1995 Chevrolet Impala SS
1995 Chevrolet Impala SS
Residing on the African Savannah and confronted with a threat, the sleek, nimble, and fast Impala will take flight to outrun or confuse its competitor. Aptly named, the Chevrolet version introduced in 1958, continued to emulate its animal namesake through years of design modifications, and power options made available.
This black beauty brings a shudder to my mind. As a frequent speeder, I've ingrained the Impala shape in my mind that I need to slow down in anticipation it is not the po po awaiting my quick arrival to their radar in their unmarked cruiser (this Impala). Now they patrol in anything, so that theory is gone by the wayside, however it still sticks in my mind!
Beautifully straight all steel panels draped in deep gloss black base coat, and clear coat, are seen throughout this 4 door car. Virtually dent free, the car's exterior paint could be said to be in all but showroom condition. All correct badging, and bumpers are attached, with a hint of chromed trimmings around the side glass, all else is menacing black. 17” cast aluminum wheels are seen all around and add some bright spots to the corners.
Gray leather on bucket seats in front, and a full bench in back shows in slightly worn condition. A leather wrapped steering wheel, leather door panels, and vinyl padded dash with cobalt blue digital readouts for speed and odometer, are adorning the passenger compartment as well. All power conveniences, power windows, power steering, power brakes, power locks, AM/FM seek scan radio/CD player are within the confines of this interior with most controls conveniently located in the doors. Twilight sentinel sensor turns the headlights on for you when it is the perfect time. Don't forget the tinted glass all around as well. Somewhat soiled grey carpet floods the floors, and above is a tight gray headliner.
A 350ci LT1 EFI V8 with a super smooth 4-speed 4L60E automatic transmission recently rebuilt, with only 1K miles clocked on it, takes you down the road in a breeze. The 10-bolt 3.08 rear axle aids this getting down the road as well. Engine bay is in overall fair to good condition with slight corrosion and aging shown.
Plenty of patina and some surface rust on drivetrain parts and front structure are noted underneath. Floorpans are solid, rockers have slight surface rust, and new Pypes mufflers are now installed with a stainless X exhaust setup. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners, and the consigner states that new rotors, as well as the calipers, hoses and lines.
The ride and drive suspension and Decarbon shocks as well as a limited slip axle contribute to the smoothness of the ride. This car started right up and was ready to go. Most of its miles were logged on highways commuting from PA to DC so I cruised a bit, and it ran swimmingly. I noted the power antenna does not work, otherwise everything is all buttoned up.
Seen here at Classic Auto Mall a near perfect exterior, and nice all leather interior, fair engine bay, and underside, but a smooth quick starting engine, and almost undetectable shifting transmission, in combination with all the convenience options, offer a great combination for the classic Chevrolet which had a run of nearly 40 years.
