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.

With the market for pickup trucks at its best since before the recession, General Motors can't afford any hiccups with the launch of its new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra twins, but it sounds like the popularity of V8-powered trucks is causing some supply-chain issues. Bloomberg reports that GM is experiencing a shortage of 5.3-liter V8 engines because an unnamed parts supplier has been unable to keep up with demand. This is leading GM to restrict the number of V8 Silverado and Sierra trucks that Chevrolet and GMC dealers are allowed to order.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 13:02:00 EST
Although it's unclear how long it will take to resolve the parts shortage, GM doesn't have much time to sort it out, as a new Ford F-150 looms on the horizon. At launch, GM's fullsize trucks were offered only with a base 4.3-liter V6 and the 5.3-liter V8, but a burlier 6.2-liter V8 will be available soon. Interestingly, at least at the moment, GM truck buyers don't seem as willing to downsize to V6 power as buyers of the F-150, which gets some 42-percent of its sales from trucks equipped with its EcoBoost V6 engine (not including the normally aspirated base V6).
Working out the kinks in the Silverado and Sierra's supply chain couldn't be more important to the health of the company. Full-size pickups are a huge profit driver - in 2012, the trucks were said to make up about two-third of GM's total profits.
American servicemen and women interested in a new vehicle from Chevrolet, Buick or GMC now have a bit more incentive to head down to their local dealer, as General Motors has announced plans to improve its military discount program.
Wed, 03 Sep 2014 14:30:00 EST
The new GM Military Discount Program offers eligible consumers a new Chevy, Buick or GMC at invoice pricing, which in some cases can take very large chunks out of a car's retail price. When factored in with other incentives, most of which are available with the Military Discount, the bargains are thick on the ground for members of the US armed forces.
GM's Retail Sales and Marketing Support general manager, Chuck Thomson, said, "GM has long supported the military and military families, and we hope this simplified and enhanced discount will show our appreciation for their service and help make it easier for them to own one of our great new vehicles." The program is open to all active duty and reserve members in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard and Coast Guard, as well as veterans that have been out of the service for less than a year. Military retirees and their spouses are also eligible for the discount.
While the news of today is destined to be dominated by a certain plucky Japanese roadster, props to Chevrolet and GMC for announcing its own significant bit of news about their newest pickup twins, the midsize Colorado and Canyon. The two GM-owned brands announced that the twins' 3.6-liter V6 will return up to 26 miles per gallon on the freeway.
To get such efficiency from the 305-horsepower mill, you'll need to live without four-wheel drive and be okay with a max city fuel economy of 18 mpg. The combined rating for the 2WD model sits at 21 mpg. Adding four-wheel drive drops the city and combined ratings by one mpg, while the highway rating dips from 26 to 24 mpg.
As for the twins' eagerly anticipated 2.8-liter diesel engine, it's destined for model year 2016, meaning we've got a ways to go before its efficiency and output are certified.
