If you missed your chance at the 2005 Chevrolet SSR
pickup/convertible the first time around, here's one last
opportunity at something special. This example has spent the last
seven years as part of a small collection. That means low mileage
and a high level of respect. And everything from the shine of the
red paint to the terrific paperwork file proves you've found the
right one for your own collection.
It's not hard to see why this SSR would end up a prized possession.
After all, it was basically like Chevy built you a custom car. So
you can find a few of the right people who have treated them
correctly. So while you have an aggressive color name like Redline
Red, the real story here is how the quality high-gloss shine shows
off how all those awesome curves still look so straight and clean.
In fact, it's the design that will keep this one so treasured. The
designers got to create the modern Chevy Advance Design pickup and
updated it with modern streamlined curves. It's the kind of
neo-classic look that delivers six-figure hand-built hot rods, and
so we don't even know if GM ever made a profit building these
expensive lines. And we love the details on this one, like the
color-matched running boards, deeply tinted windows, an accessory
trailer hitch, and a bra to protect the front end. Plus the chrome
is saved for performance pieces like the polished dual exhaust tips
and aggressive factory alloys staggered at 19/20 inches front/rear.
It's this highly-optioned and well-respected style that makes it
look like it hasn't even averaged the already low 1,500 miles
Just like the best muscle cars, you've got a deep black interior
complementing the red exterior. And of course, it's all just as
nice as the exterior because low mileage also means less seat time.
But while the appearance is quite retro, the features are quite
modern. There are sculpted leather bucket seats, a color-matched
center console, and every luxury GM could dream up. Features
include power seats, power windows, power locks, power mirrors,
keyless entry, and a thundering Bose AM/FM/CD stereo system that
fills the cockpit with sound at any speed. Touch a button, and the
trick folding hardtop disappears behind the seats - making this the
coolest open-air truck since the Model A roadster pickup of the
'30s. Plus, with ice-cold air conditioning and heated seats, you
can stay bags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. While the
covered and locking bed is large enough to carry really big stuff,
it's beautifully finished with carpeting and wood. In fact, it's
really just an extremely spacious trunk that holds everything and
is fun to show off.
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, with four-wheel disc brakes, grippy Goodyear Eagle
RS-A 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. So while the mileage is
exceptionally low, we know you won't be able to resist adding more
to the odometer.
The sale comes complete with the original window sticker, sales
literature, and the owner's manual packet. Respect, rarity, power,
and prestige all come together to create a car/truck where the
enthusiast desires continually grow. So don't miss an opportunity
at a cherry red version of a peach SSR. Call today!!!
