1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu
1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu
Named after the coastal community of Malibu, California, the Malibu was marketed primarily in North America, with the eighth generation introduced globally. With the discontinuation of the Chevrolet Impala in March 2020 and the Chevrolet Sonic in October 2020, the Malibu is currently the only sedan offered by Chevrolet in the U.S.
For consignment we offer that not all of us strive to own a muscle car from the muscle car era, some families just needed a second car for the ever frequent trips a housewife would have occasion to take part in and many times it would include bringing the kids along. This car is a beautiful 1969 Chevrolet Malibu, in grocery getter form, a second car for the family, with perfect power, and ease of operation to perform the aforementioned tasks. Right here in Classic Auto Mall for the taking! An everyday car for the masses but a survivor from 1969.
Olympic Gold paint in respray form covers the exterior panels which remain straight with decently minded gaps. Some scratches throughout, a few dents and dings and overall patina is presenting as we scan the exterior. Also, there are areas of invasive rust on the lower sides of this car around the rocker areas. These can be repaired as they have not invaded the structural integrity of the frame and undercarriage, just the body on the lower portion. Speaking of which along the rockers and just into the side panels above a silver paint is used to appear as a wide trimming for the rocker. Some black pin striping painted on is present just below the belt line running the gamut of the sides. A black vinyl top is on this car and is in excellent condition. No rust beneath it which seems typical for these cars and years. Nice badging and window trimmings, bumpers and grille and all in between is looking very nice and surviving as original. On all 4 corners are standard shiny wheel covers wrapped in black wall tires. A nice design for this second year of the second generation of the Malibu, in its suburbia mom trim.
In a few words, very clean, very original and very nice. All trimmed in black vinyl from the door panels which are nearly perfect to the front and rear benches which use an interplay of dark charcoal broadcloth for the inserts and these sport a horizontal “sound wave pattern” stitched within them. The bolsters are shiny black vinyl as are the molded headrests. The rear bench is the same motif and all excellent. Black carpeting provides the base for these chairs to float in and above upfront is the original very well preserved and clean dash. Speaking of which, its factory condition with all original gauges and radio. The dash top is nice and shined padded black vinyl and no cracks are interfering with this view. The headliner is good and tight, and in black, and molds nicely to the raked rear glass and roofline inside.
Under the hood is a correct 307ci V8 topped with a two-barrel carburetor and backed up by a TH350 3- speed automatic transmission. The rear axle is a 10-bolt version with 3.08 gears. All original, all nicely aged with some paint off and patina, but mechanically sound as a rock…gas her up and go do the running around!
Some surface rust is noted on the usual suspects like suspension and driveshaft, however all solid and floorpans are rust free. Independent coil springs for the front, and a 4 link with coil springs for the rear suspension are on and all solid. Power drum brakes are on all 4 corners. We note a new battery, new alternator, and new fuel lines recently installed for general maintenance.
We sat in this car and started it up and really had to concentrate on whether it was running or not. It was that quiet and smooth. Off to the test track where she ran like clockwork, no problems with acceleration, braking or handling. A beautiful driver and you are in a very nicely preserved interior.
Running more quietly than a church mouse, a wonderful interior and all steel exterior, some minor rust at the rockers near the wheel wells, but overall a solid driver and great example of second car suburbia syndrome! A relief from all this muscle car madness we seem to have a plethora of.
