A 1967 Chevelle Malibu Convertible which will be offered at No Reserve on Saturday is one of the most interesting sales at the Auburn Spring Auction this weekend. (Click here to read the description by Auctions America.) Cars On Line.com is on the grounds of the Auburn Auction Park in Auburn, Indiana today as Auctions America, one of America’s premier auction companies, is holding its flagship event. We are previewing some of the cars which will be sold here this weekend.
Our photo journalist covering the Auburn Spring Auction is Bob Boberg of eClassicAutos.com. He spotted this 1967 Chevelle Malibu Convergtible at the preview yesterday. It will be Lot # 792, offered at No Reserve and scheduled to be running across the auction block on Saturday. The value of this car is estimated at $15,000 to $20,000 by Auctions America. This is one of the more affordable offerings at the auction.
This Bolero Red example is a popular convertible model which is equipped with a 283 ci, 195-hp V8 Turbo-Fire engine that is mated to an automatic transmission. The white soft-top is power operated; additional equipment includes Rally wheels, AM radio; power steering and brakes. Unlike may of the higher priced Chevelles in this auction, this one is reported to be in need of restoration; a most worthwhile endeavor for a mid-‘60s Chevy convertible. The auction report tells us that it is a driver class car. With its relatively low purchase price, the new owner should be able to afford making a few mechanical and interior upgrades to turn this into a very nice drop top cruiser.
Bob took a look at this car. He described it as a low to average number three condition car. Here is what he reported from the auction grounds: “From my initial look at this car, it needs a complete restoration, but it appears to have a fairly solid body. It looks to be mostly original without any modifications. I am including photos that show some of the cars imperfections.”
