This 1968 Chevrolet Malibu is one of those cars where it€™s obvious that someone loved it from day one. According to the original documents that accompany the car, including the first title, it was delivered in Virginia, and probably never saw a harsh snowstorm its entire life. When you look at the body, it€™s 100% OEM sheetmetal, and there are no patches, no filler, and a first-rate paint job that looks fantastic today. All the chrome and trim is original and still in good shape, and details like the parking and taillight lenses are still clear and undamaged, and it€™s kind of cool to note that it still carries its original, factory-issued T3 highbeam headlights. Inside, the original code 772D blue interior was replaced by a correct white setup with a complete set of black carpets and a black dash pad to make it look factory correct. It shows some wear, which suggests it was taken intact from another vehicle, but it€™s hard to deny the original feel that it gives the car The only notable wear is to the driver€™s seat back where it€™s a bit frayed, plus a split on the back of the passenger€™s seat, but otherwise it could be used as-is indefinitely. But just in case, the car does include a complete set of new seat covers still in the box, but they remain uninstalled simply because the current interior is just too nice to replace. All the original gauges are fully functional, the glass is quite good, and the only real deviation from stock is an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit feeding a pair of 6x9 speakers on the rear package shelf. For a lot of guys, matching-numbers matter, even on a 307-equipped Malibu, and this car still sports its factory-issued V8. Combined with a Powerglide 2-speed automatic, it was the most popular powertrain combination in 1968, providing great torque, smooth performance, and easy drivability. Today, with gas at $4.00/gallon, you€™ll appreciate its thrift, but a quick goose of the throttle reminds you that there€™s still a small block Chevy under there ready to get to work. Of note, this car sports an all-new power brake system, including booster, master cylinder, lines, hoses, wheel cylinders, and shoes, as well as a fresh power steering gearbox and pump, so it drives and handles beautifully. The chassis, floors, and other hardware underneath remain in outstanding condition. Handsome Rally wheels always look right, and these have been fitted with fat 235/70/15 Goodyear Eagle white-letter radials that still have a lot of life left in them. Sure, you could spend twice this much for a big block or some fake SS replica, but once you experience how well this one drives, how tight an original car feels, and get a look at how unbelievably solid this one is, you might think twice. A wonderful cruiser as it sits, or the foundation for something truly remarkable if that€™s your thing, this Malibu offers a lot of bright red fun for not a lot of cash.
