Dust But No Rust. An Arizona Desert ’66 Biscayne Wagon For Sale

Everybody looks for vintage desert cars to buy because they hold up better in the drier climates… and we found the perfect desert hot rod on Ebay. Advertised as a 1966 Chevy Impala Biscayne, which is a little misleading.

The Biscayne models actually had less exterior and interior fancy trimmings than the mid-range priced Impala models. The trim on the inside was very limited and was decorated with lower-grade cloth and vinyl or all-vinyl upholstery trim.

A very standard steering wheel with a center horn button was fitted inside along with rubber floor mats. Introduced as the least expensive model in the Chevrolet full-size car range, the Biscayne station wagon was available from model years 1962 through 1968.

For the 1966 model year, the Biscayne wagons were offered in a 4-door 6-cylinder series for a baseline pricetag of $2,772 with the 4-door 8-cylinder series selling for $2,677. We found it odd that a full-size wagon with a 6-cylinder engine would be priced higher than it’s larger motored brother.

Our Ebay find falls into the category of a third generation of the Biscayne model (1965-1970) sporting the GM B platform, the fourth best selling automobile platform in history behind the Volkswagen Beetle, Ford Model T and the Lada Riva.

According to the seller of our Ebay find, this longroof Biscayne, “has a very good running V-8,with a automatic transmission…  The body on this wagon is very solid!!!!!  NO RUST!!!!! This would be a great PRO STREET,RESTO MOD, candidate.”

Other highlights of the Arizona Biscayne Wagon:

  • Power Steering
  • Crager 15-inch wheels
  • Edelbrock 4-barrel carb
  • Edelbrock intake
The only caveat that the seller put on the advertisement is “The car is being advertised locally so auction could be ended at any time. If you have any further questions please free to give me a call 480-709-1637”

As of the time of this writing, the auction price was $2,025.00 and the reserve had not been met.

We’d love to see this two-tone blue beast in our garage with a 454 big block under the hood and some major suspension improvements. Perhaps even a trick Air-Ride suspension system built for touring.
