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 fuel-injected V8 performance and modern A/C comfort. It's the kind of pickup you'd build if you had the time and patience, but instead, this is turn-key ready. So you skip ahead to hauling home the trophies this weekend.
You can understand the level of thoughtfulness that went into building this pickup just by looking at the paint. While Aqua Blue is a great color to have on a '50s machine, this one is a bit different. There's only about 100 miles on this build since completing restoration, and it has a modern clear coat luster that makes it look like a deep blue ocean in the sunshine. Of course, its cut-above appearance is also courtesy of attention to details during restoration. Door gaps are excellent, the hood fits flush, and the real wood truck bed has glossy and fresh lumber. And of course, no classic like this is complete without the bright work. The chrome bumpers, Apache arrowhead side trim, and cool grille with integrated parking lights all contribute to this overall standout package. While it's all about getting this vintage truck looking its period-correct best, the modern Boss 18-inch wheels are also a nice clue to the upgrades within.
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 you have a very uniform total package. The worlds of vintage and modern come together nicely as the classic dash also houses convenient features like the upgraded steering wheel, tilt column, and cold R134a air conditioning.
With so much invested in the interior and exterior, you better believe there was plenty of consideration under the hood, too. It starts with the unmistakable site of fuel-injected Chevy power. The LT1 V8 looks fantastic with the bright elements like the valve covers, rail covers, alternator, and radiator shroud. Plus, the intake was painted to match the exterior for a true master touch of style. But beyond looking great, the C4 Corvette motor makes this classic truck a true all-around performer. The dual exhaust growls with authority to let everyone know there's something special under the hood. But this Chevy's appeal goes beyond the motor. You have an upgraded Heidts Mustang II-style independent front suspension, power steering, a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, and four-wheel disc brakes. Starting to get the picture on this one? It's the classically cool pickup you can drive anywhere with ease.
You couldn't ask for more with this quality build, and so you're looking at the chief of all Apaches. Don't wait too long, because this will be finding a new home soon. Call now!
