DESCRIPTION

1966 Chevrolet Biscayne Tribute is done to celebrate some of those awesome sleeper street machines of the muscle car era. So while you'll enjoy the stock/sleek black exterior and bold red interior, the true draw is the growling big block under the hood and four-on-the-floor.



This is a very desirable generation for the full-sized Chevy. There's a muscle car-like forward leaning front end and plenty of flare over the rear fenders. But this sleeper doesn't exploit that part of its design too much. Instead, the black paint looks like that classic single stage you'd get from the factory. And it has a good gloss like the kind of car your grandmother only took out of the garage for the last 55 years to drive to church. The real story on this one is that it was carefully restored to get that classic L-72 big block look. These were the kind of cars that a few street racers realized they could get Chevy's mightiest motor in a "Brown Bag Special" kind of style. That's why this one was taken from a Bel Air to a proper Biscayne trim with dog dish hubcaps. In fact, the only hints at the beast within are the redline tires and racing flag badges on the front.



They also took time to bring the interior back to true stock. It's a very clean presentation, and quite frankly, there's no better look against the black exterior than a red interior. So people will comment on the time capsule style even before they find out about this car's sleeper status. This would have been a true stripper car back in the day to save every ounce of weight, but today this one has a few of the right pieces to make it nice to driver around town. This includes the full heat/defrost system and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner. Plus, you have all the right pieces you'd get on a street machine, like the column-mounted tach, floor shifter, and proper auxiliary gauges.



The engine bay is home to a very clean and mean powerhouse. So the dark an tidy inner walls funnel all your attention to the bright orange motivator in the middle. This is tagged to look like an L-72 427ci big block, and in fact it's actually a LARGER 454 cubic-inch V8. And the reason this one can carry the legendary look is because it's built to be just as mean. The consignor claims this has a solid lifter cam and 12:1 compression, and this one certainly has the kind of dual exhaust growl and awesome power that affirms a strong build. Best of all, you get to harness all this muscle with the control of the Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. When you look underneath the car, you see the clean style of a solid investment. And they also gave it subtle upgrades to really let make sure you get to enjoy the big power. For example, the tires have the classic redline style, but these are sports Diamond Back radials that hide a wide modern tread. And the rear end was beefed up to a 12-bolt unit with an Auburn limited slip and Moser axles. The result is a car that still has a vintage feel but also gives you added confidence.



The sale comes complete with service manuals and some restoration photos. It's the restored street machine of your dreams, and all you need to do to make it a reality is call today!
