Chevrolet trucks like this 1958 Apache were probably the first pickups that were actually designed to take into account that maybe folks wanted their trucks to look good as well as haul stuff. Showing off its bright red paint and comfortable interior, this Apache never fails to elicit a smile from everyone who sees it. And with a 383 stroker motor inside, it's no slouch in the performance department, either. Trucks were still practically tools in '58, but that doesn't mean people weren't using them for other things, and those were the folks Chevrolet was trying to attract. As a result, this handsome Apache has plenty in common with the other vehicles in the lineup and today stands tall as an icon of 1950s styling. Sure, there are a few modifications that give it a clean, unadorned look, but nothing can disguise the brilliance of the design. Even up close, the bodywork stands up to scrutiny, suggesting that the work was very well done and it's been well maintained ever since. There's lots of detail, too, from the ridges on the hood to the forward-canted stepside fenders that give an impression of motion. There's not much chrome left, since the hood ornament, door handles, and hood trim was shaved and the grille was painted to match the body, but you can't argue with the results. Out back, there's a custom roll pan molded into the sides of the bed, and speaking of the bed, it's finished with handsome wood planks, stainless steel rub strips, and spray-in bedliner. The beautiful tan leather interior isn't stock, of course, but it's far more stylish and comfortable than the original sticky vinyl. That's a custom bench that does a good impression of buckets, but the center armrest includes a pair of cup holders to add a little practicality. Carpets on the floor help control noise and heat, making it feel far more luxurious inside than you'd expect, and matching door panels give the interior a neat two-tone look that works quite well. A polished tilt steering column and billet wheel highlight the driver's side of the cab, along with a full array of Auto Meter instruments in a neat V-shaped pod. There's no radio and the center of the dash has been smoothed and refinished, with the controls for the A/C system tucked underneath in a neat custom panel with a pair of eyeball vents. Chevy's small-block V8 was a natural choice in the sporty Apache, with this one carrying a 383 cubic inch stroker motor that makes for an entertaining drive. Drenched in Chevy Orange paint and carrying a chrome air cleaner on the Holley 4-barrel carb, it certainly looks bright and clean under the hood. With just 4000 miles on the build it still looks fresh and runs great, with a smooth power curve that's extremely impressive. Power heads aft through a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and a 10-bolt rear end, and a dual exhaust system with twin tailpipes just ahead of the rear wheels has just the right V8 rumble. An independent suspension with power steering and front disc brakes makes it easy to handle for anyone, so hit the road. Blacked-out Torque Thrust wheels have a cool look that's traditional but up-to-date, and they sit on 255/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials. A neat old truck with a ton of character, this Apache shows you that form doesn't necessarily have to follow function and tools can still be beautiful. Call today!
