  Lannon Fire Department
GMC Suburban

Should we have any collectors of antique trucks wandering the site here...

Lannon Fire Department 1958-1959 P100 GMC Suburban

To be auctioned in the near future. This GMC Suburban has less than 20,000 actual miles on it. It was originally a Civil Defense vehicle, acquired by the Lannon Fire Department in 1966. Vehicle is all original, in running order, still in service as a brush fighting unit of the Lannon Fire Department.

Proceeds from sale of this vehicle will go to the LFD Equipment Replacement Fund.

If you may be interested in the '55 - '59 model Chevy - GMC Suburban, this is one sweet vehicle from what I understand. There is a full photo section on the links provided herein. It is my understanding that they will have a form up to submit detailed questions on this unit to the Lannon Fire Department. In the meantime if you guys want to post them here, I'll try and answer them or get my contact there, in here to answer them for you.

As for approximate worth of this vehicle... GMC only made somewhere around 1,000 of these vehicles from 1955 - 1959. To find one in this condition, w/4 wheel drive, and with less than 20,000 miles is extremely rare!
