Part roadster...part pickup...part factory retromod...and all the way awesome. That's what makes this 2004 Chevrolet SSR such a great modern classic. And so this low mileage and loaded specialty machine is a terrific find.
This 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. In fact, the odometer is believed to reflect the vehicle's full actual mileage, and that would mean averaging less than 750 miles annually. That tells you its life this far has been more about sunny Sunday drives than the daily commute. That's why the factory Slingshot Yellow continues to look so distinctive. And the clean body lines show how we can appreciate how the SSR blended the iconic Advance Design pickups of the 40s and 50s with modern fender flares and an aggressive stance. While the glossy paint is bold, don't forget to check out the other parts of this color package. The black pinstripe and tinted windows look quite stylish against the yellow. Plus, the hints of silver highlight some of the best pieces, like the unique grille that bisects the headlights, the retro-cool Chevrolet lettering up front, and the optional running boards. And when the roof is down, even roll hoops coordinate in silver. Plus, it makes the alloy wheels stand out, and so you really take note of the larger and wider rear ones that gave this a hot rod style stance right from the factory.
With just the touch of a button, the folding hardtop disappears behind the seats. This reveals the black leather interior, which makes the added exterior pinstripe looks even more thoughtful. Low mileage means little seat time and so the leather seats continue to look excellent and feel supple. It's part of a terrific driver's package that includes recessed gauges, a tilt column, and the grippy steering wheel has all the right modern fingertip controls. And this one also has all the best loaded features for a luxury cruiser. It includes power windows, power locks, keyless entry, power mirrors, cup holders, a full center console, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bose speakers. And the combination of cold-blowing air conditioning and heated seats mean you and your passenger know how to stay comfortable even when the top is down. This was a car that let the stylists have their fun, and the reward is in the details, including a waterfall of color between the seats that reminds us of the first-generation Corvette. And because the truck bed is really just a spacious trunk, they detailed it with full carpeting and bright wood slats. This one was even personally upgraded with coco-style mats with a cool black and yellow color theme.
The key to the SSR's performance is a 5.3-liter V8. It's a 300-horsepower factory specialty LS-based aluminum block motor that has an ideal home in this factory retro-mod cruiser. In fact, the guys who turn their 1950s Advance Design trucks into restomods look for this powerhouse. The reason why this motor stays in demand is that it's built to be the modern motor that fires up easily, idles smoothly, and knows how to pull with the kind of power and torque to be a ton of fun. The four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is ideal for comfort in town or on the highway. Chevrolet also called the suspension Boulevard Ride in the way it's made for cruising. Plus, with four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, and Michelin tires, it makes for an appealing car that will happily have you adding to the low odometer.
