Definitely between 70 and 72, I would take a punt at it being a 71 with the single headlights.

I have to agree, 1970. The bumper design on the back, to me, gives it away (1970 had squarish tail lights, '71 and '72 round).

I believe it is a 1970 because of the wing windows in the front doors. The "MALIBU" emblem on the fender. And no front corner blinker.

Yep!!it's a 1970!!!! 71 and 72 are the only year with this body style that had the corner blinkers mounted up hi next to the headlights.

How are some of you guys seeing the back bumper tail light openings, and the # of headlights in front? All I see is the side view.
Agree with it being a 70 Malibu, although I didn't realize the 4-door versions had wing windows. (The 2-doors do not). The lack of corner turn-signals on the headlight doors tells me it is not a 71 or 72.

@ Ol'Jim....You are right, as I stated, the corner blinkers on a 71 or 72 are mounted up hi in the corner near the head lights....(Regardless of whether or nor the car has 2 or 4 head lights). As a side note, the hi mount blinkers on a 71 have the bezel with a horizontal divider splitting the blinker into appearing as if it were 2 seperate lights when in actuality it is just one. Where-as the 1972 blinker bezel does not have the horizontal section to it.

The comment I made regarding the taillight above has to do with the bumper profile, which is clear in the image above. On the '71 & '72 models with the round tail lights, the bumper profile is more or less an arrow < shape, with the 'peak' in the center of the profile, where the 1970 with square lights is more or less parallel to the front edge of the bumper.
