Kruse-IRL Collector Car Auction
Fontana, Ca.

VIN #11--Doobie Bros. Music Tour SSR
Sold for $57,500.00

Vin #13--Los Lobos Music Tour SSR
Sold for $50,500.00

This information is taken from Chevylaunch.com.

For those of us waiting and/or willing to pay
MSRP+, these two SSRs are quite a bargain.
:confused
Oh well. Still waiting in Texas.

Price?

:confused Wow! The price sure did drop on those signature series SSR's. They are actually cheaper than the rip off dealers in my state charging in the 60's and 70's for SSR's that aren't even sig. series models. Should be interesting to see where all this goes.

If there are major problems with the retractable top, the signature series that have been out are worthless. I bet the regular production cars, if they come out, will be worth more since they'll be less problematic. (Who says I'm not optimistic?)

I work at a GM dealership and had to ask to get the
password. It is supposed to be used only by the sales
dept. You might ask your salesperson for it. I'll try to
keep you guys and girls posted if something big comes up.

Canadian auction

Chevy SSR Sold to the Highest Bidder for $93,100

Chevy SSR and eBay.ca Motors present auction proceeds to
the Canadian Cancer Society

TORONTO, Sept. 22 /CNW/ - The first Chevy SSR available for sale in
Canada sold for $93,100 on eBay.ca Motors as part of a charity auction. Lee
Munro of Paris, Ontario placed the highest bid on the Chevy SSR - buying one
of the most highly anticipated new vehicles in Canada.
"I am truly ecstatic to have been a part of this auction - not only have
I purchased one of the most unique cars in Canada, but I have also been able
to help an extremely important charity," said Lee Munro, owner of Lee Munro
Chevrolet. "General Motors of Canada, eBay.ca and the Canadian Cancer Society
have created an opportunity that is almost impossible for any car-lover to
pass up."
"The Chevy SSR auction was a huge success and we are thrilled with the
overwhelming bidding response," said Jennifer Dawkins, director of advertising
for GM of Canada. "We would like to thank all Canadians that took part in the
auction and helped generate the funds that will go to the Canadian Cancer
Society."
The Chevy SSR was auctioned on eBay.ca Motors from September 5-15, 2003,
with one hundred per cent of the auction proceeds being donated to the
Canadian Cancer Society. The new Chevy SSR combines the muscle and eye-
gripping looks of a performance roadster with the durability and space of a
pick-up.
General Motors has a long history of supporting cancer-related causes and
the Canadian Cancer Society. GM has contributed $250,000 toward helping the
Society achieve its mission, and both GM and its employees have contributed
almost $8 million to cancer causes in Canada over recent years.
"We are thrilled with the results of the charity auction of the first
Chevy SSR," says Valerie Carter, Group Director, Brand Management, Canadian
Cancer Society. "The support of General Motors and the generous donation we
receive from this innovative fundraising partnership will help to strengthen
the fight against cancer in communities across Canada."
To facilitate the auction process, GM has partnered with eBay.ca Motors,
the world's largest and most experienced online marketplace for the sale of
vehicles. Every month, millions of car dealers and consumers turn to eBay.ca
Motors to buy and sell used cars, parts and accessories as well as other
vehicles, collectibles and related items in a secure and cost-effective
environment.
"The sale of the Chevy SSR on eBay.ca attracted a considerable number of
visitors over the ten-day auction period. We are happy that the sale of the
car raised such a significant number of dollars for a wonderful cause," said
Jordan Banks, head of business and strategic development, eBay Canada.

Perhaps the relatively low prices the signature series are fetching will send a message to some dealers who are looking for more than MSRP on the units they have coming in. Kind of confirms that the SSR may be overpriced for the current economic market.

I bought mine for $51,000. Build date is now Nov. 3 and its a 2003 model. Unfortunately I'm going to have to back out of the deal and I'm looking for someone to take my place.

:D I can't imagine that Gibson guitar SSR went for less than the
Street Art NE SSR. The picture that came with the unit was awful.

:) Anyone out there going to order a new chevy HHR ("49 retro)?
Due in 2005 I think. Looks like a cool hauler!!
