1962 Biscayne 409/409
I had bought this car as part of a two-car project to make one car.
While strictly a "roller", this car is actually in fair shape, and needs
only the usual fender lip rust and other minor body repairs to be put in
The interior seats are present, but of course the interior needs
I have a large inventory of boxed parts for this project.
This drive train has a 65 X-block, M-20 trans, and otherwise is all
correct 62 parts and #, such as 690 heads, correct carbs, intake, pan,
etc. I have even got the CORRECT generator (a VERY pricey and heavy
piece), as well as a plethora of small but important parts, like the
clutch rod, correct aluminum bell housing, chrome bumpers, scripts,
lettering, door handles, sill plates, vent window assemblies, cherry
valve covers, etc.
This is not intended to be a perfect clone, but has a large amount of
At this moment the engine has been machined, bored, and the crank is in
the bearings in the block. The correct 690 heads are sitting on the
block, with the manifold and carbs as well. The rebuilt rods with
correct and fitted .030" over forged pistons are NOT inside the motor at
this moment, but in a box directly beneath the engine on the stand. The
correct pan is on the block. I have the correct dipstick and tube, water
pump, fuel pump, timing cover, new timing chain and gears, etc. My
intent right now is to get the project as much together, as in getting
the parts assembled rather than all in boxes, to the degree possible.
Right now I would have to do the bodywork to allow for fitting other
pieces onto the car. I am waiting on money for that phase. For now, I am
intending on getting the motor and trans in the car, trial fitting all
the cherry parts, and cleaning it up as possible. The car, engine,
trans, and all parts are available for purchase now for $7K.
