Through the early-to-mid Nineteen Sixties, the king of the full-sized Chevrolet world was the loaded Impala. The Bel Air wasn’t fairly as luxurious, however nonetheless had an honest quantity of swank. For the discount-acutely aware car shopper who needed a naked-bones full-size sedan with out plenty of pricey gingerbread, the Chevy Biscayne was a superb selection.
Right here’s a ’sixty two that outlived a lot of the Impalas and Bel Airs, now ending its fifty six-yr journey in a Denver self-service wrecking yard.
Circumstances have been wintry when I discovered this car, however neither snow nor rain nor warmth nor gloom of night time will keep your junkyard courier from his appointed rounds.
This car has the smart-however-not-highly effective 235-cubic-inch pushrod straight-six engine, rated at one hundred thirty five horsepower in 1962. The unique purchaser of this car wasn’t a complete cheapskate, although, as a result of the transmission is the optionally available Powerglide automated as an alternative of the extra reasonably priced three-on-the-tree guide that got here standard.
The completely flattened tires and utterly fried interior point out many years of outside storage previous to coming to this place. This car started its life on the St. Louis Meeting Plant, which was the second-closest-to-Denver GM manufacturing unit constructing full-sized Chevrolets in 1962 (the plant in Arlington, Texas, was a bit nearer).
There’s some rust— not a lot by Midwestern requirements however sufficient to scare away any Colorado restorer who may need thought-about spiffing up a not-very-fascinating Biscayne sedan. A full-sized 1960-1964 Chevrolet two-door on this situation in all probability would have prevented this destiny.
Basic Motors bought 1,424,008 full-sized Chevrolets for the 1962 mannequin yr, 533,349 of which have been sedans, and so this isn’t what you’d name a uncommon and weird car. Nonetheless, it’s too dangerous no one who encountered it earlier than it got here right here was prepared to make it right into a finances cruiser or drag-race car.
There’s no telling how a lot of the USA this car noticed throughout its lengthy life.
