Picked Up A Nice Body

I had a friend call me a month ago. He is moving to Kentucky from CA. Anyway, he dropped a Suburban off at my house. I wasnít too excited about it before, because they can be rust buckets. This one is not! It was a K20 with factory bucket seats.

Nice score. I would love to have friends like yours. My old lady is glad I don't.

Re: Picked Up A Nice Body

I am curious if bucket seat Suburbans had the same floor support as Blazer and bucket equipped pickups. And where the seat belt floor anchors were as the bench seat anchor points seem too far rearward when going from bench to buckets.

Iíll get some dimensions. I know I had 71k20 suburban with factory bucket seats. Someone had taken them out and put a bench in. The holes did not match.

Re: Picked Up A Nice Body

I'm glad you posted #2 saying nice, which it is. So many expect a perfect body, but they aren't, even in AZ. My NTX truck is less good...

That is a pretty nice unit! I wish it were closer.
