This 1995 Impala SS is one car that I can guarantee will be gone in
very short order. If you're even remotely interested in it, don't
even finish reading, call now, because these cars never, ever stick
around for long. Even nearly 20 years after they were built, these
are A-list commodities with a long list of eager new owners.
There's no need to cover the legend of the Impala SS here, so I'm just going to get right to it. This is a 2-owner, GA car and is completely stock. It also wears its factory dark gray green paint, which is arguably the most desirable of all Impala SS colors and certainly the rarest. After 18 years is showing some signs of use, but thanks to careful ownership and some long-term storage, it's quite presentable, especially for a car designed to go this fast. The car has never been hit or rusty, and all the special Impala SS-only components are in place, from the grille to the emblems on the C-pillars. The trick Impala SS emblems on the quarters, which were color-matched to the body for a cool effect, perfectly sum up the subtle look of this car. Even the headlights are bright and clear and the taillights show no signs of UV damage or fading, further indications that this car has been treated right.
Chevy's gray leather interior was a bit more dressed up than the usual Caprice fare and the stuff wears like iron. The driver's seat shows modest signs of use and there's a bit of wear on the driver's armrest where someone's elbow might rest, but otherwise the interior is remarkably clean and unused. Every single option Chevy offered was standard on the Impala, including A/C (ice cold, by the way), power windows, locks, mirrors and seats, cruise control, and a tilt column with a leather-wrapped wheel. There's room for five in there and nobody will complain about the accommodations. A center console houses the shifter for the 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, as well as a pair of cup holders big enough to handle a pony keg. Heck, this car is so stock that even the original factory radio still lives in the dash, and quite honestly, it sounds great. The cavernous trunk looks like new and still carries its original space-saver spare, tire cover, and cargo net.
GM's 350 cubic inch LT1 V8 powered the Impala SS, and while it wasn't as strong as the Corvette version from which it was derived, it gives this big 4-door the moves of a genuine muscle car. It's also as reliable as a New York City taxi cab and as modification-friendly as Joan Rivers. Fortunately, this one is completely stock, right down to the air filter, and that's exactly how you want them. Never abused or raced, it runs and drives beautifully and still feels exciting after all these years. It starts easily, the transmission shifts properly, and it hammers down the road with the authority that only a big, bad sedan can deliver. Factory alloys look fantastic and wear recent 255/50/17 Kumho radials.
Late-model collectables are rare, but the fact that the Impala SS is still trading hands aggressively means that there's a strong following for these cars. As I said, this is one car that won't be here next week, so don't miss your chance and call today!
