Wow, Herb, that is one sweet looking combination of trailer and TV. I like your two toned color combination. Do you happen to know what the factory options were for paint choices back in 1964?

We will probably have more questions once we get into the restoration. Thanks for the additional forum links.

There's a data plate on my 63 on the kick panel that has the color code. I couldn't find the list of color codes tonight though. Also most of my literature is for the 63. I did find a 64 color chip chart. See below. Also I am including a link to a 64 carryall brochure.

Thanks for the color chart. Do you know how the color options worked with regards to one color vs. two? For example, if I wanted a two-color combination, like the blue and white color combination shown on the first page of the brochure, how do I know which colors were offered for the two-color combo? Were there restrictions on what the two color choices were? Were their restrictions on which colors could be chosen for the top half and which colors for the bottom half?

Thanks for the link to the brochure. I also received a pristine copy of that brochure as part of the sale of the Suburban.

I think all the tutones were one of the colors on the chart and the white (or ivory). The top was white and the color split was probably like what's in the brochure. The color split line changes each year in the early 60s. Of course you an do what you like now. Mine is different as white should be on the top with the split line at the bottom of the windows.

Any update on the Suburban? It would appear that there are more and more folks using or building these great vehicles for their TV. There was a late 50's 4WD version for sale a few weeks back and it was gone in a few days. Also saw a '64, heavily modified and done up more for show than for use as a TV, up for grabs and it appeared on once and was gone so I suppose it also sold.

Yes, there are updates. We are in the process of assessing the condition of the truck and will be starting work in earnest after the International Rally. (Right now, we are focused on finishing up our Bambi II restoration for the upcoming Perry trip.)

We picked up a parts truck last month which will provide us with a hood, 327 engine, windshield wipers, full gauge cluster, rear end (axle & differential) and more (still assessing what we can take off the donor truck).

The short list of work we have planned is:
  • Converting manual steering ==> power steering
  • Manual brakes ==> power brakes
  • Converting front drum brakes ==> disc brakes
  • Adding two speed windshield wipers
  • Swapping the 230 straight six with 327 V-8
  • Body work
  • Adding A/C
  • Adding lap-style seat belts
  • Swapping manual column shift to automatic column shift
  • Swapping manual transmission with an automatic transmission

Yukionna,

thanks for the update. Those are all the fun things to do on a TV, in my mind at least. You were fortunate to be able to acquire a spare parts truck with at least some of the parts you need. I'm a gearhead and have greatly enjoyed bringing vehicles back to live over the years so I'm always interested in other people's projects.

Barry

Boy, what a fun project. Had one in the early 70's. Pulled the engine and trans and droped in a 427 big block and a truck 4 speed. prety much a bolt in swap.Did have to trim the drive shaft. That thing could light the tires in all four gears and pull, there was no stopping it. Painted in red with a white top and installed black Corvair bucket seats, did the rear seats in black rolled and pleated. Painted the inside and trimed the flat panels in wooh. Only problem, burnt the tires off the rear wheels having "fun"... Go for it!!!! Pinehurst

Yukionna,

Its great to see you moving forward. I just added front pwr disk brakes. This upgrade is a must for towing. The burb came with a 454 and Th400 transmission. Just a heads up the wiring is a little different when you change from a warning light cluster to a gauge cluster. I'm just about done wit this part. The kitchen remodel is slowing me down a bit.... Have fun!

I'd say everything, Yukionna, but not quite. Many 50's cars and trucks, all needing some level of repair beyond basic maintenance and this is all a hobby - most I've hot rodded. A few include 32 Ford truck was my first wheeled vehicle, also had 32 Ford and Chev tudors, 46, 47, 48, 51 Fords, many 50's Pontiac's, Chevrolet's (cars and trucks), 60's Chev's, Fords and Pontiac's, Buick, olds cars, wagons and trucks. Drag raced for many years, mostly Camaro's, have had many corvette's, chevelles, a couple of mustangs - it's a disease with me according to my wife - who was a very desirable person to date in high school because her older brothers were hotrodders. Being a young person the only way to gain access to their shop and tools and knowledge was to be part of the family. She rolls her eyes whenever I tell anyone that's why I started dating her in grade 10.

Currently we have the '57 Pontiac wagon we've had since 1981 and it was a totaled car when we got it. We've put a lot of miles on it and currently have a '77 Firebird transam frame clip up front, a mix of GTO and transam powertrain, and in the wings we are slowly restoring a 70 SS chevelle the twin to one we had in 70 and is my wife's favorite of all the cars we have had besides the wagon. It is intended to be her toy when done.

I do enjoy tearing into them and prefer to add later model suspensions and powertrains for safety and dependability reasons. It's nice to have an old vehicle, just not much fun if it's less than 100% dependable so I do as much as I can to make sure that it is as reliable as our daily drivers. There's still an occasional glitch, but few and far between (where's some wood to knock on).

Barry

Quite some time ago, someone out there sent a picture of their grandfathers 59 or 60 Buick they were going to restore and use for towing; If that came to pass, how about showing us some pictures; make me green with envy -thats my dream someday-sadly I don't have a mechanical bone in my body, so am jealous of all of you who do-keep the pictures coming; happy trails;

It is in process

We have the Buick. Check out where we are on our blog:

Sweet Sovereign of the Road

We are currently mounting it on a 1975 Trailering Special Suburban with a 454 power plant. We hope to be driving it around in about 2 weeks working out the kinks.

We also just bought a 1990 Suburban for a tow vehicle as well.

Let me know what you think.
