Actor John C. Reilly, known for his roles in films like Gangs of New York, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers, and being the voice of Ralph in Disney’s Wreck It Ralph, is selling his personal collector car on Bring a Trailer – A summer-ready 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu convertible. Reilly has owned this Malibu for decades and decided it was time for the car to have a new home. This car has been well maintained and even has some movie and TV credits to its resume.
According to Bring a Trailer, Reilly purchased the vehicle in 1992. By 2000, the car underwent a refurbishment that involved light body work to its quarter panel and refreshing its Tripoli Turquoise exterior paintwork. This Chevelle Malibu features a 307ci V8 engine mated to a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission and rides on 14-inch steel wheels wrapped in Ironman RB-12 NWS thin-whitewall tires. So, it’s not exactly a street light brawling muscle car, but it is a baritone boulevard cruiser. A fantastic choice for no-rush drives on nice weather weekends.
Features include a black convertible top, rubber floor mats, vintage blue California license plates, a trunk-mounted subwoofer with an Alpine cassette stereo, and a six-CD changer. Odometer, and listing, say the car has 46k miles. Lastly, the listing states that this 1968 Chevelle Malibu has appeared in several film and TV projects like being used as a picture car in HBO’s Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty. At the time of this writing, the high bid on the Bring a Trailer online auction for this car is $29k, with four days left.
