79 Malibu- Stocker-Stick Shift
 
Hey Guys!

Been working on a stocker build for little over a year now. We came across a 78 malibu that we will be converting to a 79 as you'll see through the photos. The goal will be a k/s-l/s stick shift 305 car. My father and I are building the car in the spare time that we have from the super street car. Hope you guys enjoy the journey as much as we do!

Here is how the car looked the day we picked it up. The body overall was in great shape but the car had been picked over pretty well. You will see in the second photo how we had to remove the typical gbody rust on the frame from the rear axle back

Tranny set in place so we could fabricate the cross member. The malibus of this year have awful stock crossmember design.
Also rear end in place. Don't mind the shims behind the antihop bars, we were told the upper control arms were the right ones for the 12 bolt swap. Wrong
