Chevy SS: The Super Sport Story
On the 1957 auto show circuit, Chevrolet unveiled a show car based on its Corvette and dubbed it the Super Sport. The performance car world took one look and never looked back. A combination of styling and performance upgrades, the SS package could turn something as mundane as a six-cylinder Malibu into the fire-breathing Chevelle SS396. This book traces the long line of legendary SS models, from Chevy s Super Sport version of its popular Impala, which marked the dawn of the muscle car era, to today s Impala SS. Featuring the work of acclaimed photo ace David Newhardt, Chevy SS: The Super Sport Story provides a close-up, detailed, full-color look at such classic muscle cars as the Chevelle, the El Camino, the Malibu, and the Monte Carlo as well as today's hot Camaro SS. The book is a fittingly elegant celebration of the cars that redefined high performance and defined an era.
