This 2004 Chevrolet SSR was basically a hand-crafted custom car that was built with manufacturer precision and quality. Plus, this has the right mix of custom style, modern features, and easy driver attitude that makes for a V8 car/truck with everyday versatility.
Chevy's Advance Design pickups are a favorite custom pickup base, but Chevrolet seemed to outdo even the big name customizers when the retro-cool SSR hit the scene. After all, the folding hardtop can disappear behind the seats to have a smooth roadster look, and the truck-like style means the covered bed is like a big trunk to let you tailgate all day at the car show. There are cool details, like the polished wheels, color-matched running boards, and red brake calipers that match the "R" in the SSR's lettering. Plus, we love the stripe package. You have the unique side steaks with black looking great against the factory Slingshot Yellow. And the coordinating racing stripes are a true over-the-top package that's even on the windshield frame and roof for a detailed style. So while you will likely find areas to improve if you're looking for perfection in the finish, most of us see the appeal of having a driver-quality setup. That way it's easy to take out on the road and has the distinction to turn heads everywhere.
The black accents of the exterior not only look stylish against the yellow, but they also provide a great preview of the interior color. So this one looks well-coordinated when the roof is down. Well-sculpted leather bucket seats are bolstered to be the right mix of sporty and all-day comfort. They even power adjust to the ideal position. And there are a ton more amenities to give you a great modern classic. It includes power windows, power locks, power mirrors, cruise control, a tilt steering column, and an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo system with Bose speakers. A modern classic also means modern safety with dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. And your favorite features will likely be the cold-bowing air conditioning and heated seats. It means you can get comfortable with the top don in nearly any weather.
The key to the SSR's performance is a 5.3-liter V8. This numbers-matching motor is related to GM's truck line. It means a modern fuel-injected powerhouse with a robust attitude. There are plenty of performance upgrades available for those who want to take it to the extreme, but with 300 hp already on tap, it already has that ideal setup for impressive power in all conditions. And it feels like an all-around solid cruiser with a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a suspension that's the right mix of sporty and highway-ready comfort.
This is a loaded and unique car/truck/roadster that has the overall style that makes it easy to hop in on a whim and enjoy the drive. So if you love a custom truck with factory-level quality, you know you need this SSR. Call today!!!
