Description for Chevrolet Suburban 1972

72 'Burb with 67 hood and grille. 500ci Cadillac motor with TH-400 transmission. Front and Rear A/C, 06 Suburban leather seats, new carpet, door panels, extra insulation, rebuilt front end with 3" drop spindles, 4' drop springs in the rear, good brakes all around, new shocks, nearly new wheels and tires, new gas tank, solid body and frame with some minor rust repairs in the usual C-10 places. Aluminum radiator, new battery, recent door rubber, extra parts. The motor is a 76 vintage and runs fine on regular pump gas. A few quirks, but reliable transportation for shows and Lowe's! Questions answered ASAP.

UPDATE: The engine/trans came from a 76 Coupe Deville. The story was the owner installed a new crate motor and had the trans rebuilt. Shortly after, he died and the car sat next to the house for 8 years until the wife had to sell and move. We pulled the engine/trans as a unit and found them to be much cleaner than the surrounding engine bay so I believe the story. The engine runs great and the trans shifts up and down smoothly. There are some drips under the truck, but a piece of cardboard takes care of stains. The A/C is a kit from Vintage Air and blows cold. The gauges all work, but I added a set to closely monitor temp/oil pressure/voltage. The speedometer reads about 10 mph slow due to the cable gear from the original TH350. There is an exhaust leak from the passenger side manifold, but it subsides after heating up. I bought the truck in 2007 and installed the motor/trans in 2010, so I've been driving it a while. The worse "need to fix" is a howling pinion bearing in the rear end. It's been howling since I've owned it...just don't drive it enough to worry about it. The truck had 69k miles when I bought it and now it has 86k. I set my reserve to reflect the cost of possible rear-end work. I also have the truck for sale locally and reserve the right to end this auction should it sell.
