1977 CHEVY C10 SUBURBAN 2WD | CRAIGSLIST CREEPIN'

THIS RARE CHEVROLET IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF A CALIFORNIA CLASSIC

JOSH W | MAY 18 2020

This is the first installment of Craigslist Creepin' on Junkyard Mob. In this segment, I find cool stuff on local classifieds and give it a score based on arbitrary metrics. Today we have a 1977 2WD Half-Ton Chevrolet Suburban.

One of my favorite pastimes is browsing through my local classifieds for cars that I can't afford. This acceptably clean (and rare) 2WD Chevrolet C10 Suburban is one of those cars that I can't afford.

A two-wheel-drive squarebody Suburban is the best. Why? Because unlike your typical used four-wheel-drive squarebody, it doesn't ride like brick shithouse. Say what you want, but you know it's true.

SCORE


  • PRICE: 7/10
  • CONDITION: 7/10
  • COOL FACTOR: 7/10
  • DAILY DRIVER: 6/10
  • PRACTICALITY: 8/10

  • OVERALL: 7/10

    Pretty Good

    This 1977 Chevrolet Suburban Classic comes with a "new motor" that apparently has 54,000 miles on it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but calling a 54k motor 'new' seems like a bit of a stretch. But for $4,950, the thing is pretty damn clean. If I had the money, I'd probably buy it myself.

    Paint isn't so bad. A little wax works wonders.

    As you might expect, this old people puller comes equipped with a dogged-out (and smogged-out) 350 coming in at a whopping 170-something horsepower. Thanks, California.

    Gotta love that old GM vinyl. Holds up better than you'd expect.

    This old 'burb is pretty clean for a 43-year-old SUV. From what I can tell, it looks all original, there's little to no rust, and the interior is more than tolerable. With a bit of work, this cool two-tone could be good as new.

    Looks pretty much original. Hope nobody cut the dash.

    And despite the annoying rules, there's something to be said about classic cars from California. I've yet to find cheaper, cleaner classics anywhere else in the country.
