I always wanted to do a Suburban, and ended up doing two. This project took three years. I am retired, and am in my shop the better part of 7 days a week. So, this was a full time project.
This 1948 Suburban has been chopped 3" and has its original frame, with some enhancements. The hood and doors are shaved, and the running boards are hand-made to go from back fender to front fender. The dash was cut out and I made an entire new one to cover the A/C equipment. You can see my all-steel hand-made console, and how it was installed so it looks like it was supposed to be there in the first place. The emergency brake and all switches are down inside the console, and there is an armrest for all four seats. The air cleaner is also hand-made and uses an 11" element. This suburban has lots of storage room in back because the gas tank is mounted under the floor between the frame rails.
This Suburban was sold a few years back, and I am now working on a truck. I would like to say that I try to buy as many of my parts as possible from Yogi's because the service and people there are top notch. Yogi and his staff have gone out of their way to make my projects turn out really great. Many thanks to everyone at Yogi's!
