More Door '69 Chevelle with 18K Original Miles (?) in Sleepy Eye-$15K

LINK TO MORE DOOR

Two too many headlights for me...but looks like a cool survivor if it really has just over 18K miles.  I think this would look good in the Chris/Jenny collection!  stirpot

Looks like it would be a nice 3-season daily-driver for someone.
$15k doesn't buy much these days.

Oh that’s nice! I had the same thought as Derek, would be a fun everyday car.

Looks too clean to have turned over, BUT, never say never. 63 years of summer only driving and it could be 118,700...dunno

 If it was an SS, it would be a rusty, gutted shell for that price...cuckoo

Being a hardtop, it's definitely one of the better-looking 4-doors, but the color isn't doing it any favors.

Looks like a good one for the entry-level enthusiast, or as a 3-season daily.

I kinda like the color combo actually.  Especially that sexy black pin stripe going down the side.  razz

I'd have to get rid of the white letter tires though and find some old skool white walls to finish off the more door look.

I'd go the other way and try to spiff it up a little with some 15x7 ralley wheels or a period looking mag, or even "downgrade" to some color matched steel wheels and dog-dishes.

Taking those same wheelcovers off was the very first thing I did to my Malibu. I don't even have pictures of it with them on it. When I took pictures at the time, I put dog-dishes on in their place.

That's funny Derek.  On my '71 Malibu in high school in the late 70's...I took off the Malibu hubcaps (very similar to the 69's) and swapped them for my sister's 70 Pontiac Tempest hubcaps that had that 'five spoke' look. I didn't care that the centers said Pontiac on them because I thought they looked cooler going down the road.

I guess as hot rodders we just can't leave things alone.  laughing

I thought 68 was the last year for wing windows?

More doors and Caminos and maybe wagons still had vent windows.

2dr hardtop and convertible are the only models that didn't have vent windows after '68.

All 4-doors, wagons, and el caminos had vent windows all the way through '72
2dr sedan had vent windows in '69 (no 2dr sedan available 70-72)

the same also applies to Buick/Olds/Pontiac A-bodies, except they had 2dr sedan (with vent windows) through '72
