My 58 Apache Hot Rod To Be

I traded for my 58 just outside Decatur AL. supposedly passed through the family since bought. I was looking for early 70s short wheelbase to make a street rod/daily driver but when i found the apache i couldnt look away so i set it up and rode my bike down and swapped it for the chevy and drove it back.on the way back it got hungry and ate 2 distributor drive gears 4 lifters and the cam now that the holidays are gone its time to revive her. i will be posting pics of the progress as i go.

some of the specs so far
350 4 bolt motor boreds .060
World Products Sportsman-II Heads
Elderbrock Performer Air Gap Intake
Hooker Headers
Holley carb
Cloyes noisy gear set
Crane Cams Energizer 274 HO6
Electric Fan
K&N Air Filter
POS dual exhaust
3 on the tree trans
stock rear and brakes
stock interior except for the blazer bucket seats

16x10 American Racing wheels
rear Goodyear 285/60/16s
front Goodyear 225/60/16s

here are a few i have up to date..

Re: My 58 Apache Hot Rod To Be

Well i have had my truck for a while now and done some light tinkering on it but now its time to start taking it apart and work on the cancer areas thought i would post some pics as it is and the areas of concern also i have a crack in the a pillar on the right side wanted to see if this was a common problem or if it was something the p.o. did from romping to hard on the go pedal...

Re: My 58 Apache Hot Rod To Be

Love the shop lots of fresh air ... well ventilated. Also love the battery hold-down. Watch those fast stops as a upside down battery on a hot manifold is not fun.... Good luck on the project.
