SSR 2005

Title Status --
Exterior Color Smokin Asphalt Black
Interior Color Black


The blackout style, powerful LS2 V8, and a loaded interior all make this 2005 Chevrolet SSR an awesome ride. And the folding hardtop reminds you that this is both the coolest coupe and convertible you can get your hands on.

Smokin Asphalt Black paint is an awesome name for a great color. After all, this is a fuel-injected V8 car that looks like a custom build. So an aggressive black with an aggressive name is absolutely fitting. These cars defined retro-cool with a look that was inspired by the rounded fender Advance Design pickups of the '40s and '50s. This even has running boards for a true classic/cool look. But the style is streamlined and taken into the modern era. This attention to aerodynamic detail is seen in the way the hardtop disappears without almost any trace, and the bed has a flush-fitting locking tonneau both stylish and secure. Overall, the SSR is the kind of daring design that was so expensive to make that GM made it a specialty factory. In fact, Chevrolet made more Corvettes in 2005 alone than SSRs in total over its whole four-year run. That's why these will remain collectibles.

The black leather interior meant this has the ultra-desirable all-black package direct from Chevy. These were expensive when new, and so this may look as mean as midnight, but it's quite the coddling luxury package. You have dual leather bucket seats that individually adjust to the ideal position (the driver even has memory a function.) Plus, there's power windows, power locks, power mirrors, cruise control, and keyless entry/alarm, front airbags, side airbags, power steering, and air conditioning to keep you feeling cool even when the top is down at noon. And the radio has been upgraded to a Pioneer touchscreen infotainment system that includes DVD, navigation, and Bluetooth.

This 2005 model represents a pivotal year in SSR's short run. The V8 was upgraded to the 6.0-liter LS2 unit. This fuel-injected powerhouse offered a healthy boost in power to 390 hp, and this is the numbers-matching unit. The four-speed automatic transmission was built to handle this motor, so it's the ideal balance of quick kick-downs into power and easy shifts into overdrive cruising. They even built these like a sports car with tubular control arms on the rear suspension, sway bars front & rear, and four-wheel power disc brakes w/ABS.

This is the full midnight package for a desirable year SSR. So you know a modern classic like this won't stay here long at this affordable price. Call today!!!
