Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this stunning 1949 GMC Suburban. After the war people were lined up waiting for General motors to start rolling out the new pickup line. That featured a new, larger windshield, bigger side and rear window glass, and optional rear-quarter windows vastly improved safety and drivability. Higher and wider cab doors made entry and exit easier. Another new feature, which further contributed to driver comfort and safety, was a fresh-air heater/defroster system, which brought fresh outside air into the cab and forced used air out through vents at the rear of the cab.
