Rarity, distinction, and attitude make this 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS an instant standout. After all, who can resist a modern classic with plenty of V8 fuel-injected power and a full midnight appearance?
These were only around for a few short years, so this generation Impala SS is always in-demand. But this instant-classic stands out even a bit more. This retains a nice gloss and shine to continue attracting attention. In fact, Chevy advertised these by saying "Lord Vader, your car is ready." And so this one lives up to that dark side feeling. That attitude continues on the color-matched bumpers, integrated rear spoiler, and blackout grille that all really helped announce this was something special. The only real hint of brightwork are places like the tastefully done window trim, badging, and the upgraded LED lights. And the five-spoke alloys look like custom units, but were direct from Chevy for this special SS.
The interior is what makes the Impala SS such great all-around classic. After all, there's plenty of room for family and friends to spread out across the gray leather interior. And because this has averaged less than 2,500 miles annually, you have a well-done and well-preserved appearance. This is a modern classic, and so it's loaded with the best features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, power mirrors, a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold R134a air conditioning with new air compressor. There's even the modern safety of dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. But the best treats are what make this a true driver's machine. Power front bucket seats, tilt steering column, an armrest center console, and a floor shifter give this full-size sedan a terrific sports car feeling.
The Impala SS is a true legend thanks to the Corvette's LT1. It's a special V8 to have in this full-size sedan, and so we are glad to see this numbers-matching motor look as fresh as day one. The fuel-injected V8 barks to life easily, idles smoothly, and it pulls like a freight train. So it makes for classic-style muscle but in a modern and versatile package. The four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive is smooth and always seems to be ready to leap into action. The suspension has been upgraded over the Caprice to handle the extra power with ease, and it comes with power steering, sway bars, modern performance tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
Because this is a low-mileage instant collectable, you'll also be glad it comes with good documentation like the original window sticker and owner's manual packet. Rarely do modern classic with this much appeal also come with an affordable price tag. Don't miss this deal, call today!
