Chevrolet Malibu Sports Coupe

Year: 1971|Miles: Exempt |Ext: Red|Int: Black |


For the 1971 model year, Chevrolet continued with its popular Mid-sized Chevelle, now with a mildly refreshed front end that featured single headlights and a new grille. Much as before, a myriad of engine options and trim packages was available that ranged from the mild-mannered six-cylinder sedan to a fire-breathing Big Block Super Sport convertible. A wide variety of?V8 engine options were offered to suit any number of customer needs. The base V8 was the low compression 307, next came a pair of 350 cubic inch engines with either a 2 or 4 bbl carburetor, the 400 big block and the 454 big block. With coupe, convertible, sedan, pickup and station wagon bodies available, the options for building the Chevelle of your dreams were seemingly limitless.

RB Collection?s featured example is a rare, numbers-matching 1971 Chevelle Malibu Sports Coupe with the L65 2-bbl V8 and a four-speed manual transmission with floor shift. This is a desirable car in that it still retains its original matching numbers engine and hasn?t been converted to an SS clone or heavily modified?modified. It retains the ?original clean and attractive look?with correct dog-dish hubcaps and minimal exterior trim. The interior has been restored to correct specs, executed to a very high standard, with an excellent black perforated headliner, correct black vinyl trim on the seats and correct nylon-loop carpeting. ?The body is clean, straight and very well-restored. Panel gaps are consistent and the doors shut beautifully with a satisfying solid feel. Structurally sound, it is a rust free car with a clean and straight undercarriage. The chrome trim is excellent, with no pits, scratches or dents in the bumpers. Detailing on the numbers-matching engine is to a high standard with correct clamps, fittings and finishes.

On the road this Malibu delivers excellent performance from the 350 along with a proper muscle car soundtrack thanks to the mild exhaust system. The engine idles incredibly smoothly and always starts with just a quick turn of the key. Very good?cosmetics and performance make it a great choice for cruising or casual show. The sale includes the original jack and spare wheel, warranty book with Protect-O-Plate, and clear Pennsylvania title.
