    Needs hideaway headlights, but I understand why they weren't there. Also, Medium Sapphire Blue, EPIC color! The best GM ever had!

    Re: The '69 Chevy Impala SS Is the Best Muscle Car Ever

    Probably performed well in 69, but I've always wanted a 67 Impala SS 427, just loved the styling with the fastback roofline, and the bulged hood. I built a 67 Biscayne 2 door post before with a 454, but all said and done the car was just too spartan, it got kind of boring. I'd rather have the decoration of the Impala.

    I'm with erasmus. Can't beat the 454 SS. As for a truck- give me a Syclone!
    Get used to more.

    I would say The Judge but I can understand why the Impala SS is also the correct answer

    Today's Chevy SS will out-perform it in every way, so.......do we have a new "king"?

    I don't think you watched the video.

    No, we don't. SS is not a muscle car.

    In 1969, there was no such thing as a Impala SS, but there was an SS 427.

    There is a difference between the two.

    My buddy had SS 427 Impala, 4 on the tree with 410 gears. Thing passed everything but gas stations.

    Re: The '69 Chevy Impala SS Is the Best Muscle Car Ever

    I agree with the VID comment RE the 430 VS the SS and I would take the SS
    I like the "working mans HERO" aspect + the "I built it" aspect
    for full on muscle for me it is 1970 Chevelle coupe followed by the big 'cuda
    of that ERA of car I would want a mid sixties GTO

    You mean "4 on the floor?"

    My uncle had a blue 1967 Impala SS. 427, auto, optional floor console with gauge package. One of the most beautiful cars ever built.
