1958 Hales Speed shop Apache Ls Bagged
One previous owner big back window Texas truck. Complete frame off professional rebuild with all new components.
Absolutely no compromises or short cuts.
The truck was built by Hales Speed Shop. This is the sixth Hot Rod he has built for me and definitely the best. If
your familiar with Hales then you know the level of quality and craftsmanship they put into their builds (you can
check out build pics of the truck on their Instagram page). If your not familiar check them out. This is an
opportunity to get a new build save a lot of money and leg work, without a two year wait.
This truck was true local barn find. The old man bought it new in Los Angeles in 1958 and drove it out to Texas in
64 to the small town I live in. In the early 90s he decided to restore it so he took the glass out, pulled the bed
off and started sanding on it. That's how it sat in his barn for the next twenty plus years till I bought it.
Chassis and suspension: Custom Hales speed shop using a highly modified Fat Man Fab front and Custom 3 link rear.
Air ride all custom, Vivair compressors, Firestone bags, Semi Brake line fittings. Rides like a Caddy, Lays Frame
and doesn't drag. I can't express how great this truck rides and drives. This is not some off the shelf air ride
kit but a Professionally designed, engineered, and built suspension system. It truly rides and drives better than a
new car and is built to last.
Engine and Drivetrain: New LS 6 with custom ground Comp cam, valve springs, edlebrock victor jr intake, 72lb
injectors, 1200cfm throttle body. Vintage air front runner accessory drive. Transmission Built 4l80 with billet
converter. New Curry 9" rear with 35 spline axles and 3:73 Posi. Drivetrain was built to handle 1000hp and be
Interior: Full Custom leather interior by Neil Cloud. Cab covered in dynomat and dynofoam. Ididit column with
shifter, shrunk down 60 Impala wheel. Full Dakota digital gauge pod with analog read out. Custom Vintage air A/C
with largest box they make(will freeze you out). Electric wipers, Complete wire harness , One piece side glass, all
windows, seals and rubbers replaced.
Paint and body: fleet side bed with new professionally handmade arrow trim. Bed floor custom fabbed oak and steel
bed floor. All chrome on entire truck either replaced with new or re-chromed and painted. Most visible bolts
replaced with stainless. Body stripped down and painted gloss black ( single stage). Nice driver quality paint
nicer than most rods.
Tires and Wheels Bfg Silvertowns wide whites on Wheel Smiths Chrome steelies with spider caps.
I drive my Hot Rods everyday and that is what this truck was built for. This truck is completely professionally
built from the ground up with the best new components out there. It was built to run hundreds of thousands of miles
trouble free. It will smoke the tires at any speed and get 25mpg at 85 on the highway. This is not a trailer queen
show truck. It is beautiful, but it is also the most Badass Apache out there that you can drive coast to coast.
It's basically like having a brand new corvette with a 58 Apache body.

After months of speculation, Chevrolet has finally revealed the official starting price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The base MSRP for the 450-horsepower Stingray Coupe will be $51,995, while the Stingray Convertible will go for $56,995 (*both prices include a $995 destination fee). This means that the price increase from 2013 to 2014 is just $1,400 for the coupe and $2,395 for the convertible - pretty modest increases considering the upgrade in specifications. Of course, neither price accounts for the sort of dealer markup that might grace early C7 window stickers, especially since less than a third of all Chevrolet dealers will be allocated Corvette models to sell at the car's launch.
Now, these prices are for the base car, so if you're wondering how much a fully loaded Stingray will run, Chevy has given us a good indication of that as well. The coupe we saw on display at the Detroit Auto Show (shown above), for example, would run $73,360 including options such as the $2,800 Z51 Performance Package, $2,495 competition sport seats and the $1,795 Magnetic Ride Control option - just to name a few. Stepping up to the 3LT trim level that brings a full leather interior will run an extra $8,005 over the base price.
While $20,000 in options may seem like a lot, this "as-tested" price still has the C7 competitively priced against rival coupes like the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R. Speaking of price comparisons, Chevrolet also points out that the C7 Stingray Z51 costs $2,200 less than the C6 Grand Sport while delivering better acceleration (0-60 mph in less than four seconds) and improved track performance (including more than 1 g in cornering).
General Motors has finally dropped the curtain on the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra. Both trucks have undergone substantial revisions with updated versions of the company's 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 engines. In a shot across the bows of both Ford and Chrysler, GM says it won't use a V6 engine adapted from passenger car applications. Instead, it developed the 4.3-liter engine based on its proven truck-duty architecture.
All three mills will boast direct injection fuel systems as well as a new cylinder head design. Combined with a revised piston, the new engines feature a smaller combustion chamber with a compression ratio of 11:1 or higher depending on the application. Cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve timing are all part of the recipe, and each engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with auto grade breaking. So far, no fuel economy or horsepower figures have been released, though GM says the new engines will best their predecessors in both areas.
Outside, the trucks feature a number of enhancements to reduce drag and wind noise, and GM claims both the Silverado and Sierra will offer buyers some of the quietest cabins in the class. Extended cab models now feature front-hinged rear doors to allow easier access to the back passenger area, and Crew Cab buyers can now select between a five-foot, eight-inch bed or a six-foot, six-inch bed. Buyers with a mind toward going off road will also rejoice in the return of the Z71 package, complete with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and additional under-body protection.
Variety, as they say, is the spice of life. That's a lesson that is currently being taught to General Motors, because despite a strong showing from its 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, the General's pickup sales still can't best those of cross-town rival Ford.
With 59,163 trucks moved, GM fell just over 1,000 units short of toppling Ford, and one of the main reasons for that, according to GM's chief sales analyst, was due to a lack of variety in the engines and body styles available on dealer lots. "We are still over-weighted toward crew-cab V8 trucks. Our light-duty mix will moderate over time as our launch progresses," said Kurt McNeil.
Loading dealers with the popular combination of the 5.3-liter V8 and the four-door, Crew Cab body style was intentional during the truck's launch, but as supplies of leftover 2013 models, which are being sold at heavy incentives, are beginning to wane, both budget-conscious and high-dollar buyers are looking elsewhere instead of at the volume model pickups.
