Mine was the 80 model. They looked nice with the Malibu front end.

i would say 73-77, particularly the 76-7 because of the front end. i like the 73-77 because i like that chassis and the styling; Face it, they handle and ride better than the beloved 68-72 series, not to mention the interior, i think, is better.


i also like the 78-87 series due to the smaller size and still excellent styling.


i'm not into the 67-72 too much or anything before that.

Hard for me to pick between the 68/69 and 78-80 when it comes to aesthetics. On an Elky i lean a little towards 78-80.

If we were talking about Malibu's though, 68/69 easily.
