I’d heard rumors that these exist, but someone posted in one of the FB Malibu groups that they’d got one. Still skeptical this isn’t a transplant but then I was skeptical of the mythical Monte SS at first too....

it was a closed group so I can’t just share it but I’m gonna repost the pix.

to be clear: I know NOTHING else about it, it’s not mine, etc etc.

That is cool! We should have 69HurstOlds run the fan shroud number and see what comes up. The speedometer and trunk sticker suggest that this is the real deal.

Um, that is a points distributor. It should have the big factory, coil in cap HEI. Obviously someone added the chrome but why would someone dump the HEI? Brazil had a SEFI 250 Straight 6 factory in their cars till 98.

Why assume that it would have an HEI on an export/Brazilian built car?

Other oddities are the orange engine paint, though it coul be (likely is) a rebuild/repaint

Gold with a red interior :(

Fender skirts :( :(

Survivor cars generally have red interiors in my unofficial opinion.

I have come across something about 250 powered A's years back. My freshman year room mate in college was from Mexico & was talking about cars down there cause of my Monte. He brought up the straight six cause he thought it was weird cause I has a V6. I wish I could remember everything from that time but being 27 & a half years ago details are forgotten. Now I still remember him talking about that just beacuse of my V6. I also remember seeing pics of a Mexican Elky with a 250 with that same shroud. This sighting was in my early days od searching the inner web. When I was at Ft. Bliss I remember seeing newer Dodge Ramchargers with Mexican plates in El Paso so that is proof to me that the Mexican market is different.
Why does it have the turbo heat shield on the heater case?
My heater box has one & it came out of a 200 V6 Malibu & seen several other non turbo cars with the shield. Maybe it depends on the assembly batch if they had it or not.
