I assumed your car is a DeLuxe (trim items are missing on your car in the photos). If indeed it is a 2 dr. Custom Suburban,then it is a lot rarer. It would have had "Custom Suburban" badges on the tailfins. I didn't see holes for those badges in the photos,but of course none were closeups of the upper fin area. What's left of the side trim would be consistent with a Custom Suburban, but this trim was also available optionally on DeLuxe Suburbans. Interesting that all of those 1959 2 door Custom Suburbans were V8's. The 1960 and '61 2-door wagons were all DeLuxe Suburbans,then all wagons were 4-door in 1962.
