Debuting in the year 1958 and lasting till 1972, the Biscayne was a part of Chevrolet’s sedan fleet that included the Bel Air, Impala, and Delray. It was originally created to be a family sedan carrying a low-cost price tag, with the main ideas behind the car being transportation, room, convenience, comfort, and no extra-cost features. These factors led to the overwhelming majority of Biscaynes being purchased by families due to practicality. Fast forward to today’s car market, and the Chevrolet Biscayne is seen as one of the more desirable cars to use as a foundation for their custom build. With new Biscayne customs hitting the market, it’s hard to compare them to the one being offered here. Given a no-expense-spared build from start to finish, this 1960 Chevrolet Biscayne can be considered one of the most incredible examples built.

A front runner in the Pristine Collection of Eric McConnell, this 1960 Biscayne was turned into the ultimate show-worthy custom. With performance and style at the forefront of the build, it leaves the once family sedan stereotype in the dust. Taking a year from start to finish, this brand new and fresh to the market build was started off with a new Art Morrison chassis, and an attention to detail body-off restoration. The fresh white paint and chrome components on the outside help the especially straight and smooth-edged body to be admired from all angles.

Sitting on impressive chrome Billet Specialties wheels and Pirelli P Zero tires with custom Strange gold shocks, the ride is sure to be smooth while cruising down the road. Industry leading red Wilwood forged Dynapro brakes and calipers have been placed in all four corners for the ultimate stopping power. The braking system includes a high-end Wilwood master cylinder kit that helps keep full isolation between front and rear fluid circuits.

Under the hood is a screaming Lingenfelter supercharged LT4 engine that accelerates this build into another stratosphere. Backed by a TKO600 five-speed manual transmission, the pure thrill and enjoyment from ripping down the road in this ride is exhilarating.

If the craftsmanship on the outside isn’t enough to convince you of how well-executed this custom is, the interior is sure to sway you. The inside features a custom interior by the experts at HIDE Originals, LLC with two bucket seats in the front and bench seating in the rear; all seats are finished in an amazingly clean black leather with an eye-catching checkered pattern with red stitching. The original factory dash houses the main components such as new Dakota Digital gauges, updated Chevy radio, and air-conditioning controls. Seldom seen yet always noticed, Chevrolet's understated Biscayne has earned a plethora of avid enthusiasts and admirers due to its raw and simplistic attributes that make it stand out in a crowd. Retaining its classic Chevrolet styling, combined with tons of modern-day conveniences and modern driving dynamics, this is an amazing opportunity to add a stunning, turnkey custom build in your collection.
