Re: 1966 Biscayne 427

Did it come from the factory with the four speed and 427? What a kickass way to order the car, the stripped down full-size car with the most powerful powertrain.

I love that blue. I have a '66 impala in the garage that has been patiently waiting its turn as I collect parts.

I have always liked the 65's (cool car you had). Yeah I have sold a few that I wish I could have kept but usually it was only to buy something else that I liked more at the time. When I bought the Biscayne I was not even looking for one of these cars but the deal was just way to good to pass up. I only planned on keeping it for a while and then re selling but the car just kept growing on me and one of my good friends told me I was crazy for selling such a cool car and it would be one that I regretted. I believe it was 2001 when I purchased the car and have turned every nut and bolt on it so I know what I have now and the car gets driven lots.

best upgrade I have ever done. Shifts awsome and settles right down on the highway for some long cruises 2200 rpm at 70mph.
