Hemmings Find of the Day – 1955 GMC Suburban

Published in

Civil Defense-equipped 1955 GMC Suburban for sale on From the seller’s description:

This is a classic 1955 GMC that was a part of our country’s history during the Cold War. The truck has new paint, chrome, engine rebuild, tires, new gas tank and sending unit and restored interior but is not a frame-off restoration. The remainder of the truck is the original 1955 Civil Defense rescue vehicle with original equipment. It is a 100 2nd series with a straight 6, 248 c.i. . It runs on a 6 volt system, has a floor starter pedel and has a 3 speed column shift. The rebuilt engine has about 10,000 miles on it. The truck runs great and all of the sirens and lights work. Although the odometer shows 21,000 miles it no doubt has turned over at least once. I have a full background history on the vehicle and where it was put into service. I have owned it since 1983. It includes the orginial rescue stretchers; radiation detectors; 6 volt emergency light and personnel helmet.

Was on display in the American Driving Museum.
