    Gonna "Chev" the '67 Olds. Sacrilege!

    I've been looking to upgrade my '67 Olds for awhile now but never have the time. Don't really even drive it much really. Anyway I stumbled upon this '84 Suburban. New 383 stroker small block and a brand new (like not even 15 miles on it) 700r4 trans with Vette valve body and 2500 stall converter. Even has a mini high torque starter and electric cooling. I bought it. The Suburban sounds killer and moves out real well for it's size. Can't wait to see what subtracting more than 2000 lbs off it when it's in the Olds will do.

    I really wanted to keep my car Oldsmobile powered but couldn't pass up on this. It'll all be reversible and I'll keep my great running 330/glide on a pallet at the warehouse. It's gonna be sweet having that overdrive transmission in there. Here's a few pics of the donor Suburban I bought:










    And the car it is going into:

    Well, you are in Florida. We can make arrangements for the wheels. Too bad I can't use them on something, I like those old truck wheels.

    That Suburban looks way too nice to be a donor vehicle.

    I always thought you would put a N* motor into the Cutlass

    ^^^That's what I thought.

    I'd put a junkyard trans in the Suburban and try flipping it for $3k or more. You'd be surprised what the right person will pay for those in good condition. Take that money and build yourself an Olds engine.

    ^ That actually sounds like a really solid idea.

    The 'burban is a damn good looking truck. What are the eventual plans for it? Please tell me it's not going to be scrapped. You can donate it to me and I'll keep it alive, somehow.

    Probably gonna part it out and then send it to the crusher. Not sure. I may try to sell it whole after the drive train is pulled. It drives very nice, good brakes, goes straight and suspension is tight. It is also has hardly any rust. It does need paint though. Here's some more pics of it.

    Yeah, that is an older pic. The Eldo is long gone!

    Damn, that thing is straight as an arrow! Paint is just superficial. If I had some spare cash I would love to take if off your hands. I could always find a motor and trans for it. Even the interior is in great shape. I really hope you don't dismantle it, it's way too nice for that IMO.

    ^ I'd have to agree with you.

    My grandfather had a suburban of that vintage, except his was green. Lots of memories cruising down to Homestead Miami speedway to watch the November NASCAR races in that truck.

    My aunt has a 1991 Suburban with the Silverado package, much like that one. Hers has 250k on it, but it's got a new body on it, as the original rusted out too badly below the doors and stuff, so my uncle took the body off the frame, and installed a body from a Texas truck onto it. Looks great and is finished in a sweet dark/light blue two tone paint job. I really, really like the '80s era Suburbans, even if they aren't as comfortable or as powerful as the newer ones.
