Not that I know of. The incremental cost of including SSB in a QRO-class rig is small enough that it doesn't make much sense to leave it out. A CW-only rig would also be more difficult to sell on the used market.

One of the very last 100W radios was the Heathkit HX-1681 around 1980. It was CW only.

The Elecraft K2 can be built as a 100W CW only transceiver if you leave out the SSB option.
