Lot 57 - 2005 Chevrolet SSR Convertible
|Odometer reading||19,000 miles|
|Estimate||£16,000 - £22,000|
The Chevrolet SSR (Super Sport Roadster) is a retractable hardtop pickup truck (where GM saw the gap in that market) manufactured between 2003 and 2006. An early production SSR was the pace car for the 2003 Indianapolis 500. With the SSR pickup truck ""crossover,"" Chevrolet has come up with a vehicle that's like nothing else on the road. Flaunting design cues that hark back to pickups of the distant past, the SSR features a retractable roof. Output has risen to 390bhp for 2005, courtesy of a larger 6 litre V8 as well as a six-speed-manual transmission. It is a beautiful show vehicle with a strong street-rod heritage as well as a healthy dose of hot-rod performance. It's designed with style and offers mainstream buyers to own a real concept vehicle normally found only at car shows.
The example presented here is the 2005 model with an automatic gearbox, 300bhp on tap and a 5.3 litre motor. It looks very striking in deep metallic purple with full black leather interior and, not to mention, fully convertible. It has clearly been well cared for and is presented in impeccable original order throughout. The service history, manuals and handbooks all accompany this SSR. A very rare sight in Europe and certainly highly collectable. Go on, stand out from the crowd!
