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
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!!!
