Resources to purchase an older/vintage Suburban??

Does any one have any good resources (other then the dreaded Ebay) to find an older/vintage Suburban to purchase as a dedicated TV for my 65 Overlander? Are there any particular model years that I should stay away from?

Try some of the following:

Cars on

For a start at least. As for eBay, for some folks they have great success, others not so much. I've done okay, a friend has had miserable luck.

Good luck with your search. As for what to buy, I'd be looking for one with as many options as possible as it's likely that it was used more for towing than for hard work, or that's my humble opinion.
