If the El Camino was a car that thought it was a truck, the Chevy SSR was a truck that thought it was a convertible. And it was. More or less.

First introduced at the Detroit auto show in 2000, the Chevy SSR, or Super Sport Roadster, received rave reviews and enough positive attention to convince Chevrolet that this was one concept worth constructing.

So construct it they did.

Created entirely on a computer, the Chevy SSR was built in 2003, but had a short production life of only a few years before officially being discontinued in 2006.

Although rare, you can still find a Chevy SSR if you can find the right Chevy dealer.
