I'm ordering the above items from memory, I'm not stateside at this time. Any suggestions on something I might have missed that's a common problem on the SEARS Suburbans?

Thanks!

I hope so!:fing32: Been in storage for over 10 years now, so gonna be a lot of work to get her going again.

Here's some history on the Suburban 15.

It's a family heirloom from my Uncle Floyd and Aunt Mildred. Hope they smile down from heaven when I roll her out of the barn under it's own power for the first time!

*Corrected Info* Sub. 15 manufactured around 1972 "Parts Ordered"

Sears only made the SS, and the Suburban 15 one year. 1972

Well bust my bubble!:banghead3

What you are saying is most likely true, read your posted link before and was wondering why the 15 was not listed back in 1969! I was going by what I remember my uncle telling me and my memory is not the best. LOL! My wife couldn't find the serial# tag when she looked and I will not be home for months to look for myself. The original owner's manual has 2059R-17.1.72 printed on the pages per my wife (just asked her in chat room for the printed date on the manual), so I'm guessing that the manual was printed 17th day of Jan., 1972 (??).

I know it's only a Suburban 15 and not an "SS15" but wasn't able to find the 15's decal set and I like the brushed Aluminum plate set that Vintage Reproductions was manufacturing. I'll install shiny hub caps and a cigarette lighter and call it an SS.:drunkie:


I'd better change my post title!

Thanks!
