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.

Big And Boxy Might Be Best

As immense fans of the Back to the Future trilogy, we sometimes like to envision an alternate timeline in which General Motors had killed off GMC and kept Pontiac instead. The G8 GXP would still be on the road handily beating German sport sedans costing twice as much, while the lowly G3 would morph into a true subcompact-killer based on what is now the Chevrolet Sonic RS. While we're at it, let's go ahead and imagine the G6 has become the best-selling car in the US and the Torrent crossover is selling 20,000+ units per month. Far-fetched, we know.
The thing is, these fanciful statements would have to be true to make the case against keeping GMC. Pontiac may have offered more excitement than GMC, but money talks, and a full line of trucks, crossovers and SUVs have made a lot more money for GM than the arrowhead brand ever did. How much? As we learned last month, about two-thirds of GM's global profits came from its fullsize trucks, and GMC's trucks typically have thicker margins than their Chevrolet counterparts.
Forget about the so-called sporty Chevrolet Silverado Rally Edition. If you want a General Motors pickup with some added style, this one looks like a more cohesive, well-done package to our eyes (though it's also not "sporty," despite GM using that term over and over again). It's called the GMC Sierra Elevation Edition, and it hits dealerships later this year.

For its more stylish truck, GMC has fitted the 2015 Sierra Double Cab with a body-colored grille surround, door handles, mirror caps, side moldings and bumpers. The truck also rides on black 20-inch aluminum wheels.
The Elevation Edition, which GMC contends qualifies as a sport truck, comes standard with the Sierra's 285-horsepower, 4.3-liter V6, though buyers can opt for the more powerful 5.3-liter V8 with 355 hp. Other standard goodies include OnStar with 4G LTE connectivity and Bluetooth, all housed in the 4.2-inch Intellilink color display.
General Motors isn't the first automaker to deliver in-car Internet access, but a proposed plan announced today could make the technology more widespread than any of its competitors have offered. By the 2015 model year, most Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac and GMC products in the US and Canada will offer 4G LTE mobile broadband access. Initially, GM will just be pairing with AT&T to deliver this service, but additional carriers will be revealed in the future.
Current in-car Wi-Fi hot spots are limited to 3G, but GM says that 4G LTE is 10 times faster than 3G service and will allow for full Internet access, including streaming video for entertainment as well as services like real-time traffic updates and navigation driving directions. There is also no need for a paired smartphone with this new system, which should make it easier to use, and GM and AT&T will also be working together to develop new apps for customers.
Buyers can expect to start seeing 4G LTE in their cars starting next year, and GM is already planning to expand the service to other global markets as well. All of the information from GM's announcement is posted in a press release below.
