1983 Chevy Suburban 9 seater Silverado wagon
The Canyonaro… my adventure bus! This 83 Suburban 9 seater Silverado was imported into Australia and RHD converted in the early 90’s, i have photos of it and the bare metal respray it had before i got it along with brochures and sales info in a folder and it must have been a pretty big deal in its day and would have cost a small fortune… I have heard the Suburbans are quite rare and the conversion bompanies had to buy a RHD Silverado ute cab through GMH for the conversion. Anywho, we bought it as a stock Mum and Dad car that had just been a family bus all it’s life, jacked up, shit wheels and no real style… Till we drug it up to QLD and got it into the 782 garage… Now i got this truck cos from factory it’s a fully loaded and runs a 350 v8 with a 700R 4 speed automatic, we have lowered it with drop spindles on the front and a C notched rear end with air bags and sits on new 18″ smoothie wheels, we also added the wood-grain panelling… You can drive this truck anywhere, super reliable, and has taken me and my family out to the Opal Mines and a few trips down to Sydney and back, trailered the hot rod to shows and everything in between… it’s super fun and is a genuine 9 seater with clip out rear seat, flat folding centre row and rolled out the factory with power windows, power tailgate, central locking, cruise control, special order 9 seater, deluxe interior, power steering, dual air con that works separately as two units, one in dash, one over head in the rear that’s recently had a couple of thousand spent on it, over riders, CD player, cup holders and 40 gallon, 152L fuel tank… I love having a truck around like this and it’s been my adventure bus for some time. I have a Chevy van that i’ve left in America for the last 6 years but with importing quieting down i’m bringing it home, i’ve done 24 States of America in that van and it will become my adventure bus for here in Australia once it arrives…
Typically located at SEVEN82MOTORS Classic’s, Lowriders & Muscle cars at 132 Spencer Road, Nerang on the Gold Coast, Queensland but could be at my house… or out on an adventure… so best to call first if you’re travelling to view.
