1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu

Cody first set eyes on his 1969 Chevy Chevelle Malibu when he was 12. His neighbor had it for sale and his dad eventually helped purchase it for him. When the vehicle was purchased it was gray with black primer – Cody worked on restoring it to the current paint color Hams Blue with White Stripes. The body of the vehicle is in near mint condition. The engine has the original small block chevy 307 turbo fire and there are only 57,000 original miles on the vehicle. The Malibu sports new tires and wheels. Cody and his wife love driving the car around as it still turns many heads.
