It's no secret that Chevrolet builds some of the most celebrated trucks on the planet. From the AK era forward, every generation has found a solid following and, eventually, firm footing in the collector car world. Over the past few years, we've featured plenty of vintage, ground-pounding bowties, and this righteous rest-mod is just the latest in a series of sweet C/K head turners. Mixing a spry small block and proven 4-speed with bodywork that'll sit well on any show field, this road-ready warrior is worthy of EVERY Chevy fan's full attention. If you're shopping for a clean classic that mixes modern detailing with purposeful simplicity, take a close look at this awesome Apache!
This cool C10, a solid canvas that was ready to reflect some smooth street rod art, benefitted from a professional restoration which wrapped a striking coat of DuPont Dodge Bright Silver Metallic 2-stage in a bleve of well-placed details. That body-off reboot, conducted by Mooresville, North Carolina's Southern Autowerks, saw the truck debut new digs in the Spring of 2016. At the front of those digs, a color-keyed 'egg crate' grille hangs modern halogen headlights between clear parking lamps and a body-matched bumper. At the sides of that grille, a wet looking profile centers painted door handles and a traditional fuel filler beneath smoked glass. At the back of that greenhouse, a factory 'big window' reflects Oak planks that have been dressed in matte hardware, bathed in Charcoal stain and sealed in rugged clear. And at the back of that bed, a shaved tailgate hangs a bold “CHEVROLET” script between a body-matched bumper and LED taillights.
Take a look under the truck's broad hood and you'll find 350 cubic inches of Chevrolet small block that, thanks to a professional .040 overbore, creates roughly 300 horsepower! At the top of the engine, an X-Stream-style air cleaner funnels oxygen in to a coated Edelbrock carburetor, which rides a lightweight Edelbrock Performer EPS intake. At the sides of that plane, cast iron heads hang fabricated valve covers between a requisite breather and tough Keith Black pistons. Those pistons spin between a Comp hydraulic, flat-tappet cam and coated Hooker Competition headers. Those headers flank loomed GM Performance Parts plug wires, which are snapped onto a traditional points distributor. Opposite that distributor, a beefy Champion radiator centers a large puller fan behind a polished expansion tank. Aesthetically, both the painted mill and its assortment of fresh accessories seem right at home inside their Dodge Bright Silver Metallic frame. And details like silver pulleys, a Mr. Gasket fuel filter, trick dipsticks, a quality Sanden AC compressor and a proven Wilwood master cylinder ensure this Chevy has the looks to match its performance.
Naturally, that clean, road-ready mill precedes a clean, road-ready chassis. Everything starts with a sturdy, factory-spec frame that's been C Notched in the rear. Those bones roll on a fully rebuilt suspension that features drop spindles up front and lowering springs at all four corners. Behind the smooth small block, a rebuilt 700R4 4-speed spins a tough 12-bolt axle that's finished with a limited-slip differential and familiar 3.73 gears. Modern power steering makes parking easy and turns a cinch. Stops are provided by power-assisted calipers, which clinch drilled and slotted rotors. The aforementioned headers feed fresh, 2.5-inch pipes, which employ dual-chamber Flowmaster mufflers. And power meets the pavement through 20-inch U.S Mags Ramblers, which twist 255/35 Delinte Thunder D7s in front of 275/35 Delinte Thunder D7s.
When you pop this pickup's doors, you'll find a comfortable cockpit that, in traditional truck fashion, features conservative, monochromatic trim. Top dead center, a color-keyed dash hangs reliable Auto Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite telemetry behind a Kenwood CD player, Vintage Air climate control and a custom shifter. In front of that dash, fresh carpet frames a broad ultraleather seat. At the sides of that carpet, color-keyed doors found simple panels under traditional chrome handles. And in front of the driver, a polished steering wheel spins a half-wrapped rim.
Perpetually cool and visually stunning, this awesome C10 is a classic example of the skill and creativity that defines our hobby. With its clean craftsmanship and excellent asking price, it presents the rare opportunity to land a well-done showstopper that doubles as a well-done road warrior. Don't miss your chance to own this striking Chevy Apache!

What Customers Are Saying
After hearing good things about the people at RK Motors, I contacted them regarding consignment of my street rod. I found Tony Klein to be a pleasure to work with. He was very professional and forthcoming in our communications. He evaluated my vehicle and made suggestions of enhancements which would help ensure the desired result would be achieved in the marketing of the vehicle. We agreed on an acceptable sale price. Following the completion of the recommended items, I brought the vehicle to RK for consignment. After a thorough inspection and correction of some minor issues at what I considered a fair price, the vehicle was offered for sale. It sold quickly with me receiving the agreed value. I would have to repeat the recommendation that I received. RK Motors does what they say they will do, and obtains for the seller a fair and agreed value. What more could you ask for?Doug C.
