Fully custom 1959 Chevrolet Apache pickup sits on a Fat Man
Fabrications chassis complete with independent front suspension,
coilovers at all four corners, and 13-inch six-piston Wilwood front
disc brakes with 10-inch units in the rear. The rear end sports
3.73 gears and a 32-spline axle. The truck rolls on 20-inch Billet
Specialties wheels in the rear with 18-inches upfront, all clad in
BFGoodrich tires. The body modifications from front to back include
frenched headlights and taillights, shaved outside mirrors,
smoothed bumpers and the stake holes as well as tailgate were
closed up to give it a seamless appearance. Aftermarket motorcycle
taillights were frenched into the custom roll pan with side-exit
exhaust plumbed into the rear fenders. The doors were shaved and
given remote bear-claw latches, drip rails removed, and the
original sun visor was cut down about 4-inches and molded into the
roofline. Hickory bed wood from LMC Truck was stained to complement
the DuPont Torch Red and custom black paint. The firewall was
recessed to accommodate the potent Ram Jet fuel-injected 502ci V8
engine. The V8 features a Vintage Air serpentine system with a
custom air-induction system and channels power through to the 700R4
transmission automatic transmission. Spent gasses are pumped
through Sanderson Headers and a custom stainless exhaust system.
The interior is wood-grained airbrushing and the dash was
refabricated to move the Classic Instruments cluster to the center
directly above the custom console with a Pioneer head unit/DVD
player and Vintage Air controls. Also inside is a Billet
Specialties steering wheel and tilt column with a custom mold for
the fiberglass headliner and Wise Guys seats stitched in black
leather with ostrich inserts. It was chosen as Builders Choice
Award at Goodguys 11th Midwestern Nationals and was one of the
finalists for 2011 Truck of the Year at Goodguys Southwest
