Just so you don't keep looking forever, BB and 4 wheel drive didn't come together from the factory in 67-72 (in anything, not just 'burbs). If you find a BB four wheel drive, it has either been converted to a big block, or converted from two wheel drive.

BB and 4x4 in a Burb was not available till the 90's. You could get a BB nd 4x4 in a truck around 77 when the D60 front started being used.

re: oops forgot 1

The front seats are from a 2001 Tahoe. The rear seats are from a 2002 Chevy Venture mini-van.

Hmmm I'll have to look for the venture van. I like those and I'll need some seats soon if I get this burb I got my eye on.
Thanks for the quick reply.

Venture seats

I got the seats on ebay, from a van conversion place in Indiana...$40 each and shipping for 5 was $150. I can get the name of the company, if you're interested.

I got the rear seats from Designer Seat Works, in Tempe, AZ (not Indiana, oops) They have a web site at www.seatworks.com. They have a lot of 'take outs' from van and truck conversions. Pretty good guys to work with. The front seat I got on e-bay. There are lots of seat options out on e-bay.

Folding seat

Actually, all of the rear seats fold like the middle one. There is enough room to step up, next to the seat near the door, so that if it is folded down it's an easy leg swing to get in back...especially for kids...or you can crawl over any of them. :-)
