Classic American musclecar. 1965 Chevelle Malibu, clean driver. VIN starts 13537. Original VIN and data plates intact. Tagged, smog exempt, drive anywhere today. Clean title in hand.

Motor/tranny/rear: Small-block 307 from a later Chevelle, bored to 327, cam, Weiand intake, Carter AFB Carb, new headers with custom dual exhaust from Mesa Muffler (Magnaflow mufflers), rebuilt HEI distributor with MSD module and MSD 6AL ignition. New MSD Blue Max wires. Solid Turbo 350 tranny, shifts hard, B&M shifter. 10-bolt non-posi rear with 3.08 gears. Electric puller fan, car runs 195 in full desert heat. Brand new battery. Fresh oil and filter. Runs great and cool. Starts every time. Runs strong.

Body: Clean, no rust, driver-quality red paint, bubbled in about four spots, starting to rub off in high-stress areas (door sills, etc.). Looks great from 7-10 feet. Body is very straight with no excess bondo to my knowledge. Skim coat on righthand rocker panel. Does have typical dings and dimples, but you have to look very closely. No rust on body, underbody or frame. Trunk pan repaired at some point, otherwise very clean in that department. Rear fender lips notched and folded to clear tires.

Wheels/tires: Brand-new -- less than 200 miles -- Weld Prostar wheels with BFG ATs (275/60 rear, skinny fronts). Front discs and rear drums, manual. Power steering. Rear drums just rebuilt and diff fluid changed. New stock rear springs.

Interior very clean. Newly redone seats, door panels, dash pad. New 3-inch RJS lap belts. New tach, new Sony stereo with Infinity 6x9s in rear. New package tray and padding.

What the car needs: Upper/lower ball joints should be replaced soon as boots have rotted away. Headliner in great shape, but doesn't match the rest of the black/red interior. That's it.

Nothing weird at all with the car. Drives straight and true, no weird noises. Not show quality, but beautiful driver car that draws attention. Car is just not practical for me and I'm getting over the classic car fixation for now.

Sale price: $16,000. Based on regional prices of other cars in this class, this is a very fair price.

Will consider partial trade for one of the following, plus cash from your end:

-- a street-legal, moderately built LS1 F-body (Camaro/Firebird);
-- or built Fox-body Mustang;
-- or a clean older CJ5 or CJ7 that hasn't been butchered up; possibly a clean TJ (post 97) Wrangler. No other trades considered.
