With only a few years in production, LT1 Corvette power, and a cool
full-size appearance we hadn't seen since the muscle car era, we
all knew cars like this 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS would be classics.
Today we're all on the lookout for exceptionally preserved
examples. So check out the full package here, right down to the
ultra-low miles and shining factory paint on this preserved SS. It
proves this has been cherished from day one.
Averaging less than 300 miles annually, you know this Impala SS
came from someone who loved this sedan. That's why the factory Dark
Cherry Metallic is still a peach of a paintjob. It's a color you'll
really enjoy because it looks almost black at night, but then the
red comes out in the sunlight. Clearly treated to a life of
privilege, the sleek full-size sedan looks every bit as good now as
it did two decades ago when it hit the showrooms. Everything on
this one is neatly preserved and in excellent condition, from the
urethane bumpers, to the slick body-colored "Impala SS" badges that
subtly adorn the flanks. And of course, everyone loves to see those
correct 17-inch alloys filling the wheel wells.
Gray leather, bucket seats, and a center console do a great job of
upgrading the interior of the Impala SS into the performance car
world. And this special interior is ready to show off, because the
nearly impossibly low mileage also means there's was hardly any
seat time. Not only is it an exceptionally preserved time capsule,
but it's also loaded, too. Cruise control, power windows power
locks, power mirrors, a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo, tilt steering
column, and ice-cold air conditioning were standard equipment.
Plus, this one also has the desirable Preferred Equipment Group
that includes dual power seats, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror,
and Twilight Sentinel headlights. But more than luxurious, the
Impala SS is one of the final few performance vehicles that has
room for all your family and friends. Road trips are even easy for
this one (if you feel like adding to the low odometer) because of
the huge trunk.
The Impala SS is a true legend thanks to the Corvette's LT1 V8, and
this is the numbers-matching unit. Take some time to look at the
amazingly stock and clean condition of the engine bay. Bringing it
home will almost be like you're picking it up from the Chevy
showroom in 1996! But don't be afraid to get a little dirt in
there, after all, these Chevys were made to be driven. The LT1
barks to life easily, idles smoothly, and it pulls like a freight
train. The four-speed automatic transmission is the right balance
of overdrive comfort and quick kick-downs into performance. The
suspension has been upgraded over the Caprice to handle the extra
power with ease, and it comes with power steering, ABS, four-wheel
disc brakes, sway bars, and pricey de Carbon shocks.
Here's a great modern classic in the grand tradition of large
muscle cars. This kind of legacy is backed up by original
documentation such as the owner's manual packet and window sticker.
This is one of the most unique cars of its era, and it has been
preserved to be a benchmark for the few others out there. Call
