1953 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN CARRYALL
*Includes Buyer Commission
Lot #2088 - This Suburban, done in the correct color combination of Sahara Beige with Regal Maroon pinstripe detail, is a very well-cared-for example of Chevrolet's "Advance Design" series of light trucks introduced in 1947. The painted grille, hood, mirror and window trim on this 1953 Suburban don't make it a Plain-Jane standard model, but show it to have been built during the period when American car and truck makers were instructed to use as little brightwork as possible due to a shortage of nickel caused by the Korean war. Features the rare/optional second- and third-row seats and the desirable "clamshell tailgate." Overhead storage is available with the beautifully restored, vintage roof rack. Powered by the venerable 216cid Thriftmaster "Stovebolt" rated at 92hp (used from 1929-1963), you will surely arrive in style hauling your canoe and vintage trailer to the lake property.
