Taking its name from the coastal California city, the Malibu was created and marketed as the top-of-the-line offering of the midsize Chevelle. The Chevelle Malibu embodied classic West Coast style and when paired with an optional V8, the Malibu Super Sport (SS) became an instant classic among the American public. This 1965 Malibu takes the West Coast nameplate and improves on it with a nautically themed Neptune Blue and White metallic paint job. The livery is separated by a custom black and red stripe package that cleanly separates the lower white section for an attractive two-tone. The 383 cu-in stroker V8 is mated to a four-speed manual transmission topped with a Hurst shifter making for a dynamic and satisfying driving experience. The extensive restoration of this Malibu features many upgrades to complete the muscle car look, lowered sport suspension paired with the 17-inch US Mags modernize its appearance and increase tire selection. The 1965 Chevelle Malibu was one of the most successful muscle cars of its time, and this example, with a careful selection of aftermarket parts, is designed to enhance the driving experience while catering to those who enjoy its classic muscle car appearance.
