Heath S’s 1967 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Heath S’s 1967 Chevelle

Heath stopped at a garage sale one day to look at a hunting jacket when he spotted this 1967 Chevelle Malibu in the corner of the garage under a cover. He asked the woman running the tag sale if the car was for sale and if so, could he look at it.

Heath took the cover off of the car, and underneath sat a fully restored frame off 1967 Chevelle Malibu. He left the garage sale with the hunting jacket on the passenger seat of the Malibu. He had always wanted one of these, since his father’s first brand new car when he got out of the service was a 1967 Chevelle Malibu.

He takes pride in the fact that it is kept as a Malibu and is not trying to be something that it isn’t. He says that it has all of the features of an SS and then some, along with 4 wheel disc brakes. The engine is currently a fully built and bored 350 with a wicked cam and a 4-speed M22 Rock Crusher.

When he bought the 1967 Malibu, he was also given a drive documenting every step of the restoration from the first day to the last. Every nut, bolt, washer, and has been worked and replaced with new metal. He loves showing it off at car shows alongside his father’s current 1967 GTO. The pair of ‘67s get a fair amount of attention and often win awards as well.

“It’s a father and son thing that we love to do together.”

Heath is currently looking for other ideas and unique parts such as a trunk dress up kit. One day, he plans on putting a restomod chassis under the body.
