For Sale: 2004 Chevrolet SSR in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

A bold retro presentation, unique features, and V8 power come together on what is basically a custom build with factory-level precision. It's all why this 2004 Chevrolet SSR was such an instant collectible on day one. And now you can pick up a low mileage example in arguably the smoothest color theme around offered for quite an attractive price.


The Ricochet Silver Metallic paint has a nice gloss and shine. While that is always great to see on a quality car, on an SSR, it's even better. After all, the bright finish just seems to add emphasis to the curves, and the unique style is at the heart of the SSRs appeal. The designers took the iconic Advance Design pickups of the 1940s and 50s with modern fender flares and an aggressive stance. And since this has averaged under 2,600 miles annually, there's a clean look to the whole vehicle that lets you appreciate the amount of effort it took to build a Chevy with this much classic style. So while this vehicle merges the past and present, it all lives in harmony. For example, the grille is retro truck inspired, but the alloys are pure modern with even a staggered 19/20-inch front/rear setup for a sports car like stance. They both coordinate nicely as the matte finish is just unique enough against the silver to look distinctive and stylish.


With just the touch of a button, the folding hardtop disappears behind the seats. And the flush-fitting tonneau over the roof's well means the top leaves no trace like a roadster. This reveals the black leather interior that adds sophistication to the exterior silver image. In fact, the black and silver really coordinate nicely into a total uniform package. For example, the dual bucket seats have a waterfall of silver in-between to give this the same appeal as a first-generation Corvette. It's not just the style that makes the SSR so desirable; it's also the long list of features. This includes power windows, keyless entry, power locks, power seats, power mirrors, a tilt column, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bose speakers. While the covered and locking bed is large enough to carry really big stuff, it's beautifully finished with carpet. So it feels like an extremely spacious trunk. Plus, a modern classic means modern safety features like dual front airbags, side airbags, and ABS. Best of all , this has both air conditioning and heated seats, you can take the top-down any time of year and remain comfortable.


The key to the SSR's performance is a 5.3-liter V8. This motor is related to GM's truck line, but it also has some lightweight performance characteristics, which seems like the perfect blend for this pickup/roadster. There are plenty of performance upgrades available for those who want to take it to the extreme, but with 300 hp already on tap, it would be a bit of a shame altering such a stock setup. Turn the key and it starts instantly; the idle is smooth; and the dual exhaust hums around town like a Corvette with a bed. In fact, with four-wheel disc brakes, grippy Pirelli tires, and a suspension built more for handling than hauling, this retro pickup is really a sports car in disguise. But just like the Corvette, this SSR is also great for the grand tour. The four-speed automatic transmission has highway-friendly overdrive, and you also have cruise control.


Complete with the owner's manual, you're looking at an instant classic. And since this is one offered at one of the best prices around for something so well preserved, you need to hurry and grab this deal. Call today!!!
