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.

Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks to get diesel engines

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 18:59:00 EST

The market for midsize pickup trucks has all but been abandoned in the US, but General Motors is about to shake the market up with the all-new (to the US) Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Launching next year, GM already told us that its new trucks would be a "fuel-efficient alternative" to fullsize trucks, and aside from the smaller size, Automotive News says that these trucks will accomplish this with a diesel engine.
According to the AN report, the next-gen Colorado and Canyon will offer a small, four-cylinder Duramax turbo diesel with a displacement of either 2.5 or 2.8 liters - both engines are currently used in this truck for other markets. This would allow GM to join the Cummins-powered Nissan Titan and Ram 1500 EcoDiesel as the only non-HD trucks in the US to offer diesel. The article goes on to say that the diesel versions of the Colorado and Canyon would launch about a year after the trucks go into production in fall of 2014.

GMC Canyon will debut in Detroit

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 10:29:00 EST

With the debut of the Chevrolet Colorado at November's Los Angeles Auto Show, perhaps it was only a matter of time before we saw the small truck's GMC counterpart. That time will be January, as we've received official confirmation that the GMC Canyon will be revived at next month's North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The news came in the latest issue of the Detroit Auto Show's newsletter, NAIAS Connect. The article hasn't been posted online quite yet, but it details the Canyon as one of the world production debuts slated for the show.
While we've heard rumors that the Canyon would arrive in Detroit, this is our first concrete bit of evidence. As we've detailed before, we expect the Canyon to be stylistically quite different than the Colorado, though the underpinnings will be shared. The teaser image we have above is currently our only look at the new truck. We'll hopefully have more details in the next few weeks as the GMC Canyon draws closer to its official debut.

Chevy Silverado edges Ram 1500 in Consumer Reports two-truck shootout

Tue, 17 Sep 2013 16:31:00 EST

Forget Corvette versus Viper. When it comes to important head-to-head comparisons, fullsize trucks are where domestic automakers really care. And until the redesigned Ford F-150 makes its debut, the Chevrolet Silverado is going to have plenty to brag about thanks to a new Consumer Reports shootout against the Ram 1500.
It was a tight race among these V8-powered titans, but the all-new 2014 Silverado (and its GMC Sierra twin) barely edged out Ram's updated pickup with a score of 81 points - enough to make it the institute's top-rated fullsize truck on the market. Its narrow victory over the Ram, which finished just three points back, was due to its superior fuel economy, better towing and payload capacity and conveniences like a lower step-in height, easy-to-use tailgate and rear bumper steps that make loading and unloading less of a chore.
Importantly, CR notes that buyers with less heavy-duty truck needs might actually prefer the Ram over the Chevrolet, since its high points include a smoother ride thanks to its coil spring rear suspension, dominant infotainment system with Uconnect, and a big thumbs up for the available Hemi engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.
