Creating something different when just about everything has been done has become a rather difficult task, but Josh Munson and his team at Green Mountain Gear Heads in Williston, Vermont combine a whole lot of creativity and ingenuity to push the envelope further. This is the 1966 Chevrolet Suburban with absolutely perfect patina they brought to the Amsoil Undiscovered Builders showcase at the 2017 Chevrolet Performance Car Craft Summer Nationals. It changes things up a bit because it's powered by a twin-turbo Ford engine.
After an employee found the vehicle sitting behind a house, they hauled it to the shop and got to work upgrading or replacing virtually everything except for the completely original body. They grabbed a 5.4L Modular V8 out of an old Ford truck and went through it, replacing the internals with forged components from Ford Racing and Manley as well as adding a Comp stage 2 turbo cam. After going through the bottom end, they swapped on a set of Navigator heads and adapted a Holley Sniper EFI Coyote intake manifold to fit. Somehow that still wasn't good enough for Josh, so he went to work making a set of custom headers and all the plumbing to incorporate a complete Precision Turbo system into the vehicle taking it to the next level.
Combining such a radical engine with the killer look of a patina Suburban slammed on air ride suspension truly makes for a unique and interesting ride that gets lots of attention anywhere it goes.
