Description for Chevrolet Apache 1959

Confidence is cool, and patina shows a self-assurance that's becoming red-hot right now. But joining this crowd doesn't have to mean giving up creature comforts. Although this truck may look like it sat in a field for 30 years, this unique 1959 Chevrolet Apache is quite a fresh build. So beyond the tough appearance hides some exciting modern conveniences, including an upgraded frame/suspension, a crate V8, and an overdrive transmission.This is a genuine patina'd body, which is always going to get you instant credibility wherever you go. But what gives it back the hint of luster it lost decades ago is a matte clearcoat. It seals in the distinct appearance and adds some protection, which is a good thing considering all the other investments that have been made to make this a long-term classic. You see its true charm in all the restored trim that were so unique to Chevy pickups from later part of the '50s. Plus, people love to see these rare big back window Apaches. But it's not the factory pieces that really set this one apart. Those large 18-inch Cragar SS wheels are a nice hint to all the performance updates beneath the skin, and anyone who looks in the bed will see something far more advanced that what these pickups came with.Inside there has been an investment in comfort. It starts with fresh blue paint throughout the interior with plenty of tasteful tan vinyl accents and carpeting. The new feeling extends all the way to the comfortable bench seat. But while all this could be part of a nice factory-style restoration, you start to get the feeling there's something more going on the moment you grab the three-spoke sport steering wheel. After all, beyond that is a full gauge package, including tach. And it has a modern cool blue glow from the odometer/trip computer. All of this gets you heart racing even before you turn the key and hear the enhanced rumble. Under the hood you can tell there has been great care with this V8. The tidy wires, new hoses, and painted firewall & fender walls all point to a solid investment in installing a new motor. And more than just upgrading to Chevy 350, this is a powerful crate motor that was installed less than 500 miles ago. On top of this strong and fresh powerplant is a large Holley 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. And because this pickup is far speedier than new, it actually rides on a more modern frame from a '95 Impala. That gives you a lower center of gravity, thick sway bars front & rear, even modern Bridgestone Potenza tires for superior grip. But this is more than just a sports truck. A rebuilt 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission was installed at the same time as the motor. Not only does this give you overdrive comfort, but this Apache also has other great feature for long-haul comfort like power steering, an aluminum radiator, and front disc brakes.This is an exceptionally cool patina custom that was completed so recently that you can still see how new most of the component are. This is your chance at something unique, sporty, and all-around comfortable at a very nice price. Don't miss out, call today!
