Classic Car Overview

Cruisin Classics is excited and proud to offer to you today this incredibly rare 1966 Chevrolet L72 Biscayne! We get some amazing cars here at Cruisin Classics, but having a car like this one is literally like having a live unicorn in captivity! This fully documented Biscayne is one of only 183 L72-powered Bisquicks produced and one of 11 believed to still exist today. This car comes to us with a full owner history, original sales invoice, original window sticker, vintage photos of the car, and restoration receipts from 2013. This very special ride was awarded an AACA national first prize in 2014 and was featured in the November 1989 edition of Muscle Cars Magazine (copy included with sale). To make it even cooler, it has only 29,911 documented miles on the odometer! This Biscayne was originally purchased in the spring of 1966 at Larson Chevrolet in Superior, Wisconsin. The first owner, John Enlund traded in his 1965 GTO tri-power for what he knew was a sleeper that would be an absolute beast at the track. He raced his new black beauty at local tracks for only a year before he was called up for service in Vietnam and sold the car to a 20-year old named Leroy Levens. Less than a year later, young Leroy had pushed the Biscayne too hard at the track and blew the original 427. The engine was quickly replaced by a service replacement block and Leroy went on to race and enjoy the car for almost 20 years before treating it to a frame-off restoration in the mid 1980s. Now dressed in a new coat of Tuxedo Black lacquer paint along with many NOS parts, the car caught the attention of Joe Fasano of New Jersey. Joe corresponded with Leroy for 2 years before he finally convinced him to sell him the car and we actually have a couple of letters that they sent to each other in 1986-87 discussing the car! Shortly after buying the car, Joe found a dated original 1966 4-bolt main 3869942 block, had it rebuilt to factory stock, and put it in the Biscayne. He also removed the headers that were on it and re-installed the original exhaust manifolds, rebuilt the original Holley carburetor, and added quite a few NOS parts to bring the car back to its original glory. During the following 25 years that Mr. Fasano owned the car he drove it very sparingly and predominately trailered it to Super-Chevy shows taking home more than a few first place awards. In 2013 a gentleman from Ohio named George Madej bought the Biscayne from Joe and immediately set forth on a 300 hour refresh of the car that included work on the original 4-core HD radiator, a transmission rebuild, adding 1966 dated plug wires, paint work, some replating, and a lot of re-detailing. Like Joe, George put almost no miles on the car and just took it to shows. The Bisquick changed hands again just 5 years later when another Ohio gentleman took possesion and continued to fine-tune the car with more NOS parts and even more intricate detailing and adjusting. The result of all of this love and labor is the stunningly beautiful black beast of a Biscayne that stands before us today! The exterior of this Biscayne is a study in artful simplicity. Smooth, deep Tuxedo Black Lacquer covers the long laser-straight body that boasts all-original sheet metal. The stainless horizontal front grille sits above a mirror-like chrome bumper and is flanked by dual side by side T3 headlights. On the grille youll find a small AACA plaque from its first place win in 2014. Both the windshield and rear window feature bright trim and all of the glass on the car is original. A chrome side mirror with bowtie insignia and bright door handles add a small spark of contrast against the dark body. 427 Turbo-Jet badges on the front of the fenders are the only giveaway of the power that lies beneath the hood. At the rear of the car, rather ordinary rectangular tail lights float between another gleaming chrome bumper, a colorful Chevrolet crest, and an off-set Chevrolet script. Topping of the cool exterior look are the original 6 black steel wheels with bright dog dish hubcaps that sport red bowties at the center. The steelies are wrapped in a set of Goodyear Power Streak blackwall bias-ply tires.
