I own a 1976 4 door Malibu Classic... her name is Betty Boop! She is awesome too... hot red, and all I have left to do is carpet and dash on the interior, then paint exterior! ALL original... got her with 40K miles on it 5 years ago. One owner, and had been sitting in estate status for 16 years :-) Great deal... FREE!

My question: I have ordered carpet two times for this car, and they always come in 2 pieces that don't fit! I am being told by my interior guys it should come in one piece, does anyone know where I can get this ONE piece from?

I have had a four door classic Chevy Malibu 1976 for over a year. It is a nice car with some rough spots on the outside. Could someone tell me what I could sell it for in today's economy? It drives nice and smooth.

Everything works on it, and the interior is great!

Any help most appreciated.

WOW!! I had the same '76 bright lime green with white vinyl interior.

The body rusted off it, but the motor ran forever.

All you have to do is Google the car and be surprised. I've had a 76 Malibu Classic for over 30 years, restored several times, and I'm having it restored to showroom condition. Right now, not had much of a problem finding parts, and it does seem to be getting easier.

I had a new Silver 75, and many years later have a 70 Malibu with air. The 70 has every part available by mail, and is a great car as an even better alternative.

I have also been trying to buy a local, one owner, 70 convertible, all original one, for over 2 years. It's not an SS, but it's a convertible. I bought my mother a 2002 white Malibu with no issues as well. Bodies have changed, but not the interest in them.

Jerry H... what companies sell parts for the 76 Malibu? I can't really find much online.

Because it's a figure of speech. Apply some common sense.

I am looking for the same parts wheel well trim, front and rear, for a 1976 Malibu Classic. Did you have any luck in finding them?

Sincerely, Robert.

Here it is March 2015. Are there any enthusiasts still out here looking for 1976 Malibu Classics?

Many manufacturers are starting to finally make after market parts. Still, some of the parts are extremely hard to find and are becoming very expensive.

I'm glad that years ago I started saving as many salvage parts as I could find. I have a whole storage closet full of parts. I do not have any wheel well trim. I have many other interior and exterior parts for sale should anyone be looking for parts.

Just send me an email at testpilot61@yahoo.com, describe what you're looking for, and I will let you know if I have a part for you.

All the best to everyone. These forgotten Chevelles are finally starting to gain favor and respect, which will only cause prices to increase.

The 1973-1983 period represents the "Nader" (pun intended) of the history of the GM A-body.

Also, your post sounds an awful lot like an advert.
