Classifind Cut: 1966 Chevrolet Biscayne – SOLD!
January 29, 2021 Update – It didn’t take long for this no-frills, full-size, inline-six powered Chevy Biscayne to find a new home. While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
Not every 1966 full-size car Chevrolet produced was a V8-powered SS hardtop. It’s probably safe to say that the vast majority of full-size Chevys sold that year were basic, no-frills transportation examples such as this inline-six powered Biscayne two-door sedan the current caretaker listed in January 2021 on Craigslist in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania with a reupholstered interior and an asking price of $9,600. The Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms falls between this guide’s current #2 “Very Good” estimate of $8,825 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $13,575. We love the only modification performed on this no-frills survivor is a brake system upgrade for safety. No harm, no foul, in our opinion.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“1966 Chevrolet Biscayne 2 door coupe with 88,696 original miles. The odometer is working. Has original paint color – Sandalwood, and original seat fabric color- Fawn. The seats were just professionally redone less than 2 years ago and are like new. Has the original seat belts. All windows operate and there is no broken glass anywhere. Carpet is new. Paint is nice and original factory paint pattern and color. The engine is the original six cylinder 250cc. New pointless ignition, cap, wires and coil. The wiper pump and wiper motor were just rebuilt less than a year ago. New washer fluid reservoir. Original power steering. New front disc brakes, brake booster and chrome master cylinder added less than a year ago with all new brake lines. The car starts and runs good. The transmission is the original powerglide and works fine. All lights work. Tires are good with original hub caps and I have the beauty rings for the wheels that will go with the car as will the owners manual and service book. Has the original AM radio (powers up but not working, (the antenna was removed)). Nice rear trunk with full size spare and original jack. This car is very original; the only modifications were to the brakes for safety. I can provide the VIN and build codes to prove matching engine, trans, options, etc. I also have a video of the car running. The car is titled and NOT a salvage car. It is licensed in Pennsylvania as an antique. $9,600 cash. Will consider a trade for a restored Karmann Ghia.”
