Want to be the coolest soccer mom or dad in the neighborhood? Ditch that minivan or your fancy three-row crossover utility thing and consider the Pick of the Day, a 1964 GMC Suburban Custom being offered on ClassicCars.com by a dealer in Collierville, Tennessee.

“This is the rust-free California classic that everyone wishes they could find,” the dealer notes in the Suburban’s advertisement. “This rare 1964 GMC Suburban Custom draws a crowd wherever it goes, from car shows to Holiday Parades.

“Power is provided by a strong running factory 305ci V6. That’s right, it’s not a typo! The GMC 305ci V6 was used exclusively in GMC pickups and suburbans, and was known for being very torquey for its size. The smooth shifting ‘three on the tree’ manual transmission and factory power steering make it a fun truck to drive.”

The dealer says the truck is “straight and solid, with no notable signs of rust.”

Nonetheless, while it’s “not perfect, the beautiful Blue Pearl and White finish presents well, with only a few minor blemishes.”

The ad adds that the truck can be driven and enjoyed, or offers potential for restoration or customization. That customization already was begun with 22-inch “smoothie” wheels and a slightly lowered suspension.

The GMC has leather power front bucket seats from a late-model SUV and its original fabric second and third rows. The ad notes that the heater doesn’t work and that the truck is set up for air conditioning but the installation has not been completed.
