1969 Chevelle Malibu Sport Coup Hard Top on 2040-cars
Riverton, Wyoming, United States
|This auction is for a 45 year old car. Do not expect it to be like-new condition. Please look at the photos closely. I also have a slide show with video on youtube ( http://youtu.be/In6pqBuHucy ). It always better to inspect a vehicle in person. This auction will be sold as is where is. There are no warranties implied. I require a $500 dollar deposit within 24 hours of the close of the auction with the sale completed within 7 days. THIS CAR IS NOT RESTORED AND IS IN USED CONDITION. Please do not buy this car and develop buyer's remorse as there will be no refunds. I will assist a transport person with arranging shipping, but the buyer pays for all shipping fees or you can pick it up in person. Of course the purchase must be completed before the car leaves my possession.
I will try to assist in any reasonable way.
This car has been in my family since the day it was purchased as new in Nevada. It belonged to my great grandmother. She gave it to her son, who gave it to my mother. I am only assisting with this sale. The car is original with the exception of a couple minor body parts and the engine was replaced with a Chevy 350 with four bolt bearings. The engine has around 500 miles on a rebuild. The odometer states 20,000 miles, so it is most likely 120,000 miles. It needs a tune-up. It has a four barrel carb, power glide automatic transmission with a column shifter. It has bench seats which show some wear. The back seats are excellent. The dash has a few cracks. It starts right up and the transmission shifts smoothly. It has power steering. It has drum brakes on all four tires. All of the glass appears good. It needs new exhaust. It does not have power windows or air conditioning, or power brakes. The body has a few minor dents and some rust. I tried to illustrate that in the pictures and video. Once again please see my youtube video. The front fenders have rust near the doors. The rear fenders have rust around the wheel wells. There is surface rust throughout the body and some in the trunk. The floors appear good. Door seals and trunk seals could use replacing. This is the hard top with no metal around the windows. The car was last licensed it 2003. Obviously the buyer will need to put some money and muscle into it to make it a daily driver. It doesn't seem to leak fluids.
This is a fun old American Muscle Car. It is a great candidate for a complete restore or a custom restore. I will be happy to assist serious bidders with other questions. I may be out of town Wednesday through Saturday of this week. Please look at the youtube video and pause it often to get a good look at it.

Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.

At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.

This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.
If you want a closer look at what went into designing and building the interior for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, we've got just the thing. General Motors has released a new video detailing the cabin's evolution from conception to execution, complete with commentary from Ryan Vaughn, performance car interior design manager with Chevrolet. The quick clip details how manufacturing, engineering and design within General Motors worked together from the first sketches to ensure no compromises had to be made later down the line. How novel.
With plenty of hides traced with contrast stitching and available real carbon fiber trim, the cabin looks to be a few hundred miles ahead of the C6. Given how readily critics derided the previous generation for its cabin, the C7 should make writers work a little harder to find something to complain about. Check out the video below for yourself.
