    86 1/2 ton sub 350 700R4/208 other then that it is striped. Just a rubber mat in it. Rust is not to bad. Is anyone offering replacement panels for rust? I never found any. I really going to need the rear floor where the wheels spit up everything. WHat should I look for? I had a sub for a while when I was young, but I totaled it. This time I hope it works out. thanks guys mike

    I pretty sure LMC makes replacement panels. There has to be others also. What to look for? Thats a big question.....all mechanical systems work and clear title....do you have specific concerns / questions? Good luck, Suburbans are great vehicles. I've got a few myself /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I checked my LMC catalog. There's not much in line of floor replacement metal. They sell some exterior parts (like fenders, rockers, etc) and they also have the tailpan (which I'll probably be getting this summer /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif). If you need a good section of the floor, I'd have to say either fab something up yourself or get a replacement section from a junkyarded burb. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I know where you can get a non stropped sub in az for
    8 bills...runs/drives and no rust and strait panels, shipping it would be cheaper than replacing a couple of the panels on that one /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I have a 73 body if you're interested. there's some rust on the passenger side front floorpan from an apparently bad heater core sometime in it's past. frame is dead, ( front end crash) engine is going to be gone soon, along with the front doors and tailgate, (it'll have some front doors, just crappy doorskins, instead of the ones I'm swiping for my truck) but if you're just looking for a body, it's yours for $100 plus whatever it'll take to get shipped there. ( I've also stolen the steering column, although I'll be dropping my old busted up tilt column in there to make it easier to move) ( the $100 is to cover my gasoline expenses to drive from CA to AZ to load it up on whatever delivery truck you want it on)

    if you're interested, let me know, and I'll tell you what all's there, and what I've swiped off it. title is salvage, and vehicle is classed as a 73 C10 suburban with a tow package.

    additionaly, I have a 77 C20 I've been trying to sell... 454/400 $1400, and it's yours. ( has some problems, I'll list those too if you're really interested)
