" Misty Blue "

From Roger :

          Here is our latest old truck, "Misty Blue."  She is a 1958 Apache 32 big back window Chevy Task Force. Misty Blue has spent all her life ('til now) in Burbank, California. The previous owner bought her new from the Chevrolet dealership there.

          In late 2003, the PO updated the truck with a 350 and auto. He also fitted her with a Camaro front clip, power steering box, etc. The owner was a 74 year old gentleman and he and his wife did the rally wheels.

          The paint was freshened up by the previous owner in 2003 and looks awesome still. They always had it garaged and kept it spotlessly clean.

          Now Misty Blue has 76,023 original miles on the clock and has come half way around the world to New Zealand to live. She's in fine company with all our other vehicles in our very large shed. She’s getting lots of loving in a heated garage. She is a joy to drive.

          I do a fair amount of shipping of vehicles and parts for our business Kemps Chev Spares. I am a truck nut for starters and if you see my other submissions you will understand.

          I missed out on one like this a few years ago and kicked myself for it ever since. As for how we found this awesome truck, I have a few real good guys that find and check out vehicles for us. This truck was pure luck as one of my guys found this beauty for another guy back here in New Zealand. But now she is in our stable of fine trucks.

          My wife has all ready found the driver's seat and loves it so there will be plenty of miles added on! 

Roger may be on the other side of the world from Stovebolt HQ, but with this passion for old trucks, he's near and dear.
