ran into a guy last night at our weekly small town car show. He owns a 1969 ss 396 that he purchased new off the showroom floor at our local Chevrolet dealer in 1969. I talked with him for quite awhile about the car, I noticed that above the glovebox the emblem said Malibu and not ss396. I of course didn't say anything as I am not the type of guy to point that stuff out. The owner had the original invoice and buildsheet on display at the show, also the car had the "L" on the trim tag. Did the Leeds plant substitute Malibu emblems at some point, did they run out? I can ask him when the car was built when I see him again if that helps. I was just curious, he swears it's been there since day one. Any thoughts?
