1969 Chevrolet Biscayne
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
For sale is a 1969 2-door Biscayne. This car is a "COPO" because it was ordered in Hugger Orange. That is the original color of the car please see the body tag for the car and you will see the dashes for the paint codes. The car was originally owned by Pete Yacca of New York Speed and Machine in Staten Island. Pete and his brother used this car for street racing and track racing. It was mainly used on the track. They stopped driving it on the road on around 1992. He ordered the car on 07/20/1968 from Island Chevy on Staten Island. The car sat in storage for many years until the year 1999. The car was then restored from 2000-2003. Full frame off restore to bring the car back to show room condition. The restro reflects a modded car of its vintage. It is a turn key purchase. This car needs absolutely nothing. Just put it on a trailer and bring it to car shows.

THIS CAR HAS A VERY RARE TRANSISTOR IGNITION MODULE.
This rare muscle car was a terror on the streets of New York with its sleeper looks and big power under the hood! After a few months of street racing and in the quest to be a step above the local street race competition Pete and his brother modified the car with the following:
Chevy’s latest crate engine, a 454 (LS-7) GM rated at 460 horsepower. This was a Special Corvette engine that never made it to production (sold over the counter only a 454 CID LS-7 version of the 427 CID L-88 offered in 1969). Features: 12:5 compression, special crank, special full floating pin with Boron bolts rods, alum. Intake manifold, 850 double pump Holley carburetor, High lift sold cam, #512 4 bolt main block.

Pete Yacca’s New York Speed’s famous tune and build was now complete on this now ultra-unique rare muscle car.
This Biscayne became so famous in the local area that the owner had to change its color to dark blue and fitted it with new wheels and tires. This disguise was done one late Thursday night so a weekend big dollar street race could be set up (the Biscayne won).
This car was street and drag raced until late 1992. Put in storage for 7 years in 1992. At the time, I finally got possession of the Biscayne in 1999 from the Yacca’s, it was still painted dark blue. It took over 3 years to fully restore the Biscayne back to its early 1970’s appearance. This car is the only COPO 1969 427 Biscayne to have been special dealer ordered in Hugger Orange and it might just be the last one built. Looking at the build date of 05D the last week of May and special order COPO color, this makes for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind Chevrolet! With less than 80 of the 1969 Biscayne model produced with the 427 C.I. 425 horsepower engine, it has to be a much rarer and more collectable car than the 1970 SS454 450 horsepower Chevelle. How often do you find a one of a kind factory produced auto? You will not find another one in any car collection! This is a true piece of General Motors muscle car history!
The car has always been garage kept. 60 miles have been placed on the car since restoration. The car does not need any work and is drivable on the street. No rust or mechanical issues. Ready for car shows. The car has been restored to the configuration it was in during the time period it was used for drag racing. Only original parts were used.
This item is located in Alma, Ar, 72921. Pick-up arrangements will need to be made by the buyer. Inspection is available for serious bidders.
Included with this car upon purchase is a quite rare 1969 Chevrolet Dealer pamphlet over-viewing relevant product offerings: Caprice, Bel Air, Impala, Biscayne. This pamphlet is in extremely fine condition. It covers many optional accessories you probably didn't even know Chevy offered.
Question 1: There is a dealer sticker on the truck. What does the dealer sticker say?
There is a "YENKO" sticker on the truck lid. That sticker was added during the restoration process. My father did this for enjoyment at car shows and this is not part of the car's legacy. The sticker looks like it could be easily removed.
Question 2: Are there additional pictures of videos of the car?
Ebay said I was at the picture limit. Here is a link to a google album with additional pictures and videos of the car. I can take additional pictures of anything that you request.
