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. And with the low miles and factory paint on this preserved example, it has been cherished from day one.
Averaging less than 1,300 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. This one shows only minor signs of use, certainly in line with the mileage, and the leather remains supple and smooth. All the gauges are fully functional, and the Impala came only one way: loaded. Cruise control, power windows power locks, power mirrors, 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's LT1 V8. Take some time to look at the amazingly stock and clean condition of the engine bay – it's 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 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, sway bars, grippy BF Goodrich Comp T/A tires, 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 and original window sticker. This is the perfect collectable to also take family and friends on the long trips. That's why we also know it won't stay with us long at this affordable price. Call today!!!
