132863 / 1962 Chevrolet Biscayne
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7qw33my How do you take a no nonsense, big block muscle car and make it even more bad ass? You feed its motor twice the amount of fuel through dual quad carburetors, bolt up a heavy duty 4-speed transmission and cover it all in a menacing black and red color combination! Produced at GM's Atlanta, Georgia assembly plant, this 1962 Biscayne was sprayed in GM code 900 Tuxedo Black Magic Mirror lacquer and immaculately maintained throughout its entire life. The car has never seen any significant repairs to its factory equipped panels, and what you see today is a 100% original body. Thanks to a recent high quality frame-off restoration, those straight panels display exceptional alignment under an incredible basecoat/clearcoat shell, and the car looks tough enough to be Sheriff Bufford Pussers transportation of choice to a backwoods gambling bust. As its subtle fender emblems indicate, this Biscayne is fitted with a correct 409 cubic inch big block V8 which has been completely rebuilt to factory specifications and wears a 1962 exclusive 3788068 casting number and a correct dual quad/4-speed exclusive QB suffix stamp. At the top of the engine, a chrome dual snorkel air cleaner pushes air into two correct 3361S Carter 4-barrel carburetors which are bolted between fresh stainless fuel lines, a correct glass fuel bowl and a correct dual quad aluminum intake. At the sides of that intake, correct cylinder heads wear distinctive chrome valve covers with correct "409 turbo Fire" decals; and below that intake, a correct solid lift cam gives the car a brawny, stoplight shaking idle. At the back of the engine, a correct points distributor sends power from a correct coil to AC Delco Packard TV R Suppression wires. And at the sides of the engine, correct factory Exhaust manifolds sit behind a correctly tagged Delco-Remy generator which spins on a fresh V-belt. Behind that professionally rebuilt big block V8 is a correct Borg Warner T-10 4-speed transmission which wears a correct T10 brand and an early 3782212 casting number. That unbreakable transmission sends power to a correctly tagged Posi-traction rear end which is stuffed with earthquake inducing 4.00 Richmond gears and held off the ground by a fully rebuilt double A-arm front and three link rear suspension. Braking is handled by factory correct manual drums at each corner, steering comes courtesy of a correct manual rack; and Exhaust flows through a true dual factory replacement system which is complete with polished down pipes, aluminized tail pipes and new, great sounding mufflers. Above the suspension rust free floorpans are sprayed in satin black paint and all lines, hoses, brackets and fasteners, which were completely replaced at the time of restoration, show little to no weathering. And at the corners of the car, black 14 inch steel wheels wear stainless Chevrolet hubcaps inside of 7.75-14 US Royal Safety 800 redline tires which do their very best to keep the tall 4.00 gears happy. Inside this slick '62 Chevy you'll find yards and yards of correctly restored GM code 876 red which is centered around front and rear bench seats that wear correct vinyl and cloth covers. At the front of the car, a body-matched dash holds a horizontal speedometer, a fuel gauge and a temperature gauge above thin stainless trim and chrome knobs for the cars accessories. And at the sides of the car, simple red door panels are detailed with new red armrests and new chrome handles. Mounted in the center of the dash is a correct radio delete, and mounted to the side of the red steering column is a cool chrome Sun Tach which looks so natural that most casual observers will think it's an OEM piece. Connecting the driver to the road is a correct Biscayne steering wheel which is centered on a flashy, multi-dimensional horn button, and a chrome spaghetti shifter which does a great job of sliding a white cue ball shift knob around the cars bench seat. If you're interested in a high-performance Chevrolet, a killer sleeper, or a great starting point for a vintage race car, this '62 Biscayne is for you!
