800 Derita Road, Ste. A
You probably were just attracted to this 1961 Chevrolet Biscayne because you though it looked cool and was priced right. Little did you know that this two-door column-shifter has serious stroker V8 power under the hood to maximize the sleeper-style fun.
Chevy really had a great look in 1961. There was curved glass in the front, and the wraparound rear windshield gave you a sporty overhang. Plus, there's the absolutely awesome stylized sheet metal where the profile has a design line that warps around the rear and creates the dipping "V" in the rear panel (an exclusive style element to the '61 Chevys.) The factory-correct Jewel Blue paint, full trim, and chrome bumper are all complete. And they have the look of a well-respected classic with a hint of age. It gives the overall the appearance of a classic someone drove to church every Sunday for six decades. So few people will pick up on the beast within (more on that in a moment.)
Inside is a highly correct interior that continues the sea of blue. The Biscayne offers plenty of full-size comfort to carry family and friends across two rows of wide benches. And there are even comfy cloth inserts on the two-tone. But the best treats are reserved just for the driver. You get the original stylized two-spoke steering wheel, which has power steering and gives you a clear view of the artful factory gauges. It's pure classic motoring, right down to the column shifter. But once you turn the key, the growl signals something upgraded under the hood.
This is a true sleeper for what's in the engine bay. The consignor states it's a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8, and so you get small block weight but the kind of displacement that required a big block in '61. More than just the right size, this has performance goodies like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, and headers that add power while contributing to the sweet sound of the dual exhaust. It also has worthwhile supporting components, too, like upgraded brackets, pulleys, electronic ignition, and a Griffin aluminum radiator. And the three-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over it all.
Here's a great classic body style with some great power upgrades. So don't miss your chance at this affordable and distinct sleeper. Call now!
