1957 Chevy Panel Van
It's not a suburban but it's close. It's a panel van.
Thought I'd share some pictures of my project.

I love those old panel trucks. What are your plans for it, full restore to stock or maybe hot rod project? Looking forward to seeing where you take it.

Well, if you won't let me have it, I'll put in my .02 cents.
I like the cross-matched hood. If you beef up the engine, you could turn the hole into a ram air set up, like the ProjectX Bel Air. Smoothies. Get some smoothies!
I can't wait.

Thanks for the kind words guys
My plan is to clean it up nice. I've got a 350 on a stand in the garage that will replace the tired 350 that's in it.
I found a couple of picture online that I'd like to do to mine.
This guy did an awesome job on his. I just hope mine will look as half as good as his.

I like the look. I would just change the grill on the finished pics to body color. The chrome makes it look to much like teeth.

Man I like the direction your taking it. I really like those old panel trucks and cant wait to see some pics as you get started on your project.

Cant wait to see the pics, although I disagree with one of the other posters. Go with the chrome grill, but thats along way off.
