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.  This is the 11th SSR we have had and I understand why the 2005 and 2006 models are so much more desirable then the 2003-2004′s. 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 particular ’05 SSR is a truly eye-catching color called Aqua Blur and comes loaded with options including the 1SB Preferred Equipment Group, Chrome wheels, Aqua Blur Running boards, Aux Gauge Package, Carpeted Trunk, Trunk light, Power Memory seats, heated seats, Bose Premium sound with 6 disc in dash changer, Homelink Garage opener and more! We recently acquired this one from a great guy about 2 hours out of Atlanta. Originally owned by a car enthusiast in Ohio who sold it after 2 years when it had just under 13,000 miles. It was sold to another car guy in the Atlanta, GA area who enjoyed the car for another 5 years when it was sold to the 3rd owner locally who only put  a little over 1000 miles on it during his 2 1/2 years of ownership. This SSR was always garaged and pampered. It was stored under a custom fitted cover when not in use that will be included.  This modern hot rod 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!

As you will see in the pictures that follow the body on this Aqua Blur Beauty is close to flawless. The color is mind boggling as it takes on various shades of blue, green and purple as the sun light hits it. At night it takes on a darker tone and in the sun light it just glistens and sparkles! If you are going to own such a unique vehicle why not go all the way and own one in a truly unique color!! There were only 1288 ’05 SSR’s produced in this color and probably less then 400 with the 6-speed.  We were told that that while the original owner had this car someone backed in to the rear bumper at under 5 mph in a parking lot not once, but twice. The only damage was very minor to the rear bumper but it did get professionally repainted and you would never know. This particular one has the optional integrated running boards in the same Aqua Blur body color that really enhance the look of the truck. If I had to pick it apart I would mention just a couple of extremely small rock chips in the paint that have been touched up and a very tiny hairline scratch on the rear cargo door. You probably would not notice these on inspection and I do not think they will show in the pictures. Custom Polished Billet Grille Inserts were added that I feel give the front grille a more attractive look. Gorgeous Chrome Wheels with no curb rash at all and tires still have tons of tread life. Great stance from the 20″ rears and 19″ fronts. 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 carpeted cargo area with some custom slats in the Aqua Blue Color 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 near perfect condition you would expect from one with just 17,950 miles on it. 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 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 there are several convenient cup holders as well. We will be including a Custom SSR floor mats to finish off the look. This one also has the optional gauge package in the console giving you outside temperature and other vitals. Always stored under a custom cover when not in use which will be included with the purchase.  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 Tremec 6-speed manual 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 Goodyear Rubber on all four corners makes for some great times on the highway and local roads. This truly is an amazing driving experience in a Roadster styled truck that is one of a kind!
