For Sale: 1959 Chevrolet 3100 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

A mean-looking 4x4 machine with upgraded V8 power, custom A/C interior, and plenty of recent investments to make it shine. That's what you get on this 1959 Chevrolet 3100 Apache.


The Deep Burnt Orange paint is a great way to instantly announce that this is a truck of distinction (of course, the lifted stance does that, too.) There's a nice modern metallic glow that really lets you see the details of the well-presented sheetmetal. And these Apaches are really known for their curves. You see industrial art everywhere from the stepside bed, to how the power bulges of the hood melds into the bodywork. And the curved back glass on the optional big back windows is something we all love. Plus, they made nice investments in the brightwork making sure the grille, bumpers, wheels, and even small details like the door handles all shine like mirrors. And as good as this restored truck looks, it also has functional upgrades like the trailer ball rear bumper and the steel floor in the bed.


Inside this has plenty of well-integrated custom touches. After all, you could never get high-back cloth bucket seats in the '50s. Plus, the dash has a very cool upgrade, because this '59 Apache has the sporty gauge cluster of a '59 Impala. Other upgrades include an AM/FM/CD stereo, new auxiliary gauges, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. And that later model dual-spoke GM steering wheel on a tilt column is a nice hint at where another great upgrade came from.


When you look under the hood is a tidy presentation with a 350 cubic-inch crate V8 in the center. This has been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum intake, and HEI ignition. So it fires up nicely and makes plenty of power over this 3100's original motor. That extra muscle from this V8 will be appreciated, because you can really use this truck for work and play. The added versatility comes from riding on the chassis of a younger 1979 GMC K-series 4x4. And since it comes from one of Chevy/GMC's longest production runs, the stout 4x4 components will always be easy to source. This more modern setup also means nice conveniences like power steering and power brakes w/discs up front. Plus, the four-speed manual transmission is paired nicely to give you full control, including a first-gear that really helps deliver low-speed torque.


Complete with build receipts, this is a distinct classic 4x4 with all the right features. So if you want a vintage look that's also capable, call today!
