NEW ISSUE - The November/December issue of Vintage Truck magazine will be available in subscriber mailboxes and on newsstands soon. Our cover story about a 1966 Chevrolet Suburban was written by Candace Brown, with photos by Al Rogers.
Each generation of humans hopes the next will carry on the family name with pride and respect, and the same is true of vehicles. None have done so better than the Chevrolet Suburban family. After 82 years and many generations of design changes, this clan continues to honor its great heritage. Our featured 1966 Chevrolet Suburban represents the final year of the 1960–1966 generation. By the time this ’66 left the factory, the Suburban line had already existed for three decades and would go on to enjoy a longer production run than any other vehicle in automotive history.
It continues today.
This particular 6-passenger example, built on the Chevrolet Custom C-10 platform, belongs to a collection of approximately 425 pre-1990 vehicles owned by the Eagles Mere Auto Museum in North Central Pennsylvania. The collection includes more than 75 cars and trucks from the 1950s and 1960s. Although popular with visitors, this Suburban is not always in view. Even with the museum’s two levels of floor space, the size of the collection prohibits having every piece on display at once.
