1979 Chevrolet Suburban K20 Silverado 3/4 ton 4x4 400 V8 AT PS PB A/C 4wd 6.6L

Trim: Silverado Trailering Special
Exterior Color: Midnight Black, Interior: Tan
Engine: 6.6L 400 Cu In V8
Drivetrain: 4WD, Automatic
Mileage: 168,537
VIN: Unknown
Location: Greenback, Tennessee, USA (Ebay)
Date: Dec 26, 2016

Description: This 1979 Chevrolet Suburban K20 3/4 ton 4 wheel drive was ordered with the 400c.i. 6.6l small block(1LF4), Automatic Transmission(1MX1), Tinted Glass(1AO1), Trailering Special Package(1Z82) It has over 30 options including 40 gallon fuel tank and skid plate, tinted glass, cruise control, tilt column, intermittent wipers, heavy duty brakes, rear A/C, oil cooler and h/duty trans cooler. I have owned/ maintained this vehicle for several years and have made several improvements; new windshield, brakes, brake lines, fuel lines and sending unit, fuel pump, rebuilt carburetor, radiator, fan clutch, timing chain, oil pump, starter, battery, u-joints, axle bearings and seals, carpet and some upholstery. I'm not big on GM Trucks but this beast was the most solid rust free example I've ever encountered I sold two personal vehicles so I could have it and use it. When i purchased it the engine was recently rebuilt and the odometer was reading 94,000 so the engine has around 70-80,000 miles on it. I replaced the timing chain and oil pump when it hit 50,000. The transmission and transfer case oil was changed about 20,000 miles ago. The 4 wheel drive works great and a PO added the lockout hubs and conversion kit to the transfer case. I replaced the factory instrument cluster with a Tachometer/ Vacuum gauge unit. Still have the Original Unit. Mechanical issues: Cruise Control works intermittently. The truck has 4.10 gears and could really use an Overdrive Transmission, which I have to go with the truck. It is an 89 K case 700R4 with 241 transfer case and driveshafts. Needs new A/C Compressor. Exterior issues: Paint isnt perfect but it looks decent and shines on a very straight solid body, drive it or polish it. I have a roof rack, strips, and rear spoiler if purchaser desires them. Interior issues: seat belt plastic shields broken, front headliner starting to release, passenger sun visor material is cracked.
