I have a friend's original '79 White 2 door(1 of 5) that was ordered from GM, but never used as a police car. It has the correct 9C1 frame, 120MPH speedo, tach, heavy duty sway bars. Now has 468 BBC, TH400, 9 Inch with 4.11 gears. It's a project that is very clean and never had a patch panel.

I'm not sure if I should buy it. Are they worth more or less without the original drivetrain?

Hey Dave,
Malibu's haven't really attained collector status as of yet other than some if the special editions (which escape me at this time) and should be left alone, the vast majority end up being Hod Rodded, Customized and Raced and are quite fun to drive, I have two both modified, one much more than the other, value depends on the market in your area and I do see prices going up as they get older, sounds like a good car to me, not to be nosy but what's the asking price?
