    Thx to all that read and reply to this post...

    Anyways... 4 mo. ago i bought a 1988 Suburban 1/2 ton 4x4 from an elderly man... engineer... real miticlous kind of guy... vehicle was unreal clean...

    i purchased the vehicle with 140,xxx miles... he had a whole folder full of recipts and work done in the 15 years he has owned it

    it had a new trans and motor installed in 1999 with just over 100,000 on it, and ran great when i bought it... i have the recipts for the goodwrench motor (the right one too) and the chevy dealer that installed it...

    anyways this motor went out 700 miles after i bought it... has a bad knock, but still starts

    i have since purchased my blazer and wish to sell this.

    i paid 3200 dollars for it as the interior has been almost completley restored (seats all prof. re done, air recharged. dash, etc...) EVERYTHING works from the rear heat and air to elec. windows and locks, no stains anywhere... looks like new...but now has a non working motor, it has paint 4 years ago, looks great, oringinal rally's, tow package... 700r4 that works right.. under hood looks great, so may recipts, i hate to sell but don't have time and money for this project anymore..

    what can i get for this.. i will post pics up in the next couople days...

    i was gonna throw on ebay, but this should be worth atleast 1700 or so with the bad motor... i have not seen this gen burb with an interior like this

    offers... what is this worth

    will include 4 new snow tires (700 dollars worth with extra set of rally rims, they are already balanced and mounted
