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.

Following last week's mild uproar after it was discovered that Ford and General Motors were removing some optional parts from their pickups to lower the curb weight and consequently increase the maximum payload, GM has come out and committed to a base curb weight for its upcoming Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon compact trucks (although it has yet to publish them) and its current Silverado and Sierra. The company will do the same for its heavy duty offerings, although those numbers have not been finalized yet.

"This will make our curb weight and payload specs more consistent with those of most other truck makers, making it easier for customers to compare vehicles," GM spokesman Tom Wilkinson told Autoblog in an emailed statement.
As GM notes - and as every manufacturer has noted since this story broke - customers still shouldn't take max payload ratings as gospel. Instead, they should refer to their truck's Tire and Load Label, like the one shown at the inset, which will offer detailed information on max payload, specific to their truck.
Cadillac and Buick have taken the trophies in J.D. Power's latest Customer Service Index Study examining satisfaction with dealer service. Surveying more than 90,000 owners and lessees of 2009-2013 model-year cars, the study found that those with pre-paid maintenance packages were ten percent more likely to buy their next car from the same brand.

Dealer satisfaction scores have improved overall, Cadillac nabbed the luxury segment ahead of Audi and Lexus, taking the crown that Lexus held last year. Buick keeps the mass-market dealer satisfaction win in the family, finishing ahead of Volkswagen and last year's winner GMC. The study also found that service department use of tablets increased customer satisfaction, as did "best practices" like "providing helpful advice." Who knew?
You can find details on those and more findings in the press release below.
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.
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.
