CUMMINS SWAPPED 1972 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN. FRAME OFF RESTORED!!
This 1972 Chevrolet Suburban was frame-off restored and repowered with a Cummins Diesel Engine some years ago. According to the last owner it was restored by Midstate Auto Restoration which is in Mesa, AZ according to our research and was completed around 3 years ago. He purchased it already restored and did not receive the documentation or receipts. This definitely appears to be a well thought out and quality restoration as you can see by the pictures. It is really nicely done and only has around 2,000 miles driven since being completed. It is a great combination of a Vintage looking SUV with modern drivetrain and interior. This was a frame-off restoration and was completely gone through top to bottom with everything addressed. The craftsmanship is top notch and it was well thought out. The body is exceptional on this truck with only some minor stone chips and ,arks from driving. Very very clean and all of the panels are metal and nice and straight. The paint looks fantastic and was professionally applied. Definitely a top notch paint job. All of the chrome an stainless is excellent and they also added the Escalade Running Boards to match the interior. They also added a steel cowl hood which looks great! Take a look at the underside pictures and you will see the quality of the build and how nice this rig really is.
The interior was also completely restored, is custom, and looks excellent. They completely stripped the inside and added new carpet, new headliner, dew dash, custom console, new door panels, Escalade Captains chairs front and rear with shoulder seat belts (working electric seats), custom sound system with Navigation, Power Windows in the front, and they made sure everything was working including gauges, heat, wipers, horn, etc. Really nicely done!!
Mechanically this Suburban is really cool with engine upgrade of the 5.9L Cummins Diesel Engine. The builder of this rig took a lot of time to install this and make it look factory....it is very well done. The 5.9L Diesel is the highly desired 6BT because it is the most reliable pre-emissions diesel. Supposedly this engine was a newer crate engine, but we have no way to prove it. It certainly appears to be new. They mated it to the 700R4 OD Automatic Transmission with The NP205 Transfer case and custom driveshafts. It has a 12 Bolt Rear End and the Front End is a DANA 44 with Disc Brakes. Both Axles were gone through at the time of restoration. All of this is sitting on a 3 Inch Lift with new Yokohama 33 Inch Tires mounted on Rally Rims. Very Cool look!! This truck runs and drives amazing and was really fun to drive. Take it to a show or just drive it everyday!!
