Welcome to the Sunday Edition of the Hooniverse Weekend, and I’m continuing with the a special Diesel Weekend inspired by this posting from Kamil. The Chevrolet and GMC Surburbans were somewhat iconic throughout the decades, offering a different type of vehicle that can be used to tow trailers that the family wagon or Minivan couldn’t, while still being civilized inside with comfortable seats, adequate climate control, and optional 4WD. What we have here is a couple of older Suburbans that are somewhat loaded with factory options, along with the diesel power-plants. So which of these two Surburbans could you use for your weekend activities?
The first Suburban is this 1988 Chevrolet 2WD version located in Lakeland, FL. It is indeed loaded to the hilt from factory with power everything, A/C, two-tone paint, third row seat, and more. I will let the listing do the talking, but beware, the wording is a bit naff:
We challenge you to find a better example of and 88 chevy suburban with the hard to find and very rare 6.2 diesel anywhere with just 50,000 miles on the jasper engine. we bought this to have just 88000 miles from a new car store, after we flew and and drove back 800 miles we found paper work in glove box along with a lot of other recepits but the big one was and new rebuilt jasper 6.2 diesel engine installed at 136000 miles. Car This suv rides and drives like brand new infact it got 24 mpg on trip home from north carolina and I do mean that, it truly Looks, drives perfect with brand new tires and even the a/c is ice cold one small crake in dash this truck would pass for 50ooo miles its that clean and has no issiues. truck looks great hood has some fad but outside of that just and outstanding suv Please come inspect for yourself,must see and drive. Undercarriage and pictures speak for themselves. please take a good look at pic’s below and give us a call.
The only thing I would question is the mileage. As the listing stated, the truck was suppose to have 88,000 miles, then they found a receipt that stated the truck received an engine transplant at 136,000 miles, and the engine currently has 50,000 miles on it. Let’s just say they don’t know the actual mileage of the truck or engine, but this is a no reserve auction! With over five days to go, the top bid is currently $2,475, which is reasonable for what you get. Go see the listing here: 1988 Chevrolet Suburban Diesel
Here is a Suburban that is at least a decade newer. This is a 1999 GMC Suburban, and it has been lavishly equipped with leather, front and rear A/C, 4WD, and a Turbocharged version of the 6.2L Diesel. According to the listing:
1999 Gmc Suburban 6.5 turbo Diesel SLT Package 4X4. This vehicle is in a great condition and has every single option including side steps, towing package with electrical brake, roof rack with custom TUHLE Ski Rack, leather and heated seats, rear HEAT & A/C, Rear entertainment system, factory alarm. the vehicle has 188K highway miles on it for diesel motor that’s nothing. Vehicle is also equipped with snow plower system that functions perfect all you need is blade. From everything that installed recently: 2 batteries, new starter, heavy duty front stabilizer bar with bushings and links. The vehicle looks and drives great. Front tires have about 65% thread on them, rear tires are about 55%.
This is not a no reserve auction, and with over four days to go, the top bid so far is $2,025 with an unmet reserve. The Buy-It-Now price is $8,500, which really isn’t bad when you consider what you get with this beast. Take a look at the listing here: 1999 GMC Suburban SLT Turbo Diesel
