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 7th SSR we have had and it is currently #1 on our list of favorites due to the amazing condition and tasteful add-ons you will see. There is no argument that the 2005 and 2006 models much 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 into 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. I loved the 2004 SSR we had but 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.
*** You may have noticed the Ricochet Silver 2005 SSR pictured above. It just arrived and will also be available for sale separately. It has under 9000 miles and is a rare 6-speed, loaded with factory options and in top condition. Feel free to call or email me if you prefer the Silver 6-speed.
This particular Slingshot Yellow SSR is decked out with custom, tasteful touches outside, inside, under the hood, and even underneath!!! We acquired this one from a great guy in Washington State who owned it for 2 1/2 years and struggled with the idea of selling it but he just found that he rarely enjoyed it because he would never drive it in the rain and he could only take one of his kids with him when he did drive it. When I emailed him to let him know it had arrived he told me he missed it already and I believe him!! He was the 2nd owner and the original owner was a retired IBM executive and this was his baby!! He kept extensive records of everything he bought and they will be included. Both owners took amazing care of this modern hot rod and as a result it is in showroom condition!! I have included a number of pictures to show you the great design and condition of this SSR and I did a walk around video that hits the highlights and a short video that 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!
Lets start with the body on this SSR. Simply put, the paint and body are basically as close to flawless as you will find. The only thing keeping me from saying it is absolutely mint is a very tiny scratch on the roof that was touched up. That is it!! I did not see any other flaws. You will notice that this truck has many of the factory options including color keyed running boards, carpeted bed with wood grain and hard sided saddle storage containers. What truly makes this SSR stand out are the custom modifications and there are several worth mentioning on the exterior. Here is a list of most of them:
- Custom rear deck painted spoiler
- Custom tail lights with 1961 Chevy lenses and LED lighting
- Chrome headlight to headlight bar
- Custom front and rear polished stainless steel nerf bars
- Chrome exterior door handles
- LED lighted wind supressor with SSR lettering
- Billett rear slotted license plate cover
- Custom front air dam
- Chrome Fog Light Bezels
- Custom Removeable front license plate bracket (seen in some pics)
- Red Brake Caliper Covers
- plus more!!
Here is a picture tour of this beautiful Hot Rod and some close ups of some of the custom touches. There is a video walk around tour at the end of the listing as well.
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!!
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. Original owner added stainless steel pedal covers and foot rest. A custom dash mat adds a nice touch and reduces glare. 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. 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:
NOW IS A GREAT TIME TO REMIND YOU THAT THIS YELLOW BEAUTY HAS UNDER 9850 MILES!!
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 Hydramatic 4L65-E 4-speed 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 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!
This SSR has a throatier sound and better performance thanks to the CORSA Perfromance RSC exhaust system that the original owner added. This system was flow bench tested to give an 89% gain in exhaust flow vs. stock system. This exhaust system cost over $1000 installed. Another pretty unique feature to this SSR is the Spare Tire Kit that was added under the rear bed. Of course lets not forget the great stance with the Factory 20″ Rear wheels and 19″ fronts. Wheels are in perfect condition with no curb rash and tires are also close to new.
Under the hood you will find yet another great group of custom modifications to enhance the appearance and really make this SSR a show-ready modern Hot Rod. As you will see there is a complete Billett engine dress up including fluid caps, fuse box cover, brake fluid reservoir cover, radiator tank overflow cover, a/c cover caps, and air box strip inserts. Billet water pump pulley cover and chrome handle dip stick. Polished billett alternator cover base and Chrome 145 amp Delco Alternator with clutch pulley. Awesome Carbon Fiber finished engine cover and Custom SSR under hood emblem add nice finishing touches. Lots of $$$$ spent on these accessories!!

Here is a final walk around video tour for those of you who would like a final review of this beauty:
Hopefully you will agree that this is an outstanding SSR and I think you owe it to yourself to compare it to any other you are considering. Aside from the extremely low mileage, the look and sound of this one certainly helps it stand heads and shoulders above the others!! This will be a great investment that you can drive and enjoy and take to the shows if that is what you enjoy.
