1958 Apache 36 3/4 ton

from Alex Emond in southern Saskatchewan:
"The Apache was in Piapot, SK and a long-haul trucker dude was home and doing yardwork. He was happy to show me the truck. He did a number on the truck himself to double up the rear wheels. Had to fatten up the fenders. Great-looking shitkicker of a truck." --AE

a '55 from Colorado Springs,
another '58 (1/2 ton) in Santa Barbara,
and another '56 or thereabouts in The Springs.)

  1. The Chevrolet Apache pickup is a 1959 not a 1958 you can tell by the hood and fender badges
