The blackout style, powerful LS2 V8, and a loaded interior all make
this 2005 Chevrolet SSR an awesome ride. And the folding hardtop
reminds you that this is both the coolest coupe and convertible you
can get your hands on.
Smokin Asphalt Black paint is an awesome name for a great color.
After all, this is a fuel-injected V8 car that looks like a custom
build. So an aggressive black with an aggressive name is absolutely
fitting. These cars defined retro-cool with a look that was
inspired by the rounded fender Advance Design pickups of the '40s
and '50s. This even has running boards for a true classic/cool
look. But the style is streamlined and taken into the modern era.
This attention to aerodynamic detail is seen in the way the hardtop
disappears without almost any trace, and the bed has a
flush-fitting locking tonneau both stylish and secure. Overall, the
SSR is the kind of daring design that was so expensive to make that
GM made it a specialty factory. In fact, Chevrolet made more
Corvettes in 2005 alone than SSRs in total over its whole four-year
run. That's why these will remain collectibles.
The black leather interior meant this has the ultra-desirable
all-black package direct from Chevy. These were expensive when new,
and so this may look as mean as midnight, but it's quite the
coddling luxury package. You have dual leather bucket seats that
individually adjust to the ideal position (the driver even has
memory a function.) Plus, there's power windows, power locks, power
mirrors, cruise control, and keyless entry/alarm, front airbags,
side airbags, power steering, and air conditioning to keep you
feeling cool even when the top is down at noon. And the radio has
been upgraded to a Pioneer touchscreen infotainment system that
includes DVD, navigation, and Bluetooth.
This 2005 model represents a pivotal year in SSR's short run. The
V8 was upgraded to the 6.0-liter LS2 unit. This fuel-injected
powerhouse offered a healthy boost in power to 390 hp, and this is
the numbers-matching unit. The four-speed automatic transmission
was built to handle this motor, so it's the ideal balance of quick
kick-downs into power and easy shifts into overdrive cruising. They
even built these like a sports car with tubular control arms on the
rear suspension, sway bars front & rear, and four-wheel power disc
This is the full midnight package for a desirable year SSR. So you
know a modern classic like this won't stay here long at this
affordable price. Call today!!!
