Mr. Gasket Lime Crush Street Machine: 1966 Chevy SuburbanPosted in News on March 26, 2014
What's Pewe doing next to a lime green slammed Suburban? Don't worry, he's not hanging up his sandals and trading in his rusty Flatties for a beach cruising street truck just yet. We normally don’t cover trucks of the pavement pounding variety but we thought even the grumpiest and saltiest of wheelers would want to take a look at this classic Americon iron rig even if it probably isn’t suited for the easiest of trails.
The great folks over at Accel stopped by to pay us a visit recently and we just couldn't help but admire their latest creation, even if it is sitting on staggered wheels. The Mr. Gasket Lime Crush '66 Chevy Suburban is an absolutely bad ass head-turning street machine that's loud and proud. Its easy to see why we would forget about broken parts on our rigs and our next wheeling trip when you spot this lime green truck rolling down the parking lot.
Up front you'll find a set of Billet Specialties 22x10-inch wheels and 24x12-inch wheels out back with sidewalls thinner than Pewe's sandals. The list of modifications include a Roadster Shop FAST TRACK custom chassis to get the big bad 'burban around the autocross with ease while modified hood and fender opening give the mean green beast enough room to tuck its wide tires while sitting low to the pavement.
The rear wheel openings were also stretched and reshaped while the fender to cowl panel seams were eliminated purely for a cleaner overall look. Both bumpers were also smoothed and tucked to tolerances tighter than a set of Accel shorty spark plugs.
As if that wasn't enough, the Lime Crush Suburban also features, shaved door handles, a flush mounted windshield and back glass, one-piece door and side glass, a custom fuel filler mounted behind a tail light as well as a super truck dual hump dash. The Dash also features a reworked original gauge cluster while a custom aluminum center console and a set of 1961 Chevy Impala front bucket seats give the interior it's clean classic lines. Rounding out the Hawaiian theme is a hand built teak floor that stretches throughout the inside of the Lime Crush Suburban.
It’s not an all show and no go type of build either, this thing is as mean as they come. We have to admit, there’s nothing quite like the sound of a healthy 502ci Big Block Chevy with a lumpy camshaft rumbling through town to get your heart rate pumping.
In any case, we thought you’d like to take a closer look at the Mr. Gasket clean 1966 Chevy Suburban dubbed Lime Crush” to get some bad thoughts brewing in your head for your next off-road build.
