Home / Automotive / Cars / Video: 1955 Chevrolet Biscayne Xp-37 Concept Comes To The Petersen Automotive Museum!


The 1955 Chevrolet Biscayne began life as a super star to showcase the new Chevrolet 265 cubic-inch V8 engine and was featured at the 1955 Motorama where it wowed the world with its futuristic design and styling cues. 

Most of the conventional components of an operational automobile were appearance only items in concept cars. There were no side windows and the power windows switches were dummies, and apart from some motors and servos to open the doors on the show floor, there were effectively no electrical systems. The Chevrolet Biscayne did not even have a conventional car battery or fuel tank. The Chevrolet also had no powertrain or chassis and missed many pieces. The Chevrolet Biscayne was named after show cars first displayed at the 1955 GM Motorama and was the least expensive model in the Chevy full-size care range that included the Bel Air, the Impala and the Delray. 

The Chevy Biscayne featured very little exterior chrome trim and was fitted with small hubcaps, various exterior trim pieces, and upgraded wheel covers were available for an additional cost. The trim on the inside was very limited and was decorated with lower-grade cloth and vinyl or all-vinyl upholstery trim.

Have a look at the video to see the Chevrolet Biscayne Concept Car in action.
