 The first Malibu was introduced in 1964 as the topline sub-series of the mid-sized Chevrolet Chevelle. They were available in both 2-door and 4-door configuration as well as a convertible. The Malibu SS was available only as a two-door Sport Coupe hardtop or convertible and added bucket seats, centre console (with optional four-speed manual or Powerglide transmissions), engine gauges, special wheel covers, and offered with any six-cylinder or V8 engine from the Chevelle range - with the top option being a 300 hp (224 kW; 304 PS) 327 cu in (5.4 L) in 1964.Offered here is a 1965 Malibu SS Convertible finished in Ermine White with a red vinyl interior, new red carpets, 6-changer CD player/FM radio and an electric black convertible hood in superb condition. The 4.63-litre 283Cu in. V8 engine is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission with a centre console gear change. The car features power windows all around, power brakes and steering and an adjustable steering column. It's a European model built at the GM Plant in Bienne, Switzerland, and hence the speedo is in KPH. Recent attention includes a brake overhaul with new shoes, cylinders and master cylinders, new twin-exhaust system, custom built twin silencers with stainless steel tips, and new shock absorbers. The engine bay has been fully detailed with new coolant and heater hoses, new fan and PAS belts, and the under bonnet and engine bay area painted in Satin Black. Invoices in the history file document some 72 hours of work and around £9,500 worth of expenditure. This big white convertible is a real head turner and looks like it has just arrived straight from the 'set' of a 1960's American 'Movie' filmed in 'Glorious Technicolour'. The look is completed by the almost new slim-band white wall tyres and the correct hubcaps with SS emblems. Supplied with a decent history file, a UK V5c, and MoT tested until 10th September 2019, this rare Chevelle Malibu SS Convertible is now showing 40,420km and would make a great addition to any American or classic car collection.
