Nice restorable 1957 Chevy 4 door sedan. This car is a factory Bel-air and it is a factory V-8 car. It has a freshened 350 engine in it with a mild hydrolic camshaft, with 600 cfm Edelbrock carb and aluminum intake manifold. It has HEI ignition, and a stock 350 turbo automatic transmission. Transmission will leak some if it sits a long time. It has been converted to an internally regulated alternator. It has a new aluminum radiator, It has dual exhaust with turbo type mufflers. It is all stock front to back on the rest of the car. The brakes are all stock and work great, the steering is nice and tight and steers easy. It is very reliable and can be driven daily. I rescued this car from a junkyard about 7 years ago and peiced it all back together. I have been driving it like you see it for the past 4 or 5 years. I cleaned and prepped the engine compartment and painted the firewall and frame all gloss black before I put the engine in and it is still fairly clean under the hood. The underside of the car has no issues that I found. The frame is boxed with no rust, all body mounts are good and even floors are nice. on the inside there is a few small holes in the drivers fllor pan, but it does not need replaced. I patched the bottom of the drivers front fender and it is good. It still has small rust around the headlight on driver side. The pass side fender is real nice, as is all 4 of the doors. rear floor pan and rear floors are all solid and dont need replaced. The quarter panels inside the rear door jambs need patched, and rear spots on the rockers. The trunk lid does have rust in it. No rust in the roof or around the windows, or below deck lid either. Overall it is a very solid car. The glass is all fair (age bubbles on some) crack in right front wing vent. Good windshield and rear glass and all of the window cranks work. It is missing the heater blower motor, but does have a good heater core. It is missing some parts of the kick panel vents. All outside lights work, headlights and tail. Inside functions NOT working are heater, dash lights, fuel guage, wipers, speedo. The temp guage works, alt charge light works, dome light works. I have all the bows for the headliner to go with. The front bumper is pretty good, the grille bar is excellent, and alI of the stainless is on it and in really good condition. I also had the fuel tank out and cleaned and installed a new sender and pickup. It worked for three weeks than the guage quit. As you can see from the inside, the origional color was gold and white. the pictures of the trunk look funny because I got some of it wet when i washed the car right before the pictures. I painted this car with base coat red to give it the rugged look. It is not a nice finish. This is a very fun car and you can drive it home about anywhere (if its not too cold) it has been very reliable and runs strong. It rides real nice at full speed down the interstate and I would trust it to go anywhere. It is for sale with the white ralley wheels and very good tires. If you want the 18" boss 5 spokes they will cost you $1000 more. The 18" wheels are new with used tires. I have a clear nebraska title in hand, there is no vin tag on body. This car is located in central Nebraska right off I-80 in Gibbon. You are welcome to come see it and test drive it. Thanks and good luck. I hav room to store this car inside for you for a reasonable amount of time as long as it is paid in full. You can text me or call. kyle 308 708 1955

Quentin Tarantino fans will likely remember Vincent Vega's cherry 1964 Chevrolet Malibu Convertible in Pulp Fiction. In a movie drenched in automotive references, the Malibu is very nearly a character in and of itself, and it serves as the subject of Vega's soliloquy about the kind of man who vandalizes another's automobile. It also happened to be Tarantino's personal car when the film was shot, and was apparently stolen shortly after production wrapped. Now police have located the car some 19 years later.

As it turns out, the thieves cloned the vehicle identification number from another '64 Malibu and had the car registered under the new digits. It was then sold to an unsuspecting buyer. Police happened upon the duplicate VINs while investigating another potential theft. Right now, it's unclear whether Tarantino has taken possession of the Chevrolet, if it has remained in the possession of the fraud victim, or whether it's caught somewhere in the gears of justice. Either way, you can catch Vega's memorable thoughts on the car keying in the Pulp Fiction clip below. But consider yourself warned: the video contains explicit language as Not Safe For Work as it comes.
General Motors is recalling some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.

The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.
According to a letter from General Motors to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, flaws in the build process of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu have led to the recall of 8,519 cars. Units built between December 6, 2011 and January 15, 2013 may have been assembled with rear suspension cradles that had insufficient torque applied to certain bolts. That out-of-spec assembly could lead to issues ranging from slight noises to a loss of vehicle control.
The problem was first noticed in December of last year by a GM test fleet driver and eventually tracked back to the improperly torqued bolts on the suspension cradle assembled through July 2012 by a supplier located not too far from the Malibu's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly Plant. Since an official NHTSA recall notice has not been issued yet, it isn't clear whether or not Detroit-built Malibus were the only ones affected (the 2013 Malibu is also built at GM's Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas). Dealers will fix the problem by inspecting vehicles for proper torque specs, retightening if not within specs and, in some cases, perform a rear-wheel alignment.
