“The Impala was restyled on the existing GM B platform for 1961. The new body styling was more trim and boxy than the 1958-60 models. Sport Coupe models featured a “bubbleback” roofline style for ’61, and a unique model, the 2-door pillared sedan, was available for 1961 only. It was rarely ordered and a scarce collectible today. In 1961, the Impala SS (Super Sport) was introduced to the market. The SS badge was to become Chevrolet’s signature of performance on many models, though it has often been an appearance package only. The Impala’s SS package in 1961 was truly a performance package, beginning with the high-performance 348-cubic-inch V8 engines available with 305 brake horsepower, 340 brake horsepower, and 350 brake horsepower.”
