There are many of us who wished we stashed away a deep-red Corvette-powered 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS back in the day. And at least one person actually did, because this one is a true time capsule that hasn't even reached 500 miles on the odometer yet. So if you're looking for one of the most desirable modern classics that has also been awesomely preserved, you already know this Chevy is it. Here's absolutely the one for collectors. After all, you know this one has been treated with the utmost respect if it has traveled barely over 450 miles in the last 25 years. And reaching the quarter-century mark is another important distinction, because it makes this eligible for vintage/antique car benefits in many states. The Dark Cherry paint is the factory application, and it retains a nice metallic tone that lets this deep/dark color also radiate whenever the sunshine finds the sheetmetal. This level of preservation comes from a car that has been kept in the family. The only owners have been a father and son. It has even been properly stored, so you will find very few signs of use ever. And we can understand exactly why a car like this would be treated with such respect. This was the final year that shut the door on these special Impala SS sedans. Just like some of the best Impalas before it, they combined full-size utility with true sporting power. And they certainly loved to show off this performance nature by taking the B-body's aerodynamic style and giving it modern flair. The aggressive grille, color-matched trim, dual exhaust tips, and well-integrated rear spoiler gives the impression of fast with class. And the lack of big chrome on the body means we all really pay attention to the shine of the special 17-inch alloys. But the most impressive part is how it all fits together. Because you can always really see the extra quality in a car that has been cared for correctly. Such low mileage also means there was hardly any time to even put a wrinkle in the leather interior. So you'll love everything from the crisp SS stitching on the headrests to the way this unmistakably still has the new car smell. And while this one basically feels like it has never been used, an Impala SS is really beloved for the level of function and comfort it offers. It has a full-size back seat that accommodates up to three adults, and the trunk can hold everybody's luggage - including golf clubs. And everyone is comfortable with a long list of features, like cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual airbags, cruise control, and the Delco AM/FM/CD stereo. And because this is also built to be a true sports car, you have power-adjusting front bucket seats with a center console in-between. The floor shifter, tilt steering column, and full gauges are also there to get you comfortable in this performance sedan. Under the hood is the 5.7-liter LT1 V8 shared with the C4 corvette. This fuel-injected powerhouse looks factory-fresh, and on a one-family car, it also is the original motor. So this one has pedigree and a presentation that you'll love to show off. Of course, we also know you won't be able to resist adding to the ultra-low odometer. These Impala SS cars were upgraded beyond the engine bay to include a better suspension that knew how to sharper without losing the overall comfortable ride. The four-speed automatic transmission is a great pairing that has quick kick-downs into power as well as easy shifting into overdrive. There's also four-wheel power disc brakes w/ABS, power steering, and grippy BF Goodrich gForce tires. The sale of this time capsule even comes with the original dealer invoice. It all makes for the ultimate preserved Impala SS. So if you're a true collector, you know you need to call today!
