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.

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.
