Big Boy Toy: 1970 Chevrolet Suburban Fire Rescue

The 3-door Suburban is one of the better combinations of interior volume, strength, reasonable price and simplicity in a cool package.  You could even drive one of these every day if you own your own oil company or have a short commute. Today's seventh generation C-20 Suburban has a cool paint job and history to go with its inherent utility.  Find this 1970 Chevy Suburban Fire Rescue offered for $8,500 in Hayward, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

The C-20 name comes from a combination of 2-wheel drive (K is 4WD) and 20 being the 3/4 ton model (10 is the base 1/2 ton).  The seller doesn't include any pictures of the interior, but it could be equipped with some interesting fire-rescue toys on the inside.  Fix the rust and just drive it.

 See another classic 3-door Burb?


  1. The last of the 'curbside.'
    First of the 'five-door?'

  2. First thing I thought of were the ambulances from this magical tv show

  3. I thought it never rusts in California? Proves the point once again that rust never sleeps.

    Cool truck actually, and them travel trailer wheels class it up a whole bunch extra.

    Looks like it could become the Command Truck for the Bundy Beef Boys out thataway Oregon.

  4. That rust is unusual if its an original California vehicle. As for shows I preferred this one:

  5. This really should have been what they used for the ghostbusters car in the new movie.
