Chevrolet displayed a stunning show car on the 1957 auto show circuit based on the Corvette. Chevrolet dubbed the new car the "Super Sport." Though it would be a few years before this fabled name plate would grace a production car, by the time the classic muscle car era began in earnest, the name "Super Sport" would come to define the era. The Super Sport badge graced some of the fastest, most powerful American cars ever built, beasts like the LS6-powered Chevelle 454SS. With Robert Genat's definitive text and the stunning photography of acclaimed photo ace David Newhardt, Super Sport: 50 Years of Chevy Muscle" presents these spectacular machines as they've never been seen before.
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.
