1972 Chevrolet Suburban 4x4 LS Swap Blue 4WD
A supercharged LQ9 6.0-liter LS V8 reportedly was installed in 2012
along with a GM 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission and a
dual-range transfer case. The blue and white interior was redone
with reupholstered late-model seats in 2012, and the exterior was
refinished in blue and white in 2015. Additional modifications
include a slide-out cargo bed, rear air-ride suspension, HID
headlamps, front and rear parking sensors, and a Sony touchscreen
head unit with Apple CarPlay capability and a backup camera.
This Suburban was repainted in blue and white in 2015, and it
received further paintwork in 2020 following rust repair on the
driver-side front fender and on the tailgate. Additional exterior
features include two doors on the passenger side of the vehicle and
one on the driver side, red-painted passenger steps, and a split
tailgate. White-painted 16? steel wheels with chromed hubcaps are
wrapped in 265/75 Michelin LTX tires. Air-ride suspension
components have been installed at the rear.
The interior was refurbished in 2012 with replacement blue
carpeting over Dynamat sound dampening, and seats from a late-model
Chevrolet pickup have been installed and reupholstered in two-tone
blue and white with matching door panels. A custom two-tone
headliner was installed along with replacement kick panels with
speaker inserts, and additional amenities include heated front
seats, power-adjustability for the driver seat, a tilting steering
column, updated air conditioning, power windows and locks, and a
backup camera. A Sony touchscreen head unit with Apple CarPlay
capability plays through Clarion audio components including
amplifiers, a subwoofer, and 6? speakers as well as JL 6? speakers
in the rear upper panel. A slide-out Bed Slide 1000 cargo tray has
been installed in the rear compartment.
The LQ9 6.0-liter Vortec V8 has been fitted with a Magnuson
supercharger; the engine reportedly had 21k kilometers (~13k miles)
of use prior to installation in this vehicle. The speedometer cable
was replaced in September 2020. Power is sent to the rear or all
four wheels via a GM 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission and a
dual-range transfer case.
