Full-size comfort, the Corvette's fuel-injected V8, and a distinct style all its own have all made the 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS a muscle car with modern flair. So it's great to find a loaded example that's coming off of long-term ownership. It makes for a car that has great paperwork and meticulous care, as well as the right upgraded to be a better cruiser.
This sedan has just crossed over into the magic 25-year-old threshold. That makes it eligible for antique/classic car plates in many states. So you really understand what we mean when we call this one a modern classic. Plus, this example spent over 20 years with the same owner, and that means it has been treated like a classic even before the states did. But we know why it commands respect. The Impala SS unlocked the sporty side of the aerodynamic Caprice design. It looked meaner and sleeker thanks to the color-matched grille, sport mirrors, and rear spoiler. That's why a dark/mean color like Dark Cherry looks so good on this one. It also helps that this factory-correct finish has a great shine and the body panels look terrific thanks to decades of meticulous care. But this car is more than just stock. The lowered stance and 20-inch Foose wheels show off tastefully sporty upgrades that are also part of a better driving package.
One of the reasons why this Impala SS is so special is because it follows a grand tradition. We expect a car that's sporty, roomy, and loaded...and this one really delivers. That means a full leather upholstery and full-size legroom (making it a family-sized sports car.) It has all the best features, like power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, power mirrors, and ice-cold air conditioning. And the full stereo system has been upgraded with a Kenwood head unit that features Bluetooth and modern speakers with a power JL subwoofer. There's even the modern safety of dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. Plus, it's a true driver's car with power-adjusting front bucket seats, a tilt steering column, armrest center console, and a full gauge package with large speedo and tach.
The Impala SS is a true legend thanks to the Corvette's fuel-injected LT1 V8. This is part of the small block family, and so you know it loves upgrades. That's why this one inhales deeper with cold air intake, and it exhales with added power and rumble with BBK headers feeding the dual exhaust. As you look underneath, there are nice performance components, like Bilstein shocks, lowering springs, and Hotchkis front and rear sway bars. The four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive means a highway-ready experience. And the upgraded Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors mean superior stopping power.
The sale comes complete with the original window sticker and owner's manual. This is the well-respected true modern classic that also loves to be driven. So it makes for an irresistible deal. Call today!!!
