Classic Car Overview

1996 Chevrolet Impala SS In retrospect, it wasnt a good idea. It was brilliant. A stroke of genius. Looking back, its amazing the 1990s Impala SS ever happened. In the early 1990s, family-sized rear-wheel drive muscle was dead at GM. The Monte Carlo SS and Buick Grand National were long gone and families didnt fit in a Camaro or Corvette. Then in 1992, Jim Perkins, a car-guy and the man in charge of Chevrolet, asked Jon Moss to make a hot rod out of the homely and slow-selling Caprice, a full-size rear-wheel drive sedan bought by taxi companies, police, and women over the age of 90. Moss was the engineer in charge of GMs Special Vehicle group, or as some called it, The Toy Box . His team built the cool stuff. The What Ifs. Prototypes like big-block Camaros and other one-offs to excite the media and the enthusiast public. His skunkworks finished the Impala SS Concept just in time for the 1992 SEMA Show. Moss team took a black Caprice with the 9C1 Police Package, added five-spoke wheels, dropped in the LT1 V8 from the Corvette, dressed it with Impala SS badges (a legendary name GM hadnt used since 1969), and created an instant classic. An instant classic... just add gas, and we have a 2 owner 1996 Chevrolet Impala with a slightly detuned Corvette LT-1 engine, and in all original condition. With its rounded European aero look, 4 doors, and sporty wheels, no wonder police departments ordered these by the ton! Exterior All rounded off and aero looking and all bathed in maroon. A 4-door sedan with a kick, for the family who looks to travel in comfort, style and above all... speed. Beautiful prancing Impala badging throughout and a silver bowtie upfront all paint and trimmings are in fine condition with well minded gaps and all original paint. Throw in a sloping curved to the trunk deck B pillar and wrap around inset taillights and just say fast. Interior If you have a penchant for things from a factory, then this car is worth a serious look. Seats are covered with wonderfully aged gray leather and are buckets in front and a bench in the back. 6 way power adjusts these chairs. The original dash of course is in front showing off in black and gray, as are the door panels which contain more power buttons than a 747. Slightly soiled gray carpet below, also a perfect headliner in gray above. Drivetrain The garage within which this car was stored was climate controlled as the engine and bay are showing virtually no corrosion or any signs of ever being even remotely wet. Plastic is shiny, metal bolt ons are clean and corrosion free, and even the exhaust manifolds are still shiny. A detuned Corvette 5.7 liter LT-1 V8 with EFI resides under the hood and on the back is a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission. A 10 bolt 3.08 posi rear axle puts power to the road. Add some hi test go juice and you are down the road faster than you ever thought. Undercarriage Shows in slight aging but mostly surface rust free. Power disc ABS brakes, full coil suspension, and power disc brakes for the front, and power drums for the rear. Drive-Ability Runs like its namesake and nothing is even chasing it. Nimble handling, neck snapping acceleration and good solid handling. All with 4 doors and room for 5 comfortably, it can turn the highway into mush! If the police swear by it, Id take a close look because they are using these vehicles in all conditions, all situations, high speed, constantly running and they love them. Some come on into Classic Auto Mall and fall in love with this cruiser.
