Currently we have a 1969 Chevrolet Suburban. We have used it hard the past 5 years or more and it is due for some tender loving care. I don't know about you but I am not a fan of doing things over again and I have done this truck once. So I am on the quest for a Suburban replacement. Tonight I came across a truck I had heard about several years ago. 1955 Chevy Suburban I have contemplated building one of these trucks for over a decade and owned a 57 for a while before I found the 69. I am torn between low and real low. I think you could slide a 96 and up Yukon or Blazer platform under this body and have a 4 wheel drive for all seasons. The style of body would allow for 4 wheel and still have a relatively low ride height.
Real low would call for a bagged subframe and bagged 4 link out back. I marked off the possible chop when we had the 57 it is debatable if the look is worth the work . Anyway we will have to see how rough the body is.
