Up for sale is a REAL 1965 SS Malibu Convertible 138 vin car. In 1964 Pontiac introduced the GTO by stuffing a 389
into a Lemans and started the muscle car craze. So in 1965 Chevrolet had to find an answer, what they came up with
the Z16! There were 201 of them made, 200 hardtops and 1 convertible. That convertible was lost to history and if
ever found would be a priceless "1 of 1". This car was made to look like what the second one would have been.
It has a big block 454 in it and is a 4 speed. Featuring the power convertible top, woodgrain steering wheel, dash
mounted clock and the under dash Kleenex dispenser; all super rare options for the '65. It also has the same Z16
wheel covers in near perfect condition. I also hunted down and rebuilt the original number Holley carburetor that
came on the Z16. Both the transmission and motor were rebuilt before I bought it and have approximately 15,000 -
20,000 miles on them, although I do not have the documentation.
This car looks stunning in it's Teal Blue paint; with it's white top and interior, it's a perfect combination. If
you tried to build this car today, it would probably cost close to 100K. Especially if you were lucky enough to
find all the rare options this car has.
As in any 50 year old car there are a couple of minor things that will need to be tended to if you want to make it
perfect. The top drivers side latch for the convertible top is very thin metal, I would probably reinforce it with
a brace or add more metal to it. The rear window is made of real glass, not plastic and the zipper that goes around
the top has skipped a tooth. I had it priced to replace at a local interior shop for $125.

The next Chevrolet Cruze isn't set to go into production for about another year, and we're just now seeing prototypes of the new compact running around here in the States. Not much more has been revealed since we saw the car blasting through the snow in Europe, but we can still clearly see new design elements like the larger grille, slimmer headlamps and redesigned taillamps.
Our spy photographers worked up a composite image of this Cruze prototype alongside the current model, and here, we can clearly see some big visual changes are in store for the new model. The 2015 Cruze's hood slopes downward more dramatically, the windshield is more heavily raked, and the roofline looks more fluid overall. The next-generation Cruze will ride on the new global Delta platform that will also underpin other General Motors vehicles like the Chevrolet Volt and Equinox.
As for what's under the hood, we expect the normal range of gasoline four-cylinder engines (both naturally aspirated and turbocharged), and the compact's new turbodiesel four should carry over, as well. Have a look at the full brace of spy photos in the gallery above.
Chevrolet Camaro goes to South Korea - Click above for high-res image
General Motors decided several years ago to begin heavily promoting Chevrolet as its global mainstream brand even in markets where its existing brands like Opel and Daewoo were a dominant force. Today, at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea, GM Daewoo president Mike Arcamone announced that the Camaro would lead the way in GM's efforts to market Chevrolet in South Korea.
For now at least Chevrolet and Daewoo-branded vehicles will coexist in the Korean market. However, while we were in China last week GM officials told us that the Daewoo brand, which has been somewhat tainted by past quality issues, would eventually be phased out in favor of Chevrolet. When the new Aveo launches next year it will likely be badged as a Chevrolet even though GM Daewoo is in charge of engineering the car.
There's not much to see here, but if you're one of those waiting for the reveal of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, above is the teaser image that Chevrolet posted on its Facebook page. We've seen the truck in form-fitting camo before, and even less can be made out here beyond those seriously punchy Silverado-esque fenders and the knowledge that the projector-beam headlamps teased previously do indeed work. We'll have to wait until Thursday for a full perusal of the "bold exterior design" and "careful attention given to every detail" we've been promised.
Gathering intel and rumors, magnesium and aluminum contribute to the Silverado's weight loss plan, the purported "High Country" top-tier trim will contribute to luxury pickup truck competition and profit margins and the next-generation small-block V8 will contribute to improved fuel economy. On the engine note, there have been rumors of available V6 engines, and when Facebook user John Jones asked "Where's your answer to that EcoBoost Chevy?", the Bowtie replied "stay tuned on the 13th. We think you'll be pleased...".
Along with the "Raise the Bar" tag, Chevrolet says of the Silverado, "You asked, we delivered." You can watch the reveal live on Chevrolet's Facebook page at 9:30 am EST, this Thursday, December 13. The GMC Sierra 1500 will also be there, and we'll see both in person at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
