1979 Chevrolet Malibu (#949) Hello friends, we're excited and honored to present another high quality classic car. Today, we're offering a peek at an incredibly well built, rust free, low mileage 1979 Chevy Malibu Classic. I had the honor of buying Wally's 1979 Malibu; his pride and joy since he purchased it in 2015. Wally's a Marine and Vietnam veteran, who, like many vets of his era, also likes FAST cars. These G-body GM cars from this era are perfect platforms to build off of, and that's exactly what Wally did. According to the trim tag, this car could have come from the factory with a manual transmission, and we believe this to be the case. Please look at the videos and photos, as the steering column is a manual trans column, the pedal assembly appears 100% factory, and the transmission tunnel does not appear to be altered in any way. This gorgeous Malibu shows just 51,084 miles, and although we don't have hard documentation to prove mileage, wear items like trim, chrome, and pedal wear all make me believe the miles are correct. The undercarriage of this car is GORGOUS and the frame & components aren't pitted up, which makes us believe this is a southern or western car. Body panels appear to be original to the car, but we cannot say this with certainty. It's an incredibly dry, solid, rust free car. Notice the wide (8"?) rally wheels in back, with slightly skinnier wheels up front. The car has a perfect wicked street machine stance... The body is straight, and paint is basecoat/clearcoat, finished prior to Wally's purchase in the car's original color, Dark Blue Poly, with a tasteful amount of metallic added. The paint is glossy, a mile deep, and has been professionally polished & ceramic coated. Note that the cowl induction hood is a high quality steel unit. However, the body has some dings, nicks and touch-ups from use over the years. The interior is nice, but the plastic panels have all been dyed to go with the black interior, and do show some wear. Although still very presentable, I'd call the interior driver quality. Glass, trim, and chrome are all quite nice on this car and show incredibly well! Please see the videos below for additional details. The undercarriage is as honest as it gets on this car. It's rock solid, and doesn't appear to have any floor repair performed over the years. Notice, too, how smooth the metal is underneath, an indicator that this car came from the south or out west. It's a quality car. Again, please see the videos below... The transmission is a 661 cased Muncie 4-speed. My instincts say it's an M20, based on the shift points. The 661 cased Muncies are highly sought after because of their added strength; another testament to the quality of this car. The rear is a 10 bolt with a posi unit in it and what we believe is a set of 3.08 highway gears. A set of 3.40 gears will come with the car, although a set of lower gears than that would certainly be fantastic for racing! This car runs. Oh, she runs. There's a healthy cam installed, a high rise intake, and dual quads to top off this aluminum head horsepower creator. This car is torquey, tight, and quick. Even with these street gears, she turns those 265 rear tires with ease. Remember, Wally was a Vietnam veteran...he wasn't going to have some low powered nonsense. Receipts from Wally since 2015 include a fresh Edelbrock Performer intake and dual 500 cfm carbs, 11" clutch, bellhousing, ring and pinion, Edelbrock Rolling Thunder cam, distributor, MSD ignition, trailing arms and rear springs w/ air bags, front wheel bearings, master cylinder, fuel pump, alternator, starter, battery, oil pan gasket, timing cover gasket, and the list goes on... Please see our videos below for a detailed overview of all of the receipts we have for work performed on this high quality Malibu. FINANCING/DELIVERY IS AVAILABLE 847-848-1850
