1996 Chevrolet Impala SS
Residing on the African Savannah and confronted with a threat, the sleek, nimble, and fast Impala will take flight to outrun or confuse its competitor. Aptly named, the Chevrolet version introduced in 1958, continued to emulate its animal namesake through years of design modifications, and power options made available.
This black beauty brings a shudder to my mind. As a frequent speeder, I\'ve engrained the Impala shape in my mind that I need to slow down in anticipation it is not the Po Po awaiting my quick arrival to their radar in their unmarked cruiser, (the Impala). Now they patrol in anything, so that theory is gone by the wayside, however it still sticks in my mind! Here we have a 1996 SS, and it\'s from rust free Texas. It\'s never been in snow or salt, and just took a trip in August to Kentucky with no problems. A low 54,191 original miles and well cared for now ready to be run after and from.
Beautifully straight all steel panels draped in deep gloss black base coat, and clear coat, are seen throughout this car. Virtually dent free, the car\'s exterior could be said to be in all but showroom condition. All correct badging, and neoprene body matching black bumpers are attached, even a black texture strip is on either side below the beltline. 17\" cast aluminum wheels are seen all around and add some bright spots to the corners, otherwise it\'s all menacing black.
Gray leather on a 6 way power, (drivers side), wide bucket seats in front, and a full bench in back shows in very nice condition. A leather wrapped steering wheel, leather door panels, and gray padded dash are adorning the passenger compartment as well. All power conveniences, power windows, power steering, power brakes, power locks, AM/FM seek scan radio/CD player. Many of which the controls are at the driver\'s fingertips right on the big doors. Twilight sentinel sensor turns the headlights on for you when it is the perfect time. Don\'t forget the trunk as it\'s covered in felting and looks just fab!
The 350ci LT1 V8 with a super smooth 4L60E 4-speed automatic automatic transmission takes you down the road in a breeze. It has EFI and a 10 bolt 3.08 posi rear axle. Overall, the engine bay is clean and has just a bit of corrosion on the cast aluminum parts, but all is clean.
Slight surface rust on the cast parts, otherwise like new fresh painted stamped steel abounds for the floor pans. Independent coil spring suspension is on front, and a 4 link with coil springs on back. Power disc braking is on all 4\'s and the exhaust is original equipment.
A quick starter and after a brief warmup, she ran great on the test track. Nice acceleration, bias free panic stopping, and all functions were working swimmingly.
Seen here at Classic Auto Mall a near perfect exterior, and nice all leather interior, fair engine bay, and underside, but a smooth quick starting engine, and almost undetectable shifting transmission, in combination with all the convenience options, offer a great combination! Runs like an impala, accelerates like a cheetah, and has the heart of a lion, can you say Serengeti Plain? Take a safari to our Hallowed Halls to have a look at this animal.
