On the 1957 car show circuit, Chevrolet revealed a show car based on the Corvette and dubbed "Super Sport". The performance car world took one look - and never looked back! With a combination of styling and performance upgrades, the SS package could turn a mundane 6-cylinder Malibu into a fire-breathing Chevelle SS396. This book traces the long line of legendary SS models from Chevy's Super Sport version of the popular Impala at the dawn of the muscle car era to today's classic SS performance cars. The Chevelle, Camaro, El Camino, Malibu, Monte Carlo...it offers a close-up, detailed, full-color look at these and all other beloved muscle cars; and serves as a fittingly elegant celebration of the cars that redefined "High Performance" and defined an era, crammed full of superb photographs and technical detail.
About the Author
Robert Genat is a recognised authority om Muscle Cars. Amd has written numerous books on them
Car Collector Magazine", December 2007 "A great deal of attention is paid the Camaro SS, which played a significant role in the Chevy Pony Car's immediate popularity and showroom sales battle with the Mustang. In fact, only the Impala SS and Chevelle SS have more pages dedicated to them than the Camaro. In six chapters the author manages to get as much history and detail, touching on the finer points of engines, options, and features, as you can pack into 128 pages, plus an impressive 122 images. For Chevy fans, if you don't already have the hard cover edition, you can pick this new soft cover copy up for a song."
