This 2004 Chevrolet SSR became a classic on day one because no other vehicle took vintage appeal, modern sleekness, and wrapped it in a package that included a hardtop convertible with a top operation that provides a cool show all on its own. So when you can get a fuel-injected V8 machine that's loaded and came with a full factory blackout, it all makes for an irresistible modern classic.
The curves of the SSR are instantly recognizable. Chevrolet's Advance Design pickup have grown into an icon of the post-war American boom, and it has even shifted into a favorite for building the best street machines. So Chevrolet celebrated that linage with the SSR. It's a modern interpretation where the flowing fenders were given some added sleekness. Even the classic grille design looks like it was given 200 MPH wind-swept makeover. This retains a touch of the classic truck style with the old-school Chevrolet lettering up front and full step rails between the fenders. But the staggered alloys, large dual exhaust tips, and form-fitting tonneau cover are all about a modern sleek and speedy machine.
Black paint and tinted windows give this has a mean-as-midnight attitude on the outside. With the flip of a few switches, the glass powers down and the roof tucks away without a trace. You're now open to the world with an outstanding roadster look, and we particularly like this one, because it also never loses that blackout style. It's a full black interior that has glossy black inserts for the right accenting. There's even a hint of silver to set the full package off nicely. So the appearance is just like your favorite muscle cars today. More than just the right classic vibes, you'll love this because it's a fully loaded modern machine. That means dual bucket seats that are finished in leather and independently power adjust to the ideal position. You also have power locks, power mirrors, cruise control, keyless entry, and an AM/FM/CD stereo system with premium Bose speakers. Plus, heated seats and the cold-blowing air-conditioning means you can enjoy top-down motoring no matter if it's a crisp fall evening or noon in the summer. There's plenty of modern safety, too, with everything from front and side airbags to anti-lock brakes. While the covered bed is large enough to carry really big stuff, it's really just an extremely spacious trunk ready for everyone's golf clubs.
The key to the SSR's performance is a 5.3-liter V8. This motor is related the GM's truck line, but it also has some lightweight performance characteristics, which seems like the perfect blend for this pickup/roadster. There has been an upgrade to a K&N air intake, but otherwise, this fuel-injected V8 remains largely stock and clean. So it fires up nicely, drives well, and the four-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly all the way into overdrive. Power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, a car-like suspension, and modern performance tires make this a great all-around driver.
Complete with the original window sticker, this is a great instant-classic. So if you want power, luxury, and rarity, call today!
