This 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu convertible restomod was built to be an all-around awesome cruiser with an LS-based V8, four-wheel disc brakes, an upgraded suspension, a classic bucket seat interior, and a cool drop-top style.
Red is a timeless color and an excellent choice for a street machine. And this one has a vibrant look of a modern clearcoat application, so there\'s a kind of gloss that gives you a radiant look in the sunshine. This car is made for driving, so it\'s not looking to be too showy; just a convertible that wants you to drive, and people talk about it long after you pull away from the stoplight. The full-length waistline trim helps distinguish the Malibu as a premium Chevelle. And it sets up a look with a nice radiance from other brightwork like the wraparound chrome bumpers, clean grille, and rocker trim. And a terrific finish touch is the set of polished Rev alloys. They have the vintage style that goes with an American classic like this, and it also has a 17/18-inch front/rear stagger to give it the stance that hints at this car\'s true restomod status.
With a flip of a switch, the top folds back to reveal a full black interior. So this offers a well-coordinated color combo with the roof up or down. The door panels, dash, headliner, carpeting, and upholstery were all upgraded later in life to black, and so this stock style feels much fresher than the 1960s. And there\'s an SS-style feeling that comes from front bucket seats and a center console. So it\'s a driver\'s drop-top. That\'s also why you have nice cruising upgrades like an AM/FM/cassette stereo, under-dash auxiliary gauges, and even a tilt steering column.
The engine bay has a tidy style that lets you see the power within. This is a 5.3L LS-based V8. It\'s built for solid power with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, a Holley intake, and shorty headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust and Xlerator mufflers. You\'ll even spot good supporting components, like the Be Cool radiator, Holley oil pan, and aluminum valve covers. It\'s a strong runner, and the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is the ideal balance of strong construction to handle the added power while also being a smooth shifter for easy cruising. This kind of versatile setup is also seen in the upgraded suspension that includes a Hotchkis tubular A-arm front end with adjustable coilovers, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors.
This is the ideal Chevelle Malibu convertible made to be a restomod that loves to hit the road. So if you want a classic drop-top ready to drive, you can\'t let this one slip away. Call today!!!
