Currently available here on Craigslist in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is this 70K original mile, 1976 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Nine Passenger Station Wagon survivor the current caretaker is hoping to get $7,999 for. The NADA Guides Online Valuation Tool currently lists their “Low”, “Average”, and “High” retail value range for these wagons as $4,750, $7,125, and $12,800, respectively so the private seller’s asking price is in line with current market expectations.
Chevrolet produced the third generation mid-size Chevelle from 1973 through 1977. Ironically, the 1976 Chevelles earned a billing as “a size whose time has come.” when just two year later GM downsized the A-Body line-up for the 1978 model year.
We loved the current caretaker’s description, so we’re simply reporting here:
“1976 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Wagon nine passenger, yes very long name. This is one clean survivor, I wouldn’t think twice about driving it across country tomorrow. This car led a very well maintained life and shows just 70,000 original miles. It still has two build sheets and all the factory manuals. It has a 350 4BBL V8 with headers and true duals all the way out the rear. It isn’t loud just has a great sounding purrr. It has some nice options such as A/C, rally wheels and a trailer tow package just to name a few. Solid car with driver paint not to be ashamed of with just one little crack in the seat and dash pad (not very noticeable). I get thumbs up everywhere I go. Took it on the Hot Rod Power Tour last, year among other memorable trips, time to pass the torch.”
This appears to be a well-maintained, nicely-optioned driver you can continue having fun with just as the current caretaker did. Good luck with the purchase!
