    Man oh man, look at the room in the engine bay. Looks like it has psoriasis pretty bad.

    too bad it's got so much rust in it. That would be a pretty killer burb. I bet the rockers and floors are pretty far gone.

    That's a whole lot of years with salt being splashed up all over the under carriage of that rig. That's how they used to look in Mo. when I ran shops there.

    My '77 looked a lot like that before I went through a lot of effort to restore it. It can be done. You just gotta want it. I bet the floors and floor supports are pretty much dust under there now. I do love a round eye burb, though! :love62:

    I had a Suburban, 2wd, too around that year but don't remember the exact year. It was just a 1/2 ton, if I remember right. It was great for drive in movies. Could park backwards and lay in the back with popcorn and watch the movies....or whatever else we did. ;)

    I'm betting that's why it's been listed for 5 months and not gone for 2k.
