  1. If anyone is interested, I emailed someone at GM Heritage Center and he sent me this link which shows a book for all 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle's and their options. http://www.gmheritagecenter.com/docs/gm-heritage-archive/vehicle-information-kits/Chevelle/1965-Chevrolet-Chevelle.pdf<o:p></o:p>
  2. Went to O'Reilly's for the 10W30 and wanted an oil filter. The guy behind the counter recommended a Zinc additive for the oil. Is this something necessary for older cars or is it something in general that can be added to improve performance?
  3. I have a couple questions regarding oil and gas. The engine probably took leaded gas and of course there is unleaded offered now. Do I have to add a supplement of lead to a tank of unleaded gas? Also, it is a 6 230ci engine (unfortunately not the 194cid), does that one take 10w 30 oil? One more thing, does anyone have an idea of how much (ball park figure) it costs to have a frame powder coated and the body fixed up and repainted. Tore the interior out and will need a 6 inch patch in the trunk and 7 inch patch on the passenger side floor. Also there is rust around the wheel wells about an inch to two inches. The rest is pretty solid with a couple little dents. Again i am not asking for an exact amount but am interested in what a good restoration could run for the body and frame. Again this is my first project. Thanks for any help.
  4. I want to thank everyone for all the information. I was looking for a car to fix up and this one had plenty of potential. I got it at the auction for $2600. I was told that is a pretty good deal. It was a good start to an inexpensive purchase price for a running car without a lot of rust. H8tulooze, I wasn't able to get on your database. Do you have to have a face book account? Some of the other responses made me feel pretty young. I am only 42 years old and you guys are talking about cars before my time. Thanks for making me feel so young again:) I am going to keep it stock and do it right. It will take me a little longer because of the costs but believe this car deserves it. Any suggestions on restoring, other than the obvious would be appreciated. marlin65, I told my cousin about your information for the 63 Nova and said I was full of chit. He will be helping me with this car. He didn't believe I got this car with a six. Just goes to show how closed minded some can be. (marlin65, hope you were right, bet him $50)
  5. I did take a look at the VIN tag this morning. It is 137675K2046151. I just picked it up this last weekend so I will take pictures of it this weekend. Where would I find other numbers to make sure everything matches? Thanks.
  6. I must admit that I wanted an older car with some power and was willing to do that during the restoration. But I think I have something pretty neat here and have not found anything that exists, which will duplicate the car. I pulled some sheet that states "Chevrolet's Accumulative Production Report of August 31, 1965" and it shows 1,119 were made to these specs. The only thing is if I guy can believe it. Does anyone know if GM has some type of paperwork that can be requested to document the cars build and production numbers?
  7. Hello everyone. I have recently purchase a 1965 Malibu SS convertible 6 cylinder. This will be my first restoration project. The problem I am running into is that no one believes it is a Malibu SS because of the 6. I even asked a restoration garage and he never heard of it. I do have the original bill of sale. This guy had it for the past 49 years and passed away. I got it at his estate auction. Can someone shed some light on this. Also the guy I talked to said I should switch out the engine to a 8 cylinder. Would I be better off keeping everything original or beefing it up? I know there are quite a few 65 Malibus out there, but would this be considered a rare type of vehicle? Thanks
