The Chevrolet Biscayne was an economy-oriented mid-range sedan of the full-size Chevrolet series, which appeared in 1958 as a replacement for the Chevrolet 210.
Its name comes from a concept car presented at the 1955 Motorama in the form of a four-door sedan without uprights (hardtop) without an apparent grille but with frog eyes in the style of the Austin Healey which will appear in 1958. The rear announced that of the future Chevrolet Corvair.

It was available over several generations as two-door (until 1969) and four-door sedans with uprights, as well as two and four-door station wagons until production ceased in 1972.
The first Biscaynes were mostly chosen with the Blue Flame six-cylinder engine (3.9 L then 3.8 L and 4.1 L), before the V8 engine (4.6 L and up to 7.0 L) became the standard in the early 1970s. Due to their positioning, they did not have access to certain comfort equipment, such as the electric windows reserved for the more chic Impala and Bel Air versions. Customers could nevertheless choose to equip their vehicle with performance packs and in particular Big Block V8s (these models were nicknamed Bisquick). That said, these versions remained rather rare, the vast majority of Biscayne being fairly simple models, even stripped down like the Biscayne Fleetmaster series offered between 1960 and 1961, most of the chrome had been removed.
Fourth generation (1965–1970):
The new 1965 Biscayne was even bigger and offered an even wider range of engines, including a new, larger six-cylinder in-line 250-ci. For the 1967 model year, the smaller 230 was discarded. In 1966, the top engine became the new Big-Block 427 ci V8, available in a high-power, high-speed version of 425 hp (317 kW) with solid lifts. Although it was not available for the great Chevrolets in 1967, it returned in 1968 for two more years of model. After 1968, the Biscayne station wagon was discontinued and sold as Brookwood. Power steering and hydraulic brakes have become standard for the 1970 model.
