Published in

From the seller’s description:

1956 GMC Suburban Deluxe 100 Series | 316cu in 5.2 liter V8, 4 Speed Hydra-Matic Transmission
Original Low Miles (64,893) Rust Free California Carryall – Made in Oakland California

All original GMC Suburban – never modified except for new upholstery, carpet and headliner. Currently Registered in California with a clean title and period correct yellow plates.

This California Native GMC Suburban was sitting for thirty years prior to purchase
by the current owner who got it running and driving and put together in its present condition.
This GMC features new red paint, carpet, and new upholstery on the roofboard and front seats
This is a mostly rust free truck – in mostly unrestored condition. The body and
under carriage show no signs of rust or previous damage.

Since the truck has never been restored fully, the underside shows the dirt and grime
of a 60 plus year old truck, there are areas that still have the original undercoating.
The windows are original laminated glass from when the truck was new
so there are bubbles in between the laminate along the outside edges on many
of the pieces. Many window mouldings and seals will need to be replaced. The chrome bumpers are in average condition for their age, but not perfect. There is a factory style AC unit istalled that probably did not originally come with the Suburban. The rear seats are missing. Thr truck will also need new tires.

The Suburban features the original numbers matching Pontiac designed
316cu in 5.2 liter V8 engine and 4 speed Hydra-Matic transmission and is in great running
and driving condition! The transmission shifts perfectly and the engine shows no signs of oil leaks,
overheating or missfiring.
