1959 Chevrolet Biscayne 4 door sedan – video and test drive

Here we have a beautiful 1959 Chevrolet Biscayne 4-door sedan in Cameo Coral and Satin Beige and is powered by a  283 cubic inch V8. Power steering is also fitted – a $75 option back in the day.

The interior is Gray cloth and vinyl.  The car was made in Kansas City, MO.

Introduced in 1958, the Biscayne sat at the bottom end of the Chevrolet line-up under the Bel Air and Impala, but that’s not to say they didn’t look great! Primarily intended for the fleet market they were offered as a cheaper, no frills option. Standard features were rear foam cushions and electric wipers! For a base sedan they certainly had plenty of style.

Chevrolet didn’t keep any records of total numbers per model, only body style. There were 525,461 four-door sedans made for the 1959 model year. Base price for the V8 Biscayne was $2419.
