1975 Suburban - Spare Parts
Back Home Up


By pure luck, I found out that a guy I knew from one of the Buick clubs I belong to was grabbing the motor and trans out of a 1980 Suburban and junking the rest. It was a 3/4 ton truck with the towing package and had tan bucket seats with a console, front shoulder belts, tach dash with full instrumentation, delay wipers, tilt steering, AC, the optional 40 gallon gas tank, dual batteries (not all there anymore), and an largely unbutchered wiring harness. I asked about parts, and he was more than happy to let me grab anything but the motor and trans. This is a list of what I grabbed while I had time. I'm posting it here so I don't forget about any of these odds and ends that are stored away in various places. If the list seems a bit eclectic in places, it because some pieces were broken or damaged and not worth saving. These parts will all bolt onto my 1975 Suburban, and are basically free replacement parts or nice upgrades in some cases, so I basically grabbed everything I could while I had time.
