Bought the car in 2012, paint and interior were nice, engine and trans (327/350) were ok. It had 15x8 Vette rally's with tires that were too big and rubbed.
1965 Chevrolet Malibu (Dark Brown)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Originally a 283/Powerglide car, it was swapped out for a 327/350 combo by the previous owner. I've since upgraded to a slightly built 350 Vortec roller block and 700r4 trans. I installed Vintage Air in 2012 as well as an aluminium radiator and electric fan (junkyard 2003 Ford Focus fits nicely and only cost $15) Dual exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers.
Interior
When I got the car, it had brown and tan velour covered factory seats, black everything else. It was nice, but I'm in the process of upgrading to black leather bucket seats from a 2001 Cadillac Eldorado, a black leather rear seat from a 2001 Audi A8 and a center console, complete with automatic shifter (cable operated), from a 2004 Dodge Neon.
Exterior
Dark brown paint, new bumpers, trim, chrome and lenses. Dark tinted windows.
Audio
Custom Autosound head unit, Rockford Fosgate amp, Alpine 6x9's in the read deck and Pioneer 6.5's in the doors.
Suspension
Lowered maybe 3 inches (worn out original springs on the rear and new springs with cut coils to match the rear ride height on the front), I know it's kinda redneck, but it works and rides great! Front disk brake kit from Pirate Jack to include all new hard lines, new control arm bushings, all new steering components (tie rods, center link, idle arm, etc), big PST sway bar on the front, none on the rear (yet)
Wheel and Tire
17x8 Boss 338 wheels, 225/50 on the front and 235/60 on the rear
