1967-1972 Chevy Suburban New Product Line
1967-1972 Chevy Suburban Product Line Introduction
The Chevy Suburban nameplate goes back to 1935 and was originally named the Carryall Suburban. It was developed to be a workhorse that could car a load of either workmen or working equipment in a covered environment. The popularity and toughness spread the Carryall to be used for many different types of businesses including short-distance delivery, flower shops, butcher shops, laborers of all types, and infinitely more. If it could fit into the back, the Carryall would take it no problem.
The Suburban grew in popularity among the crowd that used it as a people mover due to its spacious size and utilitarian composition. It was used both in town and out on the trail for moving people from place to place. Over the years, the popularity never waned and was eventually just shortened to Suburban but the Spartan interior choices really never changed either. The factory-supplied just enough interior covers to keep the metal box from echoing too harshly, but as any recent owner will tell you those panels and carpets have been lost to time.
With the front cab section of the 1967-1972 Suburban being the same as the 3rd gen C10, fitment for the Suburban was easy with the molded door panels already developed! Well it looked easy at first. The real work came when TMI took a look at the rear seating area and the cargo area of the Suburban. The three-door passenger seating and rear cargo area presented their own problems, but the TMI team persevered. The passenger-side third door panel was developed separately from the driver's side as there is no door on the driver’s side, while two different carpet kits were developed to offer a soft landing for the passengers and to protect the cargo bed floor. TMI also developed side panels for the cargo area as well as a rear tailgate cover. There were two different options for accessibility to the cargo area on the Suburban with the barn door style, as well as the split tailgate and rear window configuration. TMI chose the tailgate-style as there seem to be more of those on the road currently.
More and more Suburbans are being resurrected and their popularity is gaining due to their ability to carry friends and family plus a full day of gear and food to whatever outing is on the agenda, plus they are cool! TMI wanted to give more options to build up these people movers and give their own line of interior products.
