Was rummaging through the computer and found some old pics.
|1953 chevy suburban|
This was our old family wagon.
|jaxon and the suburban|
I had rebuilt the 235 6-cylinder,
and put a 4-speed saginaw behind it with a 3.23 10-bolt posi rearend,
and nova disc brakes up front.
For a big tank of a SUV,
this thing cruised so smooth.
|old chevy 6|
It had the stock single barrel intake,
it just ran too well to want to screw with it.
The chromed fenton headers so sounded cool,
and we had push-button flame throwers out the back!
|chevy truck homebrew lowering kit|
I lowered it by flipping all the main leaves,
and cutting down all the spring hangers.
|custom spring clamps!|
Check this out for the spring clamp modification!
Usually there was one bolt through the middle.
Crude but effective!
Hope it's still together!

I loved this old heap,
but there were a couple things which pushed us to get rid of it.
First off it only had 2 doors,
and it only had one half seat in back.
With 2 kids it was just a hassle.

Also I had found a sweet 1940 coupe,
and there was no way I could get it without the suburban as a down payment.
You gotta do what you gotta do!
