For Sale: 1996 Chevrolet Impala in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is proud to present this 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS for sale. This Impala SS is Black with grey leather interior. In the early 90s full size muscle cars were a thing of the past. GMs special vehicles team received an order to develop a car based on the full-size Caprice platform. They took a black Caprice with the 9C1 Police Package, added five-spoke wheels, dropped in the LT1 V8 from the Corvette, dressed it with Impala SS badges which GM had not used since 1969, and created an instant classic. Its LT1 was slightly different than the Corvettes 300 hp version, with 2-bolt mains, cast-iron cylinder heads and a different camshaft. It was rated 260 hp in the Impala with 330 lb. Ft of torque. With beefy anti-roll bars, large 17-inch tires and big 12-inch disc brakes they also handled and stopped incredibly well for their size and weight. The same critics that had been bashing the Caprice now had only praise for the full-size muscle car, from its performance to the comfort of its front bucket seats. Acceleration is smooth, without hesitation or lag. There is no pausing for a gulp of breath when you step on the pedal. The 5.7 wants to run. But it is the suspension that really sets the Impala SS apart. The front suspension has steel-alloy springs and a thick sway bar, it is the same one that is in the Caprice. The rear suspension, with its gas shocks, steel springs and sway bar, is the same as Chevy's police package. It is the suspension that makes Impala a handling Beast and sets it apart. This Impala SS is equipped with air conditioning, AM FM with CD, power brakes and power steering, power windows and power locks, tilt wheel and cruise control, dual airbags, keyless entry, power mirrors, alloy wheels and radial tires.
