The Chevrolet Malibu was a mid-size sporty car built by Chevrolet from 1964 to 1983 and from 1997 to present. However, the first and second generation cars made between 1964 to 1972 are the ones most sought after by the classic car collectors and muscle car enthusiasts.
First generation cars were built between 1964 and 1967. The first Malibu was a top-of-the-line version of the midsize Chevrolet Chevelle. Body styles included a 4-door sedan, 2-door Sport Coupe hardtop, a convertible and a two-seat station wagon.
The Malibu SS was a special edition that was only available as a two-door Sport Coupe. It came as a hardtop or convertible. It came with bucket seats, center console with a shifter for the optional four-speed manual or Powerglide transmissions. New engine gauges and special wheel covers noted the special SS designation. It was offered with any six-cylinder or V8 engine offered in other Chevelles. One popular option was a 300 hp (224 kW; 304 PS) 327 cu in (5.4 L) in 1964. The SS featured a blacked-out grille.
Second generation cars were made between 1970 and 1972. They came with an assortment of 6-cylinder engines and V8s and added an option of a powerful 330 hp (246 kW; 335 PS), 400 cu in (6.6 L) V8 engine.
After 1973 the Malibu got a redesign and was marketed as an entry level version of the Chevelle. The name remained the same, but it ceased to be the best of breed muscle car.
