Up for auction is my GMC Suburban Sierra Classic with the 350 cubic inch fuel injected engine. It has an automatic overdrive transmission and manual locking front hubs.
It is in very nice, nearly all original condition. The only thing that isn't original is white paint and lower strip of tan paint that was redone a short time back. The only portion of tan that was re-painted was from behind the front wheel well back. It was redone because some of the clear coat was peeling on the white and there were some small rock chips on the lower tan portion. The re-paint portion is not car show quality, but is decent.
It is a Colorado and Wyoming vehicle that is rust free, with the exception of one small rust bubble under the edge of the passenger side mirror and one on the inside bottom edge of the rear passenger door. The under carriage has no road salt rust damage. It has a small ding on the right rear corner of the cab approximately 2 feet above the right rear tail light. It has a dent in the rear bumper at the driver side center. Other than that, it is in very nice shape for its age. The paint on the hood and roof is very nice and shiny and the dash is in very nice condition, so I believe this confirms what I was told from the previous owner, that it was always kept in the garage and very well maintained.
The tires have approximately 60% of the tread left. They are Goodyear Wranglers.
All of the power train parts are original and are in good working order and have been serviced and well maintained or have been replaced as needed.
It does have a new windshield.
It starts, runs, drives and stops very well. It has a slight wandering issue in steering if on a very uneven road. The AC works, but is not ice cold, so probably needs a little Freon. We don't need AC here in Wyoming. The rear AC unit fan rattles a little when it is running. The right rear door lock sticks a little, you just have to click the lock button a couple of times. The left rear seat belt has been replaced at sometime, but with a grey one and it does not roll up right. It does have an under the dash stereo CD player installed that works great even though the antenna is broken off. The factory stereo is still in the dash, but is not hooked up. The front seat cloth upholstery is starting to separate a little at the pleats in the center of bottom cushion.
I have tried to list all of the little flaws. It is a very nice classic body style older Suburban that runs and drives very nice and is quite dependable. Again, it is a 4 wheel drive. I wouldn't hesitate to take a trip in it anywhere. I believe it is a very trust worthy vehicle with a classy looking color and the more unique GMC look.
I do have some contacts for shipping and will assist in anyway I can with them. If you aren't able to pick up immediately, I can store the truck inside my garage for a little while (with prior arrangements).
I can email more pics if needed.
If you have any question feel free to call Jon at (361) 960-1650 or send an email.
I do reserve the right to end this auction early since I do have the truck for sale locally.
If you have zero Ebay transactions, please contact me before bidding or your bid may be rejected.
Thanks for looking and bid with confidence.

On May 27, a week before General Motors applied for a trademark for the word "Zora," GM filed a trademark application at the US Patent and Trademark Office for "GearOn," characterized as a "truck bed cargo system comprised of tiered storage cross rails, utility rack stanchions, cargo dividers and cargo tie down rings."

We have no idea what it will be or if we'll see it used on anything, but GM Authority reckons it could be GM's name for a pickup truck feature to rival the BoxLink system Ford introduced on the 2015 F-150. BoxLink has been described as having "dozens of configurations of stowable cargo ramps and lockable die-cast aluminum tie-down cleats," giving owners the ability to arrange the bed in they way they need and load unwieldy items like motorcycles without needing extra equipment.
Getting purely speculative, a month ago GM pickup truck engineers said there would be more and more regular updates for the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra starting next year. Beyond the suspected capability and fuel economy changes GearOn could be one of the "neat things coming in a whole host of areas."
One of the things that dogs the full comeback of General Motors is the instability of its marketing. That part of the automaker got yet another big shakeup today when GM confirmed what I have been tweeting for a few days - strong rumors that the Chevrolet and Cadillac ad accounts are walking to new ad agencies.

Cadillac, GM's luxury brand, is going into review from Fallon Worldwide, Minneapolis and the indications are that Campbell-Ewald, Chevy's old ad shop, will end up with most or all of it. C-E just announced that it was moving from its long-time home in Warren, MI to a new downtown Detroit office next to Ford Field, just blocks from GM.
The other shoe to drop shortly will be the shift of GM's most important brand, Chevy, from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners of San Francisco to McCann-Erickson of Troy, MI. McCann used to be the agency for Buick and GMC, as well as GM's corporate advertising, and has retained some pieces of business over the last few years. Sources have even told us that it was McCann that did a lot of the creative work on Chevy's new ad platform, Find New Roads. (Not to be confused with a former McCann tagline for Saab, "Find Your Own Road.")
General Motors is recalling 9,733 of its heavy-duty twins over concerns with their 6.6-liter diesel engines and dual fuel tanks. The recall covers some Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickups from model years 2012 and 2013, although the exact dates that the recalled trucks were built isn't specified. There's also no mention of how many models come from Chevrolet and how many are from GMC.
The problem rests with the transfer pump responsible for moving fuel from the rear tank to the front tank - it could fail, resulting in an inaccurate fuel gauge. It hardly requires explaining, but a faulty fuel gauge could leave drivers in a situation where they run out of diesel.
GM will begin notifying customers of affected vehicles, who will be asked to report to their dealers for a free replacement transfer pump.
