The redesigned Biscayne had a slightly smaller body than previous model years and rode on an 119" wheelbase with 14" tires. Biscaynes had a factory price range of $2,175 to $2,863. Series 1411 and 1221 Biscaynes were the least expensive and lightest full-size Chevrolets in 1961. The Series 1211 Biscaynes were close behind.

Biscaynes were produced primarily for corporate fleets; however, they were also available to the general public. They offered low-cost transportation with the convenience, room and power of a full-size sedan. Many luxury convenience options featured in the more expensive full-sized Chevrolets were not included in Biscaynes.

Biscaynes did not have power windows and featured lower-grade interior upholstery. They were largely devoid of exterior trim pieces. Their long rear trunks were simply adorned with a small dip in the chrome trim. Standard features included a foam-cushioned front seat, dual sun visors, two armrests, door locks and glove box lock. Biscaynes were easily identified by their two pairs of taillights. The Biscayne line included two-door and four-door sedans.
