Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1965 Chevrolet Biscayne 409/400HP 4-Spd
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from the beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 25 years of classic vehicle experience and continue to learn more every day. I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current. I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I only collect number one and number two condition vehicles that are already completed. We slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish but don’t do this anymore. Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 700 classic vehicles which can be seen on the company website sold page. The vehicles are sold to previous customers, referrals and are sold from advertising on various websites, online auctions and live auctions. We’ve featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. We’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites. I’m proud to say that MS CLASSIC CARS has accomplished some great things with our vehicles over the years. People recognize value in our vehicles and doing business with us. I consider myself to be an expert in the classic car business and would like to put my experience to work for you.

The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts. This location was established in 2012. The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 50 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re the only dealership in the country that services every vehicle we sell and documents it with an invoice. I stand behind every vehicle we sell.  Each vehicle is presented with a detailed description, 150+ high quality photos and a video.  We don’t offer consignments.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or enclosed shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in this business and our reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.  “MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

Marc Schiliro – The owner

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 25 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a very diverse market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world. 

Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 20 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand, not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay. 

Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time at Viti Mercedes Benz located in Tiverton, RI. They’re recognized for being one of the best Mercedes Benz dealerships in the country for customer service.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also took on a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”. Thank you.

1965 Chevrolet Biscayne 409/400HP 4-spd (1 of 20) – “Extremely Rare”



This seductive 1965 Chevrolet Biscayne 409/400HP 4-spd is extremely rare and completely original matching numbers. In 1965, only 2,828 Chevrolet’s models were equipped with a 409 V8. Of those, 2,086 were the 340HP version and 742 were the 400HP version. This example is one of the 742 with 400HP. It’s estimated that only 20 Biscayne’s were built with a 409 V8 and only a few exist today. From the information gathered this car was ordered by a GM employee as a “special order” which was similar to a COPO. It was ordered with a Dunube Blue Metallic exterior and Fawn interior. It was also ordered as a Convenience Package delete car which eliminated the exterior mirrors and backup lights. A previous owner purchased the car in 1971 and parked it in 1975. During that time it was lightly “hot rodded” with hood pins, aftermarket gauges and air cleaner. After 35 years of ownership the previous owner sold the car on eBay to a gentleman named Paul Burt in 2006. The car was in very good original condition with 81,000 original miles. Photos of the car in its original state of condition at time of sale are included and presented in the photo gallery. The photos clearly document its originality which is worth its weight in gold. Paul sent the car to Steve Miller of Classic Restorations Plus of Rockford, IL in 2007 for a rotisserie nut and bolt restoration. Steve completed the car is roughly 8 months and the photos of the restoration are included. In later 2007, the car was shown at Chevy Vettefest where it was a Gold Spinner award winner. The award is not included. In February 2008, it was featured in Muscle Car Review magazine which is included. This car is a great example of authentic 1965 Chevrolet Biscayne 409/400HP 4-speed that is completely matching numbers. A list with a breakdown of all the numbers including photos is listed in the photo gallery. This is truly a “Blue Chip” investment no pun intended.

The exterior of this car is in beautiful condition and has a seductive look. It’s a total sleeper! It retains all the original sheet metal throughout. Only minor patch work was required to the hood where the hood pins were and to the lower rear quarters. The body is very straight and the hood, doors and trunk lid close like they should from a factory original car. The car was refinished in its original color of Dunube Blue Metallic which is stunning. This color changes depending on the lighting which really pops. The paint was recently detailed to a show quality shine. It has a new PPG Sunshade Solex front windshield. The vent glass, door glass, quarter glass and rear glass is in excellent original condition with factory “Safety Plate” stamps. Everything on the exterior was restored or replaced such as the window trim, wipers, antenna, grille, T3 headlights, front bumper, door handles, side molding, lower molding, tail light bezels and lenses, rear bumper and all emblems. The car has a killer stance on 14” steel wheels that were painted blue and dressed with Chevrolet chrome hub caps. The wheels are wrapped with B.F. Goodrich Silverstone 8.00-14 Bias Ply tires. As stated above this car was ordered with no convenience package so it doesn’t have mirrors and the backup lights have no factory wiring.

The interior of this car is also in beautiful condition throughout. It’s spacious and very comfortable. It was re-finished in its original Fawn color which is multi-colored. It still retains many original interior pieces such as the steering wheel, gauges including the rare 7,000 RPM in dash tachometer, heater control panel, AM radio and door panels. Everything was restored or replaced such as the headliner, sun visors, rear view mirror, dash paint, dash fascia, gauges, steering wheel, door sill plates, door panels, door hardware, front seat, rear seat, seat belts, shifter and carpeting. The seats were re-upholstered with factory original fabric that was sourced. A new set of correct style black rubber floor mats were recently added and look great. Everything in the interior is in working order with exception of the AM radio which lights up but doesn’t play. Even the heating system and engine cold light works! The trunk compartment was completely restored and looks very clean. It was re-finished with the correct style trunk splatter paint and outfitted with a correct style trunk mat. It’s equipped with a matching spare tire and necessary tools.

The engine compartment is highly detailed throughout with many correct parts. The firewall, inner fenders and radiator support were re-finished in gloss black. The factory assembly line markings were added. The car is powered by its original matching numbers 409 V8 that was factory rated with 400HP. The engine was completely rebuilt and runs excellent with a capital E. This engine was factory built with 11:1 compression and solid lifter cam. It was equipped with chrome “W” valve covers and a chrome twin snorkel air cleaner. The engine is also equipped with its original snow flake intake and Carter AFB carburetor. Some other correct parts include the Packard Radio TVRS black wires, GM stamped hoses and clamps. It even has a Delco battery topper with correct cables. The engine breathes through factory manifolds and a new stainless steel dual exhaust system that sound sweet. The engine is coupled to the original matching numbers Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. The transmission was completely rebuilt and shifts precisely through the gears. The clutch was also replaced and is smooth to operate. The power is transferred to the original matching 12-bolt open rear end with 3.31 gears.

The undercarriage is also highly detailed throughout with many correct parts. The frame and floors were re-finished in black. The floors still retain some undercoating in various areas. Everything underneath was restored or replaced such as the manual steering system, manual braking system, fuel system and suspension components. It’s equipped with the correct style gray spiral shocks.


***MS CLASSIC CARS only purchases number one and number two condition classic vehicles. We service and detail every vehicle unlike most classic vehicles that are currently being advertised for sale. MS CLASSIC CARS invested a total of $6,367.87 servicing and detailing this vehicle. This is documented with an invoice pictured below. We’re the only classic car dealership in the country that does this. Please understand every vehicle needs something. Some vehicles just need a lot more than others. At MS CLASSIC CARS we take eliminate the surprises. We’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking. ***

Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
