Hey there everyone. I am new to the muscle car world. This will be my first v8 car. Just purchased a 1965 malibu sedan from a family member. Clean car for what it is. I know its not a coupe but it was under 10k so it makes a great way to enter the classic car scene for me only being 28.
Currently working on adding power steering and hopefully disc brakes soon.

Currently has a sbc 406 making around 460 hp which sounds amazing. So far I am happy.

I got one of those, nice cars. I kept the 230 and added split exhaust and a 4 barrel intake and a 600R.

Welcome aboard. If it runs good I'd leave it alone.

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

it may need a rebuild. its been on for a long time and not sure if its been cleaned. so i need to pull it off and clean it and see what up with it. the car keeps stalling at idle.

Welcome to Team Chevelle.....

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