Purchased by it's original and only California owners at 'Ron Baker Chevrolet' of Los Gato, CA on 6/7/1977 and to be sold with it's original owners manuals and dealers sellers warranty.

The C20 3/4 ton truck was optioned with the heavy-duty rear springs and shocks which raised the GVW from the C10's 6,400 to 7,500 pounds. The obvious difference between the C10 and the C20 is that one is a half-ton and the other a three-quarter-ton truck. These classifications don't refer to their respective curb weights but rather to their payload capacity. Payload capacity is the difference between a vehicles curb weight and its weight capacity, so the total weight of cargo that each can ideally carry. Over time that definition has become less literal and exists more as a way of distinguishing respective capacity. There's a lot to be said about pickup sizes and how they've changed over time, but what it boils down to is that C20's are heavier and subsequently capable of towing a greater weight. The C10 was no lightweight, capable of hauling anywhere between 4,000 and 6,000 pounds easily depending on which engine and other options you selected, but the C20 could haul significantly more. The C10 most often came with a semi-floating rear suspension as opposed to the C20s full floating rear suspension. A full floating rear suspension means that the vehicle weight is carried on the axle casing rather than on the half shafts which are instead allowed to float inside the assembly. A full floating suspension design means that the C20 can safely carry bigger loads; it also means that in the event of an accident the wheel will not necessarily come off with the axle, which is a nice safety feature. C20s also frequently came with substantially heavier duty springs and often were available with options like a heavy-duty stabilizer bar that the C10 did'nt have access to.
Recently purchased from its original California owner with absolutely signs or history of any accidents and a truck which was always reportedly garaged and which was obviously always lovingly maintained and kept since new and never used for towing. The truck comfortably seats nine people with the optional 3rd row seat! It has it's original paint, interior and wheels with brand new tires. This truck must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - the original 350 V8 engine is extremely strong and responsive, the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool. Recently fully serviced with a rebuilt carburetor, transmission service, differential service, rotor cap and spark plugs, all new belts, brake master cylinder, radiator and hoses.
In summary, this is one very fine all original unrestored and all stock example of this increasingly collectible and desirable 1977 year of the legendary full size C20 Suburban SUV in rare turn-key ready, daily appreciating, daily driving and daily head-turning condition and an all time classic American truck with it's original 350 V8 engine and fully loaded with factory options!
