A bold retro presentation, unique features, and V8 power come together in one of the best prices around – that's exactly why you can't stop looking at this 2004 Chevrolet SSR.
This 2004 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 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 an aggressive stance. In fact, it's hard not to recognize all the unique lines of this retro machine thanks to the slippery factory Ricochet Silver Metallic paint. The deep luster it retains is just another reminder of the good care this SSR has received over the years.
With just the touch of a button, the folding hardtop disappears behind the seats. This reveals the black leather interior that adds sophistication to the exterior silver image. In fact, the black and silver really coordinate nicely into a total uniform package. For example, the dual bucket seats have a waterfall of silver in-between to give this the same appeal as a first-generation Corvette. 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 fine working order. It includes key-less entry, power locks, power seats, power mirrors, and a Bose AM/FM/CD stereo system that fills the little cockpit with sound at any speed. While the covered and locking bed is large enough to carry really big stuff, it's beautifully finished with carpet. In fact, it's 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 you'll like the most is the power windows. Combined with the power top, it means you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from coupe-like luxury to a wind-in-you-hair experience. Since this has air conditioning and heated seats, you can take the top down any time of year and remain comfortable.
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 are plenty of performance upgrades available for those who want to take it to the extreme, but with 300 hp already on tap, it would be a bit of a shame altering a numbers-matching motor that's been so carefully maintained all its life. Turn the key and it starts instantly; the idle is smooth; and the dual exhaust hums around town like a Corvette with a bed. In fact, with four-wheel disc brakes, grippy Continental Extreme Contact tires, and a suspension built more for handling than hauling, this retro pickup is really a sports car in disguise. But just like the Corvette, this SSR is also great for the grand tour. The four-speed automatic transmission has highway-friendly overdrive, and you even have cruise control.
Complete with the original window sticker and owner's manual, you're looking at an instant classic. And since this is one offered at one of best prices around, you need to hurry and grab this deal. Call now!
