Five Months Gone: 1977 Chevrolet Malibu 17K Miles – STILL $16,995

Apr 2021 | Classifind Cut, Malaise Monday

April 15, 2021 Update – Two months after we assumed this 17K original mile had sold due to its expired Craigslist ad, the private seller just proved us wrong by relisting their Malibu Classic.  In their latest listing, the private seller is back to the $16,995 asking price they first listed in November 2020.

February 15, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” unless we come across a new listing in the future.

January 9, 2021 Update – We just came across a new listing for this extremely low mileage ’77 Malibu we first featured in mid-November.  In their latest listing, the private seller lowered their asking price by $1,000 to $15,995.

Putting together our Malaise Monday posts rewards us from the perspective that we tend to find the most low-mileage survivor cars out of any of our other daily categories.  Our latest example is this 1977 Chevrolet Malibu Classic two-door hardtop with less than 17,500 original miles originally listed in November 2020 and now relisted here on Craigslist in Peabody, Massachusetts (remember, that’s pronounced Pee-Bo-Dee!) with extensive original documentation an asking price of $16,995.  The Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms that ask is likely a bit too optimistic as it’s well this guide’s current #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $12,550.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“1977 Chevrolet Malibu Classic was purchased new in Ephrata PA in March of 1977. Finished in Dark Green with fawn Green interior and White Landau vinyl top make this Malibu a very sharp-looking vehicle of a bygone era. With only just over 17,000 original miles its equipped with a 305 V8 engine, auto trans, power steering and brakes, rally wheels with radial tires, and tinted glass. Documentation includes; original window sticker, warranty booklet, original owner’s manual, dealer brochure, service records, and copies of titles since new. You would be hard-pressed to find a Malibu in this condition and at a reasonable price.”
