    Just a quick hello as a new forum member. Been enjoying my 66 Chevelle Malibu wagon since getting it back on the road. Had to go old school and restored the 283 and powerglide. Added all the comforts of A/C , Power disc brakes, Power steering and restored original interior. Here is the 283 before and after..

    Between Marina Blue and Artesian Turquoise, that would have been a rough choice. But, assuming the blue interior you knocked it out of the park. What a nice car. Oh, and welcome by the way! Lol. Oh and a nice playmate for that white Vette roadster. ‘68-‘70 ish?

    Here is a pic of the 1969 Corvette L46 350/350 roadster that I was building when the Wagon was completed. Built the Vette for the wife to learn to drive a 4 speed.
