Here you go, a 1970 Chevelle Malibu, that still has a good portion of its original paint (both the gold and white top), so not a lot of hidden, bad body work! Floors, toe boards, trunk pan, inner/outer rockers, upper fenders, qtr panels, hood, doors, frame, all solid. We repaired the rust around the rear window and replaced the cowl panel between the rear window and trunk lid, installed and resealed the rear glass. Does have minor rust remaining at bottom of front fenders, and lower rear qtr panels on the flat side (both easy repairs). It has a good running 350 SBC with good oil pressure, idles fine and goes down the road. Trans is a T400 that shifts well. Both will need fluids and filter changed out. It has manual drum brakes, we replaced the master cylinder, brake wheel cylinders all around, and front brake shoes, pads still need adjusting. Dual exhaust car that should be fine for a while. We installed a new fuel tank, tank straps and fuel sender. We also installed a new lower rear bumper cowl. Some lights work, some don't. This Malibu was a column shift car, and someone installed the center console with horseshoe shifter that works fine. This is an original AC Car, not working, but there... Interior is all there, but needs attention. Meaning it all needs to be reupholstered and/or replaced. But have all the seats to work with. . Has the original 10 bolt rear with no issues. Has an original set of 14 Chevelle SS wheels, tires will need replaced . This is simply a solid 1970 Chevelle that still needs a few weekends to make it road worthy, but currently starts, steers, brakes and goes down the road, and not going to break the bank fixing a bunch of rust. Hard to find them this way. They are either high dollar finished cars, or project cars full of rust in which you could spend thousands of dollars fixing major rust, and haven't even turned the key yet! Perfect to keep a Malibu or killer SS Clone! Good luck!
Appreciate all the questions, and here are a few responses; this car never had a vinyl top, just had the vinyl top trim installed, which we removed and put the trim in the trunk for the new owner just in case. We just primed and painted the recess area of the rear window before installing the rear window. No, its not the original hood. No, I don't have the original wheels, but will throw a spare steel wheel in the trunk for a spare (not an SS wheel). Tires will be fine for awhile, but old and hard. Yes, quick tune up, fluid/filter changes, final brake adjustment and just some simple TLC, and this car can be driven daily on the road. I would not buy and drive to Florida or Kentucky before going over it, but certainly your call..This was my personal car I purchased years ago to make a shop build to show off our skills, just time and work load has not allowed it, so have decided to sell. We can do any upgrades, full build, whatever you choose at eastsideridesdotcom. I just bought a right rear parking light housing and lens here off ebay. It will go with the car once it arrives.Thanks for all the interest...
