AWESOME MODERN STREET ROD WITH ONLY 6700 MILES!! 1 OF 1341 RICOCHET SILVER SSR’S PRODUCED IN 2004 IN THE U.S!
FUTURE COLLECTIBLE THAT YOU CAN DRIVE AND ENJOY!!
If you are like me you are looking at this auction because you are a true Car Enthusiast and it is hard to ignore the appeal of these Chevy SSR’s. I find that the typical owner of an SSR is someone who has or has had several classic and muscle cars in their lifetime and would like a modern driving Hot Rod that still catches all the eyes on the roads at cruise-ins and is a blast to drive. This is the first SSR I have owned and it will not be the last! I bought this particular car from the original owner here in Gainesville, GA. He fit the description of an SSR owner exactly. Inside his warehouse was a ’69 Chevelle SS, a ’69 El Camino, and a ’68 GTO Convertible. The SSR was his sunny day cruiser from time to time but as you can see, with only 6700 miles on it, he just never used it that often and decided it was time to let it go. It was a Beautiful Sunny Atlanta day when I bought it and I drove it home with the top down and got honks and thumbs up the whole way home. That night I took one of my daughters friends to the high school Football game in it and he was smiling ear to ear….proof that it appeals to all ages!!! I have really grown to enjoy this Hard Top Convertible Modern Street Rod of a truck and I know the next owner will get years of fun out of it. Best of all, this is sure to be one of the future Collectibles of its time and will hold its value and most likely appreciate for years to come. I have included a number of pictures to show you the great design and condition of this SSR and a couple of short videos follow the pictures so you can get a walk around tour and hear it run. Sit back and enjoy….and most importantly picture yourself in this SSR…believe me you will love it!
As you will see in the pictures that follow the body on this Ricochet Silver is close to flawless. The truck has never been in any type of accident and the paint and body is basically like new. This particular one has the optional integrated running boards that really enhance the look of the truck. If I had to pick it apart I would mention an extremely tiny blem on the bottom edge of the tailgate that has just a couple of extremely small chips in the paint. You probably would not notice this on inspection and I do not think this will show in the pictures. Wheels and Tires are basically new with just 6700 miles on them and no curb rash. The hardtop convertible feature on this truck is really amazing. With just the push of a button and a matter of seconds the Hardtop retracts in to a small compartment behind the seats and you are now basically driving an open air roadster….HOW COOL!! Lets not forget this SSR is also a truck. Ok, lets be truthful for a second. The truck cargo compartment has the upgraded woodtrim and is more like a very oversized trunk space. It will haul plenty of cargo but this is a modern street rod and not a truck you make to Home Depot for lumber and mulch. As you will see the truck is in the near perfect condition you would expect from one with just 6700 miles on it.
While the SSR definitely has some of the flare of the 50’s styles Street Rod Pick up trucks, if I had to vote I would say drop the top on this SSR at every chance you get. So lets drop the top and take a look inside. You can also check out how quick and smooth the top operates in one of the videos below. The Ebony leather interior is in fantastic condition and is extremely comfortable for driver and passenger. Interior is nicely equipped with safety and comfort features. For safety you have side impact airbags in addition to the drivers and passengers front airbags. Power heated seats for driver and passenger, memory power seats, upgraded Bose Premium sound with in-dash 6 cd player, electrochromatic rearview mirror with homelink, power everything, ice cold a/c, cruise control, steering wheel radio controls, and so much more!! The interior is very neatly laid out and there are several convenient cup holders as well. Custom SSR floor mats finish off the look. This SSR truly has the new car smell you would expect from a 6700 mile vehicle that has never been smoked in.
Not only is this SSR a real eye catching machine but it is also a blast to drive. The Vortec 5300 V8 pushes out 300 horsepower and the 4 speed Over-drive Automatic transmission shifts crisply. 3:73 Rear axle ratio, torsen limited slip differential, independent front suspension, 5 link rear suspension, 16:1 ratio power steering, Front and rear stabilizer bars, tuned shocks, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, and some meaty Goodyear tires on front and rear makes for some great times on the local roads or highways. Great muscle car tone from the stock dual exhaust. ( you can hear this in one of the videos below). This SSR Machine is ready to hit the streets. I also have all of the original manuals and the original window sticker which is nice to have for the future.
Below are a couple of amateur videos I did. The first one is a walk around tour and the second one will allow you to see the top operate and hear this baby run!
DRIVE THE DREAM!!
