1958 Chevy Apache Resto-mod – Introduced in March of 1955, Chevrolet’s new ‘Task Force’ series of trucks was quite a departure from their existing line of pickups. Smooth, rounded sheet-metal replaced the old pontoon-style fenders, and large, wrap-around windshield glass offered better visibility and gave a more contemporary look. And for the first time, an eight-cylinder motor was available under the hood. In 1958, styling on all Chevy passenger car and truck models were changed to accommodate the industry-wide switch from two to four headlamps. The new Apache model came standard with painted grille and front bumper, and could be upgraded to chrome. The new Fleetside model featured a smooth-sided cargo box and larger bed capacity. Model designations were shortened to 31, 32, 35 and 38 series. A recasting of the 283 small-block gave thicker cylinder walls and side motor-mount bosses.
We all know and love resto-mod trucks and it’s obvious why they’re popularity has grown so wildly over the last few years. Where else can you share the unique looks of a classic vehicle with the highly evolved drivetrains of modern vehicles? This ’58 Apache 3100 is just that vehicle! I has all the right looks and paired with a 4.3L V6 and 4L60E automatic transmission, it delivers the best of both worlds. Additionally, the body sits on a 1988 Tahoe Frame/Suspension which greatly improves the pleasure of driving this truck. Additional features include; late model Chevy Steering wheel, Cruise Control, Power Steering, Power Disc Front Brakes, Tilt Steering, Tinted Glass, Chrome Mirrors, Wood Bed, 17″ Alloy Wheels, and thick ZR-rated Tires! We would definitely rate this truck as above-average but have priced it in accordance with “average” current values from Hagerty & NADA ($29,300 – $30,700). Come take a test drive and we’re positive you’ll fall in love.
