Chevrolet’s Chevelle nameplate appeared on the automaker’s A-body platform in 1963, and ran for fourteen years across three generations. Challenging competitors in the mid-size segment, the Chevelle was offered in a diverse array of body styles, including two and four door sedans, hardtops, and station wagons, two door coupes and convertibles and even a coupe utility variant. This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu is from the second generation of the nameplate, and sports the convertible body style. With 100,000 miles, it’s seen some use, but the current owner reports a fair bit of refurbishment and new items. Read on to find out more.
The new blue paintjob on this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu makes it look pristine, as it sits and rolls on reportedly new tires, with the wheels covered by new wire hubcaps. An aftermarket exhaust is said to have been installed and can be seen peeking out behind the rear wheels. Lights, badges, and chromework all appear to be in great condition too, and the powered cream convertible top grants easy access to open-air motoring at will. The blue interior is reportedly new as well, and we see comfortable seating for up to five occupants, but four may be more comfortable. The current owner reports that that the retrofitted seatbelts have shoulder straps for added safety. You’ll also find new carpet, and judging by the dash controls, this Chevelle Malibu seems to come with air conditioning as well as heating for climate control. There’s a retro-style radio in the dash, beneath which sits a JVC head unit with CD playback and changer control. We can also see some aftermarket speakers installed in the rear section.
This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu packs a 350ci V8 beneath the hood, that would have put out around 300hp when new. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a three speed automatic transmission. The current owner reports that this Chevelle has received a new battery, newer carburetor, new brake pads and rotors, a rebuilt transmission, new heater core, new sway bar, and the radiator has been cleaned out and reinstalled.
