Recently, the brake master cylinder and rear wheel cylinders have been replaced. There are some service records, as well as owner’s manuals, and a clean title. It also appears to have been a rear dent repaired at some point in time. There are also the expected signs of wear and tear, as well as some water damage on the front seat bottoms. In addition, while the odometer shows a little under 24,000 miles, it’s probably rolled over at some point in time, and there’s no way to know exactly how many miles are on this 1976 GMC Suburban Sierra.

If you love classic cars, and especially older Suburbans like this one, you might want to jump at the opportunity to own this rare 1976 Suburban Sierra. Of course, the price is likely higher than it would be under different circumstances, as there is a massive car shortage. That’s making everything more expensive. Yet if this is the SUV you’ve always dreamed about, then you just might want to head over to Bring a Trailer and make a bid while you still can.
