Small-Block Chevy Performance 1955-1971 by John Baechtel

 

In the 1960s, Chevrolet found a way to bottle lightning - they called it Super Sport.

A combination of appearance and performance upgrades, the SS package could turn something as pedestrian as a 6-cylinder Malibu into the fire-breathing Chevelle SS396.
An SS emblem on the side of a Chevy gave notice to the world that this car had the right stuff.
This book is the complete history of the mighty Super sports, beginning with the Impala SS and continuing through the SS versions of the Chevy II Nova, Chevelle, Camaro and Monte Carlo.
Packed with information on body trim, interior trim, engines,and options, this history will take you through each model, year-by-year - from the first package offered in 1961 to the 1996 Impala and the 2000 monte carlo.

With an almost hypnotic power, Impala transformed Chevrolet brand loyalty into blind devotion . Combining basic, inexpensive transportation with luxury and power, Impala became a symbol
of style, flair and success.
During the 1960s, Impala sales steamrolled nearly every car in its path, establishing itself as the undisputed king of the American highway.
From the model's first appearance in 1958 to the glorious 409-, 396-, and 427-powered legends of the 1960s to today's family cruiser, this book explores Impala's development, dominance, demise and reincarnation.
With 80 new colour photos and rare archival colour images plus 40 black & white shots and period advertisements, you are sure to see your favourite Impala convertible, coupe or sedan.
