Sellers original description:
1972 Chevrolet 3/4 ton 4x4 Suburban. This classic truck is one of only 879 3/4 ton 4x4 Suburbans built with the clamshell doors in 1972. This vehicle was frame off rotisserie restored 5 years ago and has been daily driven since. Very,very reliable. This truck has a 402 big block motor a 700R4 overdrive transmission and a 4.10 gear ratio. The rear end is factory equipped with a No Spin differential. The original owners manual with the Idento-plate is in the glove box along with the No Spin manual. It also has all the usual power options,power steering,power disc brakes and heavy duty cooling system. The truck has been repainted in the original Medium Olive inside and out. The Toyo A/T tires only have about 3000 miles on the and they are mounted on powder coated 16 inch stock style wheels and finished with stock hubcaps. This truck was upgraded with a stock style tachometer and rear heat under the middle seat. It originally had 2 bench seats but has been further upgraded with the factory 3 bench option. The original restored 2nd bench is included in the sale as is a baby seat recovered to match the original green and black houndstooth seat skins.The body of the truck has been Rhino lined below the lower body line for chip resistance. Additionally the Suburban has been upgraded with front and rear air conditioning. The system is complete and only needs charging. This upgrade was done using all factory parts, only new hoses were added. Front and rear air was a one year option for the three door Suburban. Three CDs with over 800 pictures of the restoration process will also be given to the winning bidder. There are a couple of flaws in the paint as would be expected on a daily driven truck. There is also a hidden Custom Autosound AM/FM/CD stereo under the front seat but the controller and remote are pretty worn out. There are two kick panel speakers and two 6x9s in boxes in the back. The boxes have been covered in matching green vinyl. The original AM radio is still in the dash and it works. This will make a great show truck or family hauler.
