1966 Chevrolet Suburban "Lime Crush"
Built by for the 50th Anniversary of Mr. Gasket, Roadster Shop transformed an ordinary 1966 Chevrolet Suburban into a modernized show vehicle with throwback surfwagon styling, big block power, and a killer chassis.Cleaned up classic lines tilt a hat to the past and show off what top level car builders are capable of creating.. The paint and body work by Charlie Hutton are something that only seeing the truck in person can express. The truck is the definition of "straight" bodywork covered in expertly applied base coat and seriously finessed clearcoat. Nearly every panel on the truck has been modified by the Roadster Shop to create a totally unique and custom look.
Exterior modifications include: smoothed and tucked front bumper custom fabricated grill modified fender/hood openings custom inner fenders and radiator close out eliminated fender to cowl seams a smoothed firewall, shaved door handles 1 piece door glass flush mounted side glass flush mounted windshield and back glass stretched and reshaped wheel openings reshaped and tucked rear bumper Fuel filler mounted behind tail light Custom PPG "Mr. Gasket Green" paint by Charlie Hutton
As soon as you open of the doors of Lime Crush, the level of custom work is as intoxicating as the smell of rich leather that pours out. Custom teak floors flow from the back tailgate all the way up the the fire wall of the truck. Tweed and woven leather accents compliment the rich caramel leather seats. The design is cohesive and you get the feeling that Chevy could have almost built an interior like this back in the 60's.

The engine is a tried and true Chevy ZZ502 crate motor, expertly adapted to run on the Accel FI system. Without pause is fires up every time and slides into a nice and burbly, big block idle. Cooling the system is a Ron Davis aluminum radiator, and the transmission is a beefy 4l85E overdrive unit. Exhaust flows through Sanderson headers into a Flowmaster 3" stainless set up which is tucked cleanly under the chassis.

The Fast Track chassis is a functional piece of art the transforms Lime Crush from any over the top show truck into a sharp handling, wonderful riding machine. Beyond the precision welds and slick constructions put a lot of features on the table. The independent front suspension uses tubular control arms, Penske Racing shocks, power rack and pinion steering to create a tight and precise feel. The rear end is a rock solid for 4-bar that is confident under hard acceleration, and nobody is going to argue with the Strange 9".
