If you missed your opportunity at one of the last great full-size
muscle cars, now is the best thing to a second chance. This 1996
Chevrolet Impala SS has extremely low miles, which means you'll
still be the one to break in the Corvette LT1 motor.
With less than 2K miles on the odometer, you know this Impala SS came from a collector. That's why the factory Dark Green-Gray Metallic is still a shining star. And on a car as special as this, you're looking at the perfect color. It provides true distinction from the darker examples on the show field so you can be a standout even among standouts. 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.
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. All the gauges are fully functional, and the Impala came only one way: loaded. Cruise control, power windows power locks, a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo, and ice-cold air conditioning were standard equipment, and it all works like new. 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. Road trips are even in the cards 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-derived LT1 V8. Take some time to look at the amazingly stock and clean condition of the engine bay. This original numbers-matching V8 looks like you're picking it up from the Chevy showroom in 1996, and that's what the survivor awards are all about at the car shows. Then again, these Chevys were made to be driven. This is a fuel-injected small block that's known for reliability and parts availability. So you will have no trouble establishing break-in mileage on this if you so desire. The LT1 barks to life easily, idles smoothly, and it 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, and pricey de Carbon shocks.
Complete with all the right paperwork, including original bill of sale, owner's manual, original window sticker, you're looking at a second chance to buy an American legend. But if you wait, this opportunity could be gone. Call today!!!
