Jason Bittle’s Outstanding ’58 Apache
Jason admits that these kinds of trucks, in any condition, are ultra rare to see anywhere in Australia, let alone one that has been slammed to the ground and decked out in true street truck fashion. “I could park this thing next to a brand-new Lamborghini of Ferrari, and still get all the attention”, Jason boasts, and rightly so. “This is exactly why I had been searching for a decent ’58 or ’59 Fleetside patina truck for at least 10 months prior to finding the old Chevy.”
The guys didn’t have to worry much about the Chevy’s exterior since Jason likes the aesthetic of natural patina, and when a truck’s surface is worn down as good as this, it’s sometimes best to let nature’s handiwork take center stage. There were some modern additions made to the truck’s exterior in the way of GSI door handles, and new head and taillight housings from Brothers, but other than that, the plan was to keep the modifications to the façade at a minimum.
“I do plan on plan on taking ‘ol Duck’s Guts out to a few shows in Australia”, Jason says. “But as crazy as it sounds, I do miss the building process, so the only way to fix this is to start a new project, so stay tuned.” Whether there are plans for the Apache in the near future, or a completely new truck project, Jason can always be counted on make things happen in his garage, or anywhere else across the globe in the name of saving more classic trucks from the scrap yards.
