1965 Chevrolet Malibu Super Sport
The Chevrolet Malibu was introduced in 1964 and was, until 1978, a sub series of the Chevrolet Chevelle. In 1978, the Malibu, named after the famous California city, became its own model. Malibu’s were generally available in a full range of bodystyles including a four-door sedan, two-door Sport Coupe hardtop, convertible and two-seat station wagon.
The Malibu SS (Super Sport) was available only as a two-door Sport Coupe, hardtop or convertible. Added features for the SS were bucket seats, center console (with optional four-speed manual or Powerglide transmissions), engine gauges and special wheelcovers. Engines offered were any six cylinder or V8 engine offered in the Chevelles.
For 1965, Malibus and other Chevelles received new grilles and revised tail sections and had the exhaust pipes replaced, but carried over the same basic styling and bodystyles from 1964. The Malibu and Malibu SS models continued as before with the SS featuring a blacked-out grille and special wheelcovers.
This car is owned by a private collector from Ventura County. It is a highly authentic and original Malibu Super Sport. Note the window sticker detailing the options for this car, and its MSRP of $3,547.39.
