Forget Crossover Convertibles And Buy This 2005 Colorado-Based Roadster Instead

Used Chevrolet Colorados aren’t very exciting, but this isn’t your typical pickup truck. Instead, it’s a highly customized roadster that was created by Kentucky’s Cool Cars.

Set to be auctioned off by Mecum in November, this 2005 Colorado is bound to turn heads as it features a chopped windshield, suicide doors and an open cockpit.

If that wasn’t interesting enough, the truck has also been equipped with a billet grille, shaved door handles and 22-inch wheels and sports a custom paint job as well as a tailgate that has been welded shut. The latter limits the truck’s practicality, but the bed is open and provides a look at the rear end as well as the air ride kit.

The unique styling continues in the cabin as there’s tan leather seats with snakeskin inserts. The modified Colorado also boasts suede upholstery and a fiberglass center console which houses a DVD player, controls for the shortened windows, red accents, custom rear seats and an powerful audio system.

The listing is light on performance specifications, but the truck appears to feature a 3.5-liter five-cylinder that has been outfitted with a K&N air intake. If that’s the case, it likely produces a tad more than the stock model’s 220 hp (164 kW / 223 PS) and 225 lb-ft (305 Nm) of torque.

The listing doesn’t mention an estimated price, but a posting from a previous auction suggested it could go for between $75,000 – $100,000.
