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.

Weekly Recap: Auto execs face life in prison for recall delays under proposed legislation

Sat, 09 Aug 2014 12:00:00 EST



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.

GM pushing back on proposed pickup and SUV brake recall [w/poll]

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 08:30:00 EST

Through the first six months of 2014, General Motors has recalled 29 million cars and trucks in 54 different actions. If your author's notoriously sketchy math is correct, that'd work out to one recall every 3.5 days (as of this writing). GM is actively fighting to make sure there isn't a 55th recall, though.
Safety critics, including perennial nemesis Clarence Ditlow of the Center for Auto Safety, are calling on GM to recall a further six million pickup trucks and SUVs in northerly climes due to corroding brake lines caused by the use of road salt. There is a catch, here, though ­- the vehicles in question are over 10 years old, and include the 1999 to 2003 Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban and GMC Sierra, as well as the 2000 to 2003 Tahoe and Yukon (shown above).
GM issued the following statement on the matter, obtained by CNN Money:

2014 Chevy Silverado High Country spied wearing trappings of new luxury trim

Wed, 03 Apr 2013 13:30:00 EST

Spy photographers have spotted the new Chevrolet Silverado High Country and GMC Sierra Denali out on public streets for a little testing. From the looks of things, the Silverado will receive a much-differentiated front fascia along with special badges and those honking 20-inch chrome wheels. Expect to find a more posh interior as well. Likewise, the Sierra Denali will wear a tweaked nose with the familiar Denali bling. The one of the GMC trucks spotted here rolls on 21-inch gunmetal wheels instead of the 20-inch chrome pieces of the High Country.
Word has it both trucks will go on sale after the Texas State Fair this summer. While General Motors hasn't said for certain what we can expect to find under the hood, we'd be surprised to see anything outside of the range of engines found in the standard Silverado and Sierra models. That means buyers should be able to get their hands on the efficient, 23-miles per gallon 5.3-liter V8.
