5.7 Liter SFI V8
Cars like this 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS are part of a great tradition. Every so often an American automaker takes their best performance engine and makes it available in a spacious full-size vehicle. The result is an instant classic that always gets to share the sporty fun with family and friends - especially when the is price as obtainable as this one.
Chevy really did a great job of giving the Caprice some cool attitude when creating the unique Impala SS. The bumpers, badges, and subtle spoiler blend so well with their body-colored presence. And these just look particularly nice in black. It seems to set the tone right for a powerful machine like this, and even the windows are deeply tinted for a true blackout look. This example has been treated with care, so while there are signs of use, it still knows how to shine correctly. Also, everyone loves to see those correct 17-inch alloys with Impala center cap filling the wheel wells. This package reminds us why these cars were appreciated from day one. In fact, 1996 the final year, and the moment GM closed the books on these Super Sports, the market started giving them classic-level appreciation. And we can absolutely understand why - no other car company was putting this much power and boldness into a full size-sedan.
Inside is the true treat for Impala fans. The gray leather is luxurious, and the GM B-body offers serious room for family and friends to spread out. You can easily keep all of them happy because this is loaded with features like power windows, power locks, cruise control, power mirrors, a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo, and ice-cold air conditioning. There\'s even the modern safety of dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. But even when it\'s just you, this Impala is a great machine. The front bucket seats power adjust so you can get the perfect driving position. The tilt wheel and center console mean your arms are never fatigued. This is the muscle car built for long haul comfort.
The Impala SS is a true legend thanks to the Corvette\'s LT1 V8. It\'s a special motor to have in this full-size sedan, and so we are glad to see it completely stock. The fuel-injected V8 barks to life easily, idles smoothly, and it pulls like a freight train. The four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive is smooth and always seems to be ready to leap into action. The suspension has been upgraded over the Caprice to handle the extra power with ease, and it comes with power steering, sway bars, and four-wheel disc brakes.
This is both a modern classic and an instant classic. So when a solid driving example is also exceptionally affordable, you know you can\'t pass up this deal. Call today!!!
