This 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu convertible is an absolute icon of the American road that also gives you the ultimate wind-in-your-hair experience

It only gets better on a car that has a very cool color combo, a few well-placed upgrades, and proper V8 power under the hood.

This was the first couple of years for the new Chevelle Malibu, and today we see how they ushered in a new era of design that was clean, straight, and quite attractive. This convertible likes to be a solid cruiser. Nice chrome, complete trim, and classic rally wheels give this a stylish appearance rolling down the highway. The paint is an older application, and so it has now matured into a good driver-quality style. It strikes the right balance of a good shine and an overall driver-ready attitude. Plus, the full package is quite attractive with the clean white convertible top in place.

Since the white top looks so good against the teal paint, we’re quite happy to see there’s a full white interior when you take it down. It was more recently redone, and so it looks great on the seats and side panels. Plus, there’s an overall thoughtful sense of style. The exterior teal returns on the door tops, dash, and seatbelts. And the black carpet is the right color to show less dirt in this high-traffic area. So it’s the right cruiser kind of setup. That’s why you also have upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM stereo for better driving music. And the auxiliary readouts and added tach let you know what’s going on under the hood.

The engine bay looks quite nice with the bold orange block radiating from within the middle of the tidy black inner walls. Not only are you upgraded to a 327 cubic-inch V8, but it also inhales deeply with a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. And a large aluminum radiator helps keep the full package running cool. This one feels great out on the road, and that’s helped by easy driving features like power steering, power brakes, and three-speed automatic transmission.
