As shiny as its showy golden color is its role and meaning to its owner being the first car that gave so many experiences of joy and excitement in the road. This 1972 Chevrolet Malibu is a treasured possession Kent have driven for around 38 years and still be driven for more years to come.
Kent bought the Malibu in 1978 when he was 15 years old and was the third owner of it. Through the years he took care of it as his daily driver. It was then 2011 when he started doing work on it and featured below is what he ended up with.
It now sports a shiny golden look with the flat black color in the roof, shaker hood and some parts in its rear. The gold and black combo is a true beauty and is the same color as the one’s it originally had.
In the inside, new seat covers, carpet and headliner were installed while everything else is stock.
The engine isn’t stock though and was already replaced by a Chevy 383 stroker motor with 450 hp.
The Malibu is a representation of Kent’s journey through the years. It’s what brought him to places that helped him grow and be the man he is now and it’ll surely have its place in his garage.
