Morning Symphony: One Beefy Biscayne – All Guts, Glory Comes Naturally


Morning Symphony: One Beefy Biscayne – All Guts, Glory Comes Naturally

Have you ever looked at a car and without hearing it or seeing it in action, you simply know that you’re looking at something absolutely beastly? For some reason, the Chevrolets of the late 1950s and early 1960s that are built to kill really stand out in mind. Part of that is due to images and video of these X-framed finned beauties torquing themselves hard at the launch with wheels hanging in the air. It’s not the fastest way off of the line, and it isn’t doing the car any favors, but from an entertainment perspective, there is nothing quite like seeing a car twisting itself out of shape on the launch like these big Chevies do. But Bernie Powers’ 1960 Biscayne doesn’t really twist itself on the launch. It’ll hang the tires in the air no problem thanks to a 496ci mill running a 6-71 blower, and it’ll run all the way into the nines in the quarter. According to Victory Red Colorado, who grabbed this footage of the car putting in work at Route 66 Raceway in Illinois, the full-weight, full interior Biscayne will be seeing an upgrade shortly that will add on an 8-71 blower and nitrous. Someone get Powers the number for a good re-chroming shop…as many times as that rear bumper is gonna be dragged, he’ll probably need it sooner than later!
