Audio & Electronics
The 1972 Chevrolet Suburban is an SUV from another era. Big motor, big body, meant to carry big families to the woods for big fun! Richard Griot certainly understood that concept when he found this ‘Burb and undertook a one-year, frame-off restoration.
With an extensive original options list, this truck was clearly prized by its original owner. Richard sought to stay true to the rig’s first life, while adding tasteful and practical modifications for convenience and comfort.
History of this Vehicle
The truck was nearly rust and accident free, and was sprayed its original Tangier Orange and white scheme. Inside, the stock seats were replaced with units from a 2000 Suburban, then covered in Camaro orange-and-black houndstooth. A modern entertainment system was added, including monitors front and rear. Richard’s Suburban is powered by a GM crate 350, putting out 350hp. Dual batteries were installed, and the air conditioning system was re-plumbed for better-than-new performance.
