A lot of Apaches turn up on AL. Our friend Sean Wilsey owns a legendary one that commutes regularly between Brooklyn and West Texas. I learned to drive standard on an Apache while I was working on the GH Ranch, Sundre, Alberta in the early Seventies. First time I ever was stopped by the Mounties, eh, I was driving an Apache. Came across this one in the neighborhood east of downtown, the Springs. If you google Autoliterate Apache you'll turn up lots more.

"I have been wanting to photograph these trucks/wander around this
place for a while. I have met the fellow who owns them in passing
several times but not lingered long enough to request an invite. He traps
mountain lions for a living. He drives
a 1968 short bed F-100 4wd that has a 390, a top-shift fourspeed, 3/4
ton axles and 16in wheels. I shoulda shot that one too but you'll have
to be content with the "scraps" as it were. More than a lifetime worth
of 68-72 Ford parts and an few from other eras as well. He plans to
swap his '68 frame for a '79 3/4 ton "sometime soon." From the look ofit he has a line on a few."--DB

This was a gas station, now a Colorado College student gallery. 802 N. Nevada Street. It's looking very Marfa-esque around here.
