1962 Chevrolet Other Additional Info:

This 1962 Chevrolet Biscayne has that great classic cruiser look. But as you dig deeper, you'll find a ton of terrific investments in upgrades, like the enhanced V8 power, overdrive transmission, upgraded suspension, and comfy A/C interior. So this is a true driver's classic.

The '62 Biscayne was the kind of car that announces a new era in styling. Tailfins were dead, and the '60s were going to all about sharp styling. It includes the dual creases in the hood, pointed rear overhangs, and dual pleats that run the full length of the car. Brightwork was still a priority in this era, and so the bumpers and trim look great. And the factory-correct Ermine White shows all of this off crisply. In fact, the most curved parts of the car are the windshield and rear glass. It's this kind of cool style that makes it instantly understandable why they would make so many upgrades to make this one a great driver's car. While you'll see more investments as you read on, this also gives a nice hint that it's something special with the lowered stance on competition-style American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.

A red interior always looks great against the white, but this one is a cut-above. They took their time to restore this with new carpeting, door panels, and headliner. And not only do the seats have a fresh feeling, but also there is a removable cup holder center console any time you want a more individual feeling. Other well-done upgrades include a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and cold-blowing air conditioning. Even with all these modern additions, you still get that classic tingle whenever you slip behind the classic dual-spoke steering wheel and gaze at the factory gauges with ultra-wide speedometer.

This car was born in the dawn of the small block era, but they never had one as large as this 350 cubic-inch unit offered from the factory. Plus, this V8 has been enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and Hedman long tube headers that add to the power while also contributing to the sweet sound of the dual exhaust. And as you look through the engine bay, you're going to see plenty of great supporting components that tell you this was a thoughtful driver's build. It includes the CPP brake booster, new steering box, HEI ignition, and an aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. It makes for a strong and powerful total package. Making the most of this added power is the added confidence of a Ridetech Street Grip Suspension front and rear. Plus, power steering, front disc brakes, and a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive makes this a classic you can enjoy near or far.

As you look over this whole car, you can see quality investments that make it great for all occasions. So if you love a classic you can really enjoy, call today!
