July 25, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the private seller lowered their original asking price from $12,999 to $11,500 for the ’58 Apache.
Chevrolet produced ts “Task Force” line of trucks from late 1955 through 1959. Light duty half-ton versions came with the “Apache” brand name. While 1958 was the first year of the Fleetside bed option, the traditional stepside bed remained available in two flavors: the shorter 3100 version (six-and-a-half feet) or the long (eight feet) bed Apache 3200 epitomized by this survivor example originally listed in July 2021 on Craigslist in Ashford, Connecticut (New London) currently offered at $11,500 (originally $12,999). Comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the private seller has their 3200 priced a bit optimistically between this guide’s #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) estimate of $9,800 and its #3 “Good” appraisal of $18,000. Similarly, the Colletor Car Market Review Online Tool reveals the seller’s ask falls between this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $11,200 and its #2 “Very Good” appraisal of $16,000,
In addition to the launch of the modern Fleetside (fender wells integrated inside the cargo area) pickup bed, the most noticeable change on Chevrolet’s 1958 Apache line was the redesigned quad headlight front grille consistent with a similar change across the GM Division’s car lineup. Also worth noting is that 1958 was the first year Chevrolet offered factory air conditioning on the Apacjhe trucks.
