Retro Electro - 1958 Chevy Apache

Retro Electro - 1958 Chevy Apache

A note on Mike Kiraly's windshield saying "I have a 1958 Chevy Apache for sale if you're interested", began the journey of this ½ ton short box with side steps. Barged over from Keats Island just across from Gibson's on the sunshine coast, the pickup was masterfully restored with near-perfect bodywork and paint job. The guts of the car were removed and in the engine's place we dropped a high efficiency Azure Dynamics AC motor capable of generating 465 ft lbs of torque at only 200 RPMs. This truck can do an amazing burn-out, yet runs emissions-free as it is Bullfrogpowered® with 100 per cent BC wind power. Twenty-four lithium batteries provide a 150km driving range and with 220V/30A power service, the truck can be recharged in 8 hours. Retro Electro can be seen silently cruising the streets of Vancouver and the lower mainland of BC, delivering Steam Whistle Pilsner to thirsty drinkers.
