.
The engine bay loves to show off its upgraded nature with all those polished components radiating from within the dark and tidy inner walls. The fresh look is no accident. The 350 cubic-inch V8 was given a more recent professional rebuild. It now includes GM's TPI fuel injection, Bosch 24 lbs injectors, Holley EFI accessories, and headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. So you have both power and consistency. It's also supported by the right pieces like a serpentine belt system, an MSD distributor, newer wires, and a newer radiator w/electric fans. The four-speed automatic transmission gives you good ratios for power while also providing overdrive comfort. And that really goes to the center of this car's theme of being both powerful and quite useful. That's why you also have upgrades like four-wheel power disc brakes, grippy ZR-rated tires, and a four-link rear with a Panhard stabilizer and adjustable coilovers.
This is the kind of car that just makes you want to go out and spend a week retracing Route 66, and in fact, the consignor says he has made trips around that length. It's what happens when you have a build that was made to be enjoyed, and this one has that kind of solid investment. So if you're a muscle car lover and a driver, you know someone has already built your dream Chevelle. Time to make it your reality, call today!
