Re: Suburban and panel finds

1971 Chevrolet K20 3 door Suburban

Phoenix $35k

This is a 1 owner for 50 years 1971 K20 Suburban 3 dr Super Wagon. Bought new at Ray Korte Chevrolet in Scottsdale. Its 1 of 353 3/4 ton K20s with the clamshell doors built in 71. One of 1232 3/4 ton 4wd with tailgate ever built. However its probably more like 1 of 1 or 1of 5 as this rig has some super rare options like cruise control, Rear AC system, and 9 passenger seating. Still has its original upholstery! It also has the super rare factory Draw tite tow package that includes a 45 gallon baffled fuel tank. Yeah thats right 45 gallons. Tank is in perfect clean condtion. Has the green tinted glass and many other options.....

The baby blue kind of kills it to me. Maybe if some trim broke the bottom white it might look better....

agree, very nice but way too rich for my blood

even if I trade both of my K burbs and a longhorn I'd still be $20k short

And to circle back to this question comes the 1 owner K with production number claims about clamshells on K burbans. Weird coincidence huh

What's this claim, I'm curious? I've never seen a factory K 67-72 anything with clam shell mounts from the factory. Maybe a modified after production but never OEM. That ochre burb is definitely nice but those are Cali prices and they are over rated.

This is his claim:

Which they might of got here:
https://www.67-72chevytrucks.com/vbo...d.php?t=575238

I quit his reading his monolog after this sentence. "It drives very nicely on the freeway cruising at 75 no problem with 4:10 gears and larger tires. It can accept much larger tires if you like. Drives like a car that has never been apart.......

Yeah right!

Re: Suburban and panel finds

I felt like I needed a shower after reading all that B.S.! The door panels are a bit cheesy too.

well it was 1 owner for 50 years - so 2nd owner (see 'flipper' in webster's) had to have it at least a week to write all that crap up

and I'll bet a steak dinner it still has the original owner's name on the title too

but hey, I don't write 'em - I just post 'em.. cheers!

I agree, I think trim would make all the difference in the world. The more the better....

Hi All,

Long time reader on here, just paid for the membership as it's been an incredible resource as I look for a k series driver to use as a family cruiser. Thanks everyone for sharing their knowledge.

I've actually been looking at the one on bat. I know it's a long shot but has anyone seen it in person or have any info on it's condition? Looks like a semi solid driver that I would change the rear doors to a hatch and look for some bench seats to replace the current ones.

Lastly what's your take on the values on bat?

Thanks

Re: Suburban and panel finds

I don't believe there are any deals to be had on BAT. Occasionally something will be bought at reasonable price if the market is flooded with that type of vehicle.
So to answer your question my opinion is the prices are high. That being said if your buying over long distance the photographs are usually plentiful and the buyers responsive. So the premium may be worthwhile.

Great to know, thank you. Turns out I’m still on the hunt for a k series. Thank you for continually posting them up and for the info.

Mrs. Bee was in for $25k but plastic door panels, cut dash and doors, and not my year stopped me at the same mark as the missus..

if it had been a 71 I could have looked past those imperfections and it would probably be sitting in my driveway now

Plastic door panels mean best year ever. Don't hate, they had aluminum inserts.
