I just won at auction A 58 Chevy Apache Fleetside. minor side damage. very little rot. Paid over$ 9,000. Its priceless to me. Runs great. minor maintenance needed.

But I never have to pay registration or smog. came with original owners manual. I overpaid about$ 2,000. But it's just $$ in the end. let me know what ya'll think.

That looks real nice.

So much of it is original and in good condition, go slowly on thinking about changes.

Clean it up and tune it and do regular/standard maintenance.

Buy a reproduction Shop Manual and Owner's Manual (there are Tech Tips here for new owners, and for many aspects of owning/using/fixing these trucks). Jim Carter Truck Parts, ClassicParts.com, Chevs of the 40s, etc . .

Here is an on-line 1958 Master Parts & Accessories Catalog.

Congratulations.

That is a solid looking truck for $9K. I paid $6K for my 54 but it needed a lot more sheet metal work than this truck appears to need. I have a spreadsheet that I track everything I spend on the truck. So far, including the original purchase price I am at about $12,500 invested. This does not include the hours of my labor. I don't think you over paid. Part of the price is driven by the area of the country you are in. East of the Mississippi that is a pretty good price. West, you might do better on the price.

That is a fair price I feel you got a lot of good things going on there! I paid 3 grand for my 59 step side 20 yrs. ago! Of course now I spent enough money to choke a big horse. My last hurrah building it for my son and grandson. The time my son and I are putting into it together priceless! Been offered 35 thousand for mine 60% done said "no"!

Paid 100 bucks in 1985 from crystal city Manitoba towed it all the way to Ontario a good 10 hour drive had some fun along the way the 54 lost a rear wheel in Carmen and with some luck at the corner the wheel did not hit anything and there was a Fort ignition that had all the new studs and a tire shop across the street for a new rim.
