On the 1957 auto show circuit Chevrolet unveiled a show car based on its Corvette and dubbed 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 6-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: 50 Years of Super Sport provides a close-up, detailed, full-color look at such beloved muscle cars as the Chevelle, the Camaro, the El Camino, the Malibu, and the Monte Carlo. The book is a fittingly elegant celebration of the cars that redefined “high performance” and defined an era.
From the Inside Flap:
During the classic muscle car era, American cars meant performance. Driving an American muscle car meant driving the baddest machine on the road. Every detail of the cars backed this up. Engine badges gave other street racers a clue as to just how badly they were about to be stomped in a stoplight drag race. Even the striping meant something, and no stripes meant as much as the twin skunk stripes running from the hood to the trunk of Chevrolet’s mighty Super Sports. Regardless of which Super Sport model those stripes graced—agile Camaros with lightweight small blocks and fabulous F41 suspensions, luxurious Impalas with their monstrous big-block engines, or LS6-equipped Chevelle 454SSs with the most powerful engine of the entire muscle-car era—the name “Super Sport” screamed mind-bending performance.
Super Sport: 50 Years of Chevy Muscle relives the complete story of these iconic automobiles, from the Corvette racing prototype of 1957 to the V-8-powered Super Sports of the 21st century. With new photography of all major Super Sport models, this book is the first book to do justice to Chevrolet’s fantastic Super Sports.
