This one is a 1967 Chevy Chevelle MALIBU “no post” hardtop, and it was the result of a 3 year build that was finished up in 2004.
The car is finished in correct Madiera Maroon paint, and it looks great from every angle. The car has been driven and enjoyed since completion, so it does show a few minor blemishes like tiny stone chips and things, but certainly nothing that takes away from the cars overall presentation.
The paint is very smooth, shiny, and glossy, and I tried to take photos in the sun as well as shade to show you how nice it looks.
Tasteful stripes on the sides of the car are actually painted on, and look very good, but also show a mark or two from normal use and wear.
Thankfully, a box full of touch up paint for every color on the car is included, in case you need to touch anything up down the road.
The body is VERY solid and straight, and you can take a 4″ felt covered magnet and run it over every single part of the body and it sticks like glue.
There is a complete photo book that comes with the car, documented the original condition of the project all the way to the finished product.
Glass is clean and clear all around, and the “no post” hardtop body looks VERY cool with all the windows down when cruising.
Chrome, trim, and bright work on the car is in very good condition, and the only thing I could think of that you could possibly do to any of it would be to touch up the flat black on the grill and rear fascia panel. Other than that, it shows really nicely.
Chrome 8-whole wheels from American Racing are what the prior owner wanted when it was built, and still look like new with no pitting or curb damage.
Tires are DEFENDER SPORT radials, and are recent additions, with only about 1,000 miles on them, and NO damage or issues.
Headlights, tail lamps, parking lights, turn signals, horn, reverse lights, and wipers all work like they should.
Emblems and badging on the car shows wonderfully.
All seals and weather stripping on the car is in very good condition, and soft to the touch.
Inside, you’ll find an interior that is in excellent condition, and damage free.
Bucket seats up front in great condition, with no rips, tears, stains, or seam pulls.
Seat back have typical scuffs and marks on the plastic from normal use, but no damage.
Rear seat looks perfect, and has zero issues.
Door panels are clean and solid, and have no issues.
Window rollers, door pulls, and locks all look great.
Headliner is in very good condition, and has a functioning dome light in the center of it.
Package shelf is in great shape.
Kick panels and side panels look great, and the carpeting is like new throughout the car.
Dash is very clean and straight, and shows wonderfully.
Factory switches for lights, wipers, and cigar lighter all look good, but show light natural wear.
Radio surround and glove box trim looks great, and the glove box works as it should.
Radio is AM FM Cassette, and works like it should.
Gauge panel is very nice, and the fuel, speedometer, and clock all work as they should.
Under the dash, aftermarket gauges were added to monitor engine vitals. AutMeter supplied the giant tachometer with shift light, while Pro-Comp supplied the water temp, oil pressure, fuel pressure, and volt gauges.
An iDidit tilt column was added, and topped with a GRANT GT wheel, all of which show wonderfully.
A HURST Pro-Matic 2 shifter looks as great as it works, and lets you safely bang through the gears.
Overall, the interior is in exceptionally good condition.
Now for the good stuff! Under the hood lies a 454 stroked to 468ci and fit with a 8-71 supercharger for some extra oomph.
The specs show it to be 735 Horsepower @ 6,256 rpm with 645 ft lbs of Torque@ 4,944 rpm and it you will feel EVERY BIT OF THAT when you mash the gas pedal down.
It consists of a Dart Block, Eagle Cast Steel Crank, Eagle 7/16 Rods, Comp Cams 650/650 Roller Cam, Roller Lifters, Complete Rotating Assembly Balanced, 8.5 to 1 Compression, Forged Pistons, Manley Valves, Comp Cams Chrome Moly Retainers & Locks, Comp Cams Springs, Roller Rockers, Polished Intake, BDS 8-71 Supercharger, twin Edelbrock Performer 800 cfm blower carbs, Custom Linkage, Fuel Lines, Polished Scoop with K&N Filters, Funnycar Style Belt Guard, and more.
