1995 Chevrolet Impala SS
Sedan Car for sale by Harwood Motors in Macedonia, Ohio 44056
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

This fantastic Black Cherry 1995 Impala SS is beautifully maintained and many fans would argue that Black Cherry is the best possible color—less common than black and not quite as odd as the blue/green. It has obviously never seen snow or salt and that’s 100% factory paint on its flanks, so you know rust and bondo are non-issues here. GM’s build quality on the full-sized B-bodies was well above average and it seems that the guys bolting the Impalas together took their time because this thing fits together beautifully. Good gaps all around, doors that close with remarkable precision, and no signs of the half-hearted workmanship that was a GM hallmark for so many years. Despite the fact that it’s approaching its 25th birthday, this SS shines up beautifully and looks wicked with its body-colored grille, small lip spoiler on the trunk, and no-nonsense demeanor. If there’s a better-looking big sedan than this, I’d like to see it.
All Impalas received a gray leather interior that was pure traditional American luxury. Big, wide seats, acres of legroom, and enough insulation to make the outside world seem very far away. Buckets and a console were standard, but the shifter was still on the column in 1995, so there’s useful storage space in the middle and it feels very familiar when you slide behind the wheel. Digital gauges were still a thing at GM, so you do get a digital speedometer flanked by simple analog gauges around its perimeter. Everything GM could imagine was standard equipment, including A/C (blows ice cold), power windows, locks, seats, and mirrors, a tilt steering column, rear defroster, cruise control, trip computer, and a decent-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo system. With so few miles and great care over the years, the leather remains in first-class condition and the padding underneath is still firm and comfortable, making this the ultimate road trip machine. Of course, something this big comes with a positively giant trunk, which is still outfitted with its original spare tire that’s never been used.
You couldn’t get the LT1-derived 5.7 liter V8 in anything other than the Impala SS, and that’s why these cars are special. Big V8 torque and a willingness to rev make the Impala feel smaller than it is and thanks to decades of development, they remain bulletproof reliable. They’re also insanely easy to modify for more performance, thanks to a booming aftermarket, but if you want one that hasn’t been screwed up by a backyard mechanic, look no further. From the air cleaner to the exhaust manifolds, this one remains 100% stock with only normal maintenance items replaced over the years. And like any late-model fuel-injected engine, it starts instantly, idles perfectly, and offers a big whack of low-end torque to get off the line.
Some of the greatness of its performance is attributable to the 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, which is durable and quick-witted enough to keep the V8 spinning in its sweet spot, but with a deep overdrive, it just loafs along on the highway. The SS also received a well-tuned suspension that’s almost an ideal blend of comfort and control, featuring expensive deCarbon shocks, which have been recently replaced on this car. You’ll note that the stock exhaust system is still intact, although the original mufflers have been replaced with Flowmasters that sound good without ever getting too noisy—it still cruises on the highway like a luxury car. 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS were standard equipment and you can see just by looking around underneath that this car has never seen any weather more severe than a spring rain shower. It also carries original 17-inch wheels, which were unique to the Impala SS and have been recently refinished, along with a set of new 255/50/17 performance radials.
Documentation includes the original window sticker, owner’s manual, warranty booklet, and wallet key.
These were cool cars in 1995 and this one cruises through traffic like a great white shark, bigger and meaner than anything around it. It’s awesome to see the way traffic scuttles out of your way when you’re hammering down the highway. Better yet, it’s supremely comfortable and serene inside in the best tradition of American luxury cars. It’s like having your cake and eating it, too. Call today!
