Day 3 of Wagon Week…
Is this 1960 GMC Custom Suburban really a station wagon? Well, a full complement of side windows and three rows of seats would seem to say, yes. (It was also available as a panel van, sans all the windows save those in the doors.) Based on the GMC pickup, the Suburban (or Model 1001) was available with a choice of two different rear door configurations: the typical station wagon setup, with a lift-up window and drop-down tailgate, or what GMC called “rear doors,” which was a pair of center-hinged doors which opened to either side. Also available was the Model K1001 which came with 4-wheel-drive in both the Suburban and panel van versions. Saw this nice example late last summer at a weekly Cruising on the Q event on Queen Street in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
