This 1958 Chevrolet 3100 Apache has a terrific mix of new and vintage. After all, the classic face is joined by a modern truck bed, A/C interior, enhanced V8 power and much more to create a very cool custom pickup.
This is a thoughtfully assembled total package. The Apache design was only in place for a couple of years, so it has a distinctive place in all out truck-loving hearts. That's why it's great to get the front end looking straight and presented so well. But you'll begin to notice some subtle custom work. For example, the bumper is painted to match the white body, and the grille has a tasteful tan that coordinates with what's wrapping around the rear of the cab. So you get a classic look that's tastefully distinct. And speaking of distinction, a newer-generation strepside bed was added to the truck. With matching paint and classic polished bedrails, this feels like a seamless integration. Plus, the American Racing Torq Thrust wheels add extra shine while also drawing attention to the aggressive forward-leaning stance.
Inside is more great custom work. The tweed on the seats nicely coordinates with the lower door panels, carpeting, and custom center console. The full uniform package is complete with the doors and dash following the two-tone theme from the exterior. More than just look great, this truck was upgraded for comfort. The two low-back bucket seats provide a much more individualized bolstering than the factory ever could in '58. Plus, you get an AM/FM/CD stereo and ice-cold air conditioning. The upgraded NK4 steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and the full AutoMeter gauge panel is another reminder of a nice upgrade under the hood.
Since the interior and exterior were meant to show off, the engine bay is, too. It's exterior-matching tan paint and smooth appearance really funnels your attention to the V8. The motor is finished nicely with plenty of polished components, and its overall tidy appearance reaffirms this was a well-done project. The 350 cubic-inch motor inhales deeply thanks to a Holley four-barrel carburetor and aluminum intake. And it stays cool thanks to dual electric fans. And while you'll like the rumble of the dual exhaust, don't forget to follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll not only spot a nicely painted chassis, but also great driving upgrades like the Camaro front suspension and front disc brakes. Add in power steering and a four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive, and this is a fantastic anytime custom pickup.
This is the classic Apache that's an absolutely memorable custom build. So if you like to stand out in all the best ways, call today!
