    This sleek black Suburban was apparently owned by a single owner from its original purchase in March 1976 at Thorpe’s Pontiac in Tannersville, New York, to a certain time in 2020. The original cost, after taxes and discounts, was $ 5,577.60, thanks to an unusual combination of options. There’s a 350-cubic-inch V-8 engine (not an inline six, as some may prefer) paired with a column-mounted three-speed manual transmission. The truck was ordered with power steering, chrome bumpers and a 32 gallon fuel tank. Inside, the suburban’s front and rear seats are upholstered in classic Scottish vinyl (the rear seats fold down) and the truck is also equipped with rubber floor mats and wood trim. Occupants will be able to enjoy the rich and authentic sounds of AM radio as they cruise around in this truck beast.
