Not a whole lot of info, looks really solid though. That said, the tailgate seems to have a lot of rust (trapped water?) in it and there isn't enough pictures to tell what the car might look like underneath.

A rare beast indeed!  

Only 1,300 made and I bet the survival numbers are very, very low by comparison.

I was looking at that Sid!  I couldn't tell, though!  Was it the distributer location or something else that confirms?

But the only big block available in the Suburban was the D-500 361 - I don't think that's under the hood.

The Ram-Fire 350 was only available in the Custom Royal.

I thought it might be a Super Red Ram 325 (small block)

All 1958 Dodge wagons were equipped with the new-for-58 "B" engine. The 350CI Ram Fire was standard unless the D500 option was selected; then it would be the 361CI engine. No six cylinder or 325 poly V8's went into 58 Dodge wagons.

Doesn't the distributor at the front point to a "B" block?

Aha!  Thanks, all!  My mind is always stuck with the standard passenger cars!

This Suburban looks like a very solid candidate for restoration.  Just a very rare sight.

I have seen the car in person and remember it having lots of rust in the floorboards. I is a very rusty car using Arizona standards. ( by New England standards, this is a very good car!) This car is at their Phoenix lot where the deals are much harder to make than at their Casa Grande lot. I purchased a 57 Dodge 4 door wagon from the Casa Grande lot several years ago. It was incomplete and mostly stripped, but the body, rockers and floors had very little rust. I bought it for under $1000. I'm using this body to restore my Loaded 57 Firesweep Explorer with a rusty body that was stored in a leaky barn in Wyoming for 40 or 50 years. Water rusted through the roof and then rusted AWAY the A pillars and floors. The rest of the car is really nice, so this Dodge body is perfect for my needs.
The Casa Grande lot has a 58 Plymouth 2 door wagon missing motor, transmission and most exterior trim for $1400. At least it was there a few months ago. It is a much more solid car.
I have a son in Mesa and go to the Casa Grande lot every time I visit. I'll be there again in 2 weeks, but I do not go to the Phoenix lot nearly as much as the Casa Grande lot.

Only the second one I've seen. Here's a link to one that was in Dallas a few years back. Tinted glass and A/C, rare for a cheapie wagon!

The 58 Plymouth 2 door wagon is still at the Casa Grande location. I saw it there last Monday. Parts are disappearing, but it is still mostly complete.

Ask for Nick. He is the guy at the Casa Grande location who runs that location for Desert Valley. I was amazed to see so much more Forward Look stuff gone when I was there Monday. So many cars and parts are disappearing right now. Get whatever you need now! there is no tomorrow

Hopefully, it went to someone who appreciates how rare it is and won't be cut up to make a Sweptside truck!

Well I wasn't going to post these, but since you brought up FL's being cut up and turned into trucks, check out this Chrysler I saw at DVAP when I was there. Note the corrugated roof metal used for the bed!
