Welcome to GBF from Seattle, Wa.
'78 Caballero and '79 El Camino.
I wholeheartedly agree with all the others, she is a beauty. I wonder if being a factory stick shift Malibu car, if that is one of the vehicles commonly referred to as an "Iraqi Taxi". From what I have learned on this site is that many vehicles were built in Canada to be shipped overseas to Iraq for use as taxi cabs, until the Shaw was chased out of Iraq and all of the cars built for taxi service were reassigned to be sold in Canada.
Being a 1980, your's may never have been intended for Iraqi service since the Shaw had been deposed more than a year earlier, and so may be an honest North American use 4spd. There were factory stick shift G-bodies (technically they are A-bodies) in 78-80. My Caballero is a factory stick shift vehicle.
