Finding a Suburban square body that hasn't suffered is becoming very difficult! This Suburban has the Sierra Classic package which makes the Suburban more luxurious with more chrome, a different steering wheel, brushed steel finish inside and much more.

Compared to the 1500 Suburban, the 2500 Suburban has stronger axles (8 bolts instead of 5 bolts) as well as stronger suspension and a stronger chassis. However, you can still drive this lovely car with a regular driving licence as the maximum allowed mass is less than 3500kg (in Belgium).

This 1988 GMC Suburban is executed in two-tone, Aspen Blue & Midnight Blue. The car has been partly repainted to correct problems with the transparent lacquer & this still looks very good. The original 16" steel wheels have the original GMC hubcaps and Dakota H/T tyres. The chrome on this vehicle is still in very good condition. The bottom still wears the original coating and this looks good, without any rust.

The interior of this car is like new. The captain seats at the front & the armrests have been redone in the original blue vinyl. All of the gauges still work properly. The rear seat also is in perfect condition without damage or wear. The air conditioning, front and rear, still works properly as do all of the electric locks. The headliner was sagging - a common issue - and has therefore been redone completely. Everything looks like new on the inside.

Mechanically, this car is in great condition with only 96,000 miles (154,000 km). The original 454ci (7.4L) big block works properly. The original TBI injection has been replaced by a more modern EFI system from FiTech. The distribution chain, water pump, alternator, dampers & brakes pads have been replaced. The power steering and power brakes work flawlessly. The car was also ordered with the Trailering Package which means that a limited slip differential (PosiTrac), a heavier radiator & a heavier transmission cooler were installed at the time.

The original owner’s manual & service manual are still available with the car.

In summary: this is one of the best Suburbans for sale with a healthy 454, nice lacquer & and the luxurious Sierra Classic package.
