Trimmed in black vinyl, the interior features an aluminum-center console between the front seats, Malibu SS badging on the passenger side and the original radio that works but will need to be hooked up.

During the restoration, replacement suspension components were adding, including new bushings and power front disc brakes.

The original 283cid V8 engine is linked to an aftermarket 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and was factory rated at 220 horsepower. To hear the engine run, see the video below:
