This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Convertible in Lemonwood Yellow and a equipped with a Turbo-Fire 283 cubic inch V8, was originally built in Baltimore, Maryland. The Malibu offered better trim levels and was just down from the mighty SS396.
It has automatic transmission and power steering, options costing $164 and $84 respectively. Interestingly the original owner didn't pay the $42 required for power brakes.
1966 saw the Chevelle receive a face-lift albeit on the previous frame. We now had forward thrusting front fenders and new, smoother body contours. This new body reflected the "Coke bottle" shape that was gaining popularity during this period.
Chevrolet built 241,500 Chevelle Malibu's for 1966 with 189,300 being V8s. The base price for the convertible with the six cylinder engine was $2586 and $2693 for the V8.
