a box and come with teh car. Drives great and there are no excuses to be made for this Impala! The production run

’94-’96 Impala SS Guide:
retrospect, the production of the ’94 Impala SS seemed obvious. In its
basic form, the SS was just a modern take on the original recipe for
the Impala SS: a high-performance engine in Chevrolet’s fullsize car.
However, the car market wasn’t what it was in 1969, the last time an
Impala wore an SS badge. In the early ’90s, auto manufacturers were
finally learning how to make power while still meeting emissions
guidelines. Powerful, rear-wheel-drive sedans were only available from
the likes of BMW. That was about to change.
Impala SS concept was the brainchild of Jon Moss, then-manager of
Chevrolet Special Vehicles. The B-body Caprice, redesigned in 1991 into
the unflatteringly nicknamed “Orca” body style, wasn’t exactly setting
the sales charts on fire. In late 1992, Jim Perkins, the general
manager of Chevrolet, asked Jon if he could come up with a way to wake
up sales. Jon’s goal was to build a concept car that would easily
translate to production. He called upon TDM to take a police-spec
Caprice 9C1, add an LT1 engine, and lower the suspension by an inch.
Vehma, a division of Magna International, did the bodywork, which
included the spoiler, the grille, and the badging. The concept was
created in only 14 days, just in time for the SEMA Show. Few people
outside of the build team even knew about it before it was unveiled.
Throughout the development, the only thing that surprised Jon was the
tremendous response it got from the enthusiast public. When Chevrolet
took the concept to the National Automobile Dealers Association
convention in 1993, they received somewhere in the neighborhood of
3,000 orders, enough to nudge the Impala SS into production for the
1994 model year.
production Impala SS brought a lowered suspension, De Carbon shocks,
12.1-inch disc brakes, and 17-inch aluminum wheels with Z-rated tires
to the B-body ladder frame. It differentiated itself with a monotone
grille and body molding, a spoiler, and a unique C-pillar window shape,
thanks to an applique that contained a new iteration of the bounding
Impala emblem. The Impala SS was only available in black for 1994; Dark
Cherry Metallic and Dark Grey Green were added in 1995.
heart of the Impala SS is the LT1 V8, which pumped 260 hp and 330 lb-ft
of torque through a column-shifted 4L60 transmission. The police-fleet
market had asked for more power when the SS concept was being
developed, so the LT1 was already on the drawing board. All GM B-body
cars would have likely received the LT1 in 1994, regardless of whether
the Impala was produced.
you’re in the market for a used Impala SS, we’ve found they can be had
starting at around $5,000, with well-kept models coming in around
$9,000. While 260 hp made them quite a fun ride back in 1994,
cylinder-head and cam design have come a long way since then, so you
should be able to wake one up nicely with a few bolt-ons, though the
LT1, Gen II small-block is a bastard engine with reverse cooling
(requiring dedicated cylinder heads) and a front-mounted Opti-spark
distributor. A Chevrolet Performance E-Rod, LS3 crate-engine swap is
also a possibility on the ’94 and ’95 for 50-state emission compliance
if numbers-matching isn’t your thing.
The ’96 version finally got a floor shifter, which happens to be Moss’
personal favorite, though we prefer the column shift and the console
with the cupholders in the ’94s and ’95s.
The ’94 Impala and Caprice exterior rearview mirrors were mounted on
stalks. The ’95-’96s have them tucked at the corners of the side glass.
- The option codes for the Impala SS from ’94–’96 were BN5, BL5, and 1SS, respectively.
Callaway offered a 404hp, 383-powered Supernatural Impala SS. The
package cost $25,345 on top of the $24,405 base price in 1995. It ran
the quarter-mile in 14.0
seconds in a Motor Trend test.
- The original concept car was later treated to a 540ci big-block. Much later, Rick Hendrick bought it at Barrett-Jackson.
- Tim Allen owns a 6.3L, LT5-powered SS–the Binford 6100.
- Prior to the LT1, the 7th-gen Caprice was sold with three different V8s with a max output of 180hp.
The Impala’s predecessor, the Caprice, had rear quarter-panels that
covered the top part of the tire in the ’91–’92 models. The ’93–96
models have semi-
circular rear-wheel openings.
Picks: Overall this Impala looks almost new inside and out, the paint is excellent and the front bumper
cover and hood have little to no rock pecks, original windshield shows no signs of wear and there is no
warping or cracks in the dash or any issues with the interior leather, etc. The body has no marks and
shows very well. CarFax report is clean and shows good service history. Both sets of rims are excellent
and have no scuffs or mentionable issues. Very very nice condition and ready to enjoy! Really not much
to nitpick on this car - even at 22 years old. Obviously very well cared for and maintained. All the lights
work, all the ancillary items are in place, cold a/c and hot heat. An extremely nice car with great original
low mileage! Nothing else to reasonably fault - Photos show the condition so please request & review them.
