1950 Chevy Suburban
From Tim :
I always wanted a Panel or Suburban. So when I found this classic 1950 Chevy Suburban on Craigslist in Phoenix about two years ago, I couldn't wait to fly down and check it out in person.
My plans were always to have a completely original Suburban. When I got down to Phoenix and saw it had airbags and a 1970's 250 six cylinder, I was a bit disappointed -- but I knew I could make most of the changes back to stock.
It had been slammed, had no wiring and you couldn't drive it over 20 mph.
Then my boys flew up from California and re-wired the 'Burb from stem to stern. Then we replaced the brakes with all original parts, new gauges, and tires. We had my 83 year old Dad come over and we filled in all the unnecessary holes in the firewall and cleaned that up.
The first thing I did was to replace the suspension back to stock and I think it rides just fine.
Now I've gotta make time to put the seats in. I just had them reupholstered, but they're just lying on the garage floor taking up space.
The 'Burb now drives great. I've only driven it a handful of miles but I sure love it. I found a heater for it and just had it recored so the projects never end. I think someday it'll get done?
