|1966 CHEVY BISCAYNE POST SEDAN
REAL L72 427 CU. IN./425 H.P.
FORMER DRAG CAR
This is a "Very Rare" documented L72 427 cu. in./425 h.p. 1966 Biscayne 4-speed 2 door post sedan. The experts estimate
that there were only around 100 Biscaynes built with the L72 427 cu. in./425 h.p. This car was purchased new off the lot
at Floyd Hughes Chevrolet in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The new owner, Daryl Arrowsmith, was only 19 years old. He drag
raced the Biscayne, from "Day One", for the next 2 years at Witchita Dragway, Omaha Dragway, Kansas City Dragway,
Thunder Valley Dragway, and others. Daryl then sold the car to his brother Ron, who did some serious racing on the
streets. He claims the Biscayne was never beaten.
I had American Muscle Cars, Inc. return this car back to a "Day 2" look. They modified the suspension to lift the car,
installed Hooker headers with electric cut-outs, and installed 10.00-15 Firestone (D.O.T.) Cheater Slicks. They also installed
and original shifter, "Green Line" Stewart Warner gauges, and front tow bar tabs. The car still retains it's original Lakewood
scatter shield, and drive shaft hoop from it's racing days.
