1959 Chevrolet Apache

This stunning 1959 Chevrolet Apache 3100 pickup has obviously received a ton of time and money. It's a labor of love that has resulted in a high quality, exceptionally clean, classic truck that delivers muscle car V8 performance and modern comfort. It's the kind of pickup you'd build if you had the time, patience, and money, but instead, this is turnkey ready so you can haul home the trophies this weekend.You can understand the level of thoughtfulness that went into building this pickup just by looking at the paint. It's the bold kind of red that we love to see on an upgraded vintage pickup, but this one is a bit different. The shade has just a small hint of pastel that give it an instant connection to the art deco period that spurred on the distinctive Apache design, which gives this Chevy extra distinction. Of course, its cut-above appearance is also courtesy of a terrific restoration. Gaps are excellent and likely far better than new, the hood fits flush and is centered in the opening, and even the tailgate reflects like a mirror with virtually no distortion. Chrome bumpers, a bright grille, and those trick parking lamp housings dress up the truck, taking it beyond a mere tool, and into the realm of cool custom. And no vintage pickup is complete without a beautifully finished wood bed, and the one in this truck appears to have hauled nothing rougher than sofa cushions.Be prepared for plenty more custom work when you open the door. It starts with the custom tan leather bench that has been stitched so the driver and passenger can have individual comfort. The door panels do a great job of mixing the upholstery and exterior colors so that the whole atmosphere flows nicely, from the tan seats, to the red dash. Your left hand will love the Grant steering wheel with glossy wood rim, and your right may never want to leave the Lokar-style floor shifter. You get a Classic Instruments gauge package, and while that already provides you with plenty of info, this custom build wants you completely informed. Thus, there's a tach mounted on the tilt steering column, as well as a trio of auxiliary readouts under the dash. This pickup was built to be good to you and your friends with added comfort features such as ice-cold R134a air conditioning, supplementary insulation on the firewall, and a vintage style AM/FM stereo with an auxiliary input for you modern music player hidden in the glove box.With so much invested in the interior and exterior to make this a great car show companion, you better believe thee was plenty of consideration under the hood, too. The 350 cubic-inch small block looks fantastic with the Chevrolet Performance air cleaner and matching valve covers, tidy wires, fresh hoses, and expensive polished pulleys. But beyond looking great, this motor is built to be a true all-around performer. It's a Chevy crate V8 that has been thoroughly gone through, and then added a mild cam, Edelbrock intake, and Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. There's only about 3,500 miles on the whole custom build. So you know this enhanced V8 fires up easily, and thanks to the H-pipe Flowmaster exhaust, everyone knows there's something special under the hood. But this Chevy's appeal goes beyond the motor. You have an upgraded independent front suspension, front disc brakes, power steering, and a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. Starting to get the picture on this one? It's the classically cool pickup you can drive anywhere.We've got all the restoration photos and receipts so you can go through the journey of what it took to create the chief of all Apaches. You couldn't ask for more with this quality build. Don't wait too long, because this will be finding a new home soon. Call now!!
