Description:

The true measure of great cars is their long-term value to collectors. The 1996 Impala SS was special when it was new, but it has only been in the last several years that we''ve learned just how special it really was. As the last rear-wheel-drive, body on frame sedan built by GM, it does hold a place of distinction. But add in a Corvette-sourced LT1 under the hood, an athletic suspension, and that distinctive monochromatic paint job, and you have a slam-dunk of a collector car that STILL sells for sticker price 15 years after it went out of production. Special? You''d better believe it. It''s safe to assume that the guys who bought these cars new realized that they were buying a piece of history. As a result, cars like this 72,000-mile original are often beautifully preserved. Black was the most popular choice, and looks spectacular on the big sedan''s bodywork. This one is 100% original, with no accidents or panel replacements, and the finish is amazingly well preserved. Credit the car''s amazing condition to clean living with an owner who never used it as a daily driver. Heck, there are barely any marks on the nose, which often takes a brunt of the abuse. The blacked-out grille is as new, the chin spoiler doesn''t show scuffs from driveway aprons, and all the Impala emblems are factory original. Impressive. The only interior available with the Impala was gray leather with buckets and a console. This one shows only minor signs of use, certainly in line with the mileage. The front seats show some stretching, but no splits, tears, or discoloration, and the leather remains supple and smooth. The back seat, however, looks brand new, and if there have been more than a handful of passengers back there over the past 15 years, it would be a surprise. The gauges are 100% functional, and it even retains the original Delco AM/FM/CD stereo. Of course, everything was included with the SS such as A/C, power windows and locks, and cruise control. Power comes from GM''s indestructible 5.7 liter LT1 V8, which makes 260 horsepower in the Impala. Mated to a 4-speed automatic, it''s the same powertrain that struck fear into the hearts of motorists living inside black and white police cruisers. Properly maintained from new, the engine bay looks fresh off the showroom floor, and drives like it should. And unlike many Impalas, this one has not been modified in any way, right down to the exhaust system and those gorgeous 17-inch aluminum wheels. 4-wheel discs were included, as well as a heavy-duty suspension, giving the Impala moves that belie its size and comfort. The Impala SS is a rare machine, not just in terms of production, but in that it is a car that instantly created and ended a niche market, defined a segment, and ended an era. That alone ensures collectability, but the fact that it is also a party to drive makes this one to own for yourself. Call today!
