Amazing find! 77k documented original miles on this beautifully restored 25-year old Tahoe LT. Kept garaged in Colorado as a private vacation home vehicle for most of its life, and only used when owner was in town. The LT model came with leather seats and nice luxury options. Just completed a thorough restoration, documented with invoices. Comes with two key FOB's and original owners manual. No accidents or damage reported on the clean Car Fax.
Pro shop body work and fresh base/clear repaint in beautiful metallic White Gold Effect. Custom black pin-striping that matches the new rims and other black trim. All factory tinted window glass and roof rack are good condition. Door seal rubber and weather stripping are pliable.
New chrome bumpers front and rear.
New grille, retaining the original gold bowtie Chevy emblem.
New LED/Halogen headlight and tail light kit.
New Bosch Pure Vision custom windshield wipers.
New American Outlaw 20-inch wheels.
New Land Golden 275/55/20 All Season radial tires.
Original dash, seats, carpets, door panels, and headliner are in very nice condition. Original color-coded durable GM rubber floor mats. Electrical system completely evaluated, repairs accomplished as needed. All dash features, gauges, climate control, window motors, seat motors, power mirrors, courtesy lights, etc. are functional. Original AC Delco AM/FM Cassette/CD audio system with custom EQ. These are exceptional sound systems with crisp highs and low end punch, and this comment is coming from me, a professional recording engineer.
The drive train and suspension have been gone through from stem to stern, with hoses, belts, wires, gaskets, mounts, and fluids changed as needed. Full tune-up and new fuel injection system. New upper control arms with ball joint and bushings. New brakes and shocks. New battery. 4WD is fully functional.
Undercarriage and engine bay are astonishingly clean and rust free as the photos show. This Tahoe is basically in showroom condition.

This MINT Tahoe may be one of the lowest mileages in the country for an SUV from the late 90's era. OBD (On Board Diagnostics which began in 1996), make mechanical issues easy to diagnose. Parts for these popular SUV's are readily available and will be for years. Dependable daily driver, roomy road trip cruiser, she's a great value, given that a new Tahoe can go for $60k to $80k. And while the new ones will depreciate, this now collectable SUV will continue to go UP in value. I know because the 65 modern classics I have restored for investor clients over the last ten years are ALL valued higher today. Now's the time.
