Restomods are a great way to blend the best characteristics of classic and modern cars. This 1965 Malibu SS convertible is one of the most stunningly well done restomods we've had here at Ideal. Under the hood is the venerable Chevy small block V8 stroked to 383C.I. with ATI electronic ignition and breathing through Hedman headers and a custom Flowmaster exhaust. The transmission has been upgraded to the more efficient and modern 4-speed 700R4 automatic, connected to a strong and reliable Ford 9” rear end. The suspension consists of Viking Performance coilovers, Hotchkis sway bars and trailing arms, and upgraded 4-link rear suspension. The brakes have been upgraded to CPP 4-wheel disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors for ultimate stopping power. The exterior is finished in deep Performance Blue metallic accented by the beautiful dark heather gray cloth top and matching boot, as well as stunning chromework and eye-catching Foose 5-spoke wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich G-Force rubber. The interior is a masterpiece, covered in smooth black leather with custom front bucket seats, rear bench, door panels, and center console that houses the special B&M Magnum Grip Street Bandit shifter. The dash now houses modern Dakota Digital VHX gauges and a premium AM/FM/CD Alpine stereo is installed in the top of the center console. The interior is kept cool with a Vintage Air climate control system that is sure to keep you comfortable no matter what the weather is like outside. This excellent restomod is ready to hit the road with it's new owner!
