In addition to building LowLion and The Lunchbox, Carolina Truck Shop is currently working on the following projects:
Dreamsicle – 1962 C-10Owned by Matthew Petrosian, Greenville, SC
The Dreamsicle is getting a few upgrades in 2019. Carolina Truck Shop will be completing a LS swap with a 5.3 4L60E engine and transmission combination. In addition to the LS swap, the Dreamsicle will be receiving control arm suspension and will be lowered with a static drop. Finally, a No Limit Engineering fuel system will be added along with power steering.
Check back for pictures as the build progresses! Also, be sure to check out the blog post written by the Dreamsicle’s owner.
Race Truck (C400) – 1967 C-10Owned by Matt & Missy Criswell, Lyman, SC
This 67 will be also be getting a LS swap along with a new fuel system, power steering and A/C from Vintage Air. The firewall will be shaved and the engine bay and interior will be painted. New wheels and tires and big brakes will be added. The outside of the truck will keep the patina finish while the interior will be completely re-done.
The C400 Race Truck will follow Missy’s vision for the build and all work will be completed by Carolina Truck Shop.
The Taco Truck – 1988 Chevy Step VanOwned by Carolina Truck Shop, Spartanburg SC
The step van will be used as a promotional vehicle for the shop and will also be used as a vendor vehicle at local shows. Plans for the van include a static drop and new wheels and tires. The outside will have some vinyl graphics and logos added and a new concession style window will be added to sell products from. The interior will receive new seats and custom shelving in the back of the van.
Be on the lookout for the Taco Truck at local shows later this year!
