For Sale: 1990 Chevrolet Suburban in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Looking for a rugged and surefooted workhorse offering plenty of room, with some vintage appeal thrown in to set it apart from the current sea of SUVs roaming the highway? This 1990 Chevrolet Suburban 4x4 has it covered. From all indications, it's been well treated over its lifetime and its very solid body recently received a freshening up, so it's both running and looking great.

This Chevy's sharp original configuration combines with some well-chosen add-ons to bring about a pleasing end result. Suburbans have been around for 80 plus years, but the model really came into its own once the seventh generation, of which this '90 is a member, emerged. Small wonder that this generation was kept largely intact for a full 19 years, far more than any of the Suburban's others, before or since. Its rugged appearance is amplified by a slightly elevated stance - just enough to show that some aftermarket work has been added, without going so far as to make the ride too harsh - as well as a set of substantially sized steel wheels that wear Chevy branded centers. A recent trip to the paint booth has everything looking nice and fresh - the black body with silver running along the lower doors and rocker panels is a great color combo and its slick texture brings out the best in the shade. The cabin glass has a slight tint to it and is surrounded by still-fresh seals and weatherstripping. The consistent gaps surrounding the hood and doors, including the ambulance-style doors in back, are among several indications that this Chevy greets the present in straight and solid shape.

The interior has yet to see any refurbishment, but is in very strong overall condition. This Suburban offers an abundance of seating- a pair of front buckets, a split bench just behind and a sideways mounted additional bench toward the back - and all of it still looks pretty darned good. There's no real damage to be found and the application of some common upholstery cleaner will definitely elevate the overall appearance inside. Up front, while the dash area may show a few of the expected cracks from both sun exposure and the mere passage of time, its replacement part is readily available and easy to install and all of the gauges inside the burlwood panel of the instrument cluster still work just as intended. The air conditioning was recently serviced and is in top form to cool this substantial cabin, and it uses modern 134a refrigerant.

The well-maintained engine compartment suggests that this vintage SUV has received proper attention over the years and its rock-solid driving condition confirms it. The 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood, fed by throttle body fuel injection, is in great shape - it starts right up with the turn of a key and still pulls with conviction, teaming with a 4-speed automatic transmission that shifts with slip-free precision. When the call of rugged terrain beckons, the featured 4-wheel drive feature is in good working order and this Chevy's appreciable ground clearance helps make the most of it. Power steering makes this sizable vehicle easy to navigate, while power brakes - with discs up front - bring the set of eye-catching 20" wheels wearing 33" mud terrain tires that look brand new to reliable stops in all conditions. Because any 4-wheel drive vehicle has the tendency to invite overly exuberant driving, the state of the undercarriage is always a consideration and this one is really solid.

With its extra sharp vintage appearance combining with a smoothly functioning drivetrain, this 1990 Chevrolet Suburban 4x4 offers and lot of fun at a very attainable price. Call today!
