This was the car that Tony Soprano used in the first seasons of the TV show the Sopranos before he switched to the Cadillac Escalade. I took this video in Las Vegas. While it isn’t a classic it is pretty cool to see this up close.
This car was auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson. Below are the details. You can see the auction info on Barrett-Jackson’s page
This 1999 Chevrolet Suburban was the actual vehicle utilized in the award-winning HBO series “The Sopranos” by the main character, Tony Soprano, portrayed by the late actor James Gandolfini. Owners after Tony Soprano are left an autographed message within driver’s side sun visor: “Be Nice To My Car – James Gandolfini.” Only two identical Suburbans were purchased new by Movie Time Cars who provided vehicles to Soprano Productions Inc.
The Suburban includes a letter from the CEO of Movie Time Cars documenting use of the vehicle during film production. This particular Suburban was utilized for interior-shots enhancing its desirability due to the known presence of approximately a dozen actors and actresses seen inside and around the vehicle. As the interior-shot vehicle, this Suburban was utilized for the signature introductory scene of Tony Soprano driving home through New Jersey during the opening credits beginning every episode.
Other notable scenes include rescuing Christopher Moltisanti and Paulie Gualtieri from the woods in “Pine Barrens,” the assassination attempt on Tony Soprano in “Isabella,” and driving Salvatore Bonpensiero to disappear after Tony discovers Salvatore is providing the FBI with information in “Fun House.” Also included is a selection of significant screen-used props and production items.
Notable screen-used items include wardrobe pieces worn by Christopher Moltisanti, FBI photos used to track mob rankings, the Key Largo wall-hanging seen during the explosive scene between Tony and Carmela in “Whitecaps,” and the actual statue of Saint Elzear in “The Ride.” Notable production items include a confidential script of the last episode “Made in America” and twenty production set blueprints. The props and production items include letters of authenticity directly from individuals involved in the show.
