Up for auction is my 1962 Suburban. I was in the process of restoring this,but unexpected medical bills are forcing me to sell it. Below is a list of work that has been completed on the vehicle.
1)NEW fuel tank,sending unit and fuel filters.
2)Fresh transmission filter and fluid change.
3)Changed engine oil and filter
4)Tune up including plugs,wires,distributor cap,rotor button,points,condenser and coil.
5)Replaced one rear brake line that was rusted
7)Cooper radial Tires with good tread.
The previous owner replaced the six cylinder engine with a 327 2bbl. According to the serial number on the block,it is a 1969 model.
The transmission is a THD350 from the same year.
It originally had a two speed power glide.
Odometer reads 50,837. Not sure if this original, or if it has tripped. Speedometer does not work.
It runs and drives well. Doesn't smoke at all and holds good oil pressure at all rpm ranges. It has aftermarket oil,temp, and amp. gauges.
It has manual steering, which is tight. Manual brakes, which hold well.
It has stock manifolds and a single exhaust with a stock muffler.
The radiator may need repair, as I have noticed some coolant seepage near the top, when the vehicle has reached operating temperature. It just appears wet, does not leak to the ground.
The lights and wipers function as they should. I am not sure about the heater. I have not tried it. Has the original AM radio, which doesn't appear to work.
It has been painted, at least once before I purchased it. It is due for a paint job and body work now. I have included photos of each panel to show exact condition. It has clamshell rear doors and sliding side windows.
The previous owner used it as a flower delivery truck, and had welded some metal racks in the rear to hold plant trays. There are some spots that will need to be filled where these were welded in. See interior photos for close ups of these areas.
It has bucket seats from another vehicle with shoulder strap seat belts. They are in good condition.
The back cargo area has the original rubber mat in place, and has the mounting holes for the original rear seats. Unfortunately I do not have the seats.
The original wooden floor in the cargo area has been replaced with thick, marine grade plywood, which is solid.
The undercarriage and frame rails have some surface rust, but are solid. There is one small rust hole in the bottom leg of one frame rail near the back,on the driver's side. This does not affect the strength of the chassis, since it is not on the side portion of the frame. I have attached a photo detailing this area. It appears to have rusted between two holes that were drilled in the frame when the chassis was built.
I have tired to describe this vehicle and thoroughly and honestly as possible. Please email me with any questions.
Vehicle is being sold, AS-IS,WHERE IS.
Even though the truck runs and drives fine, I would plan on trailering it home if you are out of town.
$500.00 deposit will be required within 24 hours of auction close. I will accept PayPal or cash, at time of pickup for the balance.
