RARE RICOCHET SILVER 2005 CHEVROLET SSR MODERN HOT ROD CONVERTIBLE TRUCK…1 OF 1202 PRODUCED IN THIS COLOR IN THE U.S…LOADED WITH CHROME WHEELS AND JUST 16,700 MILES AND IN NEAR FLAWLESS CONDITION!!
FUTURE COLLECTIBLE THAT YOU CAN DRIVE AND ENJOY… EVERY CAR GUY/GAL SHOULD OWN ONE AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIFE!
IT IS EASY TO SEE THAT THE SSR GOT IT STYLING CUES FROM THE EARLY CHEVY 3100 TRUCKS AND RIGHT NOW WE ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE BOTH OF THESE IN OUR INVENTORY…. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN THE OLD AND THE NEW… HERE IS A LOOK AT THE 2 TOGETHER, HOWEVER, THIS AUCTION IS ONLY FOR THE RICOCHET SILVER 2005 SSR. THE 1949 CHEVY 3100 IS ALSO FOR SALE. FEEL FREE TO CALL ME FOR DETAILS.
There is no denying that the Early Chevy 3100 Trucks are hot collectibles with great styling, but there is one modern feature the SSR offers that gives it that added cool factor…one push of the button and that convertible hardtop retracts and you are enjoying an open air roadster truck with an LS2 Corvette motor putting out 390 horsepower!! I find that the typical buyer of an SSR is an individual who either owns, or previously has owned, several classic, muscle or exotic cars in their lifetime and is looking for a modern collectible hot rod that can be driven and enjoyed while still catching all the eyes on the road or at car shows and cruise-ins.
This is the 10th SSR we have had and there is no doubt that the 2005 and 2006 models have proven to be more desirable then the 2003-2004′s. The neck-snapping increase in Horsepower from the Gen IV 6.0L LS2 V-8 turns this 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. 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.
We recently acquired this Ricochet beauty from a gentleman here in Georgia who owned it for a little over 3 years and put less then 2000 miles on it during that time. His wifes stepfather was the original owner and it was purchased new at Woodruff Chevrolet in Woodruff, South Carolina. He could no longer justify keeping this awesome SSR as he simply just never had the time to drive and enjoy it. It has been maintained meticulously and is in absolutely beautiful condition and is nicely loaded and has the upgraded Chrome wheels which really set off the Silver Metallic color. This pampered Southern SSR has really just been broken in with just under 16,700 miles. As you will see in the pics we have the Original Window Sticker and original sales invoice as well as the original manuals, tool for the top and both key fobs.
I will do my best to include quite a few large images and a video so you can see and hear how awesome this SSR is. With only 1202 produced in this color, coupled with the low miles and amazing condition, this truck is an investment you will truly enjoy….don’t you deserve it?? The pictures may take a few minutes to load but I think they will be worth the wait…sit back and enjoy!
As you will see in the pictures that follow the body on this Ricochet Silver Beauty is close to flawless. This SSR has never been in any type of accident and the paint and body are in fabulous condition. This particular one has the optional integrated running boards that really enhance the look of the truck. To play it safe I will call it near flawless as there are a few extremely tiny rock chips and a couple of very small scratches that should buff out. The upgraded Chevrolet Chrome wheels truly set this truck off giving it that added Hot Rod Appearance. Great stance from the 20″ rears and 19″ fronts and you can tell this SSR was driven conservatively as the Continental tires have tons of meat on them. 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 carpeting with wood trim 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 runs to Home Depot for lumber and mulch. As you will see this truck is in near perfect condition just as you would expect from one with such low mileage. Here is a walk around 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, smalls like a new car, and is extremely comfortable for driver and passenger. Practically no wear on the drivers side seat 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 there are several convenient cup holders as well. I have the original owners manuals and the original cd that walks you through the vehicle and tells you how to personalize all the settings. Come check it out:
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 and the strong shifting automatic transmission this one is equipped with. 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 Continental Rubber on all four corners makes for some great times on the highway and local roads. This is truly an amazing driving experience in a Roadster Truck that is one of a kind! I have personally driven this SSR and can testify that it drives silky smooth and as good as new!!
