1979 Chevrolet Malibu Classic Description:

I have a 1979 Chevrolet Malibu Classic that has been fitted with an LS fuel injected 5.3 engine and a rebuilt 4l60E transmission. The interior has been redone in a 79 Corvette Doeskin color. The car has brand new carpet, brand new seat belts(front) and brand new headliner, all in the same doeskin color. I also installed all digital gauges (odometer is not reflecting actual miles) This car was originally had blue interior with a bench seat and has been converted to bucket seats and a console shifter. The car was recently painted and looks good, I would say a 7/10 score. The right side quarter panel has been replaced sometime in the past. The engine was pulled from a20022wd Silverado with 104,000 miles. I have installeda bigger cam(comp cam XR275HR-12), new GM roller lifters, new GM oil pump, harden comp cam push rods, Hooker headers, Holly billet fuel rails, and freshened up stock 243 heads.The transmission is a freshly rebuilt 4l60e with a 3200 stall converter. The rear end is out of an 87 monte carlo ss. I have installed UMI performance rear upper and lower control arms. The car is sitting on brand new Cooper Cobra tires. This is a turn key car and can drive it anywhere andget around 20mpg. The only thing I don't have hooked up in heat/ac and there is no radioand no speakers. The interior needs a few final touches to be completed (needs sun visors, front headliner trim installed and of course there's no heat/ac and no radio/speakers. The exhaust is fairly loud, it does have headers with 3 inch exhaust going into thrush mufflers and dumped at the rear axle, does drone inside so tail pipes would solve that. The fuel system is all new with stainless steel braided line, Corvette C6 style fuel regulator,currently the fuel gauge is not working, believe the sending unit went bad. This is a driver car that is very clean and looks great,by no means a show car. The rear bumper has chrome peeling off and will need a new windshield due to large crack. The frame, floor boards, andtrunkare very solid. I have installed new weather stripping but the windows do need slight adjusting. Same with the fenders, doors, hood and trunk(I have provided photos). If there is any other photos you would like on the car please ask. I have more photos to show but I was only able to upload 24. Below is a list of parts I have installed off the top of my head.Due to this being an oldcar, built hot rod, customized car, this is being soldas-is.
