Car: ( Or, in this case, Truck ): Chevrolet Suburban
What makes it special: Rarely does any nameplate survive as long as Chevrolet’s Suburban. It started as a 2-door, eight passenger vehicle with 60hp in the 1930’s to the 355hp SUV’s we know today. It has evolved through more than 10 generations.
What made it famous: The second generation of the Chevrolet Suburban was produced for the 1937 to 1940 model years. By this point, its Stovebolt Inline six-cylinder engine boasted 79hp, and it’s body style changes gave Surburban a look that lasted till the 1956 model year.
Why I would want one: I love old trucks, and even though they are referred to as “SUV’s” now, to me…it still has the heartbeat of a truck.
Fun fact: The Chevrolet Suburban is still produced as sold today.
