2 Things Gearheads Forgot About The 1969 Chevrolet Impala SS  

While the 1969 Chevrolet Impala SS is widely celebrated among gearheads, there are a couple of lesser-known details that often get overlooked.

Firstly, the 1969 Impala SS was the last year of the SS package for the full-size Impala line until its reintroduction in the 1990s.

This makes the '69 Impala SS a significant model for collectors and enthusiasts.  

Secondly, despite its powerful reputation, the 1969 Impala SS was available with a range of engine options,  

including smaller V8 engines like the 327 and 350 cubic inch variants.  

While overshadowed by the larger engines,  

these options provided a more accessible entry point for buyers looking for the SS experience without the extreme power of the big-block engines.
