1989 GMC Suburban SLE 350 TBI from North America
I love it, and I would like a few more
It was a second owner, and the engine was the original, with a non-foul on the #2 cylinder, the engine ran low on oil once and threw a rod... so now it has a brand new engine. And it's even better that before.
I have a 1989 GMC SLE Suburban that I purchased for $400.
It now has a rebuilt/new 350, dualled out with long tube headers and cherry bomb/flow master's. The TBI has a spacer, and the Suburban is currently in the stages of dual-forced air, allowing it to get up to 20mpg (I get 19 mpg right now (13 in town)), while boosting my torque and horsepower.
It has been very efficient and strong, the interior is still in good shape, minus the dash. They will almost always be cracked.
Also the transmission is very responsive, no lag. Soon it will have an after market torque converter for even more efficient results.
The suburban is a very well built vehicle (the older ones).
They don't make 'em like they used to tho...
All in all, buy an old Suburban today!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
