1977 Chevrolet Malibu Classic Landau 355 small block Chevy from North America
Stock 305 and TH350 were pulled and replaced with a 355 SBC that has been built up. Tranny has been strengthened and stuffed with a B&M shift kit.
The body is straight, no rust, except for the sail panels and area around the rear window.
Interior will be fixed, front end needs to be aligned, and wheels and tires must be replaced.
Bought from a friend last year for $850.
I want this car to be my ultimate hot rod. Loud and fast. I want it to scare little kids, and make old people swear at it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Sounds like you're on your way. I had a 77 Monte Carlo Landau with a 350/TH350 in it. It wasn't evil, but it would scare little kids and make the elderly shiver.
But it was sky blue with a baby blue landau; not evil, but mean. I put nearly 150,000 on it in the time I had it, bringing the total to somewhere around 240k.
The engine and tranny were great, as was the interior, but it was a Minnesota car, so it rusted out. I sold it for 60 bucks when the engine started to fall out from bad frame rails. Not mounts, at the time mounts were 40 bucks for this car, but the rails weren't worth fixing at the time.
The guy I sold it to was going to demo it, but I saw it later, painted white with new body work. He restored it.
