Description

You're looking at the rare opportunity to own the end of an era. This 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu convertible represents the last of the Chevelle droptops. Less than 5,000 were produced in this final year, so it's great to see such a significant and rare car with its believed to be 48,000 original miles, numbers matching V8, factory interior, and wearing it's correct shade of bright red.Code 75 Cranberry Red is the car's original color, but when the sunlight hits this convertible, you instantly tell it has a shine that's as nice as they came from factory in 1972. The extra luster is courtesy of a professional respray, and let's face it, we all love a shiny red convertible. This one did not get the SS treatment added during its lifetime, and instead wears its premium Malibu personality with pride. And it's this upper class distinction that lets you enjoy the exceptionally straight sheetmetal with gentle curves, well-defined creases, and flowing front hood. A car this solid and nice deserves the best brightwork, so everything from the delicate wheel arch trim, to the big chrome bumpers have a mirror-like presence. And speaking of the bumpers, 1972 was also the last year before federal standards took over, so we appreciate how artfully they're integrated into the overall design Black is always a beautiful choice for Chevelle interiors. This one looks especially well preserved and original, which tells you there was a lot of care taken when the top was down. But the power folding roof will help with watertight motoring when the sky turns gray. These might have been the midsize Chevys back in the day, but there is plenty of room for you to carry all your friends and family with the two rows of bench seats. Plus, everyone can even stay entertained thanks to the updated AM/FM/cassette stereo and upgraded speakers. But a convertible like this is really about the driver. That's why you get the factory two-spoke steering wheel that gives you a commanding view of the old-school speedometer that's about as long as the horizon.A car this interesting is going to get shown off. So the engine bay makes sure to live up to your expectations with a highly original, and exceptionally tidy, presentation of the verified numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. More than just shiny elements like the valve covers and air grabber, the high gloss on the hoses and the bright orange on the block let you know that there have been investments in care and maintenance. And while this looks like a highly original Malibu, the moment you twist the key it has a little extra growl like it was an SS. That's thanks to the recent addition of the Pypes X-pipe dual exhaust to exhale from, and the 4 barrel carburetor to inhale. So, this Chevelle has nice V8 power and a little extra attitude. Out on the road, the power steering, TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power front disc brakes, and new Goodyear rubber on the Rally wheel package all come together to give you an easy, anytime cruising feeling.Complete with title documentation, this is a rare and interesting convertible that has always been treated with the respect it deserves. Now's your chance to enjoy the last great Malibu droptop. Call now!!
