Well the owner doesn't want to respond to messages so this one is on the back burner for now. BUT....possibly a blessing in disguise as a 1979 Malibu with a 305, A/C, and a 4 SPEED MANUAL just appeared last night locally for $2,500. I am hoping to go look at this one ASAP. Stay tuned!

That's awesome. Could be a blessing in disguise. Especially a 4 speed car. Nice build project.

You might want to look at the door bottoms. Doors for a wagon are pretty hard to find. Rusty door bottoms would kill the deal for me no matter what the price is.

I hope this one pans out for you. It sounds promising. Just look it over thoroughly. The less rust, the better. Also keep in mind that parts are getting harder to find for these cars. Good luck!

Come on bro, you want me to give up the location of the unicorn?:ROFLMAO: J/K...I'm in lower NY, you? The Malibu was located on Long Island. That guy was tough to get a hold of as well via FB messenger. Took him 3 days of me messaging him to finally answer and then he said that two people were coming yesterday morning to look at it. One offered him $2700 and the other $2900. He said if I could beat it it's mine. Well I couldn't make it down there the night before at the last minute so I lost out on that. The original one I was interested in, the 1981 Lemans, I finally figured out where it was and called the guy. While he still has it listed on FB, he doesn't want to sell it now. I guess I can't win. There's a 1980 Malibu with a 355 and a four speed (not sure if it is original or not)available nearby as well. I may take a look at that. It's obviously not an all original car but probably worth a peek. He's asking $7,500 on CL.

HAHA...come one we all don't NEED any of the million projects we have! I'm a former Queens/LI resident so I get it even though I was in Nassau County. This car was in Bay Shore. It sold rather quickly and would of been even quicker if the guy would have answered my messages sooner.
