About “Pure68”

My boss retired and was moving to Montana He didnt want to take the car because they salt the roads there and salt would be the end of this car. He wanted to sell it to someone that would take care of it. This Chevelle Malibu Sport Coupe has 68,000 miles on it. When I got the car it had a new water pump and shocks, My boss saved the original parts so I had them rebuilt and put them back on the car. Every thing works on this car, even the clock. Drives so nice and interior is better then the out side. I debated to keep it original for months. Before I got the car I planned to put a crate motor in it, disc brakes and 17" Cragers. But it is to sweet of a ride. I have done a few Car Shows and am amazed at the attention the Car gets. Its fun to drive and fun to own a piece of Chevelle history.

About “Fred”

I was at a softball tournament when I got a call from my dad and brother. They were at a car show and saw "my car." After several phone calls back and fourth, and the evil eye from my wife, I bought the car sight unseen. When I got home I found an all original 66 bel air wagon waiting for me. I was a little nervous at first, but after looking it over, I couldn't have been more pleased.

It is currently at my brother's shop getting some minor body work done and then repainted the same original blue color. We're still deciding on two tone or some kind of stripe/graphic.
