Description for Chevrolet Malibu 1977

1977 Chevrolet Malibu Classic Station Wagon 350 CID V8 3-Speed Automatic Survivor
This is truly a survivor with the odometer showing just under 31,000 miles which I believe to be correct based on the original condition of this classic, it is just in too nice of condition to have been turned over. Of course I have no way of being certain, this is just my educated opinion.

I bought this from a collector of "A" body Chevy's where it had been stored inside since he purchased it.
I have replaced the shocks, tires, wheels, front brakes and rotors, and fuel pump. I also did an oil and oil filter change.
The wheels are period correct Keystone Mags, I didn't have the center caps.

I have been using it for my daily driver ever since, having put a little over 2500 miles on it.
I would not hesitate to drive this classic anywhere. It starts like a typical 1977 when its cold. Once it warms up you are good to go from then on till it sits overnight. If it doesn't sell I will probably do some choke and carb work on it to fix that problem.
The car runs down the road straight and stops straight. It has excellent acceleration and runs smooth all the way up to 85 miles per hour which is as fast as I have gone in it.
The speedometer is off by about 15 MPH, I would think it's the cable.
Overall very good condition for a 42 year old car. Runs and drives great. Has some dings and scratches and the paint could use some reviving but it still looks good.
The interior shows some fading of the plastic pieces and the font bench seat has a tear on the drives side bottom, both typical of a car of this era. The rear seat is in excellent condition and folds down for storage as it should.
The dashboard is cracked in a few places (see photos), very typical for a car of this age. This is the worst item in the interior.

Headliner is in amazing condition, not falling down anywhere. All original dash, AM radio with antenna in the windshield. Carpet is in very good condition.
The emergency brake cable handle needs to be reinserted in the dash.
There is very little surface rust underneath and in the door jambs and sills, again very common on these "A" body cars of this era. There are no rusted out areas that I could find. The previous owner had coated the inside of the spare tire well, a common area for rust through and it is still solid.

Engine compartment is in good overall condition, I have not cleaned it in any way except to wipe away any areas where I was working on it or wanted to see something.
All locks work with the keys, the rear hatch lock is very finicky and can take some time to open. I will most likely replace that cylinder if it doesn't sell. The inside release option is not on this car. Nor is the rear facing seat. The back does open for storage.
All lights and and blinkers work. There a couple of dash lights out. The original AM radio works but doesn't have great reception due to the antenna in the windshield. Heater works great. A/C needs recharging at a minimum, the compressor spins by hand but that's as far as I have gone on it. If it doesn't sell I plan on changing it to 134 and getting it working.
I have really tried to explain everything I possibly can on this great classic station wagon. These are getting harder and harder to find especially in this condition. I really doubt you will find a nicer original one than this one.
