For Sale: 1996 Chevrolet Impala in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

If you missed your opportunity at buying a brand new example of one of the last great full-size muscle cars, now is the closest thing to a second chance. This 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS is a one-owner car that has extremely low miles, which means it still looks fresh everywhere from the slick black paint to the Corvette LT1 motor.

With only about 7k miles on the odometer, you know this Impala SS came from a collector. He kept it as a local show car that would get put to bed in climate-controlled storage. So it has the kind of clean presentation where even the weather-stripping impresses. The factory black paint has a piano-like luster as the light evenly rolls off of the clean aerodynamic sheet metal. 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. So overall, you have the kind of time capsule appearance where you may just try to turn your garage into a Chevy showroom circa 1996.

The exceptional preservation continues inside. The Impala got a nice upgrade over the standard Caprice in the form of gray leather buckets and a center console. Best of all, the ultra-low mileage means there wasn't even really time to put comfort marks in the driver's seat. In fact, any few signs of wear are more likely just the eventual aging of original pieces. After all, this has now crossed the 25-year threshold, and that makes it eligible for antique car registrations and benefits in many states. This is loaded with the best features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry, cruise control, a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo, and ice-cold air conditioning. In addition, this one sports dual power seats, automatic headlights, and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, which were part of the Preferred Equipment Group. But more than luxurious, the Impala SS is one of the final few performance vehicles that has room for all your family and friends. But if your plans for this are a road trip machine, you'd be the first. The original owner utilized the ample trunk for a custom car show display, not the family's luggage.

The Impala SS is a true legend thanks to the Corvette-derived LT1 V8. Take some time to look at the amazingly stock and clean condition of the engine bay. It keeps its show-ready status where the only additions we can even spot are a few added badges and callouts that a motor like this deserves. But we wouldn't blame you for looking at this shining sedan and thinking you need to add to the low odometer. The LT1 barks to life easily, idles smoothly, and pulls like a freight train. The four-speed automatic overdrive transmission 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, ABS, four-wheel disc brakes, a limited-slip rear end, desirable de Carbon shocks, and modern sport tires.

This one-owner cherished car comes with the original window sticker and the owner's manual. You're looking at a second chance to buy a preserved American legend. But if you wait, this opportunity could be gone. Call today!!!
