Re: another 1965 malibu ss car worth

The TH350 is a non-issue. They are great transmissions and will EASILY stand up behind a cruise-night 396.

If you aren't beating on it all the time I am guessing the TH350 would be okay.

It's not original, so I think you have a good chance to upgrade some things to make it a little nicer to drive. Power/upgraded brakes, power steering (JGC box). The other stuff sounds like just a few things that could make the car feel like yours as you correct them. Which to me is fun.
driver that i can tinker with over time is what im looking for. i wanted something in the 15k range but everything in that range needed body work. i wanted good guts, good frame, good body and paint and minor upgrades that i could do slowly. i really tried to get him to move but he wouldnt budge. he had some very low offers and as stated before its been for sale for a while. 20k was just the lowest he would take or just keep it.

So if you look at the other one for sale for 17x. Sounds like that one "might" have some issues as the seller says that the paint is a 15 footer. It also doesn't have the BBC, although a 400 SBC would be fun as well. But, it does have the 4 speed which is always cool in my book. But if you want a cruiser, then maybe just the auto is nicer to do that with. I guess what I am saying is if that other car goes for 17, I would think this one should be ~20. Or you could feel good about the 20k. If you keep things up to date, a 138 65 car shouldn't lose value at this point. (they aren't making any more of them!)

i imagine the 17k car has more cosmetic issues then im interested in. ive looked at enough adds to know when someone is speaking lightly about a car or doesn't want to indulge too much in the add to give bargaining power to a potential buyer.

i had a 70 before this and never finished it. i love the 70s but people are crazy for them and prices are out of control now. the 64-66 have been on my list of love too so i started looking into those as an alternative to another 70, at the same time i dont know where a clean "driver" should be priced at. nada has this car from 14 k all the way to 40. seeing its not all original the 138 is almost useless other then a story of what it once was.

Re: another 1965 malibu ss car worth

Personally, I think $20K for that car is a pretty good deal. It looks like a decent car and something to enjoy making it yours.

Re: another 1965 malibu ss car worth

My concern would be the second repaint. Why did it need to be painted again 10 years later? Rust and bad bodywork popping out?

The restoration was actually completed in 1990. So it's 15 years old. He did say he wasn't happy with the first repaint job from the start.

I combed this car again tonight . There is absolutely no rust on this car that I can find

Re: another 1965 malibu ss car worth

I know it is easy to spend someone else's money, but it sounds like you are checking all the right things, know about a few things that aren't too scary, and gets you into a model year that you want to try out. You convinced me. Do it!

Re: another 1965 malibu ss car worth

I met the owner about 10 -12 years ago when I used to do the car cruise/shows with my Elcamino.The car was nice then and I always liked it sanse a few small things that I would change but overall a very nice car.If I had the cash when it first went up for sale I would have bought it.

He's a very nice guy. I went over to look the car over for a second time tonight. He just loves to talk cars, very honest and open. The interior is a little more worn then I'd like but it's not new by any means. Everything is original other then the carpet and seat upholstery. I plan on doing some work in there after I fix the hinges and drop in the power brakes .

Re: another 1965 malibu ss car worth

I am a big fan of 65's and I would agree this one is worth $20K. You can't build one like it for that price let alone your time. Those couple little things to fix would not scare me away. Including chaging out that cheap plastic fuel filter that is next to that big block heat maker. Buy it and enjoy.

Re: another 1965 malibu ss car worth

We looked at several 65 s that had major flaws in paint and bodywork....
The cheapest one was $34,000 firm, but was really a $15,000 car....
Based on the info you supplied, i think $20,000 is ok ....
Sounds like the seller is being up-front with you ....

Re: another 1965 malibu ss car worth

I can not see from photos - but I hope some has or will put 11 inch disc brakes on the front along with the dual master cylinder. Looks good with the BBC in it. The Turbo 350 will be OK if it has been gone through.
