This 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS represents a modern take on a true classic and it runs and drives great. It's lightly travelled for a car from its era, and from all appearances, it's seen plenty of attentive care during its life, combining a still-fresh, terrific looking exterior and a clean, inviting interior with eager V8 power under its hood.

It's got quite a storied lineage as its model dates all the way back to the late '50s, when it would undergo quite a number of changes in very short order while being transformed into a coveted fixture on America's boulevards. After being put on a nearly decade long hiatus, Impalas reemerged in their seventh generation form not long before this one's arrival, equipped with a reshaped exterior and a road-hugging stance that was noticeably lower to the ground than its sedan stablemate the Caprice. Enhanced SS versions like this one arrived shortly after, offering upgraded power to pair with the model's considerable spaciousness. The striking teal shade draped over the exterior of this '96 provides a distinctive look and still has its nice shine and smooth finish - a comprehensive detailing would make it stand out even more. A well-aligned exterior, sharp badging and clean array of chrome ornamentation provide evidence that this Chevy has spent most of its down time in a sheltered environment.

Climb inside and you'll see plenty of additional evidence this Impala has been treated with respect. Its gray leather interior is still strong, with plush, contoured front buckets that show minimal wear and sit over matching gray carpet in the same condition. The center console appears clean and shows very little of the discoloration that usually comes with more than 20 years of service and farther forward on the dash area, all the factory gauges, lights and switches function smoothly. Being a relatively modern-day muscle car has its decided benefits as far as comfort and convenience options. This Chevy has its fair share of them, including power windows and door locks, a tilt wheel, cruise control, power seats, and an AM/FM/CD player to provide your audio soundtrack while behind the wheel. Driver and passenger airbags offer an added measure of safety and the remote door opener is a welcome feature that was relatively scarce only a few years prior to this Chevy's arrival. The trunk area is in good order, with a neatly covered spare on board inside.

Consistent care and relatively light usage have definitely paid dividends here, as this Chevy runs and drives nicely. Its electronically fuel injected 5.7 liter V8 springs into action quickly and pulls with plenty of conviction, amplified by an added K&N cold air induction system and combining with a smooth shifting 4-speed automatic transmission whose overdrive gear brings RPMs way down at highway speeds. Take a peek under the hood and you'll see a collection of components that still seem plenty fresh after more than two decades. The Impala's substantial wheelbase combines with a 4-link rear suspension - the same configuration featured in a multitude of aftermarket performance projects - to provide a smooth, agile ride, while power disc brakes at all four corners bring prompt, fade-resistant stops to the set of 17" stock Impala SS wheels wrapped with Kumho Ecsta tires. Below, the undercarriage looks just as solid as you'd expect, given the clean condition of the rest of the car.

Well-powered and in rock solid driving condition, this 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS offers the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a nicely preserved Chevy sedan boasting a heritage few models can match. Call today!
