132694 / 1994 Chevrolet Impala SS
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cr3zgxz With only 1,189 miles on its odometer, this 1994 Impala SS is a showroom new super low mile time capsule that is a close to perfect as a factory built car can get. In 1994, you could order a brand new Impala SS in any color you wanted as long as it was black; and coming from a brand that was synonymous with Dale Earnhardt race cars and custom Jon Moss creations, I can't think of anything more fitting. With absolutely no rain spots and no fading, this stealthy street bruiser's basecoat/clearcoat paint is in spectacular shape and it likely hasn't seen much of the sun or rain during its entire 17 year existence. Under that paint, 100% factory sheetmetal provides an OEM level of fit and finish that creates a mint condition muscle car which looks, feels and drives just like it rolled off the showroom floor. A car that looks this evil couldn't have just any engine, either. Chevrolet dipped into the Corvette parts bin and pulled out a 350 cubic inch LT1 engine, slapped on some durable cast iron heads, threw in a different camshaft that improved low-end torque to move the cars large mass and, voila! The Impala exclusive LT1 generates 260 horsepower and a neck-snapping 330 lb./ft. of torque just off idle. Of course, you have to make sure the car's accessories communicate with the new engine properly, so a higher output electrical system and a high capacity reverse flow cooling system were also added for the sake of drivability. These engines are virtually indestructible, and with good maintenance practices, over 100,000 miles is not uncommon. What else would you expect from a package that was routinely hammered by police forces and taxi drivers across the country? Backing up the cars torque rich LT1 is GM's reliable 4L60E electronically controlled 4-speed automatic transmission that is equipped with a factory transmission cooler. Behind that transmission, a set of 3.08 gears combine with a limited slip differential to provide easy high-speed cruising and surprisingly good fuel economy for such a large car. Holding that tough drivetrain in place is a larger gauge metal frame that, along with the cars sport tuned suspension was lifted directly from the Caprice's hugely successful 9C1 police package. At the front of the car a traditional double A-arm suspension benefits from quick-ratio power steering, a larger front stabilizer bar and DeCarbon gas pressure shocks. At the back of the car, a rugged 4 link suspension includes a second beefy stabilizer bar and reinforced springs that were borrowed directly from the Corvette. Standard four-wheel, 12 inch diameter ventilated disc brakes and 4-wheel ABS handle the stopping duties, and the factory dual Exhaust system allows the hot engine to breathe, but retains a quietness and civility that is perfect given the cars luxury sport mission. At the corners, striking 17 inch brushed aluminum wheels ride on fresh 255/50 BF Goodrich Comp T/A radials. For 1994, the Impala SS interior received some welcome upgrades from the already luxurious Caprice cockpit. Leather was the only choice in the Impala, and in this car it remains in excellent showroom fresh condition. Part of the Impala SS package was embroidered "SS" logos in the front headrests and a traditional Impala logo at the center of the rear bench, and both look factory new with no staining or picks. The carpet shows few signs of use and has been protected by factory carpeted floor mats since new, and above the seats, a contoured mouse fur headliner shows no signs of staining or fading. The Impala exclusive leather wrapped steering wheel is more akin to the wheel in a Camaro than a luxury car, and excellent looking padded door panels are trimmed with chrome button for the cars power windows and power door locks. Behind the steering wheel, a pristine dash houses digital GM gauges, controls for the cars climate system and an optional stereo system. If you've been looking for some clean modern muscle to show and have fun with, you'll be hard pressed to find a better car than this essentially brand new 1994 Impala SS!
