It’s rare to come across a perfect ‘survivor car’, that being a vehicle that is in like-new condition and has never had to be repaired or restored. If you do, it will likely be an ultra-desirable muscle car or sports car that the owner babied since new, like a 1969 Camaro SS or Pontiac GTO Judge. Coming across a survivor car that is typically used as a daily driver, like a Chevrolet CK/10 for example, is much more uncommon. That’s what makes this like-new 1975 Chevrolet Suburban currently up for sale on Craigslist a bit of a marvel.
Many Suburban buyers purchased the vehicle with the intent on towing a trailer, taking the family on a road trip, or maybe even doing some off-roading. Due to this, many eighth-generation Suburbans are in rough shape and would require lots of time, effort and money to make it look anywhere near as good as this all-original example does. The seller says the vehicle has been garaged throughout its entire life and that the “inside is like a time capsule,” with seats that look as if they’ve never been sat on some of the cleanest carpets we’ve seen in any 30-year old car, let alone a work horse like this.
The 454 Big Block engine is in perfect running condition and has just passed the 100,000-mile mark. Both the front and rear A/C units work, as does the power rear window. The hulking SUV also comes with all paper work acquired since 1975, including the original write-up sheet from the dealer. If you have a ‘70s era classic car, boat or camping trailer, we can’t think of a cooler vehicle to tow it with. At $6,500 OBO, it’s also a steal if you ask us. Check out the listing here.
