Mark Bar­ton ‘L72’ 1966 Chev Bis­cayne

NZV8 - - FEATURE CAR -

When they rolled off the pro­duc­tion line back in the 1960s, two-door post cars were the low­est specced with the big­gest mo­tors, and with that came huge at­trac­tion for drag fans. On this side of the globe, post cars were al­most for­got­ten un­til one showed just how cool these light­weight low-spec mon­sters could be. Mark Bar­ton’s Chev Bis­cayne cre­ated a stir as soon as it ar­rived, with peo­ple sud­denly want­ing one them­selves. Lov­ing the look him­self, Mark very soon added a cou­ple more to his col­lec­tion, mak­ing it the big­gest, or only, col­lec­tion of post cars in the coun­try. Oth­ers are now start­ing to fol­low suit.
