800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1960 Chevrolet Apache has that attraction where an honest day's work meets intricate detail and style. It's the kind of appeal that comes from a real truck that can be put to real use but still turn heads no matter at a cruise-in or a hardware store run.
The bold jet-pod styling that debuted on the 1960 truck is now a thing of legend. It proves the '60s were a great time for designers, even at Chevy's truck division. The double-hump hood, waistband around the cab, wraparound windshield, and curvy stepside fenders - you can see all these details today thanks to great care with the sheet metal. The red paint represents this truck ideally where you have a good gloss without people ever accusing you of having a trailer queen. After all, this is a vintage pickup, and you know that by the glossy real lumber in the bed. Plus, the white on the hood, side trim, and cab corners are a coordinated way to show off some of the best details. Bright chrome bumpers, a stylish grille, and classic Rally wheels complete an attractive pickup package.
The interior remains classic while also being clean and comfortable. So you have a vintage style but with a fresher feeling to the seat, carpeting, and smooth dash. As a true classic, you'll appreciate the factory style feel everywhere from the heat/defrost sliders to the artful factory wheel.
Lift the hood and see a true marvel. Hardly any of the smooth running 235 cubic-inch straight-six engines are seen in '60s vintage Chevy trucks anymore. Despite the fact that these were the sturdy backbone for the company's dependability reputation, they often get replaced by the small-block V8s. We understand why this happens and sell plenty of those custom trucks (this one even comes with the V8 crossmember if you're thinking about doing the upgrade.) But with so many of those out there, it's refreshing to see something this honest. We're not alone. Those who want to sneak a peek at your stalwart Apache will expect something of this caliber in the engine bay. But beyond just the appearance of a workmate, this is still ready to go to work. It fires up easily, idles nicely, and pulls strong thanks to the control of the three-speed manual transmission. There's even modern cruising tires and the trailing arm rear suspension to make the drive feel more confident.
The sale comes complete with maintenance records, including for a rebuilt carburetor. It's amazing you can get something this cool and vintage for such an affordable price, and that's why we know it won't be in our showroom long. Call today!!!
