For Sale: 1996 Chevrolet Tahoe in Phoenix, Arizona

Vehicle Description

NOTE!  I am posting this ad from Phoenix AZ for a client in the Boston area. The truck is located and can be inspected in Wakefield, Massachusetts. Contact me for details.

Astonishingly well preserved Tahoe LS 4WD, one owner for 26 years. Exceptional condition with only 92k miles! Acquired from the original 91-year-old owner. The vehicle is all original, meticulously maintained, and has been garaged its entire 27 year life.

Comes with its original window sticker, dealer invoice, leather-bound owner's manual, and two remote key FOB's, along with other service records and documentation. Off-the-chart Auto Check Score of 74 on the expected rating range of 45 to 61 for this year/make/model. No accidents or damage reported. 92k miles documented, only 3700 miles per year!

There are no modifications or customizations on this well preserved time capsule that seasoned collectors will appreciate. The original owner, a 91-year-old gentleman, bought the Tahoe new from his local Chevy/Oldsmobile dealer in Port Angeles, Washington (see dealer invoice in photos below). The truck spent several years in the state of Washington, and then lived in dry sunny Arizona. No rust as the undercarriage photos reveal. The vehicle is basically in showroom condition. Undercarriage and engine bay are stunning.

Original body and paint are nearly flawless with only a few minor scratches. All chrome, trim pieces, window glass, and roof rack are excellent. All the original door rubbers and weather stripping are still very pliable and firm. Bridgestone Dueler tires are relatively new with 80% tread. The interior seats, carpets, and door panels are in excellent condition as photos show. No tears and very little visible wear.


The truck has been completely gone through by a pro shop. Complete tune-up with new plugs and wires. Gaskets, belts, and hoses replaced as needed. Synthetic oil. New brake pads and rotors resurfaced. New ABS module. Refurbished differential assemblies, new front hubs, wheel speed sensor. New brake pads and resurfaced rotors. AC serviced, R134 freon. The truck runs and drives very strong with no issues, drips or leaks. All power features, dash controls, courtesy lights, and other convenience features are functional.


OBD feature (On Board Diagnostics) makes mechanical issues easy to diagnose. Parts for these popular SUV's are readily available and will be for years. Dependable daily driver, or roomy road trip cruiser, she's a great value, given that a new Tahoe can go for $50k to $75k. And while a new one will depreciate in value, this now collectable SUV will continue to go UP in value. I know because I have restored and tracked the values of 65 modern classics for investor clients all over the world. Now's the time.
