1966 Chevrolet Suburban AKA Lime Crush

Starting bid: $1,000

Up for auction is this beautiful truck that has been professionally built by The Roadster Shop who is well known as one of the most reputable builders in the country today. This 66 Chevy has been featured in multiple magazines and has made it’s way around the custom car show circuit with flying colors. The lime crush was featured at The SEMA show and was a sponsored build by Mr Gasket.

Reshaped, smoothed, and tucked front and rear bumpers give this Chevy a clean look coming and going. All four wheel openings were then stretched and reshaped to give the bottom half of the truck a custom touch. The top half features shaved door handles, a modified hood and fenders, and one-piece, flush-mounted glass all the way around. Under the hood, a completely smooth firewall was created to give all the attention to the big-block that would soon reside there. After some final touches, the body went into the paint booth and received a coat of custom-mixed PPG “Mr. Gasket Green” paint on the body and eggshell white paint on the roof.

 

With the body fresh from paint, it was mated with a Roadster Shop Fast Track chassis featuring IFS, a four-link rear, and a Strange Engineering Ford 9-inch. Penske Racing coilovers inhabit the corners for bump relief, while 22- and 24-inch Billet Specialties wheels were shod in Pirelli rubber to get the ’Burb rolling. But a rolling vehicle must eventually come to a stop, and this is handled by Roadster Shop–edition Baer 14-inch six-piston brakes

 

Since this would be a display vehicle for the Accel Performance Group, it needed to have something worthwhile under the hood. While most people are going the way of LS, this Suburban received a big-block 502ci V-8. Loaded with Accel, Mallory, and Mr. Gasket parts—as well as Sanderson headers and Flowmaster mufflers—this motor churns out more than 500 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque, which is plenty for anything this beast would come up against in the real world. A 4L85e and custom driveshaft connects the 502ci engine to the 9-inch differential in the rear.
