Early Chevelles like this 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS convertible are pleasant enough carsand#44; but with their light weightand#44; theyre also ferociously fastand#44; especially when you stuff them with 400 cubic inches of high performance Chevy. Add an upgraded interiorand#44; a slick factory-correct paint job and you have one of the most beautiful sleepers weve ever seen.<br /> <br /> The ultra-clean look comes naturally to the Chevelleand#44; whose classic Chevy profile and minimal trim make look modern todayand#44; fifty years later. The sheetmetal on this car is stockand#44; which means no cowl induction hood or other add-onsand#44; so it has that cleanand#44; OEM look that makes these cars so popular. The classic Madeira Maroon paint makes the Chevelle look longer and sleeker than the factory finish might haveand#44; and with the darkand#44; shiny paintand#44; the crisply rendered crease on the quarter panel really stands out. It was done a few years agoand#44; so its been drivenand#44; but the workmanship still makes it look good for local showsand#44; where its sure to be popular. Its still wearing all its original badgingand#44; including CHEVROLET block letters on the trunk and the sometimes confusing Chevelle emblem on the front fenders and the Malibu SS badges on the quarters. No matterand#44; it looks greatand#44; including the shiny chrome bumpers and factory grille up front.<br /> <br /> As dramatic as the bodywork isand#44; the interior is relatively stockand#44; sporting original-style buckets and reproduction seat covers and stock-looking door panels. Replacement carpets are in good shape with only minor fading (typical in a convertible) and a beautifully finished dash pad offers a semi-custom look. The instrument panel is the original piece with a full array of red-faced gauges that are all fully functionaland#44; giving it a very cool look when you turn the key. A/C has been added under the dash and there are power windows in the doorsand#44; but youll need to install your own radioand#44; because this is a car that just screams for a high-powered sound system. The clean interior styling includes a factory console and the factory-issued steering wheel thats wonderfully ornate. The trunk is clean and theres a white that fits well and looks great.<br /> <br /> Mechanicallyand#44; this Chevelle takes no prisoners. The 400 cubic inch Chevy V8 makes enough power to incinerate the tires at will and looks as good as the rest of the car. It fits neatly in the Chevelles engine bayand#44; because its a small blockand#44; after alland#44; but it also cackles and snarls and runs superbly. The engine bay features finned valve covers and a matching air cleanerand#44; Chevy Orange paintand#44; and a big Holley carburetor to feed it. The HVAC lines are neatly routed along the fenders and power steering and power brakes make it very easy to live with. Modern accessoriesand#44; including a big alternatorand#44; help ensure reliability and theres a big radiator up front. Underneathand#44; you get long-tube headersand#44; a new dual exhaust system with a mellow soundand#44; and a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. The undercarriage is tidy and cleanand#44; but not detailedand#44; but that means you wont think twice about climbing behind the wheel and hitting the road. The final touch is a set of Torque Thrust wheels which carry 205/70/15 blackwall radials that look great.<br /> <br /> This is the kind of car that gets everything right: comfortableand#44; fastand#44; and easy to driveand#44; plus its loaded with upgrades. All that plus a classic Chevrolet performance look. Call today!
