Herb's 'Burb - 1963 was a Very Good Year!
Herb Spies bought this beautiful 1963 Chevrolet Suburban CarryAll in 2005 proving that eBay is a dangerous place to go.
The original 292 six-cylinder power plant had been replaced with a 305 small-block and Turbo 350 transmission. It is also equipped with mid '80s power brakes and power steering.
The exterior has been painted sometime since 2000 and one of Herb's next projects is to get the interior up to speed.
As you can see here, it has the modern conveniences: air conditioning, radios -AM AND FM with CD player, center console, custom gauges, etc, etc.....
In 2000, Herb acquired this 1963 Airstream Globetrotter. As you can see, Herb has mastered the art of polishing aluminum!
So far (as of Jan 2007), the longest trip Herb has taken in his rig has been 2000 miles from his Shalimar, Florida home.
Before they upgraded to the Suburban, Herb and Sidra towed the Airstream with their '57 Chevy Station Wagon.
Herb and his family enjoy going to Vintagetrailer events. Check out Tin Can Tourists at tincantourists.com. If they give prizes I'll bet Herb wins a first place every time!!
Herb is presently looking for a 5.3/4L60 drive train from a newer Suburban/Tahoe to replace the old 305/350.
