Description for Chevrolet Malibu 1965

I've owned this car since 1996. It was stored for 17 years in someone’s collection before I bought it. So since it was such a rare color combination, for the first ten years I kept it as a rolling museum to how it was stock. Problem was even though the stock paint and interior were fine to drive around. The four wheel manual drum brakes, manual steering and 2 barrel carbed 283 meant I was constantly getting eaten up by minivans. So over the next ten years I have transformed this car into a corner carving, stop on a dime, street cruiser restomod. Although this is the original paint colors, the roof has been repainted now. But the base is still original in all it’s dinged up glory. I believe they call it patina now a days on a survivor like this, I just prefer to say this car looks amazing from 20 feet. It's a driver but would make for a really nice show car with paint. The bad part is I haven't had time to work on this car in a couple years. So in the interior, the console still needs to get completed to cover the coil packs that I mounted inside for a cleaner engine bay. The LS3 has about 7400 miles on it now and the oil pan has started to leak. Google LS3 oil pan leak, it’s a thing. Stuff like that drives me crazy when the rest of the motor is so clean you can eat off from it. But I just haven't had time to deal with it. I've owned this car for over 20 years and have loved it every minute of that.

Time for this to go to a new home, just sold mine and there’s no room at the condo I’m downsizing to. There is a trunk full of parts that will go with it. I have a ton of dough and time in this resto mod. It’s priced low enough to move, this is a no reserve auction. It will sell and make someone an easy project to finish. If you want to see any other pictures let me know. Walk around video can be found here: https://youtu.be/C3fe2sIbTLo
