Classic Car Overview

The Chevrolet SSR was a fascinating experiment the likes of which we may never see again. It handles like a Camaro, capable of hauling real stuff like a pickup, and has a folding hardtop like a European roadster. And while these already had tantalizing low production numbers, this one has some of the most desirable features of them all the larger V8 and a six-speed manual transmission! This 2005 Chevrolet SSR is one of those nicely preserved examples that has obviously led a very good life in the hands of those who appreciate a unique machine. Now that over a dozen years have passed since production concluded, we can really begin to appreciate how the SSR blended the iconic Advance Design pickups of the 40s and 50s with modern fender flairs and aggressive stance. In fact, its hard not to recognize all the unique lines of this retro machine thanks to the bold factory Slingshot Yellow. Its deep luster is just another reminder of the good care this SSR has received over the years. And dark details like the full-length black pinstripe and gunmetal gray wheels really stand out against the vibrant paint. With just the touch of a button, the folding hardtop disappears behind the seats. This reveals the black leather interior, and lets face it, theres arguably no better combination for a bold total package than black and yellow. And more than just look sporty, this has all the right performance-oriented features for both the new and vintage lovers. For example, the dual bucket seats with a waterfall of color in-between reminds us instantly of the first-generation Corvette, and the grippy steering wheel has all the right modern fingertip controls. All of this look terrific today because this SSR has been treated with respect since day one. This also means that the long list of features is still in perfect working order. It includes keyless entry, power locks, power seats, and cruise control. Plus, the stereo has been upgraded to a Pioneer AM/FM/CD unit with a touchscreen. While the covered and locking bed is large enough to carry really big stuff, its beautifully finished with carpet and wood. In fact, its really just an extremely spacious trunk. Plus, a modern classic means modern safety features like dual front airbags, side airbags, and ABS. But the feature we think youll like the most is the power windows. Combined with the power top, it means you never have to leave the drivers seat to go from coupe-like luxury to a wind-in-you-hair experience. And since this has cold-blowing factory air conditioning, you can take the top down all year long without breaking a sweat. 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! As you look at the undercarriage photos, you will not only spot a clean presentation, but also all the right components for a great handling machine (rack & pinion power steering, independent front suspension, wide Goodyear rubber, sway bars, modern bracing, ventilated four-wheel disc brakes, etc.) So, this is the kind of future classic youll enjoy driving near or far. Complete with owners manual, this is the most collectible late-model Chevy around. Its fast, fun, and unique. Now is your time to get this future classic while its still obtainable. Call today!!!
