Default 1979 Chevy Malibu

Original color scheme, but not the original paint. The flywheel is the only original drivetrain component.

I am the original owner.






I haven't decided whether to go through one more build with it or strip off all the parts I can use for a different project and let the rest go to somebody looking to build a dragstrip car.

Very Cool!! You've done a lot of work on that car! Gotta love a built 350 with a 5 speed!

Thanks.

It's been a fun ride/project over the years, for both powertrain and chassis/suspension.

I modded the original 305 once, eventually swapped in a much healthier 350, then upgraded that. Went to the EFI build after the uprated 350 dropped a valve (son was driving at the time, with at least one friend on board).
