1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu
Fully-Documented, Original Gold
Garage Kept Motors is pleased to offer this fully-documented 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu 350 Sport Coupe for consideration. According to the original New Vehicle Warranty pamphlet, on May 1, 1972, Olivia J. Ruether of St. Louis, MO purchased this Malibu brand new from Matt Wright, a salesman at Koenig Chevy Center of Crestwood, MO. We also have the original Build Sheet, Protect-O-Plate, Original Dealer Envelope, and Original Bill of Sale from Ms. Ruether, the first owner. Preserved documentation like this is hard to come by, especially for a '72 Chevelle.
Our client acquired the car ten years ago, retaining all the records and doing some minor, tastefully upgrades as well. When he bought it, the car was freshly painted in the original Placer Gold (code 53) paint and he elected to add the Black SS stripes. The car is powered by the original L65 350ci/165hp V8 mated to the original automatic column-shifted transmission. It also has power steering, power brakes, and front disc brakes. This is a factory AC car (code C60) although the air is not currently hooked up. According to the build sheet, The car also cam optioned with tinted glass, door guards, AM radio, remotes control side mirror, and rally wheels. The wheels have been replaced by American Racing 5-spokes. It has an upgraded 4bbl carb and a MSD electronic distributor. Our client also recently reupholstered the interior to the original Light Covert Elk (code 732) trim, installed a new exhaust system, and new front and rear bumpers.
This is a beautiful car in a rare paint color, plus it has all the original documentation, which is pretty much priceless. You'll be hard-pressed to find another one like it.
