I've always liked these Malibu coupes. My ex had a baby blue '79 with the V-6, but I really wanted the V-8. I couldn't complain though - We got it 5 years old with 35,000 on the odometer for $500! It was so filthy that the dealer I worked for thought it had 135,000 miles, but the oil change stickers showed that the 35K was all it had on it! I was a detailer there, and a week's worth of evenings cleaning it up made it look like new!

No longer owned

About

Well, let's see, I looked at this car twice over 3 years, The owner even let me show it before I bought it and I took a 3rd place with the old ralley wheels, and that was the 1st time I looked at it, I ended up buying a truck, then I went back and that time it was a House I bought, but when I went back the third time I had cash in hand and the owner said he knew I would buy I just had to pick my time....Cool!! I love this car now, it has grown on me

Specs

This car has never been raced, not with the old tired 305 in it, The motor sound mean as hell with the 40 Flowmasters on it and nice lopey cam and low idle setting.
Future plans include;
Redoing all the Air (For the wife)
Crate Motor (350)
Grand National Rearend w/373 gears
Interior Upgrades including a custom gauge set up.
Suspenion upgrade including new body bushings.
All I need is time....and we bit of cash. But it will be done because the wife wants to do a Hot Rod Power Tour in this car and then she wants me to Restore her a Nash Metropolitain......Ouch!!

Factory Options

This old car came with, PS, PB, No Power windows, no rear defrost, it did come with the biggest small block offered for a automatic malibu (305)

Mods

The only thing I have done is installed a CD player, Flowmaster mufflers and the weld wheels, I have much, much more to come....so stay tuned
