1961 Chevrolet Impala
The third generation of the Chevrolet Impala was introduced in 1961 and restyled on the GM B platform for the first time. The rare Super Sport (SS) option made their public debut in '61, as did power brakes.
A bargain at just $53.80, the SS "kit" was offered on any Impala. It included Super Sport trim inside and out, chassis reinforcements, stronger springs and shocks, power brakes with sintered metallic linings, spinner-type wheel covers, and one of Chevy's earliest uses of narrow-band whitewall tires.
