For Sale: 1959 Chevrolet Apache in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Step into the world of automotive artistry with this 1959 Chevrolet Apache Koolant Customs. This stunning vehicle is the product of a $240K build, executed by a bona fide automotive power couple with virtually no limits. The result? A mind-numbing head-turner that wraps a 327 cubic inch small block and stalwart 700R4 transmission in a custom suspension and one-of-a-kind appearance. The Koolant's design theme is a nod to the late '50s and early '60s, when America was enamored with space and space travel. The Apache's striking resemblance to rockets and aircraft is amplified in this custom build. The truck's solid, all-original body was completely stripped and customized with traditional touches like shaved fenders and a nosed hood, complemented with a smoothed bed, a smoothed tailgate, capped bed stakes, and a custom gravel pan. Under the hood, you'll find a 327 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 that utilizes a .060 overbore to create stout 9.88 to 1 compression. The engine is cooled by a custom-shrouded aluminum radiator, and exhaust rumbles through ceramic-coated Sanderson block huggers. The undercarriage of this Chevy is as impressive as its engine bay and exterior. The dressed 327's power flows into a chromed and painted 700R4 4-speed, equipped with a 2,400RPM stall converter. The truck rides on traditional Chevy leaf springs, attached to high-quality Bilstein shocks. Inside, the detail-oriented cockpit features charmingly retro surfaces. The custom '59 Chevrolet dash hangs custom, Koolant-branded Classic Instruments gauges above Vintage Air climate control fitted with custom, bullet-style knobs. A 6-way power bench centers a Koolant-branded crest on tight leather and shimmering '50s deadstock fabric. This 1959 Chevrolet Apache Koolant Customs is a unique combination of time, talent, and exceptional attention to detail. With its killer paint, hot small block, and stylish interior, it's the kind of top-notch street rod that's guaranteed to make a statement.
