When a unique V8-powered machine was finished in a factory all-black package, you know it has the right makings for an instant classic. So when this 2005 Chevrolet SSR is also a loaded, low-mileage machine, it delivers an irresistible total package.
The SSR practically defines retro-cool. After all, the Advance Design series trucks on which this design was based is one of the most sought-after for customization today. And even the best of those bespoke classics can't get the sleekness you see here. After all, the only thing more rounded than the SSR's fenders is the hardtop roof. It's a factory black machine, and since items like the tonneau over the bed were even part of the design, the whole vehicle has a sleek and uniform look. And with less than 40k miles on the odometer, this one has led a charmed life where it was only taken out for special occasions (a car cover even comes with the sale.) In fact, it was ordered with some stand out features, like running boards and polished alloys. Plus, the addition of the gold pinstripe running down the sides and over the wheel wells shows someone had a careful eye for added style.
The SSR's big calling card is the cool action of the power folding hardtop that compactly tucks within itself and then disappears into its own covered storage without a trace of the roofline. So with the touch of a button, you get to choose between a sleek coupe-like appearance, or you can have a roadster pickup. And the black interior means this one continues its full midnight appearance even when you're open to the world. Not only is the color-combo tempting, but also is the long list of luxury features. It starts with two high-back leather bucket seats that power adjust to give you and your passenger the ideal comfort position. And with the optional seat heaters and cold-blowing factory air conditioning, you can easily get comfortable during open-top motoring almost any time of year. You've also got power windows, power locks, power mirrors, power steering, cruise control, keyless entry, and an AM/FM stereo with CD changer and premium Bose audio. There's plenty of modern safety, too, with front airbags, 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 carpets and wood. In fact, it's really just an extremely spacious trunk, and this one even has locking side storage.
This 2005 model represents a pivotal year in SSR's short run. The motor was upgraded to the fuel-injected 6.0-liter LS2 unit. This gave the SSR a boost to 390 horsepower, and this special motor looks quite stock in the tidy engine bay. So it has the right look for a collectable. The four-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit made to handle this V8's power, and at the same time, it provides silky smooth shifts all the way into overdrive. So while this was built to look like a truck, this also was made to drive like a muscle machine. That's why you have tubular control arms on the rear suspension, rear sway bar, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
This all-black SSR is a modern classic that has all the best features for you to enjoy today, and also has the uniqueness to keep it desirable down the road. Call today!!!
