Here’s Your Opportunity to Own a Ten-Door Chevy Suburban Limousine
If you’ve been in the market for a used Chevrolet Suburban ten-door limousine, we have some good news for you. We admit, there are some hurdles you’ll have to jump through to purchase the rare find – which begs the question – how badly do you want it? GM Authority caught the unusual and rare limo while browsing Yahoo Auctions in Japan, of all places. It’s hard enough to find one of these cool rigs in the U.S., so you can imagine our excitement to see one at all.
Once Google translate did its job, we discovered the Chevrolet Suburbans were used as airport shuttles at one point or another, meaning they likely hosted some important diplomats or stars. Once we saw the photos, we could tell the limos had been retired for quite some time.
As fate would have it, these prime examples of American ingenuity sit abandoned in an overgrown junkyard near Kyoto, waiting patiently to find their forever home. From experience, we can tell you that Suburbans are Unbreakable. So the opportunity to buy one? It’s certainly piqued our interest.
With that said, they’re waiting for a new owner. Despite their commonality in the states as airport shuttles, we haven’t seen one of these in quite some time. Maybe if you purchase one, you’ll find some information in the glove box that solves this mystery. Let us know if you do.
It’s time that they come back to the homeland to enjoy some wide-open roads and take advantage of their massive size. These limos are big enough to live in as you travel across the country, with some minor revisions, of course. Think of the possibilities, but don’t think of how many door sills you’ll have to wash.
Fortunately, you might be in luck as the limos are going for a reasonable 1,000,000 yen, roughly translating to $9,000. Where you might run into trouble is the shipping and import fees. Keep in mind that there are many uses for such a vehicle.
If you’ve been looking to fulfill a lifelong dream, this might be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for, so act now before it’s too late.
