Show off your Malibu's!!!

Hey all,

Thought this would be a great chance for everyone to show off their non SS chevelles. I really fought the urge to make my car into a clone. Nothing wrong with it in my opinion but wanted to see what other directions you guys took your rides. I did however put in an SS dash and have SS stripes.... So lets see em!

383, 10.3:1, etec 200 heads, isky 280 mega, holley 770,
th350, 2600 stall,
12 bolt, 3.55 eaton posi
no time slip yet

Click on my user name then on view public profile. It doesn't have to say SS on it to be a nice car. It's like having a Wolf in Sheeps clothing.

Re: Show off your Malibu's!!!

Malibus rock and are cool cars period.
Had a 66 Malibu, loved it, same classic body styling,
now have a 66SS but each car has its own special vibe.
I always thought the ignition key location on the 66 was an awesome design idea.

Re: Show off your Malibu's!!!

Malibu Core… Parents bought the car new in '72. No SS badges, just rebuilt the way we wanted it to be. Pretty heavy Pro-Touring influence, but more of a cruiser.



Original block stroked to 383 (396hp/454lbft)
Detroit Speed suspension on all 4-corners
Modified 700R4
Column to console conversion
Tilt column conversion
Bench to bucket conversion
Wilwood disc conversions

Just a fun cruiser...

I've seen Jerry's car in person, somebody better jump on this one fast! Very nice and done right and a dry car too. East coaster take notice. He is asking a very reasonable price for it too.

My "Time Machine", sold and gone. Looking for another.
