This 1962 Chevrolet Biscayne two-door sedan underwent significant modifications under its previous stewardship, now boasting a formidable 409ci V8 engine paired with a Muncie four-speed manual gearbox. Imported to Canada circa 2005, it came into the current proprietor’s possession in 2021. Under their care, a Positraction rear differential with a 3.73:1 ratio was installed, alongside an Edelbrock 500cfm four-barrel carburetor. Cloaked in an elegant black exterior complemented by patterned beige upholstery, the vehicle features body-color steel wheels, hubcaps, dual exhaust, bench seats, lap belts, a Sun tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. Additional enhancements include the installation of PerTronix electronic ignition, refurbishment of the wheel cylinders and lights, and the replacement of the clutch, front coil springs, battery cables, and spark plugs. This bespoke Biscayne is now available in Canada, accompanied by service records from the current ownership and Ontario registration in the seller’s name.

Initially adorned in Silver Blue (912) from the factory, the car received a black repaint under its former owner. It flaunts chrome bumpers and trim, 409 fender emblems, and a driver-side mirror. The hood shows chipped paint, and the gallery below captures imperfections on the bumpers and trim.

The black-painted 14″ steel wheels, embellished with Chevrolet-branded hubcaps, are shod with 215/75 Toyo Extensa A/S tires. The front and rear wheel cylinders were replaced in 2021, as well as the parking-brake cable and front coil springs.

Inside, the car retains its factory Fawn cloth and vinyl upholstery (860). Features include bench seats, front and rear lap belts, a cueball-style shift knob, floor mats, a dome light, a heater, and a glovebox. Corrosion in the trunk compartment is visible in the gallery.

The two-spoke steering wheel frames a 120-mph speedometer, fuel level, and coolant temperature gauges. A Sun Electric Corporation 7k-rpm tachometer is mounted on the steering column, with aftermarket gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, and battery charge positioned ahead of the shifter. The five-digit odometer reads 72k miles, about 500 of which were added under current ownership, though true mileage is indeterminate. The speedometer needle is reported to oscillate while driving.

The 409ci V8, installed approximately two decades ago by a previous owner, is now equipped with a single-inlet Edelbrock 500cfm four-barrel carburetor with an electric choke, installed under current ownership. Additionally, PerTronix electronic ignition and coils, battery cables, and spark plugs were replaced. The oil pan has a leak. The chassis number reveals the car originally housed a 235ci inline-six engine.

The engine stamping, shown above, denotes a QA suffix suitable for a 409ci V8 produced between 1961 and 1964.

Power is transmitted to the rear wheels through a Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission, installed by a previous owner. In 2021, the clutch was replaced, and the flywheel was machined. The Positraction limited-slip rear end, featuring 3.73:1 gearing, was installed in 2022, accompanied by a bearing kit replacement. The dual exhaust system is equipped with manual muffler-bypass valves.
