Unfinished Wagon: 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle

More times than not when a second-generation Chevelle pops up for sale, it’s usually an SS 396 or 454. Or at the very least a Malibu. This is vehicle is the latter, but as a station wagon that was called the Concours. This 1972 Malibu Concours is a running project that will need body and interior work to take it to the next level. Located near Charlotte, North Carolina, this Chevy wants a new home and is available here on craigslist for $4,300. Thanks, Pat L., for the tip on this one!

If you were shopping for a Chevrolet wagon in 1972 and the Chevelle was the right size for your family, you had no less than four trim levels to choose from. Entry-level was the Nomad; next up was the Greenbrier; then the Concours (which was a Malibu with up to three seats); and, finally, the Concours Estate (top-end with fake woodgrain side paneling). Out of 54,336 of these wagons Chevy built in 1972, the Concours was the most popular at just shy of 23,958 units.

This wagon looks like a project that was started but the seller is overtaxed to complete. It has a basic 307 cubic inch V8 with a TH-350 transmission and we’re told that you could drive it, but not out in the rain as some of the glass is out of the car. So, if the wagon is okay mechanically, the buyer could direct his/her attention toward cosmetics.

The original color of this Concours may have been light blue as that’s the color on the inside of the driver’s door. The rest of the wagon is wearing primer grey, and some of the chrome and trim pieces appear to have been removed in anticipation of a paint job. We’re told there is some rust in the cargo area and the stock hood has been replaced with one from the SS series. Perhaps this wagon was on its way to being a tribute vehicle. The seller has more projects than time, so this Chevy needs to go in order to free up resources.
