Southern Motor Company of Liberty, South Carolina, is getting set to introduce the all new and complete from the factory Southern 358 Pickup. If you like trucks, especially the classic trucks, you’ll immediately start checking your bank account because this truck’s a beauty.
The Southern 358 is a brand new all steel bodied pickup powered by a 4.6 liter, 330 horsepower Mustang V8 engine. A four speed automatic with overdrive is standard, a five speed manual is optional. Rear drive is through 3:73 gears with disc brakes all around. Overall length is 194 inches and wheelbase is 116 inches. The bed is 6ft 2 inches. The truck comes in standard colors or your choice of practically any color you might want. The complete list of equipment offered in the standard configuration is really impressive.
Also, to reflect the fact that this is no backyard custom but a complete production vehicle, the Southern 358 comes with airbags, side impact beams, seatbelt pre-tensioners and a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.
Take a look at these photos and see if you don’t agree this is one gorgeous truck like the ones we remember, only better. They are taking pre-orders for the first 100 sequentially numbered trucks which requires a deposit of $10,000 applied toward the suggested selling price of $55,000. That’s a great value for a truck of this caliber. I like it!
