Description - Chevy Ss by Robert Genat
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 Chevys Super Sport version of its popular Impala, which marked the dawn of the muscle car era, to todays 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.
