Hello i have myself a 76 malibu that i got as my second car. Im a muscle car guy. the first time i saw it the thing looked like a fat slow car. but as i got to driving it everyday it grew to my project car that i love.


The Dude:
I live in a area with no other G3ERS around. and i drive mine EVERYDAY. i grew up around my dads shop. 40 fords,55,57 chevys and a few mopars that i wont say have been in that shop but from day one a red 66 Pontiac GTO with a 455 (now a 462) T56 trans and 4.10 gears was my dads car. I love that car.

The car: a old ladys church going car till 88' when it started its hibernation till i bought it. still wearing its STs on tis 8inch rallys. I bought a almost rust free car for 5500 bucks. only 100,000 miles. funny part is it was sold at the chevy dealer in my hometown.


What it will be:
Im a muscle car guy not a hot rod or a low rider guy so i picked up a 650 holley, a performer plus cam and lifter set, a intake, a new rearend, (it had a bolt in axle ponitac) 3.42 gears and a posi. the rearend, its gears and posi are in but the rest will be for a cool weekend.


Thanks for all the help and the aid of a great group of people.

My Monte Carlo has an Oldsmobile rear as well. Remember when you need axle bearings they are different and press on

Looks like you are hooked on a G3 ! I would prefer an Olds rear if it has press-on axle bearings. The Chev rear with bearings running on the axle wasn't a good idea at all. Had to put an axle-saver bearing/seal combo in my Malibu. I had to scrap one rear end because the bearings wore into the axles, and the housing too.

Great job. I'm sure everyone considering the same conversion would appreciate pics of the brackets you made for the seats & measurements if avail. Olds cutlass console? Very nice!

to do the swap i lined the outer front hole and moved the seats to the dents in the floor to mount the seats. And for the console i had to cut the tabs off the front of the console top to fit the whole thing under that dash.

And this monday ill have new exhaust on.

Ill use this thread to tell what im working on....
Right now i have a goodwrench 350 block being bored and decked to 383 and im going to put on a set of 190cc Pro Comp alum. heads, performer plus cam and to top it off a performer intake and a 650 holley. I think that this will be a good tourqey motor that i can drive to SIUE and back everyday.

also!!! Im going to put a 700r4 with a megashifter in it so i can still get 12 mpg.

I also cut a piece of alum. to use as a filler for my new gauges when i buy them.

Nice car! my 76 malibu that I have had since 94 was that colour combo, I have been trying to decide on what colour combo to go with.I think after looking at your car original might be best. It has a really crappy black paint on it now, and will be sent to be repainted in the spring.

Thanks Graham
