Highlights: This 1996 Impala SS is an absolute time capsule. With only 2,590 original miles and stored in a climate controlled room it's entire life this is a concours level example. This absolutely flawless example of the final year of the B-body is a perfect example of a current and future classic.
A Modern Day Classic:
The Impala SS features deeply contoured front bucket seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and full instrumentation. Amenities such as power windows and seats, a tilt steering wheel and an AM/FM and cassette sound system round out the goodies included with this performance sedan. In 1996, the column shifter was ditched in favor of a floor shifter, and a new analog instrument cluster featured a 160-mph speedometer and tachometer to replace the digital unit.
It goes without saying that great looks and features mean nothing if the car can't perform. Chevrolet gave the Impala SS an arsenal of equipment designed to help the car hug the road, including specially tuned de Carbon shocks and coil springs on each wheel, along with a special ride-and-handling suspension that helps keep the car firmly planted on those winding country back roads. Quick-ratio power steering and a limited-slip differential keep the driver in control when road conditions turn nasty. Large-diameter disc brakes and a 4-wheel anti-lock braking system bring the SS to a halt when the ride is over. Just like its predecessors, the SS is a car that has plenty of road manners, but when it's provoked, it can get down to business.
