VERY ATTRACTIVE CRUISER! 350 V8 WITH TH350 AUTO TRANS, ULTRA LEATHER INTERIOR!
Are you one of those guys who likes being a little different than everyone else? Someone who appreciates authenticity and honesty? Then perhaps this 1964 Chevrolet Biscayne 2-door sedan deserves a closer look. Low key and a little unusual, it's not another Impala SS clone but rather a clean and somewhat unusual classic Chevy with just the right appeal to a guy who is sick of Roman Red.
The results are still pretty darned impressive. The light yellow paint looks pretty darned close to the factory's code 943 Goldwood Yellow (it was originally Ermine White) and will truly stand out among all the red, white, and black Impalas that you see at every show. Underneath that handsome paint, you'll find some very straight sheetmetal that only serves to emphasize the clean, chiseled lines of the freshened '64 Biscayne. These cars were particularly attractive in profile, where the no-nonsense look and slightly rounded rear window give it a look that's distinct from the Impala hardtop. There are still those handsome Biscayne emblems on the quarter panels, but as the base model, the Biscayne didn't get a lot of shiny stuff and we have to admit we like the clean look. Of course, there are two taillights per side, not three like the Impala, and the classic '64 Chevy grille is one of the best-looking details of the decade. Add in some shiny chrome bumpers, taillights lenses with blue dots, and the deck lid-mounted antenna and you have a car that stands out without making a big fuss about it.
The beautiful interior offers a variety of textures and materials that should be busy but instead look fantastic. Black ultra-leather seating surfaces work with pleated door panels to add even more interest everywhere you look, and they've added embroidered crossed-flag emblems on the seat backs for a custom look. Instrumentation covers the basics, so there's a Moon Eyes tach on the steering column, right where it belongs. There's also a fat 3-spoke steering wheel that's vaguely OEM-looking but has a much grippier rim. There's also a shiny Hurst Quarter-Stick shifter for the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, and that alone gives the interior a racy look. The original AM radio still lives in the center of the dash, so nothing looks too modern or out of place. The trunk is nicely finished with an authentic mat set and spatter-finish paint that looks great.
A 350 cubic inch V8 provides reliable, smooth power for the easy-cruiser and delivers enough punch to make it fun to drive even in traffic. The engine bay is accurately finished with fresh Chevy Orange paint on the block, Edelbrock finned valve covers, and a matching air cleaner assembly helps with the look. Aside from the extra cubes in the engine and the 4-barrel carburetor, it's not too far from the way it might have been originally, and still carries cast iron exhaust manifolds, a single reservoir master cylinder, and a thick radiator up front to keep it cool. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission is linked to the original rear end, so it's a pleasant highway car and a fresh Flowmaster dual exhaust system rumbles happily from behind. I wouldn't call it restored underneath, but it's extremely clean and it sits just right on 15-inch Torque Thrust wheels and staggered 225/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear blackwall radials.
1964 Chevys are popular for a lot of reasons, but we think you'll find this one is popular simply because it's not like all the others. Call today!
