From Eric :

        Here is a picture of my 1957 Chevy Suburban. I have owned this Chevy Task Force Suburban for about five years. It's been sitting in a corner of the garage, ever since (as you can see in the picture!).

        A friend is currently building an all new chassis with air ride and 4 wheel disc brakes. I am installing a 5.3 GM motor with a 4L60E transmission. I'll also add air conditioning and heat.

        This 'Burb started out as a military vehicle. The original frame and engine are M.I.A. as well as any seats or glass.

        I have wanted one of these ever since I can remember. This one is a very straight, low mileage, pretty rust free body.

        Before I found this Suburban, I owned a 1955.2 with a '58/'59 Fleetside bed (in the Gallery). It had a camaro clip and rear end, 454 with 700r4, and vintage air. The truck was great but once I found the Suburban, I got rid of the '55. is the most informative site in regards to 55-59 General Motors trucks!


        Gosh, once Eric pulls her out of the garage, we'll have to get some more pictures! And updates! ~ Editor
