About Chevy Malibu

For some, hearing the word "Malibu" conjures up images of sunny California beaches, but for others it suggests an automotive icon. Since 1964, the Chevy Malibu has been a staple vehicle in American culture. Some of the first very Chevrolet commercials featured the classy-looking Malibu, with its boxy body and low-riding rear wheel well. The company made many different versions of the car, including some convertibles. The original Malibus were actually a top-line sub series of the Chevrolet Chevelle before they spun off into their own line and were eventually discontinued in 1983. A revival in 1997 brought this mid-sized cultural icon back to the masses. If you're not interested in classic cars, more recent incarnations such as the 2012 Chevy Malibu are great family vehicles. Shop eBay's reliable sellers to find not only the car, but plenty of Chevy Malibu parts, both new and used, and all the accessories you'll need. And if you're wondering: yes, the Chevy Malibu was named for the sunny bit of paradise along the California coastline.
