DESCRIPTION

No other automotive nameplate occupies the same time-tested status as the Suburban. Getting its start all the way back in 1935, some eleven generations later it's the longest continuously running brand in automotive history. This 1964 Chevrolet Suburban Restomod is a fitting homage to that extensive legacy. Combining classic styling with some killer aesthetic and feature upgrades, it's one seriously tasteful and unique SUV for the modern ages.



Although four generations had hit the market before this one, it was the '60-'66 models (in particular the restyled and immensely popular '64-'66 and up models) that fueled a sharp rise in SUV sales that would carry on to this day. Sure, the earlier versions sold, but this 4th generation body style really caught people's attention and sold much better than its counterparts, setting the stage for the following 'Action Line' Suburbans to really take off a few years later. Look at this Suburban and you can see why. It's got a classic ruggedness to it, sturdier and beefier than earlier versions. Its Sinfully Cinnamon exterior (that's right, the Dupont paint code was specifically named that to make you drool) compliments that timeless look while at the same time giving it a definite vitality. Some well-applied and tasteful modifications combine with the Suburban's standard styling features to create an SUV with a decidedly custom yet utilitarian appearance. Sure, it's a conversation piece, but you could also see yourself behind the wheel, taking it out on plenty of adventures. It sits just a little lower than most, but still with plenty of clearance for its bright Baby Moons. It's got a very distinctive look from the sides, with only two doors for the driver and passenger, long panels and big windows down each flank, and a standard liftgate/tailgate set-up out back that's a favorite at car shows. Fit and finish is extremely good, not perfect but borderline show-quality with only miniscule imperfections to report, but nevertheless you won't hesitate actually putting this 'Burban to work. The high-impact orange/copper finish is brightened even further by the spacious chrome grille, bumpers, door handles and mirrors, plus there's awesome subtle flame work at the flanks and a little custom pinstripe work out back that also spells out this rig's unique name Struggle Buggy.



Inside is a very comfortable-looking and well thought out custom interior. Its sheer spaciousness is impressive as well plenty of room for cargo. The comfortable, beautifully sculpted and stitched power leather bucket seats and middle console were all borrowed from a later model vehicle and fit perfectly in the front cabin, upholstered in gorgeous two-tone patterns. The rear seat was trimmed to match, and custom side panels were built back there with integrated cup holders, meaning even the rear passengers will feel like royalty. Plush carpeting runs 'wall-to-wall' and come topped with matching floormats, the ornate door panels and side panels were upholstered to match the theme, and that custom center console is a thing of beauty finished with walnut woodgrain and leather and housing cup holders, a leather-trimmed arm rest with storage space inside, a controller for the RideTech suspension below, and a Pioneer multi-media head unit that powers the upgraded speakers stashed throughout the cabin. There's more of that gorgeous walnut inside the dash, which was also painted to match the exterior of the truck, and it houses a Vintage Air HVAC system with billet controls and trick vents. Beautiful Classic Instruments gauges were installed ahead of the driver and keep an eye on the monster under the hood, while just ahead is a wood-rimmed billet steering wheel mounted on a tilt column that ties everything together perfectly. The headliner runs the length of the roof, upholstered in matching two-tone leather that looks incredibly high-end, and there's even an integrated DVD/TV player that drops down for the rear passengers. There's plenty of storage space in the cargo area, which was finished to match the rest of the truck, further proof that nothing was overlooked in this build.



A Chevy 502 Ramjet V8 sits in this amply-sized and very clean engine compartment, which comes decked out in matching orange paint on the inner fenders and firewall that make the engine and its components really jump out at you. Chevy valve covers and long-tube headers look spotless at the flanks of the block, the Ram Air set-up at the top let's everyone know this is a fuel-injected monster that came to party, while components like the aluminum heads, cold air intake system (with coned filter), and giant BeCool radiator up front all turn this engine build up to 11. The big block produces 500+ horsepower, and because it's been tuned by OBD Diagnostics, it's ready for the street today. A modern front-runner kit keeps all the accessories running like a top
