For Sale: 1970 Chevrolet Suburban in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

Professional cars have a deep-rooted following, because after all, ones like this 1970 Chevrolet Suburban Ambulance was plucked from the assembly line to become a low-numbers small-batch crafted machine. So look over all the investments in restoring this rare and attention-grabbing classic.

Miller-Meteor is a particularly celebrated brand in the professional car community. They dealt almost exclusively in Cadillacs, including being the builders of the Ghostbusters Ecto 1. But there were a few rare diversions, like when other parts of the company utilized the Suburban chassis for a few years. This is one of those examples. So you already have an interesting and rare chapter in history before you look over the superior condition of this Sentinel-series ambulance. The Hugger Orange and white has been expertly applied, and the chrome bumpers look great, so it has a shine that will get this big SUV noticed from blocks away. Of course, you can get them to hear and see you even sooner with the full and working light and siren package. It's mounted within the unique roof that was custom crafted onto these ambulances. This has a true professional look with spotlights front and rear, wide trailering mirrors, and the full Life Beat livery - even on the windows. They really went the extra mile with the details, so you have a CB radio antenna, correct wheel covers, and even thin pinstriping against the bold paint.

More of that exceptionally correct attitude is seen with the interior. The rear doors have a smooth action as they swing wide to reveal a full professional setup. Two stretchers and a gurney dominate this area. Plus, you see great details, like a bench seat w/storage, portable oxygen tanks, and a pass-through window to the cab. There's even a resuscitator briefcase that comes with the sale! You can tell that there was a nice investment making this all look good. After all, when this was in professional use, the first thought was about the patient, and the last thought was not scuffing the paint - so you can see they properly restored this area. The cab is a clean and classic Chevy Suburban/pickup featuring a red bench seat with matching door panels and steering wheel. Plus, the dash has a custom panel for the lights, siren, and CB radio.

Under the hood is Chevy's trusty 350 cubic-inch V8, and it looks exceptionally correct, right down to the decals. While they took time to care for the unique pieces of this ambulance, the crisp condition of the engine bay tells you that they also paid attention to the fundamentals, too. And we know you'll love the details, like the dual air horns mounted on the inner fender wall. The era-correct V8 is fed by a Rochester four-barrel carburetor for good power. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission feeds a sturdy 12-bolt rear end. Plus, there's power steering and power brakes. So while this Suburban's days of taking lifeline calls are over, it's still easy to drive to all the events.

This is a rare opportunity at a well preserved and restored coach-built classic. So at this affordable price, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
