1996 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan


We've had 2 '96 Impala SS' over the years. Both were adult driven and routinely maintained. The first one had 122,000 on it by the end of the 1999. At that point it was retired from duty, and we picked up another from a collector with a mere 1700 miles on it. The second now has over 250,000 miles on the original LT1 motor, 4L60E transmission and 8.5 10 bolt posi rear end. Burns no oil, and starts up every time. Only fixes have been a starter, an A/C compresser and a harmonic balancer. These are just great cars that hold thier value.

Best Features

Full sized, rear wheel drive V8.

Worst Features

It's a shame they never made them for more than 3 years. It would have been an astounding performer with an optional 6 speed manual.
