Inspired by pictures of a custom Chevy Caprice, GM executive Jim Perkins ordered up a custom B-Body show car for the 1992 Detroit International Auto Show. Debuting as the Impala SS, the 500 cubic inch monster was such a phenomenon that, within 18 months, GM rolled the first Impala SS street car into Chevrolet showrooms. For just three short years in the mid-1990s these modern muscle cruisers fronted a trend that most of us didn't even know existed: hot, rear-wheel-drive, full-size sedans. Now, 25 years later, the B-Body Impala's undeniable collectability ensures that these beats STILL trade hands at original sticker price or more!

THE BRAND IN BLACK

Coming from a brand that was synonymous with legends like Dale Earnhardt and Jon Moss, it seems fitting that the Impala SS is most well-known for small block power and menacing aesthetics. Sporting original Black paint that's backed by a clean CARFAX Report, this 2,173-mile time capsule was pampered by just one owner until late 2019. And, averaging a scant 95 miles per year, the car rolls as an exclusive collector piece that's been a protected toy from DAY ONE!

The sedan's serious digs kick off with a unique, single bar grille that floats a chrome bowtie between a body-matched bumper and clean Twilight Sentinel Headlamps. Behind that grille, a smooth hood founds chrome-trimmed glass between a power antenna and pillar-mounted mirrors. At the sides of that hood, radiused wheel arches frame tasteful blackout door guards and flush blackout door handles in front of sporty “Impala SS” quarter scripts. And at the back of the car, a second monochromatic bumper bends between polished exhaust tips, a legendary Impala badge, distinct taillights and a subtle deck spoiler.

SMALL BLOCK FOR LIFE!

While a Chevy this sinister couldn't have just any old engine, the show car's 500+ cubic inch big block just wasn't practical. Not to worry since GM usually has quite a few excellent V8s hanging around, and dipping into the Corvette parts bin for a few 350 cubic inch LT1s seemed a natural solution. The Impala SS-exclusive LT1 utilizes cast iron heads and a slightly tweaked cam to turn an easy 260 horsepower into 330 lb./ft. of quick torque. Of course, to make sure the car's accessories communicate with its fresh engine, Chevrolet had to install a higher output electrical system and a high capacity reverse flow cooling system. The result was a durable package that, routinely hammered by police forces and taxi drivers, is known for logging hundreds of thousands of miles.

That choice engine is backed by a reliable 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission that's equipped with a factory transmission cooler. That transmission spins a limited-slip differential around mild, 3.08 gears. Holding that tough drivetrain in place is a larger-gauge frame that, along with this Chevy's sport-tuned suspension, was lifted directly from the Caprice's hugely successful 9C1 Police Package. At the front of the car, a traditional double A-arm suspension benefits from quick-ratio power steering, a larger front stabilizer bar and DeCarbon gas shocks. At the back of the car, a rugged 4-link suspension includes a second beefy stabilizer bar and reinforced springs that were borrowed directly from the Corvette. At the corners of those one-inch-lowered bones, standard ABS clamps four calipers around 12-inch discs. Retrofitted Flowmaster exhaust lets the LT1 sing in all its glory. And striking, brushed aluminum wheels ride pliable 255/50ZR17 Nitto NT555 G2s.

AMERICAN TOUR DE FORCE

Leather was the only choice in the Impala SS and, in this classic, it remains in excellent, showroom-fresh condition. Naturally, part of the Impala SS package was embroidered logos on both the car's power-operated buckets and fixed bench. Straight-on, a pristine dash cages 1996-exclusive analog gauges above factory climate control and a factory stereo that's wired to a retrofitted, 10-disc CD changer. A 1996-exclusive console centers a simple shifter between a small armrest and a snazzy Impala badge. Padded door panels hug chrome buttons for power windows, power mirrors and power door locks that are sequenced to standard Remote Keyless Entry. And the driver spins a Camaro-style, Impala SS-exclusive steering wheel around a tilting column that's finished with standard Cruise Control.

Through the years, original, unmodified B-Body Impalas have remained rock-solid values. And, as more and more of these classics are modified or just plain used up, cars like this low-mile beast are poised to continue gaining value. If you've been looking for some clean modern muscle to show and have fun with, you'll be hard pressed to find a better car than this exclusive, final-year SS!
