Up for auction is my GMC Suburban Sierra Classic with the 350 cubic inch fuel injected engine.  It has an automatic overdrive transmission and manual locking front hubs. 


 It is in very nice, nearly all original condition.  The only thing that isn't original is white paint and lower strip of tan paint that was redone a short time back.  The only portion of tan that was re-painted was from behind the front wheel well back.  It was redone because some of the clear coat was peeling on the white and there were some small rock chips on the lower tan portion.  The re-paint portion is not car show quality, but is decent.  

It is a Colorado and Wyoming vehicle that is rust free, with the exception of one small rust bubble under the edge of the passenger side mirror and one on the inside bottom edge of the rear passenger door.  The under carriage has no road salt rust damage.  It has a small ding on the right rear corner of the cab approximately 2 feet above the right rear tail light.  It has a dent in the rear bumper at the driver side center.  Other than that, it is in very nice shape for its age.  The paint on the hood and roof is very nice and shiny and the dash is in very nice condition, so I believe this confirms what I was told from the previous owner, that it was always kept in the garage and very well maintained.

The tires have approximately 60% of the tread left.  They are Goodyear Wranglers.

All of the power train parts are original and are in good working order and have been serviced and well maintained or have been replaced as needed. 

It does have a new windshield.   

It starts, runs, drives and stops very well.  It has a slight wandering issue in steering if on a very uneven road.  The AC works, but is not ice cold, so probably needs a little Freon.  We don't need AC here in Wyoming.  The rear AC unit fan rattles a little when it is running. The right rear door lock sticks a little, you just have to click the lock button a couple of times.  The left rear seat belt has been replaced at sometime, but with a grey one and it does not roll up right.  It does have an under the dash stereo CD player installed that works great even though the antenna is broken off.  The factory stereo is still in the dash, but is not hooked up.  The front seat cloth upholstery is starting to separate a little at the pleats in the center of bottom cushion.

I have tried to list all of the little flaws.  It is a very nice classic body style older Suburban that runs and drives very nice and is quite dependable.  Again, it is a 4 wheel drive.  I wouldn't hesitate to take a trip in it anywhere. I believe it is a very trust worthy vehicle with a classy looking color and the more unique GMC look.

I do have some contacts for shipping and will assist in anyway I can with them.  If you aren't able to pick up immediately, I can store the truck inside my garage for a little while (with prior arrangements). 

I can email more pics if needed.

If you have any question feel free to call Jon at (361) 960-1650 or send an email.

I do reserve the right to end this auction early since I do have the truck for sale locally.

If you have zero Ebay transactions, please contact me before bidding or your bid may be rejected.

Thanks for looking and bid with confidence.

GM delivers best Q3 sales since 1980, 2.4M vehicles sold

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 13:33:00 EST

People are a weird sort. Even after registering over 70 recalls through the first three-quarters of 2014, General Motors saw its best Q3 results since Jimmy Carter was in the White House, registering over 2.4 million global sales between June and September on the back of strong results in the US and China.
US sales were marshaled by good results for GM's pickups, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, which bumped the manufacturer's truck market share to 35.6 percent, up nearly three points from Q1 2014. Buick has seen healthy growth as well, with the Encore dominating its segment for the sixth month running.
It was China, though, that really bolstered GM's sales, as the company's efforts to top last year's record-setting 3.16 million units continued apace. Small SUV sales saw massive growth, with Encore, Chevrolet Trax and Captiva figures jumping 90 percent in Q3. Brand-wise, Chevrolet, Cadillac and Buick all saw sales gains in the PRC, with each recording double-digit year-over-year jumps. Cadillac sales alone were up 63 percent compared to the first nine months of 2013.

GM recalling 118K Colorado, Canyon pickups over missing hood latches

Thu, 20 Dec 2012 11:27:00 EST

General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.

GM planning to put its fullsize pickups on a big diet, too

Fri, 19 Jul 2013 14:01:00 EST

General Motors is just coming off a complete redesign of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra for 2014, but in the US fullsize truck market, there is no rest for the weary. According to Reuters, plans are already unfurling for both trucks to drop pounds from their curb weight over the next few years, but this will unlikely be able to keep pace with the 700-pound diet targeted for the next-generation Ford F-150, a truck expected to debut late next year.
The biggest weight reduction for these trucks might not be available until the next full redesign, which will likely happen around 2019, but the article says that smaller updates could shave pounds in the meantime. Two examples given include an "aluminum-intensive" version of the Silverado that could shed 250 pounds and debut around the same time as the lighter-weight, aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford, and there is also talk of reducing weight for driveline components such as axles and driveshafts. These changes are all part of an attempt to meet strict new fuel economy standards coming in 2017, targets which will get even tougher in 2025.
