If you have been searching for a Classic 50's Chevy Truck that truly stands out from the crowd then sit back and enjoy as this might be the one for you!! This gorgeous '59 Apache spent most of its life in the sunny, dry state of Arizona. It received a really nice resto mod type restoration about 7 years ago and was finished in a really cool Seafoam Green Hot Rod Flatz color. Everything was gone through and restored or upgraded to make this classic truck something that could be driven and enjoyed not trailered. This is actually the 2nd time I have owned this beautiful truck. After having his 2nd child the gentleman who built it realized he needed a larger Hot Rod for the whole family to enjoy so I bought it from him about 4 years ago. I sold the truck to a gentleman in California and during my daily searches for inventory I found it advertised for sale in Oregon. Evidently the guy in California enjoyed it for 3 years and then sold it to the guy in Oregon. There have only been about 1500 miles put on the truck since I sold it 4 years ago and it looks pretty much just as nice as when I sold it the first time. I will do my best to provide you with enough large images, a video of it running, and an honest description to help you decide if this is the one you have been looking for. I am also a transport broker and can assist the buyer with a great rate on Enclosed Transport anywhere in the country. I also welcome overseas buyers and can assist in getting the truck to the port of your choice.
Finished in a truly unique Seafoam Green hot Rod Flatz color the body in this truck is super nice!!! Haviing lived in Arizona most its life it started out close to rust free prior to the restoration completed about 7 years ago. Body panels are all steel and overall this s a very straight truck. Paint and body still look excellent with just a few minor flaws you would expect from a truck that is driven and enjoyed. A few small rock chips, small hairline crack in the paint on one fender, and a few other really small cosmetic blems. But, as you will see in the pics the paint and body really look awesome. The seafoam green is accented nicely with the eggshell white wrapped around the top of the cab. Some professional, classic pinstripe work was done that really fits this truck perfectly giving it that vintage look. Check out the gorgeous wood bed stained in Ebony black with 3 coats of eurathane. This is what i would call a local show quality/cruise-in truck that will plenty of awards if that is what you enjoy.
Adding to the vintage look is a really sweet black diamond stitched bench seat that is really comfy. The original dash was dressed out with some more custom pin-stripe work and a beautiful set of Dolphin gauges were installed providing you with all of the vital readings you will need. A tach was added by the previous owner. As the odometer states, there are just over 1845 miles on this truck since it has been completed! For added comfort a beautiful polished tilt steering column with a sweet black padded and chrome banjo style steering wheel was installed. New carpeting, headliner, dome light assembly, window cranks…new, new, new!! All new wiring throughout the truck! Very cool push button start was added. Lets not forget the ice cold vintage sure fit air conditioning and heat with working defrost if needed that works off the original controls. Everything seems to be working correctly including the windshield wipers!! Previous owner added a Custom Autosound vintage look stereo that is digital and a nice set of speakers mounted in the front kick panels. Only flaw I noticed is a tiny cut in the passenger outside edge of the seat which I will try to have repaired prior to the sale. Just a sweet looking interior!!!
When this truck was restored 7 years ago a built 350 was installed that his friend said had about 30,000 miles on it. Well, evidently the gentleman who bought it from me 4 years ago said the motor blew about 3 years later so he bought a brand new crate 350 V8 from Summit Racing and installed it. He also addded a sweet set of Ceramic coated headers and it is estimated at about 275 hp.making it the perfect cruiser that still gets decent gas mileage if that really matters. There has only been 1500 miles put on this new crate motor so it has just barely been broken in. Smooth shifting Turbo 350 Automatic Transmission. Fuel feeds through the 600cfm Edelbrock carb sitting atop an Edelbrock manifold breathing out the sweet set of headers that run out a dual exhaust with very nice cherry bomb mufflers running out right before the rear axle. MSD HEI distributor for quick and easy starting. New plugs, wires, water pump, fuel pump, polished one wire GM alternator, etc…Great looking under the hood with nice set of finned Valve covers, chrome air cleaner with washable air filter. Steering is a breeze thanks to the rebuilt quick ratio power steering. New 7″ power brake booster with dual reservoir master cylinder and new front disc brakes stop this truck effortlessly. The front end is a mid 70's Camaro front clip with McGaughy's 2” drop spindles, and 2” drop springs up front. Rear end is a mid 70's Camaro 10 bolt that was rebuilt with very friendly highway gears, new rear brake shoes and wheel cylinders. New drive shaft and u joints. New battery, belts, hoses, shocks and wiring….new, new, new. New aluminum radiator and chrome overflow tube keep this baby running cool. Rear end has a mini c-notch and axle flip done providing a great stance. The truck had a set of 15" wheels from when I sold it last time but this time I decided to treat it to a brand new set of 18" American Racing Torque Thurst wheels that really set the stance off nicely. They are 18x8 in rear and 18x7 up front wrapped in brand new rubber. Another recent upgrade was a set of tubular A-Arms. This truck really handles the road beuatifully and is an awesome cruiser! The undercarriage, frame, and floorpans look fantastic as well with no rust issues!!!
