Outstanding SSR roadster pickup with Magnuson intercooled supercharger! Only 2 Texas owners from new, and just 6,000 miles on the odometer! Optioned with chrome wheels, Bose audio system with 6-disc in-dash audio system, wood trimmed bed, cargo net, automatic transmission, and more! A super exciting truck in the perfect color combination!

Beginning as a concept show car in 2000, the Chevrolet design team created a Super Sport Roadster to highlight a performance inspired pickup for .....
the Detroit Auto Show. Both spectators and GM executives provided a positive response to the hardtop retractable roadster, but Chevrolet held off production until late 2003 offering it as a 2004 production vehicle. Initially fitted with a 5.3L Vortec V8, it wasn't long before the horsepower hungry buyers convinced the GM brass that the long-lived Chevrolet Super Sport namesake deserved a more appropriate power plant. So, in came the Corvette LS2 6.0L all aluminum V8 in 2005! This new heartbeat was only mildly detuned to 390bhp and mated to 4-speed overdrive automatic, or a Tremec 6-speed manual transmission. To handle the power, the chassis was fitted with an independent front suspension, 5-link rear suspension, front & rear sway bars, tuned shock absorbers, staggered wheels measuring 255/45R19 up front & 295/40R20 at the rear, and a 3.73 limited-slip differential. Sales improved with this novel truck to Chevy enthusiasts, but only 24,112 units found garages during their short 3-year run. Today, they continue to receive easy head-turning appeal with performance that will surprise any driver once behind the wheel!

Offered here is a 2005 Chevrolet SSR convertible pickup finished in factory correct Redline Red over Ebony Leather interior. Features include a LS2 6.0L V8, automatic transmission, air conditioning, power 4-wheel disc brakes, power steering, power retractable roof, power windows & locks, power heated outside mirrors, cruise control, Bose premium AM/FM/6-disc in dash CD changer, power truck bed cover release, keyless entry, and tilt steering column. Optional equipment on this stunning truck include factory upgraded chrome wheels, auxiliary console gauges, cargo compartment wood trim, SSR carpeted floor mats, appointments for a tow hitch, and a rear cargo net.

Having sold new to the first owner located in Weatherford, TX in August 2005, this owner would enjoy the SSR for exactly 2 years, adding approximately 3,000 miles to the odometer. It then sold to a Bullard, TX collection in July 2007 where it would remain until the St. Louis Car Museum would acquire it in June 2020. This second owner wanted to personalize this truck to his own performance tastes, and since GM had a warranty approved Magnuson Radix LS2 Magnacharger system, this intercooled supercharger would be installed in February 2008 and dyno-tuned by Speedzone Performance to 412 rear-wheel horsepower and 433 lb. ft. of torque! A new 84-month/100k mile extended warranty through Peltier Chevrolet based in Tyler, TX would go into effect in September 2008 at 4,056 miles on the odometer.

It would be owned and cared for professionally within a fantastic car collection ever since! Today, the odometer just turned 6,005 miles, and it continues to perform perfectly in every respect! Included with the car will be the original books & manuals, window sticker, and the dyno sheets. If you are looking for a high quality SSR with some added excitement under the hood, look no further! This one is hard to beat, literally!
