For Sale: 1958 Chevrolet Apache in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

The recipe for success is easy: take one handsome 1958 Chevy 3100 Apache pickup, drench it in vivid orange paint, give it a comfortable and tasteful A/C interior, add an overdrive transmission, and power it with a potent small block V8. The result is the kind of truck you'll love to show and drive.

The full restoration of this truck was only completed a few months ago, and the quality and freshness are seen right from the first impression. The orange metallic paint makes this pickup look candy-coated. There's also bright chrome, clean lines, and an overall sleekness that has gone into restoring this truck. There's a reason for so much distinction on this pickup. The 1958 Apache design ushered in a new era of style. The wide four-headlight front end, crisp hood arches, and wraparound windshield are instantly distinctive. So you have a pickup that may have been built for ruggedness, but today we especially cherish them for offering the detailed style that defined the 1950s. After all, look at the rear fenders with crisp lines and a rounded profile. This is more artistically designed than some 1958 coupes! And the deleted badges, flush roll pan, polished exhaust tips, and 17-inch US Mags polished alloys to give it a terrifically updated style. But as much as modernize this pickup, it never loses the classic appeal of real wood in the truck bed.

The black interior looks great against the bright orange exterior. There's a freshness to the seats, carpeting, headliner, and other fundamentals - even the weather stripping - that remind you how recent the restoration was. And well-integrated features like a retro-style AM/FM stereo and cold-blowing air conditioning tell you there was an emphasis on comfort. The sports steering wheel, tilt column, and full dolphin gauge package make the driver's seat a command position.

The engine bay has the same fresh style as the rest of the truck. This was produced at the beginning of GM's small block era, so it's nice to have V8 power. But the 350 cubic-inch displacement is also larger than they offered in 1958. This also inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet tune as the dual exhaust feeds into Flowmaster mufflers. This is a truck you will want to drive, so the upgrades reflect that. The Champion aluminum radiator helps keep the whole package running cool, and the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission gives you highway-friendly overdrive. There's also power steering, power brakes, front discs, and new modern touring tires to round out this all-around appealing setup.

There are plenty of build receipts helping to document this truck's fresh and comprehensive restoration. It makes for a beautiful pickup with driving appeal for trips near and far. Call now!
