The rare, low-mileage, Silver Ice Metallic sedan was recently damaged by a fallen tree limb, and the original owner has decided to sell it to someone who is willing to make the repairs.
For the sound price of $6,200 plus a new windshield, a fender, and some repairs to the A-pillar, you could potentially have a very sound and very capable daily driver that can also double as an occasional track rat. If you’re curious, you can see an image of the damage below.
I won’t deny it, I’m sort of a fanboy when it comes to these Cobalt SS sedans as I’m a sucker for exclusivity; even if it’s “just a Cobalt.” As you may know, GM only built 474 turbocharged SS sedans for the American market for the 2009 model year (note: this was the only year they were produced).
Another 285 sedans were sent to our maple-tree-loving neighbors up north, for a total of 759 units for the North American market. Of those 759 sedans, 134 bore a Silver Ice Metallic finish, making it the second-most common color. I own a Black sedan, and those are the most common in the NA market with 275 units.
I’m not the only goon who gushes over these cars. In 2013 Patrick George published an article on Jalopnik titled, “Why The Chevrolet Cobalt SS Is A Future Classic.” Andre Smirnov of The Fast Lane Car wrote a similar piece titled, “Modern Collectibles Revealed: Turbocharged 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Coupe.”
Regardless of whether or not the turbocharged sedans have any potential as a future collector – you shouldn’t really purchase a vehicle with the expectation of a return-on-investment – there’s no denying that this is a pretty sweet deal. I purchased my sedan for half as much, but it had 184,000 miles and needed a
bit lot of work. Based on my observations of the market, turbocharged Cobalt SS sedans can be had for as little as $5,500 or as much as $10,500 depending on the condition.
