Vehicle Story

This 1985 GMC Suburban Sierra Classic was purchased by the seller from the original California owner seven years ago, following a detailed mechanical and cosmetic restoration. A new crate 454ci V8 was installed and paired with a new Turbo 400 automatic transmission and new accessories included a radiator, power steering pump, master cylinder and booster, complete exhaust system, air conditioning compressor, and more. A two-tone Indian Bronze and beige repaint was applied, and the vehicle benefits from a refurbished interior, new shocks, wheels, tires, and rear air. This seventh-generation square-body Suburban is now offered with a CARFAX report and a clear Texas title in the seller’s name.

The body was resprayed in its original color combination of two-tone Indian Bronze and beige at the time of the restoration, and the grille, mirrors, and exterior trim were replaced at the same time. Bumpers, side view mirrors, and factory-correct Sierra Classic badges are all in excellent condition per the seller. A receiver hitch is installed below the rear bumper.

16” American Racing aluminum wheels are wrapped in new BFGoodrich T/A tires. The brake master cylinder and booster were replaced by the previous owner.

The interior is fitted with two rows of reupholstered light brown vinyl bench seats with matching door panels and flooring, a crack-free dash, and tan carpet has been cut to fit over the floor up front. Convenience equipment includes factory front and rear air conditioning, a Pioneer CD head unit, tinted windows, power locks, and power windows, including the electric tailgate glass. The cargo compartment is fully carpeted and contains the factory spare tire and associated jack equipment.

Instrumentation is framed by a 2-spoke steering wheel and consists of an 85-mph speedometer and gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The 5-digit mechanical odometer reads approximately 82k miles, but the CARFAX report reveals that true mileage is likely 182k.

The 454ci V8 is a replacement crate unit installed with all-new accessories, including a radiator, air conditioning compressor, power steering pump, and more. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a replacement Turbo 400 automatic transmission with a column-mounted shift lever.

The exhaust system from the headers to the exit tips was replaced under prior ownership, and newer KYB shocks can be found at all four corners. Additional photos showing the condition of the undercarriage are provided in the gallery.

The CARFAX report documents California registration from 1991 to January 2015, when registered and titled in Texas. Documented mileage readings show that the 5-digit odometer has rolled.

@4chiliking – Great looking Suburban! I’m wondering if there’s documentation for the replacement engine and transmission? Are all the power windows, door locks and air conditioning working as they should? I appreciate your help. ...

Thank you very much. When I purchased this from the estate of the original owner I received well over $20,000 worth of receipts. Motor, transmission, paint and everything else that had been done. That has been over seven years ago and I am not 100% sure I can still put my hands on them but will be happy to look. Everything on this Suburban works just as it should. All locks and windows including power tailgate window work perfectly and both A/C s blow ice cold.

This generation of suburban is one of the best trucks that was ever made! I recall my family friend having one similar 'way back when.' Looking at these photos I cant help but be a player on this one. I haven't seen one this clean since looking for one. In an ever changing car world, the "RADwood" era is taking its place center-stage and I expect it to be there a while. I only see this beauty gaining value. Good luck to all bidders!

@bbaldwin – I wish to post a comment because I bought a car from this seller off auto hunter last month. It was one of those amazingly pleasant experiences. Yes Auto Hunter is a nice website that serves to bring the buyer and the seller together. But the real reason we had the great experience was this particular seller named Monte. He made this deal come together so nicely. He was completely honest in his description of the vehicle in fact it was more than what he stated in the ad. When I had won the car as the high bidder he basically took it from there and found a shipper for me and had the car was delivered to my front door at a very reasonable price. He even filled the gas tank and the fluids were all checked Before he would let it go. It was completely cleaned inside and out including the engine bay and trunk. If Monte says he’s going to do something he does it. The buyer of this GMC can be very sure that they are getting exactly what is being described and will not be disappointed. ...

Wow Brad, that is incredibly nice of you to say. I have to say you are the kind of person that makes it easy to do all the right things. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with and also did exactly what you said you would. I am so happy that you are loving the 39 Ford. I knew you would. Hope you have a very blessed day.
