'58 Chevy Biscayne, Youngstown, N.Y.

There was a time when Chevy’s Biscayne wasn’t the El-Cheapo police car/taxi cab model in the Chevrolet lineup. Like for instance, when this 1958 Chevy Biscayne four-door was built. This one’s sitting way back in a driveway in Youngstown, along with (but pretty much out of the picture) a trio of other mid-50s Bow Ties. The Biscayne sat below the top-of-the-line Bel Air (of which the new-for-’58 Impala was a sub-model), and above the Delray (Biscaynes were previously 210s, and Delrays were known as 150s prior to 1958). This four-door sedan sold for $2,290 with a six-, and $2,397 with an eight-cyllinder engine. Individual production figures are vague, but a total of 76,229 Biscaynes were built for the model year.
