This thing was rough, and yes it was used as a tow truck.

It's the ultimate SUV...The Suburban Chevy should have made...

Pick up the kids, the groceries, and that repo on the way home honey!

The frame was solid, but not sure if anything will return of the body from the sandblasters.

In need of rust repair & restoration.  Body has typical rust on the floors & lower quarters.  Roof panel appears only to be tack welded in place so removal would be clean.  All window parts & interior trim are with it as pictured, but not installed.  Engine is a T-214 that still turns by hand.  Tranismission is missing side cover since truck had a winch and PTO was removed.  Windshield has rust on the bottom inside channel.  Header over sindshield is solid.  A-Pillars are more solid than most, B-Pillars are rusted at the floor line. 

Truck is not titled but I can get a title at additional cost.  I also have three of four original seats & springs at additional cost if you are building an original truck.  I have other original parts available too. 

Price is $7500   Call Brian with questions   508-776-4415
