In a world full of Chevy trucks with “me too” small block V8s, it’s refreshing to see an original 235 cubic inch inline-six still under the hood of this Apache. Certainly willing and able to work hard, it has a great trucky sound and smooth torque that only six cylinders in a line can deliver. It’s wearing the proper corporate blue engine enamel, an oil bath air cleaner, and single-barrel carburetor. The only notable upgrade is a bigger radiator up front, but I think you’ll agree that’s a good idea. The stock 3-speed manual transmission lives behind it and spins the original rear end, so this truck will still haul a load without breaking a sweat, and cruises happily at highway speeds. Who says you need a crate motor to enjoy your old iron? Thanks to a frame-off restoration a few years ago, there are also new shocks, super clean floors, a new exhaust system, and stylish color-matched Rally wheels with 235/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials for the perfect look.
