    Default A 85 Suburban named nessie

    Against better judgement, I have taken a burden upon myself that is a 1985 GMC Suburban K1500. For the golden price of 950 I received a truck with a smoking 350 engine, garbage in the cab, mysterious letters, a knife, and a bullet hole in the windshield (going from the inside out). So this truck has some character, but the engine sounds smooth, the truck can move on its own power, the 4 wheel drive works great its just not able to pass inspection, yet. My goal for right now is to get the engine back to perfect running condition with the truck in general being street legal. I want to do this because I will be moving soon and want to tow my daily driver (civic) to my new home. After I get there I will be doing performance upgrades to the truck to properly do some hardcore off roading.

    P.S I named her Nessie after the Loch Ness Monster because she has about tree fiddy. (350 engine) If you get the reference kudos to you.

    Welcome to the club! She looks great minus the fact she's missing her grill.

    Nessie looks like she's off to a great start, she's got the basics to build on.
    She looks like she's already got a mild suspension lift and the body appears to be in good shape.
    That model/year Suburban has a lot of possibilities for building, should be a great project.
