Yours for the taking is this astounding 1960 Chevrolet Apache 10 custom pickup. Embellished in striking Blue Turquoise and enhanced with white contrasts, this 4 wheel drive truck will turn every head in town. Completing the magnificent exterior, this vehicle has polished cragar wheels gilded with BF Goodrich AT LT305/65/R17 tires, a wood slated truck bed floor, color matched hard spray on bed liner, and a CR Laurence rear sliding window. If you can get past staring at the outside long enough to open the door, you will find the interior equally astounding. Fitted with a Grey and Off White vinyl bench seat, matching paint colors and even an original working dash clock, the interior perfectly complements the outside. Looking further into the internals of this beauty you will find a 350 engine under the hood connected to a manual 4 speed transmission with low first gear. Further performance upgrades that have been added include an edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor and air cleaner, a Mallory ignition, and duel exhaust. The truck also includes the original suspension and lock-outs, an aluminum radiator, and still has a generator. As if the exquisiteness of the truck was not enough, the engine shows on 2 miles on the odometer, allowing it to be your life long companion. So whether you are looking for an around town truck, a show piece, or even want to haul your board to the beach, this is the truck for you. No matter where you go or what you use it for, you will be twisting necks and causing hearts to race the entire trip!
