    Nice choice for a project truck but I dont think many of them survived. Back then when you bought a vehicle of that size it was bought and normally used for a purpose, not like today where most trucks are just a family sedan with a bed that never gets used.
    My Dad had a 66 Suburban when we moved to the Philipeans in 66, by time we came back to the U.S. in 70 that poor truck was ready for replacement, we had 9 kids in the family and we were rough on that truck not to mention the road conditions over there, I remember the guys at the Port of San Francisco laughing about "who would ship a truck that beat up half way around the world" but it was one of the few vehicles that could haul our whole family.

    When I was looking for vehicles, the nationwide craigslist search engines were my best friend! Go to yahoo or google and use the search term "nationwide craigslist search". Try one or more of the available links... all are free, but some search better than others.
