Chevrolet Biscayne

1964 Chevrolet Biscayne

The Chevrolet Biscayne was a series name of automobile produced by Chevrolet, a division of General Motors, in the United States from the 1958 through 1972 model years. Save for 1958, the Biscayne was the least expensive model of the Chevrolet full-size car range which included the Del Ray (1958 only), Bel Air (1952-1976), Impala (1958-1985, 1992-1996, 2000 to present) and Caprice (1965-1996). Biscaynes were primarily targeted to the fleet market, although they were also available to the general public. Throughout much of the 1960's, Biscaynes were available with optional high-output big-block V8 engines and 4-speed transmissions with low-ratio final drives. Original examples of these high-performance cars are highly sought after by collectors today.
