1968 Chevelle Malibu Barn Find Still in Storage, Flexes Mysterious Everything

The 1968 Chevelle was part of the second-generation series offered for model years 1968 to 1972, and just like before, the Malibu was the top-of-the-range configuration available for purchase.

This obviously makes the Malibu one of the most sought-after versions alongside the SS (which in 1968 became a standalone series called SS396), and the example we highlight today is definitely worth a look.

As you can see in the photos here, this Chevelle is a barn find, but what’s even more important, it can be your barn find. In other words, you can be the one pulling the car from storage and giving it a thorough cleaning to figure out if it’s worth restoring or not.

The car is likely still parked in the garage where it was found, but unfortunately, the Facebook seller provides only very little information about the car. So for example, we only know the Chevelle comes with a 283 (4.6-liter) engine, but this one is said to be blown, so it’ll require massive fixes before it can start once again. The unit is mated to a 2-speed transmission.

The seller hasn’t shared any info on the amount of rust on the car, and the mileage is currently unknown, so for such details, you’re recommended to reach out to them using the contact details shared on the page above.

It’s hard to determine the current condition of this Chevelle from the photos included in the Facebook post, especially because it’s covered in dust. At first glance, the body doesn’t seem to be all wrecked by rust, though. Of course, given that we’re not getting any glimpse inside, there’s a chance the rust ruined the floors and the trunk, so make sure you seek more info in this regard.

How much is such a Chevelle Malibu worth? The Facebook seller says $9,000, which without a doubt sounds a little ambitious given the lack of details, but you should be able to check out the car live in Moses Lake, Washington.
