BF Classified: 1977 Chevrolet Malibu Classic

Seller’s Description: 1977 Chevrolet Malibu Classic (VIN1D37LB515147) – Unrestored original with only 37K documented miles. Pretty original Tuxedo Black finish with really nice contrasting original red interior. 1977 was the last year for the “full size” Malibu as it was downsized for the 1978 model year. This beautiful southern example is nicely equipped with 350 4 barrel V8, power steering, power disc brakes, cold factory air conditioning, tinted glass, Rally wheels, sport mirrors, factory floor mats, and factory trash container. Documentation includes the original owner’s manual, original 1977 registration card, and annual inspection receipts to document the miles. Miles listed on the Virginia title as well. Car runs, drives, and performs just like you would expect a low mileage original to. It is still factory tight with no rattles or wind whistles. This is a really nice hard-to-find original that won’t break the bank like most Chevelles & Mailbu’s. Original rally wheel center caps included.
Legend has that the car was kept by the original Virginia owner for years and that is documented by the annual inspection receipts. Sold to a North Carolina collector/dealer about 5 or 6 years ago and he mostly kept the car in his showroom, only driving to local shows and putting a few hundred miles on it. We recently purchased it from him as he is selling his dealership and building. Financing and delivery are available.

Price: $16,900
Location: Chapin, SC
Mileage: 37,322
Title Status: Clean
VIN: 1D37LB515147

    Now that’s one good looking Chevelle. I had a 74 and it was one of the early year smog engines, which sucked. Once the warranty was off I went into the engine and got rid of a bunch of smog related stuff and it ran much better and got much better mileage.
    I like this one, it has a familiar look to it to me, I appreciate it (I think).

    I had one almost exactly like this as a winter beater one year, it was black with black int and those bucket seats that spun around. It was a rebuilt 350 with all the smog stuff gone. It’s was a good one year car, sold it for what I paid for it.

    $12500 is top of the market for these .
    Originality and provenance is good. Not a normal find here as most beat into ground or rotted to death.
    Hope it findS a good home .

    Am I the only nut here who thinks this would look best with the Z28 5-spoke wheels? I knew a guy who had a ’76 Laguna S-3 with those on it and it looked really cool.

    $16.5 is astronomical for a colonade without a factory big block, and even then that would be pushing it. But this is definitely nice and in the right colors, and it does have the top engine option for its model year.

    I had a nice one years ago. Parked in a crowded store parking lot, got in, backed up slowly ( like 3 mph) looking over my right shoulder swinging around. Heard a THUMP, looked around, saw nothing. Got out. OMGoodness. As the front end swung around, the edge of the bumper just clipped a square metal post. The post pulled the left side of the bumper out of it’s “low Speed impact” cylinder mechanism. The bumper pivoted on the still secure right cylinder and thus caved in the right fender. Also bent up the bumper and mechanism. Cost of repairs? Prohibitive. So that’s what became of those nice old 70’s cars. :-( Terry J

      How much do you think it would cost if you did that on a new car ? The damage to the car would be 100 times worse. As a teenager I clipped the side of my dads garage backing out with his 76 Montego and tore the whole side of the garage off. try doing that today !

    It’s a great looking car but I don’t think the value is that close to the asking on these!! Maybe in a few years!!!

    If one puts their thumb over the rear wheel in the photo, you think of El Camino.

    Howevah, phor that mucha asking price, I’d rather invest in a nice Corvette.

    Yes, it’s getting up there in age and looks great but at that price I can find a true muscle car.

    Its beautiful, but the stacked square headlights kill it for me . If it wasn’t so mint, I’d source an earlier header panel with the single round lamps . Its just to clean to mess with now.

  13. Mark L.

    I agree, Don…..Never liked the look of those rectangular headlamps (then or now!)
