Photos of new Biscayne

So, here's what I drug home Saturday. It's rough, but nothing compared to the Impala that I already have. I'll be using the Impala for parts on this one. So far, I'm thinking ultra basic, plain Jane looker from the outside with a BBC under the hood and a manual trans of some kind.



The Biscayne comes with this temp gauge neatly tucked away in the Dash. The previous owner is convinced it's some kinda factory add-on or a dealer added piece. Yeah, it looks neatly done, but I doubt that this would have been added and not match the existing gauges and this is



Now the hunt for good Biscayne parts begins. Wish me luck.

Vance

Doesn't look like it from the height of the front end but that can be easily fixed Nice project you got there. Can't wait to see the progress on it.

According to the VIN, it was a six cylinder car built in Janesvile, WI; same color as my Impala, Mist blue. I'm guessing it had a P/G as it's a column shift auto. I'm wanting to put a manual trans in it. So if anyone has a set of manual pedals, let me know.

If I run that gauge cluster, I'll prolly keep it because it's different.

I asked in another thread about the rear seats in the Biscaynes and how they were different. Apparently, they didn't have the speaker grille. Since I have the Impala rear seat and don't have the Biscayne's, I'm gonna use the Impala's seat, but do something very different but subtle where the speaker grille is. SSSHHHH...it's a secret.

What's up with the bear next to 12 on the speedometer? Is that original?

Don't worry about the photos. During my last build, I took over 800 photos in the six or so years I was working on it. When I sold that car, a CD with all of those went with the car.

I've only had the Biscayne for four days and already have several dozen photos.
