Age Defying: 1961 Chevrolet C10 Suburban Project – $7,000

Jul 2020 | Classifinds, Wagon Wednesday

Hidden in the woods of Englishtown, New Jersey and just listed yesterday here on Craigslist is what we believe to be a 1961 Chevrolet C10 Suburban  project with an asking price of $7,000.  The seller incorrectly listed this Suburban as a 1981 model, so you’ll need to confirm with him what vintage it truly is.  Like it or not, Action Line Chevrolets continue to rise in value, so while that price may seem staggering for a non-running truck parked long ago in the woods, a check of the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller has his C10 priced $2,000 below the current #4 “Fair” estimate of $9,000.  Additionally, researching the NADA Guides Classic Car Online Valuation Tool reveals the current “Low”, “Average”, and “High” retail value range of these fifth generation Suburbans to be $11,450, $26,000, and $52,300, respectively.  If you are serious about buying this C10 Suburban as the base for your next project, you can start the conversation by either calling or texting the seller at (973) 580-1066 and when you do please remember to mention you saw his Suburban featured here on

Good luck with the purchase!
