FOR SALE: 1970 Chevelle Malibu Convertible
1970 Chevelle Malibu Convertible - This is a spectacular car that is truly a rare find. When first purchased, our plans were to make this car into a SS 454 convertible tribute, but we could not bring ourselves to do it because of just how nice this car is. We purchased this car from the original owner who special ordered the car directly from Chevrolet. It was and still is 100% born with original including the sheet metal, floors, trunk and frame as well as the entire drive line (engine-trans-rear) and interior. It was repainted once in the 1980\\\'s but the engine, trans and rear were never touched, removed or rebuilt outside of routine service and scheduled maintenance in which I have every receipt from Day 1. This car has only 85,000 original miles and it is documented, and speaking of documents, I have the original sales invoice, shipping order, Protect-O-Plate and two build sheets, one of which we found under the backseat and is still there. The interior had never been touched (when I asked the original owner if the backseat was ever removed for any reason, he looked at me and said, Why in the world would I have ever taken out the backseat! Boy I knew right then and there I found a diamond in the rough!! When we got the car home we decided to take this car completely apart to the frame and restore it original. This was the easiest restoration we ever did. BODY & PAINT: The car came apart quickly, was pressure washed, sandblasted, scraped and cleaned and painted chassis black. It went back together only after everything was detailed or replaced to look showroom new. We painted the car its original color of Fathom Bue in base/clear and replaced all the chrome, trim, lights, lenses and weather stripping. The top was replaced only a few years and still looked new so we just cleaned it and made sure it works as it should. INTERIOR: The blue bucket seat interior was pulled out of the car and cleaned and as mentioned earlier, is all original except we did replace the carpet. ENGINE, TRANS AND REAR: The engine and transmission were pulled but were not rebuilt as the car ran perfectly with no smoke, no noise and good power. We did install a new timing chain, water pump and thermostat and tuned it up with new points, condenser, plugs, plug wires and distributor cap. We pulled the intake and sandblasted it clean and sent the carb out to be rebuilt. The trans was also cleaned and resealed and we re-bushed the shifter. The rear was also cleaned and resealed. What makes this car so unusual is that it is only has a 307 c.i. two bbl. engine but it has a M-20 4 speed transmission with factory air conditioning that blows cold!! OTHER FEATURES: We installed all new shocks, springs, bushings, mounts and front end steering components, brakes, brakes lines, fuel tank and fuel lines. Nothing went untouched and everything was replaced original!! Other options are power steering, power top, AM radio with rear seat speaker, original 14\\\" rally wheels and dual exhaust. This is truly a one of a kind car that you just don\\\'t see advertised for sale very often. It is very rare because of its originality and all of the documentation. I have every registration receipt from 1970 to 2012, the original title and every repair or maintenance receipt from 1970 to 2012. Also, I have a notarized letter from the original owner stating that he was the original owner and that he sold the car to Universal Auto Sales and Classic Cars for restoring and resale. It is absolutely gorgeous and it runs and drives tighter than any car I have ever driven!! In my opinion, this car belongs in a museum. Don\\\'t miss this rare opportunity to own a truly remarkable original piece of Chevelle history. FALL SPECIAL $46,999!!!
