Classic Car Overview

We all know the stories of the few factory cars that were truly blacktop legends. These sleepers that were hidden in the factory order sheets where only those who really know what to look for could find a factory-built racecar for the streets. This 1968 Chevrolet Biscayne L72 is part of that secret legacy. It has a 427ci V8, a Muncie M21 four-on the-floor, fast rear gears, and the kind of restoration that takes it back to those first summer nights when this established the new king of the boulevard. The 68 Biscayne was the perfect place to have a speed demon in disguise. The front end was updated to give it a more furrowed brow intimidating face; the sides have stylish arches for a sporty profile; and the rear had a smooth finish that could have been borrowed from NASCAR. But because this was all in the base-level Biscayne package, no one gave it a second glance in 1968. And thats the key to the cars usefulness and rarity. After all, the Biscayne wasnt weighed down by its Impala siblings options or extra chrome, and the pillared two-door sedan made for a stronger body. So while the L72 motor was an expensive idea to the usual bare-bones Biscayne buyer, it really meant the best engine in the lightest and strongest bundle. Thats why this was the same package that the guys a Baldwin Chevrolet discovered to create the Baldwin-Motion Street Racers Special. This example started its life a little further out west. We have an owner history on this one (call for all the details) that says this was first dominating the quarter-mile tracks around Sioux Falls, South Dakota. In fact, the factory-correct Butternut Yellow paint earned this car the nickname Bisquick. Good sheet metal, uniform gaps, and chrome bumpers that hug the cars form all make this a sold-looking sleeper. And the only real hint of this cars true nature is the set of redline tires on the incognito steel wheel w/dog dish hubcaps. Inside is a highly correct interior that continues this cars honest and time capsule appearance. The Biscayne offers plenty of full-size comfort to carry family and friends across two rows of wide benches. Everything feels thoughtful and well-preserved - from the texture of the carpet to the working dome light. Even the Delco AM radio is still there for display. In fact, the only real upgrades youre going to find in here are the very handy AutoMeter Sport-Comp tach mounted out the steering column, aux gauges under the dash, and the Hurst floor shifter. The engine bay has the unmistakable look of big block power. These L72 Biscaynes were destined to get hard use from the start, and in fact, the first owner is said to have blown up the motor on the dragstrip while figuring out its full limits. So this is a replacement block, but its said to have been the one exchanged when the original block was. And the era-correct casting for this 427 cubic-inch unit backs up the story. It has the right components for an L72, like solid lifters, high horse pulleys, GM winters aluminum intake, and a big Holley four-barrel carburetor. It fires up with the quickness of a well-respected car, and you better believe the rumble is awesomely mean. The Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission puts you in firm control of all the action, and the 4.56 rear end gives you powerful takeoffs. Plus, smooth power steering and a rear sway bar help make this a good cruiser when you dont need to be a bruiser. This is the authentically presented kind of street machine legend where you can likely count the full rarity on your hands. Thats why you need to catch up to this blacktop burner before its gone.
