DIALED-IN APACHE RESTOMOD, BUILT 350 V8, AUTO, 4 WHEEL DISC, PS, PB, A/C, SLICK
The recipe for success is easy: take one handsome 1958 Chevy Apache pickup, drench it in vivid red paint, give it a comfortable and tasteful interior, and power it with a potent small block V8. The results on this one speak for themselves, making this pickup a ready-made piece of full-sized fun.
The red paint on this truck is so lustrous and shiny that you'll be tempted to dip your fingers in it to see how deep it is. Delightfully bright and solid, it's the perfect high-impact color for the stylish Apache, which blends a bit of style with a ruggedness that defined Chevy trucks for a generation. Close examination will reveal tight gaps and smooth body lines, all evidence that this truck was clean before the work started and that the guys in charge took their time. Crisp details like the raised hood edges and the bead along the rocker panels move beyond mere function, creating a truck that was as beautiful when it was empty as when it was hauling a heavy load. The forward-canted cab suggests power and speed, which this truck delivers, and the stepside bed gives it a muscular stance. Beautiful fresh oak planks in the bed warm everything up but if you're planning on hauling anything, bring something to protect it because it's just too pretty to beat up.
The gray interior is just as neatly finished as the bodywork. They ditched the original bench seat and replaced it with a set of low-back leather buckets and a custom center console that work even better. Matching gray carpets help control noise and heat in the cab and replace the original rubber mats, helping to further the luxury truck image. The gauges are drop-dead gorgeous pieces that fit neatly in the original triangular instrument panel and offer a much more comprehensive view of the engine. There's also a tilt steering column topped by a Budnik wheel, a neatly installed A/C system, and an AM/FM stereo system that sounds great in the well-insulated cab. They also added power windows, seat belts, and even a set of matching floor mats, making this a truck you could drive every day if you were so inclined.
The 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood was rebuilt with an .030 overbore, a healthy camshaft, and a lot of red paint. Up top, an Edelbrock carburetor hides under a polished aluminum air cleaner, with a pair of finned valve covers to match. The block wears more red, and you can tell they spent a lot of time in the paint booth, because all the accessories, fittings, and other hardware have been painted to match the body. Block-hugging headers funnel the exhaust into a new dual exhaust system with a great rumbling idle, and yes, that's an independent Corvette rear end out back, which also means 4-wheel disc brakes are part of the deal. The transmission is a reliable TH350 3-speed automatic that replaces the original 3-speed manual, just about everything under the truck has been painted red as well. Stylish billet aluminum wheels are a nice update and wear fat Michelin radials that fill the big wheel wells perfectly.
Beautifully built and lots of fun to drive, this pickup is ready to enjoy without worries. Call today!
