When the Chevy SSR pickup hit the streets, there was just no doubt that it would be a hot future collectable. Built in limited numbers, and by the time this 2005 example was built, it had a proper 6.0 liter V8 and a 6-speed manual transmission, finally delivering on the promises made by its outrageous look. Black is one of the SSR's more subtle colors, but there's no mistaking that shape, which was strongly influenced by the Advance Design pickups of the late-40s. The grille, the rounded fenders, and the deep-draw rear fenders that suggest a stepside box are all design cues that take us back in time. But at the same time, the advanced materials that form the body of this truck are what made it practical to build, and with just over 11,000 original miles, it remains in outstanding condition. The finish is extremely nice, as if GM knew these were special vehicles and told their painters to take their time and get it right. It's never been hit, of course, so everything fits together the way they set it at the factory, and if you're looking for a 2-seat roadster, there are none as practical as this. This one also features an exterior chrome package and teak planks in the cargo area that tie it directly to its inspirational heritage. The interior is pure 21st century cool. Forget bench seats and rubber floor mats, this one has dark gray leather buckets that would look at home in a Corvette plus every luxury and convenience feature you can imagine. Ice cold A/C, a powerful stereo, and power everything (including the folding hardtop) are at your fingertips. The 6-speed manual was a late addition to the spec sheet, but it completely transforms the truck into a muscle car that can run with some pretty serious hardware, yet remains light and easy to drive around town. The leather seating surfaces show only the most minor signs of having been used, and the black carpets have not seen rain or dirt thanks to a set of matching SSR-embroidered floor mats. The other big news for 2005 was the arrival of serious horsepower in the form of the 6.0 liter Vortec V8. Early SSRs made due with a 5.3 liter engine that was hard-pressed to deliver the thrills that the swoopy bodywork suggested, but the 6.0 completely cures that malady. Hidden under a plastic shroud, it makes 390 horsepower and is related to the mill used in Chevy trucks, so it has outstanding torque and will probably last practically forever. It offers great V8 sounds thanks to a true dual exhaust system, and the K&N air intake setup probably adds a few ponies that the other guy may not have. Powerful disc brakes, a grippy but compliant suspension, and quick steering help it bridge the gap between muscle car and pickup truck. Staggered factory wheels wear optional chrome plating and 255/45/19 front and 295/40/20 rear Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires. Still as stunning today as it was ten years ago when it hit the market, the SSR is quite possibly the first and only no-compromises muscle car. Call today!
