Classic style, full utility, and plenty of comfort come together in this 1979 Chevrolet Suburban Silverado. After all, you get a three-row SUV with everything from a 4x4 drivetrain to a cold A/C interior. It even was built with the extra-duty Trailering Special upgrades. Where was this truck from originally? Greensboro, NC, just a short, couple hour drive from our showroom. We know this because the current owner states they purchased it from the original. So when this much appeal is in an exceptional preserved low-mileage package, it's time to pay attention.
This SUV is nothing but straight body lines, and horizontal brightwork, so this high-quality presentation is essential. The Colonial Yellow and Santa Fe Tan is a great color combo when you want a vehicle that's both vintage and dignified. In fact, the majority of this shows to be the original application. That's what you get on a car that has gone less than 28k miles in its lifetime. Oh yes, while many Suburbans have been used up in the daily grind, this is a rare opportunity at true vintage cool that retains a ton of ability. That's why you have the tall 4x4 stance, wide tow mirrors, and proper trailer hitch on this verified Trailering Special. So we bet you can already imagine the attention this classic and capable Suburban will get when it shows up everywhere from the campsite to the boat ramp.
Inside is where you can see even more care that has gone into keeping this Suburban looking its best. Three rows of wide benches mean seating for up to nine! And these have a comfy velour upholstery that looks great, right down to the button-top presentation. This can carry the full family and friends all at once, and still leave room for cargo. But the preserved look of the door panels, carpeting, dash, headliner, and more don't show any signs of a high-traffic life in this low-mileage classic. Instead, it's a time capsule-like atmosphere, right down to the premium Silverado western-style pattern in the door panels. Even as true classic, this was built to keep the driver comfortable over the long haul. The tilt steering column gives a clear view to the gauge panel that wraps around you. So it's an easy reach to desirable features like cruise control and the factory air conditioning (now running modern R134a.) This also has handy features on the dash for functions like the power rear window and rear A/C controls. There's even a classic Kelsey Hayes trailer brake control.
Just like the rest of the SUV, when you lift the hood it looks correct and exceptionally maintained. This has a hardy 400 cubic-inch V8, which gives you big block displacement in a small block weight. It's believed to be the original motor, and the way it fires up readily is another reminder of how well this one has been treated. There's a two-speed transfer case to choose the right kind of off road work, and the BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires assures that you can keep going even when the pavement ends. But this Suburban is the kind of pristine classic that doesn't need to get muddy. That's why it's good for everyday driving with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs. And don't forget that the Trailering Special package was there to aid in fortification and cooling under heavy loads, and you also have a 40-gallon gas tank. So road trips are still easy in this classic.
Complete with title documentation, this is that perfect vintage vehicle that can look good towing the toys or grab attention all on its own. It's the turn-key classic that lets you spend more time with your family and friends. Call now!
