Brings back memories. Though I never owned one they were all over the place back then . Nice shape ! I had an 85 K-20 pick up that I absolutely loved but rust called it home. Never an issue and ran great until I traded it.

Looks to me like a money pit, unless your a mechanic.

My Suburban just hit 200K.  Get your mechanic to give it a thorough going over, drive it, put it into 4WD, check the heater fans and motor - everything!  Ask for maint. records.  I hunt out of a 2001 and love it!  I can get 3 24 x 36 crates, 3 people, all our gear, etc... for a full day hunt inside. plus, on hot days - AC to keep dogs cool.  Good luck!

Ive had 3 Burbs and currently have a 2010. Love every one of them. Not sure why you would want one that old. You can have a much newer one for that money. They are all essentially the same size inside with a little different ways the seats fold or remove etc. Spare used to be stored inside so my current Burb actually has more interior space. The advantage might only be the ability to work on the motor.  Simpler times back then.

I rather like the old school design and simplicity. I guess that's the appeal.  But maybe despite the low mileage it's simply too expensive to maintain.

Unless your looking for a collector, this is over priced for its age.  You can buy newer that will get better mileage, leather seats that clean up better, and newer features for similar dollars.  For a hunting rig I want something that doesn't need repairs during the season.

That one's more for the limb swatters gets you closer to the tree's in case you haven't practice your shooting enough. Or just put a drop down ramp in the back.

A couple chairs installed in the bed would make it a safari car.

I was thinking two big swivel armchairs with seat belts, of course.
