RARE, RICOCHET SILVER, 2005 CHEVROLET SSR MODERN HOT ROD!!! 1 OF 1202 PRODUCED IN THIS COLOR IN 2005…LOADED WITH OPTIONS…VERY LOW MILEAGE AND NEAR FLAWLESS CONDITION!!!
FUTURE COLLECTIBLE THAT YOU CAN DRIVE AND ENJOY!!!
COOL WITH THE TOP UP OR DOWN!!
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 currently owns, or has previously owned several classic, muscle, or exotic cars in their lifetime and would like a modern driving Hot Rod that still catches all the eyes on the road, shows or cruise-ins and is a blast to drive. In addition to the 100’s of great classic and muscle cars we have owned, we have also now owned about 15 SSR’s. The first one we bought was a 2004 but we quickly learned that the 2005-2006 models were the real gems with the upgraded LS2 motor. The neck-snapping increase in Horsepower from the Gen IV 6.0L LS2 V-8 turns the cool looking Roadster Truck in to a serious road machine! I will go out on a limb and say that in my opinion the 2005 SSR is basically a Corvette on steroids. There is no doubt that the 2005 is just plain and simple much more fun to drive!! 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.
This Ricochet Silver ’05 SSR is in near flawless condition and comes loaded with options including the 1SB Preferred Equipment Group,Aux Gauge Package, Carpeted Trunk, Trunk light, Power Memory seats, heated seats, Bose Premium sound with 6 disc in dash changer, Homelink Garage opener, Chrome wheels and more! We recently purchased this SSR from a woman who’s husband had passed away recently. It was his pride and joy and she was very sad to see it leave. He was the second owner and bought it in 2007. It has just under 21,300 miles and he put less then 2000 miles a year on it. She told us he only drove the SSR on sunny days and never in the winter. This SSR was always garaged and pampered. This modern hot rod convertible truck is in amazing condition!! It is fully loaded up with most if not all of the factory options. I have included a number of pictures to show you the great design and condition of this SSR and a short video follows the pictures so you can hear its throaty stock rumble. Sit back and enjoy….and most importantly picture yourself in this SSR…believe me you will love it! We do have this convertible Modern Hot Rod on our site and a few other websites so if you are interested in making sure it ends up in your garage before the next car guy or gal scoops it up feel free to call me to discuss making that happen!
As you will see in the pictures below the body of this SSR is truly in near flawless condition. The Ricochet Silver color really suits these trucks well and there were only 1202 produced in 2005 in this color. This truck has never had any accidents or paintwork and is simply in amazing condition. The previous owner added a thin red and black pinstripe that goes around the body line and really looks great. I will hesitate to call it flawless since the pickiest of buyers will detect some extremely tiny rock chips. However, I know the next owner will be amazed by the condition! The Chrome wheels glisten against the silver paint and the running boards are painted in the same Ricochet silver color. These trucks have a great stance with the meatier rear 20″ wheel/tire combination and 19″ wheels up front. The hard top convertible feature on these trucks is really amazing. With just the push of a button and in a matter of seconds this hard top truck morphs in to a an open air convertible roadster truck…how cool!! The top works flawlessly and this SSR goes from hardtop truck to convertible fun machine in just seconds. Lets not forget that this hot rod is also a truck. But lets be truthful for a second. The trucks cargo compartment is carpeted and has the body colored strips and is more like a trunk then a truck bed that you are going to haul gravel in. This modern hot rod is designed for the sunny day cruises more then it is for the trips to Home Depot! These SSR’s are always welcome at the local car shows and cruise-ins and there is quite a loyal following of enthusiasts for these trucks. As you will see in the pics that follow the body on this Ricochet Silver beauty is in spectacular condition! Here is a photo tour of the body:
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. The Ebony leather interior is in fantastic condition and is extremely comfortable for driver and passenger. Almost no wear on the drivers side bolster and it looks like the passenger seat was barely sat in. 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 the Custom SSR floor mats finish off the look. This one also has the optional gauge package in the console giving you outside temperature and other vitals. Have a look inside:
Aside from the awesome, jaw-dropping color and great looks this 2005 SSR is a power house and extremely fun to drive thanks to the 390 horsepower LS2 Corvette Motor. As I mentioned earlier I have driven a 2004 SSR and the difference in performance is truly like day and night. The 4760 lb 2005 SSR will blast to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds and through the quarter mile in 13.8 seconds, more then 2 seconds faster than the ’03-’04 models The steering system in the 2005 SSR was revised for smoother operation and easier handling at low speeds. The sound of the LS2 V8 at high revs is intoxicating and the dual exhaust maintains a nice throaty sound at idle. Front and rear stabilizer bars, tuned shocks, 4 wheel anti-lock brakes, and some meaty Rubber on all four corners makes for some great times on the highway and local roads. The staggered Chrome wheels look fantastic with no curb rash. This SSR runs and drives as you would expect for one with very low miles. It is an absolute pleasure at any speed and turns heads everywhere you take it. This truly is an amazing driving experience in a Roadster styled truck that is one of a kind! Take a look under the hood and be sure to listen to the video that follows to hear it start up and running:
