Woody Suburbans were built on commercial 1/2 ton chassis, while the woody wagons were built on passenger chassis.

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.
