We wouldn’t have guessed that the chameleonic character actor John C. Reilly would be a car buff. But, apparently we’d be wrong because he was the owner of quite a beautiful whip. Reilly just auctioned off a 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu for a cool $36,000. And it’s an absolute head-turner boasting a classic design and iconic American muscle car appeal.
Reilly acquired it in 1992 and had the drop-top repainted in Tripoli Turquoise in 2000 after some repairs. The meticulously restored exterior showcases the Chevelle’s sleek lines and distinctive features, capturing the essence of vintage muscle cars. Under the hood, you’ll find a formidable V8 engine mated to a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission that delivers a thrilling driving experience, making this convertible a true beast on the road.
Step inside, and you’ll be greeted by a stylish and comfortable interior that blends classic charm with modern touches. From the plush seats to the vintage-inspired and color-coordinated dashboard, every detail and even roll-up windows, everything has been carefully crafted to preserve the car’s original spirit. Whether you’re cruising down the highway or showcasing it at car shows, this 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Convertible is guaranteed to turn heads and ignite a passion for classic automobiles.
