1979 Chevrolet Malibu

Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to present this 1979 Chevrolet Malibu 5.3 LS! This ride has been tastefully customized with a lot of high end parts and paint!

Under the hood of this 1979 Malibu street cruiser is a 5.3 LS-based V8. To simplify installation and future maintenance the factory intake was swapped to a more correct looking carburetor style intake/fuel system. What looks like a carburetor is actually Holley fuel injection! This combo seems to be the perfect combination of LS performance, but with some old school tricks!

This vehicle was purchased by the current owner for Temecula, CA five years ago, and had much of the work seen here done professionally. The paint and body was done by a professional shop, and much of the mechanical appears to be correctly done as well.

Some additional goodies include custom exhaust, 890 lift camshaft, heavy duty valve springs, Moser front springs, rear air shocks, 3.73:1 posi-traction, pro-built transmission with 3,200 RPM stall converter, and 4 core-electronically-cooled-aluminum radiator.

This 1979 Chevrolet Malibu 5.3 LS is offered by the St. Louis sales staff and can be seen in full detail on our website. Our listing all include 100+ HD photos and a detailed video!
