5k: Winter Soldier: 1990 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 3/4 Ton 4WD

In 1973 with the release of the 3rd generation of third generation Rounded-Line C/R & K/V, the Suburban was let into the wild as a 4-door vehicle.  This was technically the 8th generation of Suburban and it was built for an amazing 19 year production life cycle, only to be replaced in 1992 by the GMT400 based Burb.  Find this 1990 Chevrolet Suburban 3/4 Ton 4WD currently bidding for $2,550 here on eBay with a few hours to go, located in Etters, PA.

This Suburban started life in service for a hospital according to the seller and has 95k miles on the odometer (although the title paperwork says 195k).  The truck is a 2500 series (or 3/4 ton…which is some strange method of communication between truck sellers and truck buyers, but has nothing to do with a physical ton)  is also equipped with 4-wheel-drive.

Under the hood is a throttle body fuel injected 350 cubic inch (5.7 liter) small block Chevy V8 that is mated to a 3-speed automatic transmission. 

The interior is a bit dirty, but the seller is a wholesale dealer and probably picked this thing up for pennies with a few other vehicles.  A carpet cleaner and some elbow grease will go a long way to make this nicer on the inside.  But at the end of the day it is still more of a beater than a show car.
