For sale in out Chicago showroom is this purpose-built 1971 Chevrolet Malibu. Sporting a massive 565 cubic inch Big Block Chevy V8 built around a stout Dart â??Big Mâ? block, this Malibu is ready to thrash. Needless to say, the rest of the driveline is built to handle the punishment. A beefy TH-400 transmission with a manual valvebody gives all the benefits of selecting your own gears, without the headache of sourcing a strong enough clutch. The GM 12-bolt rear eng was fitted with Strange axles and is plenty capable of handling the 925 horsepower dying to burn through the tires.
With a slick coat of Royal Blue paint and the obligatory white stripe laid down about 5 years ago, it still shines great and gets plenty of looks. The interior, while fairly stripped, still has all of the necessities to take you Â¼ mile at a time. An overhead switch panel controls all the engine controls, i.e. cooling fans, ignition, and starter, and an assortment of gauges make sure if something with the engine gets a bit funky, youâ??ll know about it.
Step this monster up to the line, arm the trans-brake, wind up the engine, and blast this rocket down the drag strip at consistent low-10 second passes. Options include: Seat Belts, Racing Wheels, Racing Tires, and a Vinyl Interior. For more HD photos and an HD video of the vehicle running and driving, please contact our Chicago showroom at (708) 444-4488 or [email protected]
