Vintage Chevrolet Revitalization

My 1970 Suburban

This project was started in July 2013.  I started this project primarily because of the rare find of this vehicle and the opportunity to work with my Dad directly on a project.

  • One 1970 Chevrolet Suburban
  • One Awesome Felix I call Dad.

Progress thus far:

  • New engine
  • New carburetor
  • New Heater Core
  • New Front Right Fender
  • U-Joints
  • Rear Brakes
  • Brake Drums
  • Radiator support
  • Fender well
  • Front Grill
  • Minor cosmetic items like door handles

Next steps

  • rebuild the rear end.
  • Body work to seal passenger side door.
  • paint exterior body
  • upholstery interior

    • Thanks James! It’s been a lot of fun so far. The interior is also going to be fun. My Dad has a really good upholstery guy but he is EXPESNSIVE! Amazing quality just really expensive.

    • Hi, I’m going home this weekend and I will finally be able to drive the truck for the first time 🙂 I will update this page with a progress report 🙂

  1. Love seeing the progress. It will be so nice to see it painted. Then the upholstery. What fun! Felix is awesome. Hey, we have my dad’s 3-wheel Isetta to do, if he’s ever out this way. 🙂
