    95, 96, 97 Impala SS, which one!?

    I need help deciding between 3 different years of the same car. The car is the Chevrolet Impala SS, which they only made in 1995, 96, and 97. I haven't done alot of research, but I'm sure I could find out more with the minds of a few here. Anything you know about the 3 years, and any differences, advantages, etc.. Would help

    black was the only color the first year, they had a black cherry and a greyish green later. CARFAX before you buy, theres lots of fakes out there.

    The last of the rear wheel drive Chevy V-8 4-door sedans were built from 1994 to 1996 as the Impala SS. There are many web sites with information regarding these cars. Here is a good one to start at:

    http://www.impalaclub.com/naisso/home/

    They all have the same basic layout, with subtle differences with each year. In '94, it came with a column shifter and came in any color you wanted, as long as it was black. Also, the side view mirrors were mounted on the doors. In '95, they added a color: dark cherry metalic. They also moved the side view mirrors on top of the doors in the window area. In '96, they added another color: dark green grey metallic. They also put the shifter on the floor.

    In the lower left part of the web site above, there is a link to the "Impala SS History". It gives more details about all of the Impala SSs.

    It's a great car!! I've had my '96 for about 8 years now and still love to drive it every time I get in.
