Last Friday GM’s Craft Centre plant built the 24,150th Chevrolet SSR retro hotrod pickup. The Trailblazer-based SSR had been produced for three years at Craft Centre but never caught on much with consumers due to its lack of practicality for a truck and, at least initially, the lack of available grunt from its standard 5.3L Vortec V8 and four-speed automatic to get the thing going. The latter was remedied when Chevy began offering the $40,000 truck with its 400-hp, 6.0L LS2 V8 and a six-speed manual.

Much of the design and production of the SSR was handled by convertible and engineering specialist ASC and then handed over to GM’s Craft Centre.

RIP SSR
