Alright, I really new to the whole b-body thing, infact I don't even own one...yet.

I'm sorry if this has been asked before...but with years came with the LT1 engine?

I've seen some of the eariler years come with 5.0, but I'd rather have an LT1 to work off of.

All 1994 to 1996 Impala SS cars, (WX3 trim LT1 engine) (watch out for misrepresented clones)

A lot of 1994 to 1996 Caprice cars came with the LT1 also.

A lot of 1994 to 1996 Caprice cop cars too.

Some Fleetwoods came with the LT1

Wagons did too.

Look for LT1 on the trunk lid lable, (SPID lable) and look for "P" in the VIN, example, 1G1BL52POSRxxxxx (the 8th digit would be P for the LT1 engine)

Just wanted to point out the typo. The 350cid is a 5.7L [img]graemlins/3.gif[/img]

9C6 is the taxi option. 4.3 V6 was available from 85-90 (can't find any info that it was available in the 91-93 cars, but I think it might have been... someone else will know). I had a base model 88 with the 4.3 FI motor that I used to drive 150 miles a day round trip in. Bought it for 700, and drove it for three years. Good car...

I have seen some GM publications that listed the V6 as an option... can't remember the details, tho. I have a feeling that it was one of the pre-production published options that never happened in the final run.

...Kind of like the 1996 Chevrolet colorchart I have that lists Granite Metallic as a color for the Impala SS instead of DGGM. GM changed back to DGGM just before the production run for 96 started.

I hope this all answers your question, "What years had LT1's?".

Granite Metallic was what they used for some of the Export Caprice SS and had thoughts of for the Impala SS. Instead it was offered on the Caprice. That's what mine was listed on the door sticker. The paint code calls it Marblehead Mettalic.
If you have the color chart listing the Granite for the SS I would really like to have a copy of that. Anyway you could forward me a copy? Thanks!

Actually Karl, you had some errors in your post. All 94-96 Fleetwoods had the LT1 and it was only about a 20% run of the non-WX3 Caprice cars that got the LT1, not a lot of them, plus all Roadmasters (94-96 of course).
