I purchased a 1990 V1500 Suburban this spring as a project vehicle for my son and I to work on to be his first vehicle. We are a family of 7, so I was looking for something that the whole family can ride in and also serve as something I can teach our kids how to repair and maintain. So, why not a square body Suburban? Originally I wanted to find a round eye 4X4 with a manual transmission since I thought they would be simpler to work on and the kids could learn to drive a stick also. I came across this one though and decided it was the one for us since the body was solid and the engine is pretty fresh. Plans are to go through it mechanically, then freshen up the interior, and finally re-paint it. It has a 350 TBI w/700R4 currently. We have ideas of maybe doing a NV4500 swap in the future. I will post more pics of progress as we go.
