A 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu convertible will always make a great first impression. After all, the factory drop tops of this muscle car legend are rare. But when you can have one that has been meticulously restored with all the right Super Sport features, A/C interior, cool color combo, upgraded overdrive transmission, and a proper big block under the hood, then you know you're looking at the standout among standouts.
This car gives quite a sharp first impression from any angle. That's because its full restoration was completed only about 1k miles ago. We even have receipts totaling over $45k invested, so quality was the priority. Dusk Blue is an ideal color that is correct for 1969, and it also has appeal in modern times. Of course, that holds especially true on this example has the high-gloss finish of a recent professional application. And the bright white convertible top looks excellent against this. It's like the paint is the deep blue ocean, and the roof is the crest of a wave. The final coordinating piece is the SS396-specific white side stripes that emphasizes the gentle arch of the '69 Chevelle's profile. This one really gets the Super Sport look right with all the correct understated brightwork. Because of that, we also are happy to see special attention paid to making sure the remaining pieces are true standouts - such as the fresh mirror-like bumpers. But as much as this convertible goes for elegance, no one will mistake it for a pushover thanks to the dual power bulge hood, right badging, big exhaust tips, and the correct five-spoke SS wheels.
With the flip of a switch, the roof power folds down to reveal a nice parchment white interior - so this drop-top has a light and pristine overall appearance with the top up or down. Everyone loves to see bucket seats and a center console in a muscle machine like this, and it comes complete with the iconic horseshoe shifter. The bright seats, door panels, and convertible boot all have the fresh look of a proper investment. But the deep black carpeting means you never have to worry about dusting off your shoes before going for a drive, and that's exactly what this well-done classic was made to do. The factory dual-spoke steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a commanding view of the full gauge package, including tach. The radio is a retro-style unit that gives you an AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth, and so it's easy to get the best in modern driving music in this very vintage ride. And since you'll want to spend every weekend with the top down, even in the summertime, this has cold-blowing R134a air conditioning.
While the interior and exterior have been given big investments, there was still plenty left in the budget for the engine bay. The era-correct 396/402 cubic-inch V8 has the look of day one status. After all, not only is it tidy and bright, but also details like the decals, hoses, and battery look like you're picking this up from the Chevy dealer in 1969. That's the difference you get in a low-mileage and high-quality restoration. The big block inhales deeply with a Rochester four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority as the dual exhaust feeds the Flowmasters. And don't just listen to the rumble; follow the path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see how fresh and comprehensive the whole build is. You'll also spot the right SS-style components like the boxed rear arms and a sway bar. This fresh build is made to be a driver, and so not only do you get power steering and power brakes w/discs up front, but also there's an upgraded 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive.
The sale comes complete with restoration photos, build receipts, service manuals, spare components, and a car covers. This is the fresh and comprehensive restoration of a rare muscle drop-top. If you demand the best, then you know you can't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
