This 1979 Squarebody Chevrolet Suburban Is Retro Greatness And We Want It!

I’ve been a Suburban fan since I was old enough to say Suburban. Our family has had one almost continuously since I was 6 and I personally have owned several as well. The square body Chevrolet and GMC trucks are some of my favorites, and so the squarebody Suburban is of course one of my favoritist. It’s a word, I swear. So when I saw this one for sale on Facebook Marketplace, a California car that had zero rust and only needed a respray because the California sun beat it to death, I knew I had to share it. This is the godfather of SUVs and one fine example at that.

Here is all the info from the seller’s listing: CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE PHOTOS AND TO REPLY TO THE AD.

1979 Chevy C10 Suburban Silverado – Classic Suburbans are hot and we’d be lying if we said we we’re in love with them! In our nationwide hunt for clean, original classic trucks/SUVs, we were elated to find this 1 owner beauty in CA. This Suburban drives great and just under 99k miles from new. When we located this Chevy, the interior was super clean with exception of a spill that stained the rear trunk area and spare tire cover. We professionally replaced the material in these two areas to get them up to par with the rest of the interior. The exterior is very solid, straight and completely rust free. But, the hot California sun had done it’s damage to the entire upper surface of the vehicle. When the Suburban arrived in Texas we had it stripped and completely repainted in its original two-tone Cardinal Red & White. There was no point in putting the original trim over the new paint so that entire trim was replaced as was the rear bumper.

    Super clean. Brings back memories of my 75. Slow warm up, choke and cars issues, doors rattled all the time, the power window motors literally tor the sheet metal because they were heavy and sagged, slow as all can be. We had tons of fun in it though

    With the exception of the roof rack, this looks exactly like the ’79 my Dad bought in 1980. It appears the door panels have been replaced on this one. The ’79s have a curved door latch handle. The straight “bar” type was introduced in the 80s.
