For Sale: 1989 Chevrolet V1500 Suburban
The interior is in great shape for a 25 year old truck. No major stains on seats on all three rows. The rug has stains as expected for an original 25 year old rug. The headliner is not in place as I tore it out to add the custom roof rack and heavy duty rf cable for CB...My plan was to dynamat the roof interior but I never got around to it. Doesn't effect cooling or sound as I think the added Raptor liner on roof covered this concern.
I replaced two of the five window motors. I was going to replace the rear motor but when I took it apart I greased it up and it works perfectly. You can open it from the back with key or from the dashboard factory switch.
I replaced the entire a/c system minus the hard lines to rear system and squirrel cage (neither of which any aftermarkets are made). The a/c blows cold! The heat blows hot!
I put a new radiator in, new belt, new idler arm, new optima yellow top battery, new k&n air filter, new warn premium locking hubs, new universal, new hooker headers, new plugs, new nfab side steps, new mirrors (factory chrome also included), new steering wheel (factory wheel included), new KC daylighters. KC's are connected to high beams. There is a separate toggle switch for small egg shaped 50 watt running lights, and another switch for the five fog lights on the roof rack. The roof rack features four holders. I usually keep axe and shovel on one side and fishing rods on other side. It is very convenient for putting camping gear up top. The rack came in brushed aluminum. I sanded, primed, and painted it with textured paint but it has peeled off in a few spots and if this bothers you ...you can unbolt the rack and repaint it but it never bothered me so I did not do so.
The transfer case is in proper working order. This truck runs strong and does not burn a drop of oil. As you know with these old trucks the speedometer may have turned over...but from the looks of the interior and the fact that it doesn't burn oil it very well could be a true 86,000 mile reading. The good news is that a few months ago the transmission went out. Rather than rebuild it I purchased a new one from advance auto parts with a three year 36,000 mile warranty. This cost me 1,800.00 with installation. The tires are around four years old and they have over half the tread left on them as I put approx 5,000 miles per year on my vehicles. They are 33x15. The lift appears to be a 4 or 6" lift. It was already in place when I purchased truck. I bought four new shocks around 8 months ago.
Around 10,000 miles ago I redid the rear drum brakes and I added new braided russel lines on all four corners.
A few months back I painted the sides of the truck olive drab flat as I was getting tired of the all black look. It makes the truck look much nicer and more military now than SWAT before. All of the parts that I have replaced on this truck have been done so over the past two years. All "kinks" are worked out. This is a driving truck. You can drive her across country without a hitch (providing you have stock in a major oil company, lol).
As you well know you don't get out of an old vehicle what you put into it. I have been on both ends of this statement. That being said I have over 17,000.00 invested in this beauty over the past three years of restoration. I understand that I won't get near that price for it, HOWEVER, I am not desperate to sell her, i.e. I am not giving her away so Wholesalers please don't lurk around, nor send me ridiculous "black book" offers. I have six kids two of which will be driving in the next five years so I will keep this solid, reliable, tank of a truck for them to put around town in.
If you happen to have a child who is currently of the age to drive and you want to put him behind the wheel of a truck that turns heads at every corner, not to mention a truck that will keep them safe in case of an accident, and you don't feel like spending 40k or more at a dealership for a new chevy..then look no further. Or if your a big kid who wants another kick butt toy, here it is! Buyer is responsible for pick up and or shipping but I will do my best to assist with shipping company within reason, i.e. I will drive the truck to a local truck stop to meet the semi. Any taxes, tariffs, or duties levied by our country/government are your sole responsibility. Pick up the phone and call for I have keys and title in hand. Thanks. Joe 772 530 0517
