1988 Chevrolet Silverado Suburban


I spotted a "white" Square Body Sub sitting in Clinton for sale on Tuesday .   

I stopped, and looked and could not believe the condition of this 1988 Suburban   sign says 1 owner  82,000 km. I texted wife and sent photo. 

She, being the bold one, called and the seller says it was his grandfathers . never winter driven . sat in heated garage in Exeter, south of us asking 8800.00 .   

I stopped after work and looked underneath  Amazing.  a light coat of clear oil covers a frame with factory markings and rockers and floors to die for...

350 TBI a/c pw pl tilt cruise 9 pass  RED cloth interior    My wife called and said she wanted to buy it for her husband and what was the best price .  6500.00 cash he says .   she has appointment tomorrow to see .     

Whats a 29 year old truck worth ?     

p.s.  She told me I could not buy a old car :(    and now she thinks I should have a old truck ?   

 

I have never posted sideways photos before . They are all correct in my folder

I'd pull the trigger at $6,500. We discussed this when it was at $9,900. He must want it sold before snow. It looks better in your photos than the ones we viewed before.

Interesting .   I had never seen or heard of it before Tuesday .    too busy I guess .  

I wonder if a 454 would fit in it ?     

MY 99 step side is one of the nicest in Ontario, but no room in it for my handicapped boys (men) and my dog

Yes. LS7 is better. I have 2 e- mails saying let me know if you want to sell, and 1 contact on my stepside. And my boss wants to set Body on a Duramax chassis. Thanks Ray for confirming 454 will fit. I do have 427 emblems

I did miss the ad    but did see it (the truck)   My wife met with owner today and bought it!    I never met the seller  She had him deliver car and coming in morning with ownership and all paperwork including bill of sale .  Amazing truck .  runs like new  smells like new   Interior is gorgeous .  Power windows (front and rear) Power locks . Tilt cruise . amfm CASSETTE
She bought me a 95 Z28 conv for our 30th anniversary and a 2500HD (we still love) for our 40 th anniverary and now this Old "Gold" Suburban for our 50th .   Seller inherited from 2nd wifes grand father  He says never seen rain (lol)   I love the white and red guts and no roof rack   Needs new tires and red stripes removed    Thanks for the encouragement   She bought it for 6500.00 cash, and I do mean cash .

Turns out truck was owned by a long time customer of mine. He died in Aug. daughters husband was not a car guy. He wanted it gone. Gave Barbara the original bill of sale and didn't want the plates or grandfathers stuff in it. Barb is a good negotiator. 50 years is Gold so she bought me "old gold ". Lol. 30 over 454 should make it scoot
