Classic Car Overview

Gateway Classic Cars is proud to present this professionally built 1966 Chevrolet Biscayne L72 tribute car. This Chevrolet Biscayne L72 tribute has 71,710 miles on the odometer and is powered by a 427 cubic inch/425 horsepower engine driving through an M21 4- speed transmission and a 12 bolt 3.73 Positraction rear end. Complete with Redline tires, this 1966 Chevrolet Biscayne presented in blue with white top and blue interior is a terrific representation of a classic sleeper of the early muscle car era. By 1966, GMs intermediates, with near 400-cu in engines crammed between their fender wells, were rising in popularity faster than the hemlines of the day. The muscle car era had arrived. Race tracks across the country were serving as the proving grounds for myriad new high-performance powertrain combos from the Big Three. Though muscle cars were gaining momentum, full-size cars were far from washed up as racers. GTOs, Chevelle SSs, 4-4-2s and Gran Sports got bigger engines, but the full-size cars still got the biggest ones. Some denizens of the drag strip couldnt resist the lure of stuffing the largest displacement engine possible in the lightest body in which they could order it. So when Chevrolet pulled the wraps off of its new 427-cu in variation of the Mark IV big-block engine family, introduced just the year prior, Chevrolet racers certainly would have wanted to get their hands on one, particularly when it was announced that there would be a high-performance 425hp version, coded L72. Yet, the only way to get the solid-lifter L72 was to buy a Corvette or to select something from the full-size line. But while Chevrolet had made the high-performance 427 available across the full-size car line, the division didnt actually assemble a drag-strip-dedicated packaging of those elements the way some other manufacturers were doing at the time. So, it was up to racers to figure out that the hot setup was the base-model Biscayne two-door pillared sedan with the L72 engine checked off. A handful of savvy faithful did just that and were rewarded with a potent engine package wrapped in a large car that was both lighter and more rigid than an Impala hardtop. The 427 instantly transformed Chevys low-cost sedate sedan into a competitive drag racer. Though model-specific figures have not been found, a total of 1,856 L72 427s were installed across the big-car line in 66.
