RARE 1961 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN, V-8, 700R transmission, 3.08 Rear, Vintage Air
Bid on this vehicle at Bid.WheelerAuctionGroup.com
The year was 1961, the second year of the move by Chevrolet to produce the angular “high boy” look more appropriate for the hip 60's. Along with the new look were options and features that moved the Chevy Utility lines into step with the growing mainstream. As part of the expansion the now-familiar C designation was instituted for 4x2. This model has the upper and lower tailgate option making it very easy to load and unload.
This model shows the hood “eyebrows” only used on the 1960 and 1961 versions. This model will seat 5 with the comfort minivan seats (buckets in the front and bench in the rear). The back has plenty of room for luggage or anything else one might want to carry (the previous owner camped in it and laid a mattress out in the back). There's a full set of Goodyear Wrangler RT/5's with plenty of tread on them. The spare appears to be brand new. Also included are 2 hitches, a regular one and a drop hitch.
There is little to no rust on the vehicle. The previous owner showed me where a small section of the rear drivers side wheel well was patched but if he hadn't pointed it out I never would have seen it. The paint is ok and it will get by but at some point if it is a keeper for you, you will want to give it a new paint job. There are a couple of blemishes on the hood on the driver's side as you can see in the pictures. The chrome front and rear bumpers are in good shape. Overall the suburban is in good condition and most certainly would serve well as a daily driver. It drives down the road nicely with a stock 305 V8 matched with a 700R overdrive transmission and a 3.08 rear. Its got a EDELBROCK Performer Intake, HOLLEY Street Avenger 670 CFM Carb, 1 5/8 Headers w/ dual exhaust, Aluminum radiator, SUMMIT 1 Wire Alternator, Chrome Valve Covers & Air Filter.
SERIOUSLY….HOW COOL IS THIS S.C. SIDE OF THE ROAD FIND !!!!!!
