1953 Suburban - The Detailer

CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE invites you to see this 1953 Suburban and other special vehicles as CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE Presents the CAR CRAFT Summer Nationals in St. Paul MN July 20-22.


Being one of the oldest living nameplates in the United States, the Suburban has been a cornerstone for Chevrolet and the American truck market. With Chevrolet commemorating 100 years of history, the Performance Division put together this distinctive enthusiast “nod” to the rich history of the Chevrolet brand and the legacy of the Suburban. Capitalizing on the storage functionality of the 1953 Suburban, the concept of the ultimate vehicle detailing machine was derived. GM Design Center and the Performance Division covered all of the “details” with this awesome ride including an LSX crate motor and LSA supercharger kit from GM Performance Parts, powering this master machine to 665 horsepower and 610 ft. lbs. of torque. The rear storage unit contains all functional “Detailer” components including a water reservoir, air compressor and generator for powering all the detailing tools.
