Chevrolet Impala SS

 

 

1st Generation 1958-1969

 

2nd Generation 1994-1996

 

The Chevrolet Impala is often credited with helping start the muscle car era. As Chevrolet's top of the line model, the Impala quickly became the symbol for performance. The Impala began as the top option level on Chevrolet's Bel Air line. Chevrolet's 1958 lineup featured one year only styling that had curves where before there were lines. The Impala option added special trim and deluxe interiors. The public's positive response lead to Chevrolet making the Impala a separate option for the next year.

2nd Generation 1994-1996

 

In 1994, 25 years after the last Impala rolled off the assembly lines in 1969 Chevrolet brought back the Impala SS, to add some flash to its fullsize Chevrolet Caprice. Though it only lasted three model years, it was a fitting tribute to the great Impala's of the 1960s. Sporting a high performance V8, rear wheel drive, and a stylish body to match its performance, the Impala SS was truly a modern muscle car.
