This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Restomod has the look of a SS tribute. But as you dig deeper, you're going to find an even more impressive street machine with a fully-built fuel-injected V8, LED headlights, a terrific stance, and four-on-the-floor.
You want a car like this to make the right first impression. Not only do you have a distinctive shade of blue, but that's also a deep luster with plenty of metallic element. So when you take this coupe out for a sunny Sunday drive, .....
there's a radiant style that shows off the gentle curves. Straight body panels, uniform gaps, and bright chrome bumpers make sure this gets the iconic classic style right. So it has the right look of a quality build. In fact, we're told this restoration was a five-year labor of love for two best friends who took the time to build it right from the ground up. They even added a nice hint of Super Sport attitude with the cowl induction hood, hood pins, a blackout grille, and black racing stripes painted on top. As a restomod, there are also upgrades that make it a better cruiser. This includes the LED headlights that show the way forward better. And the polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels add to the shine, and at the same time, their 17/18-inch front/rear stagger gives this a stance of a modern machine.
The black interior shows off more of the kind of package that comes from a thoughtful restoration. Your eye is immediately attracted to the two rows of classic-style bench seats. They have a terrific custom style with blue diamond tucked vinyl inserts and matching piping. But they still took the time to add the classic insignia trim to this modern style. It's part of a full package that's so fresh and attractive that you'll roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop so that people will always get a good look inside. Of course, the best view is always from behind the wheel. This is set up to be a driver's classic with a custom three-spoke steering wheel, a polished tilt column, a Hurst floor shifter, and an awesome Marshall gauge package with large speedo and tach.
The engine bay is another area of this custom that's ready to showcase. The clean and smooth inner fenders, and color-matched firewall love to put the tidy motor on display. So you notice polished components everywhere from the pulleys to the valve covers. At the heart is a 400 cubic-inch Chevy motor, which is great for big block displacement in a small block weight. Plus, you'll just love how the block is color-matched to the car. It was professionally rebuilt in 2018, and there are less than 350 miles on it. This was done with the right go-fast goodies like Dart Aluminum heads, a Dart aluminum intake, and long tube headers feeding the X-pipe dual exhaust. And the Sniper electronic fuel injection system means overall better power and consistency. The motor is also supported by the right pieces, including an HEI ignition and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. You are in firm control of this full power package with a Richmond Super T10 four-speed manual transmission, and the suspension has been updated with a Hotchkis front sway bar and boxed rear arms. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a limited-slip rear end for all-around driver prowess.
