In 1957 Chevrolet displayed a stunning Corvette-based show car on the auto show circuit, calling the car the "Super Sport." While it would be a few years before this soon-to-be fabled name plate would grace a production car, the SS signaled a clear shift in the performance car world. At the dawn of the muscle car era Chevrolet introduced the Super Sport version of its popular Impala, marking the first in a long line of legendary SS models.
These included rip-snorting versions of such beloved muscle cars as the Chevelle, the Camaro, the El Camino, the Malibu, the Monte Carlo, right up to todays Impala SS. Featuring the stunning photography of acclaimed photo ace David Newhardt, "Chevy SS: 50 Years of GM Muscle" will be the ultimate book for fans of Chevrolets performance cars.
