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.

The stiff punishments are part of broader transportation legislation, but clearly McCaskill has automakers in her sights.
Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill threw down the gauntlet this week, proposing a bill that could send auto executives to prison for life if they were found to have delayed a recall. She also wants to eliminate the limit for fines for auto safety violations, which are currently capped at $35 million.
General Motors is recalling 843 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Crew Cab pickups, due to a fault with the vehicle's airbags. According to GM, the airbags may not inflate properly in the event of a crash. There haven't been any crashes or injuries associated with this recall, which is always good. Naturally, repairs will be free of charge, and GM will begin contacting affected owners soon.

GM has a lot hanging on the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. Not only is it banking over $12,000 per vehicle on these trucks, as reported by Automotive News, but GM is counting on the Sierra and Silverado to take the fight to cross-town rivals Ford and Ram. The F-150 and Ram 1500 have been on a tear over the past few years, with fresh updates, advanced powertrains, and plenty of solid press while the GM trucks have been waiting for the 2014-model-year upgrades.
It's still entirely too early to judge the Sierra and Silverado, particularly as those 843 recalled trucks make up barely two percent of the over 40,000 units moved so far. But, as AN rightly states, these trucks are the most important vehicles to come out of GM since bankruptcy, with about 60 percent of global profits relating to pickups and SUVs. Starting an introduction of such a big product with a recall, however small, is not the preferred way to do things.
General Motors' Fleet Order Guide system is often the canary in the coal mine for interesting changes on new models. The recent guide for the 2015 Corvette unveiled all sorts of changes that weren't yet known about the sports car. Now, it's time for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon to take their bow in the spotlight, and they look worth the wait. The new midsize trucks are getting a touch more power than first thought, as well as some very nice features.
Extended Cab models of both trucks come standard with a 2.5-liter, direct-injected four-cylinder rated at 200 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and 191 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm. That's a bit more than the 193 hp and 184 lb-ft originally reported for the duo. The standard transmission for the extended trucks is a six-speed manual, but the Work Truck trim is also available with an optional six-speed automatic. Towing for the four-cylinder is rated at 3,500 pounds.
Crew Cab models come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 with 305 hp at 6,800 rpm and 269 lb-ft of torque at 4,300 rpm, with a six-speed automatic. That's also somewhat different than the originally reported rating of 302 hp and 270 lb-ft. Towing for the V6 is rated at 7,000 pounds.
