My 9 year project hit a major milestone today. I got her out on the open road for the first time.
1958 Apache 235/3 speed, stock wheels and tires.
At 45 mph she was screaming loud. I still had pedal left, but it sounded like it was winding out fairly high. I don’t have a tach, so not sure exactly how high.
I’ve seen threads about these trucks being slow, and I think it’s going to end up with getting a different rear end. I built the truck to be stock, but st 40-45 mph I’m worried about getting rear ended!
Anyone have some wisdom to share?
