For Sale: 1956 Dodge Suburban in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1956 Dodge Suburban 2 Door Wagon has a fresh look inside and out. But while all of that is part of your love for a distinct vintage car, what's under the skin that makes it a true modern cruiser. The fuel-injected V8, overdrive transmission, upgraded suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes take this cool classic and make it a true all-around driver.


This kind of Dodge has a legendary look. Virgil Exner brought in a sweeping design that looked fast standing still. The tapered angle of the front; the way the rounded fender top seemed to stretch from headlight to tail light; and the smooth flow of the tailfins that just seem to rise from the fenders. It makes for the kind of impressive style that's more distinctive today than even a 1956 Chevy Nomad. So that means this two-door wagon is a terrific car for a custom build... but the first impression of this is all about being a cool classic. The Charcoal Gray and Oriental Coral is a great 1950s color combo, but the clearcoat glow this one has shows off how fresh the finish really is (we're told this was done only about a month ago!) And this Suburban knew how to separate the two colors with unique trim lines that highlighted the detailed hood and sweeping sides. There's a true vintage feeling with the brightwork and badging that helps make this feel more genuine than a usual restomod. Of course, the details also give it that true classic feeling. You see it in the roof rack, stock hubcaps, correct badging, and white roof that makes this one a tri-tone 1950s wagon.


The interior continues the fresh but vintage style. We especially like the seats with black and white two-tone with a distinct pattern insert and a touch of tuck and roll flair. A taut headliner, full carpeting, and a glossy dash complete an inviting style. Plus, the two-piece tailgate is great for ballgames of just giving you plenty of access to all that cargo room. It's all correctly vintage right down to the badge on the artful steering wheel. But as you get into the driver's seat, you start to see some well-integrated upgrades. The AutoMeter Pro-Comp auxiliary readouts are placed within the classic dash. And the center console has a classic clock right below the AM/FM stereo that has USB and Bluetooth for better driving music.


The engine bay has a purposeful look that showcases the upgraded power. This is an all-aluminum 5.3-liter LS block with LS1 heads. It's installed correctly, including a cold air intake and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. To keep this cruising attitude at its best, you have an upgraded front suspension, tubular A-arms and a Hotchkis sway bar. There are also four-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. So you can now really understand how this classic Dodge has a terrific modern cruising attitude.


This is an exceptionally unique machine that's perfect for everything from a surf wagon to your classic that fits the whole family. But award-worthy customs like this rarely stay available for long. Call today!!!
