Looks like a pretty decent car for the money, even with the 6 cyl and 3 on the tree.

138 SS tags,does he mean vin and cowl?  20k to restore, then 5k for a 396, plus 10k.  Looks to be a fake SS for  $35K. Mitch had a much better 327 Malibu for sale in the past.  Looks to be a 5-6k car to me.

I think the seller is being straight up that this is a Malibu and not an SS car.  His comment about having a 138 tag is a little strange that I think he's offering it up if someone wanted to retag the car, which I don't think is legal.  headscratch

 

In my opinion, the days of $5-6K Chevelles are long gone, especially for one that's complete like this one.  I agree $10K is too much, but I would think no lower than $8K in today's market.  Just my two cents.

I've seen the tags offered before, usually on ebay or some craig's-list for $3k-$5K, there are ways to tell if its a fake such as the frame vin. If there was minor body work that might be a different story. Could be a fun driver.  For a guy like Mitch, maybe?  He did give up on his 66 malibu just about a year ago and I think he was offering or sold in the the $8K range with a 327, 4 sp, buckets, (L79 build maybe).  Car  has been for sale a couple of time before.  Here is I think a real SS with NOM I think will bring in the $40K + range.

The Malibu I had was very solid, but basically a basket case, needing assembly. It was a 327 powerglide with factory buckets and console. Would have been a super restoration. It sold for $7,000.
This one is a driver as is, but the 6 cylinder isn't appealing to many. If it truly is a minimal rust AZ car, I would be tempted to buy it at $7,000 and replace the 6 with a small block, or heaven forbid, this is a prime candidate for the popular LS update.

Advertising 138 tags and title to go with isn't a crime in itself, as they may be just "collector" pieces, but we all know the intent behind the offer, which IS illegal to swap.

 Accurate reflection of the price being too high.

If he waits long enough, someone will come along and pay that...rolleyes
