Schrödinger’s Suburban: 1969 Chevrolet Suburban C20

This next car comes from tipper SecondMouse who writes: Is it for sale, or it’s not for sale and you had some time to kill, or what? Here is an interesting 1969 c20 Suburban listed on Craigslist with an equally interesting approach to selling it. The seller says it’s not for sale because people will just lowball him, and then says he is looking for a trade, but later suggests you make him an offer if you are a cash buyer.  I could never figure out if the cat was alive or dead either. Maybe you can figure this guy out, here: Find this 1969 Chevrolet Suburban C20 offered for…errr…a trade for something ’86 or earlier via craigslist.

From the seller:

If ad is up, I still have it. DO NOT ask! Looking to trade for something good, preferably ’86 or older. No hurry. This is my daily driver. 1969 c20 suburban 3 door. It’s not for sale, any number I put you will just lowball. Cool for cool is what I am after. If you want to buy it, make an offer. It’s rough on outside but 100% mechanically solid.



Has rust, factory tach, original buckets and second row seat, 396( rebuilt with all paperwork) w/400 trans, factory wood bed, new suspension all the way around rack on top. Overhead a/c(not working) Titled in my name…yours will have your name on your title as well. I have a folder of reciepts for all work done. I’ve owned it for several years now, just want another jeep or 4×4. I don’t want your project. Mine is old and rusted but cool as hell. See pics. I’d like a k10 or CJ-7 w/ v8 and auto trans. No motorcycles, or boats or rv’s. Just testing the waters.. If you have something cool to trade for mine, contact me.
