The First-Generation Chevy Chevelle Malibu was a top-line subseries of the mid-sized Chevelle from 1964 to 1967. Malibu’s were generally available in a full range of body styles including a four-door Sedan, two-door Sport Coupe Hardtop, Convertible and Station Wagon.

The Malibu SS was available as a two-door Sport Coupe or Convertible and added bucket seats, center console with optional four-speed manual or Powerglide transmission, engine gauges and special wheel covers. It was available with any six-cylinder or V8 engine offered in other Chevelles - with the top option being a 300 hp 327 ci for 1964.

Enjoy! Mario.

Mario, another great topic. I like most people love Chevelle's and I have owned a number of them. 1968 300 series coupe 327 eight (1978-1980). 1967 300 series sedan 350 eight (1980-1982) and a 1970 300 series sedan 250 six (2004-2009). Interesting is that all my Chevelle's were the entry level 300 series and those are impossible to find now. Everything seems to be fake SS models and Malibu's these days. I came within an inch of buying a 1965 Malibu SS hardtop with bucket seats, console (Power Glide), blue on blue, odd 230 six and all original and mint condition. I hesitated and lost out. My brother Mike has owned a 1968 SS hardtop 350 eight, a 1969 Malibu sedan 307 eight and a 1971 Malibu hardtop 350 eight. Mario, the 1966-1967 is the second generation. Cheers.

Hi George, glad you liked the post. I remember when the first Malibu's came out I really wanted one. I was just out of high school. They were one of the hottest cars along with the Mustang before the Camaro was introduced for model year 1967.

Although the 66-67 Chevelles had a body change they are actually considered 1st Gen.

Here's my source:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Chevelle

First generation (1964–1967)

Second generation (1968–1972)

Cheers! Mario

My favorite early Chevelle is the 65 Malibu. I came close to buying one back in 2009 at a car show. But I picked up my 67 Impala later on that year so it worked out. Cheers, Mario.

Mario, speaking of your 67 Impala. I heard through the grapevine (Rob), that you sold your 67 Impala. What is up with that. Have you replaced it with anything. Cheers.

Yes I did. After having it for 14 years I got a great offer and decided to sell. Since I downsized 3 years ago from my house with a 2 car garage to a Condo I had to rent a garage for the car. Just too much.

I will go to the car shows with my brother in his 68 Vette and we get to pal around together. He garages it by me privately and I get to see it often. He also gave me a set of keys to use when I want.

The 67 Impala went to a younger couple with 3 children and they fell in love with it so it's in good hands. Just Time to move on. Cheers! Mario

Mario- Thanks for the great post, I have owned many chevelles. I was inspired to order my first one, by the look of a Pontiac GP. So on the first day of the chevy dealer appearance, Sep 26, 1963 I ordered a Maroon SS, w / 220 HP 283, three spd. $2700. Took delivery Oct 30, 1963. A 327 / 4 spd was not available at the time. I have had many discussions about motors, so that is the facts. You can see the car on my chevelle / chevy post. Thanks again, Mario

Hi Don, 64-65 Chevelles are my favorites. They were super on the 1/4 mile tracks here. You had a great early Chevelle and I will take a look at your post. Cheers, Mario
