Texas Suburban

My Son in Law had been looking for a 71-72 Suburban for a while. He found one in San Angelo, TX and a high school buddy and I went down a picked it up this week. Original big block 1/2 ton with rear air. It matches his 2wd Blazer.

Re: Texas Suburban

That's sweet. What does something like that cost anymore? I haven't been looking at subs much but considering it...

Also, is it a high hump or low hump? I've heard rumor that big block subs had TH350 and low hump possibly. Or maybe even with the TH400?

Re: Texas Suburban

It's a high hump with a 400 turbo.

Like everything 67-72, the price is going up every day.

Re: Texas Suburban

Looks like a great Burb. Was it on Craigslist, EBay, a word of mouth or friend of a friend deal. I'm always curious as how someone came across their truck. That's why I started the "Where/How did you find your truck" thread..

He found it on Craigslist. I will add it to your thread as soon as I get time.
I should add some more to your thread also. I think I have one or two on there.

We will touch up what we have absolutely have to, sort the trim out,new Wheels, lower it and drive it.

It will sit about like the Blazer when it's finished.

Great find. It was nice you went down to bring it home. Hope the son in law appreciates that support.

Re: Texas Suburban

He just called and said the timing gear is stripped.

I can see a 454 is this Burbs future.

Yeah, last I recalled you were up in Montana or Wyoming in a blizzard. Hmmm...

Stripped timing gear...how about a 5.3, 6.0 or a 6.2 swap on the new burb?

Re: Texas Suburban

We talked briefly about an LS swap. We just sold a company truck with an 8.1 engine.
