FBM Apache Lightning Autococker Body

This FBM Apache Autococker body comes from the collection of Paul Yun. From looking at the archived FBM website it appears FBM did their own laser engraving.

Based on the styling and finer details on this body I am thinking it was produced after Chris Ogaz was no longer making bodies for Spanky and FBM and FBM moved to having their designs machined in house from billet aluminum. This would likely place it around 2004 to 2006.

On FBM’s archived website from the mid 2000s, Laser engraving is offered as an option. This style takes the Apache body and adds lighting to it, mimicking the Lightning / Thunderstruck anodizing style pioneered by Piers Wiggett at PK Selective. Obviously the laser engraving doesn’t come close to comparing but it’s a much simpler way to get a lightning style design.

This video also shows the FBM Mercury Bolt which Paul received with this FBM Apache in the original packaging.

This body belongs to Paul Yun who mentioned he would be interested in selling it. Email me for details.
