Description: Great running mostly original Suburban. I purchased from original owner a year ago who took meticulous care of it. He only used the Suburban in the summer months and stored it away for the winter, covered, in a heated garage. My wife and kids have enjoyed it but I have a new car on the way and something has to go. The Suburban drives great and has had some upgrades over the years such as a repaint in the 1980's (which has held up great), a sunroof, updated cold AC, and some other items as well. The pics of the underneath are not of crud or rust but of undercoating, it was undercoated when new. Asking price was $6500 on July 15, 2017
