    Took this pic today coming out of Powderhorn. I think its a 64 or 65, judging by the grill. Its 4wd. There is also a running driving 58 or 59 (4 headlights) 4 wd at the same location. Its kinda odd, has 5 lug wheels.

    Update: just talked to the son of the owner of this truck. One thousand bucks, and its yours. PM me if anyone wants the woners phone number.

    64-66 for sure. The 60-63 had different door/windshield.

    Looks more like an old burb out to pasture.

    Sorta looks like mine. The only changes between 64-66 were the badges, mostly the style, other than that there weren't any changes. Why can't I find those just lying around out here?? With 5 lug, the axles have been swapped or that conversion thingy....

    One word. SALT!!!! :yikes:

    Colorado hardly ever uses it. Just about every vehicle that old that was driven in northeast winters has long since been reduced to iron oxide. :( I used to see stuff that old all the time when I lived in Colorado. Between the lack of salted roads and the semi-arid climate, sheet metal lasts a really long time there.

    There's a driveway that looks VERY similar to that pic above just outside of Woodland Park, CO that has a couple of old Suburbans sitting all alone like that. There's still a lot of vintage iron sitting around in CO.

    I found out today, this Burb can be bought for $1000. Its 4wd, and thats all I know about it. Located in Powderhorn, Colorado. Anyone who is interested, PM me for the owners phone number. Not mine, and no commission, just want it to go to a GOOD home. The owners DD is a 58/59 4wd burb,:eek1: :eek1:
