Description

1966 Chevelle Malibu Big block 454 trimmed out as a 396. I bought this car back in 1989 from the original owner in Huntington Beach California. Car had been stored from 1974, ntil I bought it, nd had it shipped to Chicago.Car was originally a 283, ut he had a 396 put in it shortly after buying it new. He told me he spun a bearing on the 396 in 1970, nd had the 396 block replaced with a 454, sing all of the 396 brackets and trim.Transmission and brakes were also upgraded at this time Car was fully restored back in 1990-1991, nd was a 96 point car at the Chevelle Showdown in Schaumburg, l back in 1992. I never drove it much, nd only put 526 miles on it in the last 23 years. Car has been in storage for the last 6 years, ith a family and young kids now, o its time to let it go to someone who can appreciate it, nd put it back on the road again. Car was recently started up after being dormant for the last 5 years, nd backed out of the garage under its own power. I changed theoil, nbsp;put fresh gas and a new battery in it, nd it fired up fairly readily, hough is running a bit rough as is tobe expected. Car will need a going over before driving it, ut it needs absolutely nothing major, nd will be a quick winter project to get it in shape for next spring.

Some of the features:

Body: Original California car. Completely rust free, nd never damaged. Car was repainted in its original regal red laquer back in 1991. I had a local restoration shop do it over several months, nd they layed down multiple coats, nd hand blocked it. Body it perfectly straight with absolutely zero ripples. No clearcoat was applied at any time. All Chrome and trim is original.

There is a small switch on the shifter, llowing the torque converterto be switched fromlow stall to high stall. This is a very unique and sought after feature.

Please contact me with any questions, r for further details. I have loved this car for many years, ut it's time to let it go. It wont take much to get it perfect again. It will need a good going over of all mechanical systems, nd I wouldn'trecommend driving it until everything is checked over.
