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 “blackbird”

This car has had many small issues since i picked it up.
it seemed as soon as you got one thing fixed another one popped up.
battery,alternator,water pump, radiator...all new.
i spent the majority of the year neglecting it while i worked on my z28.
recently the valves started chattering and i decided to go for broke and overhaul the car,
4 new tires( larger option sizes)
hatch and hood replaced
new cat back exhaust
the engine got really overhauled
new cylinderheads and valves, camshaft intake manifold
after christmas going after similiar suspension upgrades to the z28.
over 3k spent in 2 weeks!
