I have 3 different GMC Suburban Carryalls for sale - this one is my very rare and very solid 100% original and untouched 1959 GMC Suburban Carryall from the Dry desert of West Texas. It is a one owner. low miles truck and is the highly sought after and rarer Deluxe cab model w/ chrome grill. chrome around the windshield and around the vent glasses. Chrome bumpers etc. It has its original 336 Pontiac V8 and 3 speed manual trans that are not locked up and the engine was very well taken care of by the original owner its whole life - was driven to where it was parked when I got it and would not take much more than a good battery and some brake work to get it going again. it's body is 95% rust free. Both doors are completely rust free and so is the whole floorboard and steps. Suburbans specifically end up with rusted out areas behind the rear tires and this is the only real area where you will need to do any welding or patching work other than a small area on the lower Right front fender where they all rust out. The front fenders are more solid than usual with no rust above the headlights. but the drivers side dented towards the back from the drivers door not shutting right and catching it. The Drivers door is super solid but needs a new door hinge on bottom or something because it sags when you open it. and it will not stay shut with the latch - might just need some oiling and tinkering to make it latch or I can give you a known good door latch out of another door if needed. Drivers door window will not roll up and down as the regulator is stripped out. I'm sure I have one somewhere here to replace it though. Hood is nice and straight. but hinges are bad and it wont close correctly. Has the deluxe heater and the super rare rear clamshell gates - not barn doors. Tailgate was removed and professionally repaired where the hinges were warping the outer skin from use. but its mint mint mint now and ready for repainting. Everything else is untouched and in factory yellow paint except the repaired tailgate. Original factory Yellow truck which is really cool and unusual. Has sliding windows and is in a rarely complete and nearly rust free Western-type condition for one of these if you know anything about one. Frame and all drivetrain etc are smooth and super nice from being in the desert - not all pitted and crusty like trucks from other parts of the country. Missing one piece of the slider window on the pass rear - simply use drivers rear pane as a template for your glass shop to cut one from. Windshield is broken and needs replacementABOUT SHIPPING: I have a fellow named Robbie Tidwell from North Carolina who goes and gets all my trucks from all over the country on a simple open car hauler trailer. and he is solid gold - does a great job for less than anyone for delivery of non-running vehicles - when you know you are really serious about buying one of these suburbans. let me know and I will get you in touch with Robbie to get a shipping amount figured up. Suburbans are stored indoors and will be shipped from Joppa AL 35087SUBRURBAN #2: I also have an identical 1958 GMC Suburban Carryall w/ barn doors with a similarly solid body that is more surface rusty etc. but its a factory 336 Pontiac V8 also. and known to run great PLUS its a rare rare factory automatic where the Yellow one is a 3 speed manual trans. Click see sellers other items link above to find it. Lastly. I have a 1960 GMC Suburban that is a dry rust free California body but its completely dismantled and is in bare metal from being soda blasted - would make one hell of a perfect hot rod! perfect sheetmetal and NOS GM rockers professionally installed on it. Perfect clamshell gates. and amazingly preserved 3 rows of original seats. Comes on a "roller" unrestored dirty 60-62 Chevrolet frame because its harder to hot rod a GMC frame because there are no V8 engine mounts on one of those where this Chevy frame does - still the correct frame for the truck unless you are planning to go with an original V6 in it. This project could go either way and I do have a roller GMC frame if someone wanted to go the V6 route. Inquire TEXT preferred or email or call 256 486 1988 - thanks. Steve
