EXCLUSIVE: 1958 Chevrolet Apache Pickup

UPDATE – Jeff was able to get back over to take more photos of this Apache and he even filmed a walkaround video of it! So be sure to take another look at this truck and be sure to contact Jeff via the form below.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some of the vehicles for sale in my friend’s collection in Georgia, so I thought I’d start with one from the last round of updates I shared back in May. This 1958 Chevrolet Apache pickup is a desirable quad-headlight model, and remains in impressively rot-free condition and runs and drives. It is sold with a clean Georgia title and located near Blue Ridge, Georgia.

What Makes It Special? The Apache pickup is a model enthusiasts seem to love, especially when they incorporate details like the quad headlights that represented a short-lived design. When I first came upon this truck, it was trapped in the brambles; with a battery and fresh gas, it fired up and moved out of the brush with ease. It’s also one of the few vehicles on the property that includes a title with the sale.

Body Condition: The body is in very nice condition for the age, with no major rot-through or damage of any kind. The cab corners appear solid and I didn’t see any chassis rot when I crawled underneath. The Apache will need a bed, but it seems like a great opportunity to build a custom bed with wood slats or track down a desirable step-side design.

Mechanical Condition: Seeing the truck fire up for the first time in years without any major fiddling was a treat. The Apache runs and drives well but will need brakes. The truck is capable of being driven around the property and the tires hold air, so loading shouldn’t be a problem. We do not recommend driving it home due to needing a full brake job.

The Apache is one of my favorite vehicles in my friend’s collection, mostly due to how honest it is and the fact that it has never been modified or seemingly abused, based on the body’s condition. Please use the contact form below to ask more questions or set up a time to check it out; the asking price is $4,800 OBRO.

  • Asking Price: $4,800 OBO
  • Location: Blue Ridge, GA
  • Mileage: 100,000

    Thank goodness it looks to be largely original as per the photos of the engine compartment. Ha! Fired up after sitting. Yup. Hard to beat a 235 c.i. inline-6
    “Flamethrower” engine.

    Ah, it is the 3600 model, the Biggun. That explains the lack of a bed
    on the back of it. This is not the 3100 half-ton model. This one may have
    been used for tow duty

    Stake bed comin’ up! Would put it back
    to work right away. A truck like this one
    would never run out of uses around our
    house! Work it Monday-Friday and cruise it on weekends. Would your friend consider a trade?

    Seems to me there’s some kind of body filler in the door/cab corners?

      Looks like the case, as well as rusty rockers/steps. It would behoove a potential buyer to inspect the door hinge pockets, door bottoms, around the windshield opening/cowl, toe-boards etc.

        It still seemed solid to me but there is also multiple layers of paint – at least three that I counted.

    When I was a kid there were lots of this body style around although they were either 1/2 tons of full-fledged 1-tons. Dad had a ’59 1-ton with the long wheelbase. Funny it slipped my mind until I saw this one. Dad’s was the same color. It seems to me it had a 261 engine. I drove it around the ranch but I was pretty young back then.

    If this truck came my way I would try to source out a box for it and restore it as such. Keep the big wheels and the 4-spd and use it. The 6 cyl. motor too. It will run a long time…

    Is this a short or long bed?

    This apache has its share or rust. 2 shifters, I take it that the floor shifter is the operable one. Nice project for someone. Is it me or is that a later six, 250 or 292? Look it over good. Good luck to the new owner!

      It’s a 235 or 261 (2nd gen).

      3rd gen (194,230,250,292) will have perimeter style valve cover AND 3 bolts per side. Irregular shape on valve cover driver side.

      2nd gen valve cover can be perimeter style AND 2 bolts per side, OR 2 center bolts.Smooth, boxy shape.

      On a side-by-side comparison you can also observe that spark plugs are installed at a steeper angle on the 3rd gens. Judging by the clearance to the firewall here I can understand you’d wonder whether this would be the correct mill

    The floor shifter would be the operable one. The steering column
    may have been replaced with another, as they wear out after a lot of miles. Could be the column shift steering column was
    available at a wrecking yard, and was put on this truck.

    WOW! Saw one of these last week at my local junk yard (S.E. new yorkistan) while I was there dumping some concrete for them. Commented to the yard manager that you don’t see many of these any more. The truck they had probably wasn’t good for much – all the panels were rotted along the bottom, most of the glass had been busted out, and what wasn’t busted as cracked. Wood bed was long gone, as were most of the metal strips/spacers that supported the wood.

    Really pretty solid truck!! The complete bed is available through LMC!! It would be a nice cruiser with not a lot of work!!!
