    Planning a clean up, has front floor issues. Its mostly original, 6 cyl. with
    3spd. maybe trying to crank the engine & see if it will run. Just picked it
    up yesterday. I'll be posting the progress as I move forward. Maybe satin
    black or satin green with some tan steelies, lowered. It will certainly be a
    driver!! Thanks, for any input! :D

    Looks great. I have a 50 chevy truck ALL original
    I am down on the south side of GA ( by JAX FL ) and have some intakes, exhaust and other engine parts for the 235 inline if you intend to use it.
    Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

    I like it, it is near the same era of suburbans I am looking at. Is the engine still in yours?

    Black primer and red wheels, no way! That has been done way to much already, go a different route and stand out. Satin paint is fine but dont do the primer thing.

    The engine is there, looks to be original & never been removed. The
    trans was in the back laying on the floor. Its pretty solid except the front
    floors. I just came in from cleaning out the inside. still has the little short
    passenger seat that folds forward to access the rear area. I think this is
    going to be a fun project!!!!:D

    Cool project! Good friend and member Butcherted has a Burb with the clam shell rear doors. Except for the rusty brake parts and wheels that needed replaced, it was in great shape. They just make a radical push truck or great party wagon for your friends.

    Keep us posted with your progress please!
