Jon Moss Signature Series 95 Impala SS 71k miles

If someone makes me a fair offer for my 95 Impala SS, I will consider it. Time for the car to go because we had twins, and will need the money! However, we don't actually "NEED" the money for any specific thing and we will not take $4750, for example: make me a fair offer and we can talk. I am not greedy and refuse to work with greedy people, ever. It is a really nice Impala with interior flawless. Net is still in trunk, and lid is autographed by Jon Moss as part of a special event Chevy did in North Carolina as the 95 model launched. No one knows for sure, but people who have looked into this say there were likely around 150 of the Impalas that were included in the program(estimates I have seen vary between as low as 150 and as high as 375). It is cool though: I have never run across another one. I have often thought about how many are still on the road today. Not many is the probable answer...
100% STOCK WITH ORIGINAL CD PLAYER/RADIO, FLOOR MATS, ALL BADGING, WHEELS, AND MESH COVER STILL ON STEERING WHEEL(ALL STOCK except MUFFLERS-special edition "Delta" Flowmasters/2 chamber). 71K MILES- SECOND OWNER- CLEAN TITLE- NO ACCIDENTS OR FIRES OR FLOOD/STORM DAMAGE. VIN is available upon request. I got the Impala in 2006-07(literally on December 28 of 2006, and the car had 39,000 miles on it. I put under 3,000 miles a year on the car. I NEVER ABUSED IT, EVER. INCLUDING BURNOUTS UNLESS THE GROUND WAS SLICK FROM RAIN(NEVER HAVE I DONE A BRAKE-STAND IN ANY CONDITIONS, NEVER). I HAVE HAD THE CAR UP TO 175MPH WITH PEDAL REMAINING, BUT THATS REALLY THE EXTENT OF ABUSE SHE TOOK FROM MYSELF. I just changed the water pump, and omni spark(only because I was already right there after I took off water pump, and that was not exactly easy). It needs a heating core. Seeing how I was planning on selling her, I didn't want just anyone taking out the dash: figured whoever was buying it would have a friend they trusted to do that. I bypassed the heater core for now(so I can drive it a bit, and not have to sit it completely)... YOU CAN SEE THE CAR ON MY CRAIGSLIST ADD.

THANKS...

It's a tough crowd you'll be marketing this to. You want to attract the folks willing to pay top dollar to look at your vehicle... They aren't looking for a daily driver condition car.

Take your pictures in the daylight with the sun at your back. The picture you took under the bonnet shows the car is one one of the less common SS colors. Dark Cherry Metallic. It looks like the very common BLACK in all the pictures but that one because you took the pictures in a very very shaded location.

Take EVERYTHING out of the interior, blankets, shoes, etc before you snap pictures so you can showcase the flawless interior. You may want to detail it so it looks and smells pristine before potential buyers come to look at it.

I'm not trying to be nasty here. This one took me out of the running. Smoking cuts your target audience way way way down and there's nothing you can do but be up-front about it. My brother no longer smokes in his cars because it cost him $ on the last trade-in value... The crumpled pack of smokes tells me you smoked in the car. You can clean it so other smokers can't tell but... YOU WILL NEVER GET THAT SMELL OUT OF A CAR. A NON-Smoker can smell it. Count on it. That's just the way it is. F-Breeze vent clips ain't gonna do it. I can still tell my grandfather smoked in my pickup when he owned it... even after 20 years I catch whiffs of his White Owls. I put in new vinyl floor covering, headliner, Dash, Heater box, Ductwork, and seat along with a serious bath for all the hard plastic parts and interior metal. A good hot day brings out the Cigar smoke... LOL. The best you can do is just be up-front and honest about it with someone who asks. If they come to look anyway they'll appreciate your honesty.

The aftermarket 20's will be an immediate turn-off to anyone looking for originality. They will cost you dollars. If you don't have decent tires on the SS wheels at least take individual pictures of them so folks can see what the condition is. Yes they can buy brand new SS wheels but you're trying to get top $ and anyone that doesn't see the originals will factor replacements into their offer.

The clearcoat is peeling on the rear bumper and you don't have pictures of the roof or the top of the bonnet so folks are going to wonder about paint condition on a mid 90's GM vehicle. You have close to zero pictures of the outside of the car and you need em to sell it for top $. You need a LH, RH, Roof, Boot Lid, Bonnet, and the open Boot with nothing of yours inside... You may also want to clean up the underside of the bonnet and blow the leaves off the heater intake grille so it looks real pretty too.

Those are all really good suggestions. Ironically, I also saw the cigarette empties on the floor.

^^^^^^^Zero probability it went 175 miles an hour..... Perhaps the original poster was smoking something else besides cigarettes.

Prolly better to not tell the world you relentlessly flogged it at the track.

Actually Impala speed limiter was 154 but most hit an air wall a little short of that because the engine was BELOW peak HP with the 3.08 and OD. 175mph would take meaningful engine modification, heads/cam, headers full exhaust, probably 3.42 gears in the rear and a new driveshaft because the stocker hits a resonance frequency at about 156-158ish from memory where it begins to whip like a wet noodle and fails catastrophically, likely to total the car if you even survive because the end of the shaft left attached to the axle will keep spinning, possibly coming thru the floor or jamming into the road.

I still have a 96 Caprice, love the b-bodies BUT everyone and their brother expected the 94-96 Impala to be a collector car and so many were collected values will never be what folks dream.

Of course I am all wrong if this is one of the super rare big block cars that were never built but persist in myth.

"I HAVE HAD THE CAR UP TO 175MPH WITH PEDAL REMAINING, BUT THATS REALLY THE EXTENT OF ABUSE SHE TOOK FROM MYSELF."


I checked, and he did specify miles per hour (MPH)......

And he also indicated that he had pedal left, suggesting the car was capable of more than 175 mph.........

I can only imagine what a car like that would handle like even if you could get it to 175. It would be terrifying. I did it in a 911 turbo, which is more made for those kinds of speeds, and it was still sketchy.

Without mods, it just didn't happen. And if there were no suspension mods, even if they were engine mods, it would be a scary ride to say the least.

The fastest I've driven is 145 mph in my 300ZX twin turbo. That was plenty fast and scary enough for me. Now that car had more in it to keep going and was actually built for those kinds of speeds, but I didn't have the huevos to match.

I can just imagine. A big boat like that with squishy suspension traveling at 175mph.. not to mention the HP/weight ratio isnít the greatest so dodging cars while climbing to that speed sounds terrifying.

The Impala was reasonably firm and the long wheelbase helps stabilize things.

Surprised to here that. I figured that thing weaving through traffic would be terrifying, especially at those speeds.
