Im kinda partial to the 64-65 Malibu's myself. Especially the 300 2-door sedans.

The problem with the 64-72 is cost, unless you start with a rusty basket case.

A bargain basement cleanup with a sbc will run 7.00 to 6.50's on a smaller tire consistently...... Used to be a ultra clean silver 82 at Valdosta. Beautiful 28/10.5 car that ran 7.0 with a mild sb. Won a lot too.....

Mine was 3200lbs with aluminum headed small block, lift off hood, poly buckets, no heater, no ac, no radio, no pad under carpet. Still has all glass and steel bumpers, factory bumper brackets (heavy), and bracing in doors (heavy).
