New member with first "classic" car

Hi,
After many years of thinking about owning a classic car and now that I'm retired and have the time, my wife and I purchased a 67 Malibu a few weeks ago. We bought it from a classic car dealer and from what I can gather it was a body off restoration about 4 or 5 years ago, with a ZZ4 350 crate engine. It's finished in a beautiful red color over the perfectly straight body. It's had 2 or 3 owners. The most recent owner actually owned it twice and a couple months ago he had a FiTech EFI system installed, along with Flow Master dual exhaust, red line 17" tires on modern rally style wheels. Then he saw another car at the classic car dealer he wanted and traded in the Chevelle.

I'm not a mechanic so when I shopped for a classic car I knew I had to find one that was complete and didn't need a lot of work or tinkering.

I'm thinking of having Vintage Air installed along with a new factory look AM-FM, USB stereo.

Any comments or advice welcome and appreciated.

Welcome! There's many experts here(not me) to get help from. But you need to first provide pics or it didn't happen! LOL!

Is it possible to upload a photo? The only option I can find is to post a website photo link. Thanks in advance for advice.
