1996 Impala SS: The 1994-1996 Chevrolet Impala SS will go down in history as one of Chevrolet’s finest muscle cars. Chevrolet introduced the Impala SS concept in 1993 at the Detroit Auto Show. The car was dressed up in black paint and flashy wheels and featured a 300-horsepower LT1 engine. The concept was the brainchild of Jon Moss, the manager of General Motors’ Specialty Vehicle Group, and was such a hit that it went into production for the 1994 model year. It helped spawn the muscle-car sedan movement that later brought back other legendary nameplates such as the Mercury Marauder and Dodge Charger. When introduced in 1994, the Impala SS came in any color you wanted — as long as it was black. Saying the SS wore enough black paint to make Johnny Cash proud is an understatement. Looking somewhat like a modern day Batmobile, the monochromatic exterior was devoid of a flashy trim or chrome. Even the grille, taillight surrounds and rocker panels were decked out in black. For the 1995 and 1996 model years, Dark Cherry Metallic and Dark Green-Gray Metallic were added to the color palette. Inside, 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. One thing is for sure: The 1994-1996 Impala SS is a car that has retained its value over the years. A quick scan of listings online reveals prices close to sticker and above for low-mileage examples.
