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 machines.
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!!!
