We've featured a few classic Ford Galaxies in this space recently, and today it's Chevrolet's turn for a classic. A 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS Convertible gets the spotlight.

This one has 80,000 original miles on the clock and has the 283 cubic-inch engine that makes 195 horsepower. The carb has been replaced and the transmission is original but rebuilt.

Similarly, the car seems to be well-maintained and fairly close to the original, though with some cosmetic issues. The car was repainted in 1989.

The seller wants $50K with a $5,000 non-refundable deposit from any buyer who isn't local to Corona, California.

    No comments on the 283 cid engine? Although certainly not the most powerful or prestigious engine offered by Chev, it did have a reputation for durability.

    Wheels gotta go.

  • Lorenzo This series is epic, but I now fear you'll never get to the gigantic Falcon/Dart/Nova comparison.
  • Chris P Bacon Ford and GM have decided that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Odds are Chrysler/Cerberus/FCA/Stellantis is next to join in. If any of the companies like Electrify America had been even close to Tesla in reliability, we wouldn't be here.

  • Chris P Bacon I see no reference to Sweden or South Carolina. I hate to assume, but is this thing built in China? I can't help but wonder if EVs would be more affordable to the masses if they weren't all stuffed full of horsepower most drivers will never use. How much could the price be reduced if it had, say, 200hp. Combined with the instant torque of an EV, that really is plenty of power for the daily commuter, which is what this vehicle really is.
