Suburban 1979

Title Status --
Exterior Color Yellow
Interior Color Tan


This 1979 GMC Suburban is that ideal affordable classic that has numbers-matching big V8 power so you never have to leave anyone or anything at home. And with a cool two-tone style and even cooler A/C interior, you know this is the one that everyone will enjoy.

This Suburban has a very cool sense of style. The two-tone yellow and white was an update later in life, but it has the unmistakable 1970s vibe. There's a nice shine, but the finish is not so special that you won't hesitate to use this one for the long haul (after all, we love Suburbans because they can go almost everywhere and take almost anything with them.) This also has great details, like an updated grille and the premium trim separating the two-tone. Plus, the color matched wheels are an awesome upgraded that have the retro-cool solid style and two-piece trim.

Inside, this really has a great preserved/survivor-style presentation, right down to the button-top seatbacks. In fact, while these often were used up for big trips every day, this one has averaged less than 2,100 miles annually so far. You get three rows of wide benches for seating up to nine total with seatbelts - only special-order Suburbans do that today! With plenty of room behind the third row for cargo, this is the ideal machine for everything from camping to tailgating. It even has the right features for long-haul comfort like an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, tilt steering column, and cold-blowing air conditioning.

With a Suburban that has been so vintage so far, it's no surprise to lift the hood and see the numbers-matching V8. Of course, you also want the original motor, because this was born with a 454 cubic-inch big block! It has a well-maintained look, and there's some added polished flair, but the real investment you're going to love is in the added power. The Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor is now mounted on an Edelbrock Performer intake, and long tube headers now feed the dual exhaust. It delivers plenty of power with a nice smooth feeling that makes this classic SUV quite practical. This rugged sophisticate is comfortable for the long trips thanks to power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a strong TH400 three-speed automatic transmission.

Complete with maintenance records, this Suburban is powerful, distinct, and has everything you want. So don't miss this deal, call today!
