    Default Suburban restoration

    I tried a post earlier and it did not appear to go through, so if I'm repeating myself, sorry.

    I recently purchased a 1962 Suburban and I am looking for any classic truck info that I can get for that era. i do not intend for it to be a complete restoration at this point. probably more along the lines of a rat/hot rod. i would appreciate any help, or warnings, that you can offer.

    Thanks,

    Dave S.

    Welcome to the site, Dave! A '62 Sub should be a good project.

    The bodystyle of the 62 is one of the better. Here are some pics to give you ideas. The two tone paint on the pick up gives you an idea of what it might look like on the burb.
    Keep us posted on what you do.
