Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
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 shining factory paint on this preserved example, it has been treated like a valued vintage vehicle since the beginning.
When you have a black car that has its factory finish retaining this much gloss and shine, you know someone treated it quite special. And unlike older classics, this comes from the era of factory clearcoats. So not only does this original paint retain a terrific luster, but also for many years to come, it's always just one buff away from being a true black mirror. And another reason why the car can look so right is because the whole body has been treated with respect. And averaging around 2,500 miles annually means this was never treated like a commuter. Everything on this one is neatly preserved and in good condition, from the urethane bumpers, to the integrated spoiler, 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. Low mileage also means less signs of use, and the leather remains supple and smooth. As the premium performance sedan, these were also loaded with the best features. It includes power front seats, cruise control, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, power mirrors, dual airbags, a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo, and ice-cold air conditioning. But more than luxurious, the Impala SS is one of the final few performance vehicles that has room for all your family and friends. It's even one of the few performance classics with a trunk big enough to be ready for a foursome golfing weekend.
The Impala SS is a true legend thanks to the Corvette's 350 cubic-inch LT1 motor. Take some time to look at the amazingly stock and clean condition of the engine bay. The fuel-injected V8 is the numbers-matching motor, and this nearly showroom-ready condition means they have invested in the right maintenance over the years. 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 transmission is always ready for a quick performance kickdown, and then it can settle back into overdrive comfort. The suspension has been upgraded over the Caprice to handle the extra power with ease, and it comes with power steering, upgraded shocks, four-wheel disc brakes (featuring ABS,) and sway bars front & rear.
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 packet 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!!!
