Picked up a 72 3/4 4x4 Burb

Spotted this guy for sale about 30 minutes from me. Unfortunately I was back East for work and had to buy it in the blind. I was very happy with it once I picked it up. I think they only made 1379 3/4 4X4 Suburban’s in 1972. This one seems to have had some work done 15-20 years ago. It runs and drives. Has a bad exhaust leak and the engine seems weak. SPID is intact, stock radio hole and roof and cowl are solid which are all requirements for me. I have a set of steel 8 lug wheels and 3/4 ton hubcaps in my parts stash which will be going on first. Next on the list is some window regulator and door latch work. Going with a 15” stock blue steering wheel and a few other clean up items for the interior. Pulling the window tint off ASAP as well. Finally I’m going to try and track down a 71-72 350 in good running shape for it that I can detail to stock looking condition.

Cool find. I know you'll do it right. I might have a few burb things I wont be using for my panel. Shoot me a text if you think of something you need.

Congratulations! Were you looking for a blue one or did it just turn out that way?
Looking forward to more on it.

Great find! Same color comb I want to do on my 70. Barn doors or hatch?

I was not looking for a Blue one in particular. I'm sure glad that 68 sold before I found this one. This one ended up being a much better deal in my opinion.

If you are going to go white steel with these I have a set of the Ford 8 luggers that are popular. I think 16x7 (Ill have to look at em).

Not sure what you mean by engine seems weak. I would do a compression and vacuum check on it first thing. That would tell a lot on engine condition. I would do some checking before I replaced it. Could be bad plugs, ignition problems, or fuel problems. My Red/White '71 Chevy pickup didn't seem to have much power when I first got it and I finally traced it down to the fuel sock on the in tank pickup tube. Replaced that and blew out the fuel lines and it ran great after that.

Just some thoughts.

Re: Picked up a 72 3/4 4x4 Burb

Had a major snag being gone for work most of this year so far. Got home last week and have been hitting it pretty hard. Picked up all my goodies from the powder coated. Before I left for work, I had finished the front suspension for the most part. Redhead steering box and Rightway springs with an added leaf pack. Hoping to have it running and driving in the next few weeks. I decided to replace the engine wiring harness so, I’m waiting on that now.

Re: Picked up a 72 3/4 4x4 Burb

I installed steel 8 lug wheels powder coated white and some 3/4 hubcaps I had laying around. Looks much better. I also bought new bumpers, carpet and a stock style 15” steering wheel.

Could you post a pic of the 15'' wheel installed? What is your impression of it? does it feel good quality?

Re: Picked up a 72 3/4 4x4 Burb

Thanks guys and thanks Mark for all the parts you’ve helped me out with. I’m having the tailgate painted to match and when I decide to do new tires, I’ll powder coat the wheels you gave me so, I can get rid of the 16.5’s. I really like the steering wheel. I have always ran Comfort Grips in all my rides from my Chevelle to my 78 Jimmy I had. These just feel better and not as skinny. Quality is impressive. Not the best picture of the steering wheel but, it’s the only one on my phone.
