New Member with 69 Malibu.

Hello Chevelle fans.

Been lurking on the site for a while, figured it was about time to join.

Here's our 69 Malibu (I say "our", but it's really my wife's, I bought it for her because her dad used to have one in the 80s when she was a little kid). Besides where the vinyl top used to be, the paint is all original and the whole car is virtually rust free which is rare here in the PA Rust-belt (which makes me think it didn't spend most of it's life around here, we bought it from a flipper in OH who didn't know much about it's past). The car only has 55K original miles and besides the engine being changed from a /6 to a 350, it's all original inside and out. Hopefully that will change though, as we'd like to replace the bench with buckets and a console, swap in an LS, upgrade the brakes and suspension,... basically make it a great driver.

Regards,
Jason

Re: New Member with 69 Malibu.

Thanks guys; the body is a brownish green color, and the top is like a golden butternut.

Welcome Jason, to Team Chevelle.....

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.
