75 Malibu classic in MN

Post by Tree80Tree on Thu Oct 26, 2017 2:16 am

First sorry for pics double posting iPhone isnít being too friendly with posting anyhow. Brief self background got two degrees one for auto and one for heavy med truck and self taught tinkering before hand, Short lived auto mechanic turned to career diesel mechanic here in mn, wife allowed me to purchase a project n just picked this car up not too long ago as a first project car so far love it may not be prtty and not all the fluids stay in it 100% but thatís part of the whole project concept. Anyhow what I picked up and brought me here is a 75 Malibu classic, two owners ago took the engine and bored it and put an externally balanced 400 crank on for a decent 383 stroker setup with a th350 behind it. Has comp cam mutha thumpr in it 650cfm Holley double pumper, edelbrock air gap intake, aluminum roller rockers, heads Iíve looked up but canít remember the castings off the top of my head. Still have to dig into the rear end see what Iím dealing with there. Overall fun car to drive how it is but have a lot of improvements to make. Hoping Iíll find plenty of support and help learning this car too to bottom and getting it setup just right between suspension of the car and piecing together the interior and some mechanical inputs / suggestions

Awesome...another Minnesotan sharing the passion for these cars! Where exactly are you located? I'm in Eagan...and there are others around the metro area and outlying areas.

Welcome aboard sir from another Minnesotan. Here are some pictures of the day I brought mine home and now. Also as Mcarlo77 stated, there are more of us here. This is a small gathering from a couple of months ago of 4 of us at one place at the same time in Eagan.
Good luck with you project.
P.S. There are some real smart a$$ here, so I hope you're not easily offended. †lol

Thanks for the welcomes! And good to know thereís some running around mn too! Mcarlo75 n fasrunr im up in st.cloud, once I know the car more and trust it on trips will definitely have to meetup sometime so far have just stayed in town, know I have some leaks, bearings, and fluids to change / maintance. How is it finding parts for these in mn?

Parts aren't too hard to find around the area thanks to Mcarlo77 and others sir.
When you get it reliable and able to do some traveling, I and others would love to meet up somewhere. Wallyuph and I aren't afraid to drive ours and this past June took a weekend drive to a show in Dakota Il. that Limey invited us and others to attend.

Ok nice good to know I can find parts because lookin online this gen is fairly well discarded for parts / restoration but I honestly like them better than previous years that are overplayed. And definitely down to meet up when I trust it or even if you guys make it up to St. Cloud sometime.
