This 2004 Chevrolet SSR Pickup Truck is a nicely preserved, low-mileage future collectible that is ready for some serious summer cruising! Originally touted in Chevrolets marketing materials as Part Pickup. Part Roadster. Pure Joyride., the SSR was really part concept car and part production vehicle. Taking design influences from Chevrolets Advance Design era pickups from 1947-1955, Chevrolet debuted the Super Sport Roadster in January 2000 at the Detroit Auto Show. Shortly thereafter GMs management announced that the concept would be put into production, with the SSR pickup debuting New Years Eve 2002 as a 2003 model. Despite borrowing its style from Chevrolets early workhorse trucks, the SSR was less utilitarian than the early Chevy pickups and instead had more of a performance oriented slant. In fact, the 2003 SSR was selected as the Pace Car for the 87th running of the Indianapolis 500 race. Although the SSR debuted to much fanfare, the public just wasnt ready for a Chevy throwback and Chevrolet stopped production in March of 2006. In total, less than an estimated 25,000 SSRs were produced in the four year production run, making this nostalgic pickup a pretty rare automobile, especially in todays standards. Under the hood on this SSR Pickup is a Vortec 5300 5.3 Liter V8 fuel injected engine that was said to have pushed out 300 horsepower from the factory. The Vortec 5.3L is hooked up to a 4L60E Automatic Transmission that makes this future collectible easy for anybody to drive. Exhaust exits this Chevys fuel injected V8 via dual tailpipes with chrome tips. Being that this SSR is a late model collectible, it comes loaded with creature comforts! Rack and pinion power steering makes turning this 04 SSR into tight spaces a total breeze. With 4 wheel power disc brakes with vented rotors and ABS, bringing this Chevrolet SSR to a complete stop is simple. Youll be sure you keep the rubber to pavement on this 300hp pickup since it is outfitted with independent front suspension and a 5-link rear setup capped off with a Zexen-Torsen limited slip rear differential and electronic traction control.

Riding on 255/45R19 radials in the front with 295/40ZR20s in the rear, this 04 SSR has a mean look and fantastic ride. The exterior has been finished in Slingshot Yellow, just how this pickup came back in 2004. This SSRs interior is gorgeous and loaded with options!
