I have that Cecil video,it's a great one.Neat to see how much our home track has changed over the years.I hauled a backhoe for Malcom Durham one time,back in the 80's,delivered it to his parents farm in North Carolina.Rode in his Corvette with him,when he took me to the lot to show me where it was.A real gentleman.

i dont know if that 65 was the Z16 he got, but Malcom did receive one of the 201 thru Hicks Chev
the car is still in Md, i know the guy that owns it, but its a shell now

when your credit cards are maxed, have the limits raised

Re: youtube 1965 Z16 SS396 Malcolm Durham Chevelle

the Z16 used the 300 tail lights and some special trim and it looks like some of those parts are still on Malcolms drag car but I'm not sure because some parts are missing.

There was another Z16 that was used as a drag car called "The Sizzler" and it ran a crazy Turbonique Rocket powered rear axle

here is a cool article on the guy who drove it and he mentions the Z16

That Chevelle in the video was Malcolm's street car. His drag car, Strip Blazer II/III is currently MIA.

The blue car at the beginning of the video is not a Z16. It has Malibu SS emblems on the quarter panels, and has chrome C-moldings on the rear around the taillights.

Still a neat video though!!
