This handcrafted and metal Hallmark Keepsake ornament, dated for 2009, is a model of the 2004 Chevrolet SSR (Super Sport Roadster) sport pickup truck. The model was crafted by longtime Hallmark artist Don Palmiter. This is the fifteenth in the All-American Truck series. As on all such finely detailed Hallmark models, the wheels turn, and the license plates represent both the year of the vehicle (2004) on the front, and the year of the ornament (2009) on the rear. True to the tradition of these vehicle ornaments, there is a wrapped package on the passenger seat  – red paper with green ribbon. This model is officially licensed by GM.

The ornament is about 3 3/4 inches long. The legend on the box reads:

“Truck fans sat up and took notice when Chevy introduced the SSR. The stunning sport pickup’s power retractable hardtop and retro-inspired syling was loaded with cool. With a raked profile, low hood, and larger rear proportions, this combination open-air roadster and pickup truck recalled the glory days of hot-rodding, when backyard mechanics made folk art from sheet metal and put in on wheels.”

This ornament is item #QX8312 and retailed for $15.00 in the U.S.
