Black and red are two of the most aggressive colors around, and
this 1962 Chevrolet Biscayne certainly wears them with pride. It's
a true old-school street machine with four-on-the-floor and a 409
big block built by a hot rod master.
This is the car that defined a generation. The '62 not only told
the world the tailfin was dead, but it also signaled that angular
style was the new direction. There's even a terrific crease in the
profile that looks like an arrow always pointing the car forward.
So it already has some forward-thinking speedy style. This one even
wants to subtly let you know it's something extra powerful with the
competition-style American Racing Torq Thrust wheels and a wider
rear set for an awesome stance. Those who might not notice these or
the 409 callouts on the front fender may just see a solid cruiser.
The glossy black paint, clean sheet metal, chrome bumpers, and
classic trim all show well without getting too flashy. And the
pillar-top two-door not only has the cool wraparound rear glass,
but also it has a stronger design preferred for the classic street
A red interior always looks great against the black, and it really
helps to establish the right street machine attitude. A classic
bench seat, deleted rear seat, and simple floor coverings are all
about a low-option and weight-saving setup that the boulevard kings
had back in the day. The classic steering wheel feels grippy in
your hands and the upgraded auxiliary readouts tell you the
essentials you need to know. The one indulgence you might spot is a
retro-style AM/FM stereo. But we bet you already know how to dial
in your real favorite soundtrack using the Hurst floor shifter.
Under the hood is where this one earns its vintage street machine
attitude. After all, the Chevy big blocks were the ones everyone
wanted on a Saturday night back in the day, and this 409 cubic-inch
V8 is so legendary that they write songs about it. It only gets
better when you know this powerhouse was built by Lamar Walden
Racing - someone who has been working on these big blocks since
this Biscayne was new to the streets. That's why this has some of
the best power upgrades like bored .60 over, stroked, 690
high-performance heads, 10.2 compression, a Comp Cams camshaft, new
rods, and topped with a large Edelbrock 750 CFM four-barrel
carburetor. It's an old-school hot rod with an old-school nature
that loves for you to feel the road. But you are always in firm
control of the power thanks to the Muncie four-speed manual
transmission and 12-bolt Positraction rear end.
This Biscayne does a terrific job of giving you that classic
boulevard bruiser kind of feeling. It's true Americana with a true
rumbling big block heart. Call today!!!
