For Sale: 2005 Chevrolet SSR in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 2005 Chevrolet SSR is a one-owner low-mileage stunner that has everything you want, like a loaded interior, the more powerful V8, and the rarely-seen six-speed. And while this hardtop convertible was already a specialty-built machine from Chevy, there has been a big investment in this one inside and out to make it a truly singular creation with unique details you won't find elsewhere.


Slingshot Yellow was one of the boldest ways to hit the streets, and so it only seems fitting for this custom SSR like this. The exterior has been modified for a full custom style. It starts up front with a lightweight fiberglass cowl hood that announces the LS2 power underneath. There are also polished grille inserts to match the slats, a rear spoiler on the hard tonneau, larger dual exhaust tips, and a custom trailer hitch. The SSR was inspired by the hot-rodded Advance Design pickups, and so this has an elegant full custom pinstriping package to further the custom cruiser connection. We particularly like the body kit. While some SSR's had optional running boards, this sleek ground effects package connects the retro-cook rounded fenders with a very fluid rocker design. And the added ground-hugging style to the front and rear is positively sporty. As a one-owner car, all these added investments show a devotion to this modern classic. That's why it has such a low odometer (averaging about 2,300 miles annually) and any time on the road was done with care. That's why the paint retains a terrific gloss, the panels line up so nicely, and the polished alloys shine brightly. This well-kept style goes right down to the smooth operation of the SSR's hardtop that compactly folds away and disappears with barely a trace for a terrific roadster pickup look.


The interior continues the custom upgraded style. For example, the yellow inserts in the leather seats and doors are a pure custom piece, and they go so well with the waterfall of yellow running from the back and onto the center console. It makes for a more comprehensive connection with the exterior color, and that always looks impressive when the top is down. There's also more custom pinstriping and plenty of added polish to really make the interior a focal point even when the exterior is so custom. Part of being seen in this SSR also means a love for hitting the road. That's because this is loaded with the best comfort features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual front airbags, side airbags, a tilt steering column, cruise control, power seats, heated seats, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The stereo keeps the Bose speakers, but now you have an upgraded infotainment touchscreen that runs the radio, Bluetooth, and backup camera. The huge bed/trunk is needed because it's how you can haul home all the extras this comes with, like many of the stock components and fun accessories.


While all SSRs are V8-powered, not all were created equal. During the limited run, a later model like this received the 6.0-liter LS2 V8. This fuel-injected powerplant was shared with the Corvette, and it represented more than a 30% upgrade in power over the previous year. In fact, the rare six-speed manual versions like this one were a little more powerful than the automatics. So, you get extra muscle and full control over it, too! The engine bay loves to showcase this desirable powerhouse with plenty of polished pieces, a mirrored inner hood, and a bold yellow intake that's also a tribute to Dale Earnhardt. And it's not just pure flair as you'll also spot some substance like upgraded air intake. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you will not only spot a clean presentation, but also a few other added details that make this feel like a custom from every angle. Of course with power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and sporty Pirelli P-Zero tires, we know you'll love showing off the full package on trips near and far.


The sale comes complete with the original window sticker and owner's manual. This is the desirable LS2 six-speed SSR that has been transformed into a truly one-of-a-kind custom. So don't let this one-owner unique machine slip away. Call today!!!
