It'd be a Suburban 12.  I have one with the newer style seat - thinking mine is a '68 or '69 model. 

There is a pic of mine in the registry

<br /><br />I have a feeling I forgot to answer a pm from you a while back, was it regarding belts or something?? I don't know any belt lengths, usually just take them in and match them up.
