Being an owner of several b-body's over the years and a current owner of a 95 and 96 Impala SS this install is perfect, except for the spot you mounted the single talons. They are more effective closer to the deck but they are a pain in the ass to install up against the windshield. Also what warning lights do you have in the front window/ dash?

Sweet car. The color is great and the install is very good. Looking forward to vids.


Just curious, what is the car used for? Confused by the radar but lack of a 2 way radio if it is for an LEO.

I did a engine rebuild on a 1995 SS Impala about six months ago,they have the same engine as your car here.They are very strong.The owner of the one I worked on said he has had it 167.00 mph before on the interstate,an that was without the 200 horsepower shot of Nitrous Oxide System we installed on it.Your car is very clean and sweet.

I've clocked mine at 172 MPH by GPS since my speedo only goes up to 160.

Holy crap! If you passed me at that speed, even if I was going 80 in the same direction, I would just let you be. I;m sure I'll see you in a few miles... and then another part of you... then another :D


OP: That is a good looking car. I would almost say trade out the LED's for something that was used when the car was in service, but it's a very nice set up.

Note: That was on a closed track, i wouldn't advise anyone to do that on a public highway or interstate, too much shit can go wrong, IE deer jumps in front of your car!

I'd get like a Slick-Stik or some old Federal 2-lamp deck light boxes (predecessor to the SML-2). It'd make it more "era-friendly"


Great looking ride though...that's still my favorite squad car.

Except the LEDs, I love it. Get some AS2s or something to be more era correct...

Yes they are a pain in the ass, that rear deck is like a nightmare rug...didnt feel like drilling in it...i just used velcro onthe speaker covers... and being the dashboard is in mint condition, i decided not to put anything on it....car is well lit as it is...

Well I bought it as a collectible...with 29K original miles..car basically sits in the garage....i put 4k miles on it in 8 years...mostly to keep the battery and fluids circulating... the radar was just something different to install on such a clean car...again,,mostly a collectors car..probably the value of this thing is 4x what i paid for it...you cant find them in this shape!

Started out with strobes....grille, deck etc.....dual dashmisers in the back , 3x7's in grille....man do they draw current...anyways..its much more brighter now even though its not era correct...but its all good...because the car is so clean its seems like the LED's make the car look so nice when lit up...

From a collector stand point it is, but i use my SS's for responding and patrol when my CV is in the shop.

What are the emblems on the fender? Not original. I agree with period correct lighting for such a unique car, try to find what lights the car had in service and do a correct restoring.

Those are 1960's Impala ss style emblems.....the thing is the car was never in service, all it was used for was an office paper pusher car...thats why the miles are so low...

They are from the 64 impala ss', I have a set of similar fuel injected emblems on my 96 Impala SS

Very nice install... :thumbsup: Like others have stated, the placement of the Talons on the rear deck could be better, but its still a great liikon car regardless...

I would volunteer to push paper anytime to drive such a car...


Nothing to add that hasn't been already said. Gorgeous ride (I'm a 9C1 fan, had one of the last 96 as company car for awhile). Yet, the perfectionist in me can't help but frown at seeing non era-correct lights. :eek: (

This is really clean looking for an older car. Not an overkill, really nicely done & maintained.
