The 04 model line as a complete change over from the 03...little if any of the exterior parts will fit the 03 Malibu....if you referring to engine.....would say the same applies as I beleive they went to a different engine as well..but could be wrong there.......what exactly are you looking for here....

I have A 04 CLASSIC. has a 2.2 ecotec engine and the same body style as the 03 malibu. everythign is the same. it is not like the new 04 malibus. these were used for fleet and private use.

unaware of an 04 Classic Malibu...so cant be too much help for you.....dont quite understand why there would be a "special" 04 model year Classic and a separate 04 new production malibu...so have to take your word on it....good luck

GM has done that over the past few years. Basically if a vehicle is produced withing X months of the 1st of the year, it can be pushed to the next model year. So this year in 07 you will see Sierra Classic Pickups and the associated Chevy "classic" pickups along with the "new" body style.

Hey everyone, i own a 1999 malibu, it has a 3.1 L v-6 engine, and ive stumbled upon a supercharger for this engine. is it a good idea to purchase and install this supercharger. keep in mind that its a front-wheel drive, so ive been told the drive terrain will be under enormous stress with such a dramatic power increase. can anyone here help me?
and also, soes anyone know where i might find a custom speedometer cluster for my car?

If they manufacture a supercharger for your Malibu, I'm sure your engine would be able to handle it, of course there are a lot of variables (mileage, location, etc.) that come into play but I'm sure the fuel management setup is conservative.
The only issue I foresee with a supercharger setup is your automatic transmission, the engine can handle it but I'm afraid your transmission will be destroyed with time. The item that always breaks in the transmission is the torque converter, you might want to find a beefier unit or a way to reinforce it.
Besides that, have fun modding!
