Description

Lot #505 - All the performance and conveniences of a modern muscle car in the body of a classic pickup truck. Chevrolet introduced the limited production SSR as a tribute to the advance design pickups, built from 1947-55. So what better then to combine the tribute with the inspiration? Introducing a 2004 Chevy SSR beneath the skin of a 1950 Chevy pickup. The already performance-built SSR chassis retains its coilover front suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS, traction control and gear-based limited-slip rear differential. Upgrades include a custom aluminum stiffening plate under the engine, stiffening cross-member midway, Beltech Street Performance Shocks and Spohn adjustable 5-link rear suspension. The stock 325cid Vortec V8 produces 300hp on regular 87 octane pump gas, with a 25-gallon fuel tank. The body has all new fenders, tinted glass, weather stripping, handles, lights, stainless steel fasteners and the specially tuned SSR body mounts. By channeling the body down over the frame, stock ride height is maintained, ensuring none of the suspension components fall prey to road hazards. The mahogany bed has a hide-away storage compartment and sports a matching cruiser bicycle with mahogany accents. Inside it's all about comfort. The SSR interior has been integrated to combine a tasteful blend of old and new. Features include air conditioning, power steering, cruise control, power heated leather seats, Bose 6-speaker 6 CD sound system, leather-wrapped tilt wheel and auto-dimming Homelink rear view mirror with reading lamps. No trailer queen, this truck has been masterfully fabricated to be driven. And if the need arises, you can go to any Chevrolet dealer for service. Included with the sale is a photo build book, all receipts cataloged in chronological order and SSR owner's manual.
