Here we have a 1971 Chevy Malibu Chevelle which has a non original 454ci V8, has already had a bunch of replacement parts, not yet driveable but is primed for being a nice little restoration project.

It’s a shame it’s not a ‘SS’, but it seems that the present owner has added a few ‘SS’ features such as a SS cowl induction hood, SS tac dash and SS rear bumper. Parts wise the ad. says that what has been replaced up to now includes – ‘a brand new gas tank, brand new radiator, all new copper/nickel brake lines, new master cylinder, new proportioning valve, new brakes, new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, points and a Carter 4bbl.’

So, it sounds like the restoration work has started at least on the parts side of things. The interior looks relatively complete clearly showing its years of neglect, minus carpet. But as per the rest of the car, the floor shows rust holes which I think is going to be the major job on this car.

The main selling point here is the big Block 454, which apparently came from a Chevy pickup. The engine is said to be, ‘As far as being drivable it will still need a little work.’ Which generally means to get it up and running could be anything from a total engine strip down to everything in between.

If the engine turns out to be usable then this could be a nice restoration project if you can grab it for the right price. It’s currently at $8000, so its maybe worth keeping an eye on this one.
