Below are Chevy and GMC Suburbans between 1973 and 1991 (7th Generation) with American Truck and Van Conversion Packages installed.
1989 GMC Suburban American Truck and Van Conversion
Description: GMC Suburban 2500 4x4 Conversion with raised roof. One of a kind in its day with raised roof conversion. 3/4 ton 4x4 GMC suburban. Just smogged
and licensed with new BF Goodrich All Terrains (33x12.50x16.5). This conversion was completed by American Truck and Van Conversion from Bakersfield, CA by original owner. I
was told when I bought this that actor Patrick Duffy (who starred in tv show Dallas) was original owner but this can't be verified as accurate. I do have paper work on this
conversion stating his name. I am the second owner since 1993. New torque convertor, catalytic convertor, and computer. This is set up for California smog. Needs paint and
some interior work (like driver seat torn at seems and material around rear air housing needs to be restretched. Has older tv (no longer works) cobra CB radio, vcr, and
separate CD player which no longer works. New Kenwood stereo with CD was installed. Was going to install new speaker system but never got to it, so it does need new
speakers. Had a total of 8 speakers with 4 running the tv but these no longer work since the original radio was removed. Has 6 headphone jacks for radio and tv but
system is out of date so would have to be upgraded by audio professional. Wood trim everywhere with mood lighting also has tray tables behind front captain chairs.
VCR is installed where spare tire originally went. This has rear window with tailgate and not barn doors. Truck has sat in shop for 3 years with non-op due to torque
convertor going out. Just now replaced and Turbo 400 transmission works like new. Has front and rear receiver hitch with plug sockets for portable wench which we do
not have. There is an ice chest under front middle seat with drain as well as three 12 volt plugs for second and third row seating and one behind third seat. 2 storage
compartments in rear and 2 above front seats. 4 reading lamps for second and third row seating. Does smoke slightly on startup due to possible bad valve stem seals
otherwise good running 350 engine. Muffler is older Flowmaster. Did compression check and everything was normal. Passed smog on 1st try. Truck has been in California
its whole life and has never been off road since we've owned it. Only used for family vehicle. Has second battery box to power the winch if one is added.
