What is the best family hauler? Pro Touring Texas has that figured out with this ’78 Suburban.
This ‘Burb still rocks the factory paint which has been buffed and waxed back to its former glory. It’s a one owner truck with a mere 73K on the odometer before it rolled inside the Pro Touring Texas shop for some sweet sweet lovin’.
Since there wasn’t anything to do to the outside, all the magic happens right under the hood, Pro Touring Texas style. Naturally the stock SBC was kicked out like a redheaded step child in favor of some LSX power. This LS sports a Brian Tooley Racing custom cam, Chevrolet Performance LS9 heads, and the best part – a huge Borg Warner turbo feed by the Holley turbo manifolds. That’s right, a turbo charged ‘Burb. Now you know why we call it the Family Haul-Asser. The powerhouse is backed by a Stage 3 Jakes Performance 4L80E transmission. The dual factory A/C still works to keep you cool inside while the radiator from Champion Cooling keeps things cool under the hood.
To get the ‘ol gal riding and sitting right, a set of Viking Performance double-adjustable shocks were mounted up at all four corners and a set of Belltech drop spindles installed. The suspension was gone through with all new Moog bushings and ball joints. Lastly, a set of Coy’s C33 wheels finishes off the look.
“Honey, you aren’t getting some muscle car, we need a family car!” Don’t listen to this negativity. This ‘Burb can haul the whole family or click off passes down the drag strip. The ultimate Family Haul-Asser. The best part of it all? It’s for sale. Give us a call at (817) 832-3278 to talk about getting this beast in your garage.
