Rusty 1967 Chevelle Malibu Convertible Project

If you are looking for something special about this car, there is not much. Well, it is a ’67 Malibu convertible. But, the only way you would give this car a home is if you are looking for a major project. If you think the current bid price of $3,150 is appealing, take note that the reserve is not yet met. The numbers do not match on the car, and the VIN is not listed, but the title is clear. You can view more here on eBay.

The engine is listed as a 327 cubic inch V8 connected to a Turbo 350 automatic transmission. It needs help. The valve covers are off and laying across the engine, not adding to the visualization of a worthwhile project. The air filter and carburetor are in the same sad condition. There is major rust in the engine bay. This might be worth putting in a new motor rather than restoring.

There is an interior, but it is shredded up, rusted up, and full of debris. The dashboard is rusted and there is no radio. Wiring just protrudes from the spot of where it was. Dials are missing, the door trim is falling off, and the floors look frail. Not much is left of the convertible top. The trim and frame seem to be there, but it doesn’t look to be stable. It is hard to see what is salvageable about these parts.

Rust permeates the whole car. The hood, fenders, floors, frame, wheel wells; the only part on this car that doesn’t have rust is the window, and that is only because it can’t! But even that can’t escape some sort of destruction. It has cracks running through it and a hole in it. The listing has photographic evidence of all the rust and issues with the car. This seems to be a project for a Mad Max type build or maybe for parts?

    Seller is advised to confirm the operating hours of the local scrapper and plan accordingly.

    Dumpster. That’s not even the original engine! Who destroys a car like this, then expects self respecting people to pay thousands of dollars for it? It would be kinda like buying a rotting steer carcass and thinking it steak. Thanks, but no thanks.

    Wow this is rough .

    It can be saved but much labor needed .
    The reserve should be 800 tops

    At least this junket is out of a yard as some folks leave them in the field and ask super high prices 👍

    My 64 chevelle convert one owner was in a pole barn but I knew it was there all along with no rust and new top and 230 six .i just had to redo the brakes and alternator along with a tune up .

    I do like the 67 model look 👀

    I think this would have been a very nice looking car at one time. Butternut yellow with all black trim and top. Back in the early seventies, when I started driving, it would have been on my want list and you could have bought it for five to eight hundred dollars.

      Bang on Herbee and others above who wrote this Malibu convertible is too far gone by at least 10 yrs. My sentiments also. This 1967 Chevelle was likely still a restorable barn find / field find around 1997 when it was 30 yrs old. But that was over 20 yrs ago. The cost of rebuilding would far exceed re-sale value. But most of all, if you bought this car AFTER restoration, then saw these BEFORE photos, you’d be upset and angry. This car is obviously too far gone. And yet, as I write this, over 30 bids on ebay. Nuts. Huh, and not a Porsche, either…

    This is a parts vehicle at best..?not much there,that is
    usable without total refurbishment,some aluminum trim,
    and convertible only parts,but not much else.I say $1500,
    or the right guy..,would be a realistic figure for this.
    This is a shame,as it was once a beauty for sure,I have a 67 hardtop
    Malibu,and I may not drive it much,or work on it anymore,though it still needs plenty of TLC,I do keep it stored inside of a decent building,and will never let this happen to it…,I would sell it cheap before that could happen.Good luck to the buyer,stock up on the rust converter now..!!
