1965 Chevrolet Chevelle MalibuF
rom its debut in 1964, the intermediate 'A-Body' Chevy Chevelle and upscale Malibu sub-series were very successful, thanks (in part) to their attractive styling, excellent proportions, value for the money, and their long options list. At first, they were powered by economical inline sixes and reasonably powerful small-block V8 engines. Later, a wide list of high-performance engines were offered.
For 1965, the Chevelle Malibu was available as a sedan, hardtop, convertible, and station wagon. Around 56,400 were fitted with six-cylinder engine and approximately 95,800 were powered by V8s.
The Malibu models had color-accented bodyside moldings and bright wheelhouse moldings. The Malibu name could be found on the rear fender script. They had ribbed upper and lower cove trim panels, ribbed tailgate lower trim panel on station wagons, hood wind split moldings, and back-up lights located in the rear bumper. The interiors had pattern cloth and vinyl trims. They had an electric clock, a glovebox light, dual-spoke steering wheel, and foam cushioned rear seat.by Daniel Vaughan | Oct 2017
