Chevy recently discontinued its fantastic SS sedan, which is a shame. It was one of the last true sleepers on the market, able to blend in with regular traffic, all while packing a 430-hp V8 under its hood. Since you can't buy a new SS anymore, and used ones aren't cheap (yet) we recommend this car, an ultra-clean, 70,000-mile 1996 Impala SS.
Sure, it might not be as fast or well-equipped as the newer SS, but there's no arguing the coolness of this Impala. It's aged incredibly well, with super mean and purposeful looks. Plus, the paint, interior, and engine bay on this particular example look immaculate, as do those awesome five-spoke wheels.
For the 1996 model year, the Chevy Caprice dropped its sweet digital speedometer, and moved its column-mounted shifter to the floor. This car retains its 5.7-liter V8 derived from the C4 Corvette's LT1, though, which is nice. And because this is an Impala SS, it gets a whole bunch of different styling cues, as well as police-spec heavy-duty suspension. Everything you need to fly under the radar.
With an asking price , this Impala SS is tens of thousands of dollars cheaper than the closest used Chevy SS. Sounds like a good deal to us.
