Some of you may remember a former Tech Editor Craig Perronne. Craig left Four Wheeler in 2004 to work for another magazine. Unfortunatly Craig took his 1971 Chevy Suburban project with him.
Fortunatly Feature Editor Robin Stover was able to purchase the Super Burb from Craig last week.
We're not sure exactly what direction to take with this project, but whatever we do, it's going to be cool.
The building blocks are already in place:
Vehicle-1971 3-door Suburban 4x4
Engine- HT 383 Stroker built by GM Performance Parts
Transmission-Advance Adapters sourced NV4500
Transfer Case- Rebuilt NP 205
Rear Axle- ORU Prepped 14-Bolt with Detroit No Spin diff
Front Axle- Dana 44 with OX Locker
Wheels/Tires- 16-inch Procomps/ 35-inch Xterrains
Other goodies: Aluminum radiator, new drive shafts, new silver paint job, Rhyno lined quarter panels, MSD distributor, and a 6-inch Superlift Suspension system.
What would you like to see us do with the SuperBurb?
Fire off an e-mail with suggestion. We'll consider anything.
