    Here is my 72 burb that I have had since 1998 drove it about four mounts and was parked ever since.
    The was used by a church to pick up the old gray hair's and then they parked it behind the shed ( so a little rust to fix) this is a low mile 56,xxx.

    Spec.
    350,350th ,d44,eaton 4.10 , 6 '' skyjacker spring lift .

    Plan to do a offbody restore.

    I can get more pics if needed.

    Very nice rig :bow: :bow: !!

    Dumb question: Is that a metal rear hatch? It looks alot like my fiberglass one on my '72 Blazer.

    Cummins = very cool but not stock
    350 = just rebuild it
    396 = which I have ,was pulled from a 69 GMC walk through camper.

    At this point just getting this redone like it came off the show room floor will take bit and the $$$$$ .

    Parts are hard to to find!!

    Well i wished it didn't have so much rust,just the lower half in some places.This burb was setting in 3' high weeds so the body was going to rust plus I don't think the church did alot to it.From what I can tell most of the is all stock I really like the top rad hose/tube/hose,I have seen two others like that before.

    Yes we need alot more Burbs,I wish mine had the barn doors and rear A/C but for the price I paid for it I can't bitch.

    Nice GMC burb by the way.

    It has lots of potential.

    Regarding the upper radiator hose/tube/hose, I think that was how all of the 4wd's were set up.
