235 INLINE-6, 3SPD TRANS, CLEAN IN/OUT, RUNS GR8, FUN 2 DRIVE, CLEAN AND HONEST!
This 1961 Chevrolet Apache has that attraction where an honest day's work meets intricate detail and style. It's the kind of appeal that comes from a real truck that can be put to real use, but still turn heads no matter at a cruise-in or a hardware store run.
The bold jet-pod styling of the 1960 trucks is now a thing of legend. The body has a wraparound crease that proves the '60s were a great time for designers even at GM's truck division. You can see all these details today thanks to great care with the sheet metal. The turquoise and white paint represents the era perfectly. This is the kind of complete package that even the wheels with factory hubcaps follow the color theme. You only get this kind of preservation on a special vehicle – and this pickup has been owned by the same family all its life so far. That's why this one remains complete, right down to Apache badges on the hood (and this was the final year for that name designation.)
This pickup keeps its workman attitude on the inside, which is exactly what you want on a classic truck of this caliber. The dash has that perfect worn-in appearance that looks good in bright silver while still providing old-school charm. The grooves of the steering wheel will certainly put you in connection with generations passed. And while this has a great survivor-style quality, the bench seat has been re-covered for added comfort.
Lift the hood and see a true marvel. Hardly any of the smooth running 235 cubic-inch straight-six engines are seen in '60s vintage Chevy trucks anymore. Despite the fact that these were the sturdy backbone for the company's dependability reputation, they often get replaced by the small-block V8s. We understand why this happens and sell plenty of those custom trucks. But with so many of those out there, it's refreshing to see something this honest. We're not alone. Those who want to sneak a peek at your stalwart Apache will expect something of this caliber in the engine bay. But beyond just appearance of a workmate, this is still ready to go to work. It fires up easily, idles nicely, and pulls strong thanks to the control of the three-speed manual transmission.
Here's a vintage pickup that looks great and has a story to tell. It's amazing you can get all of this for such an affordable price, and that's why we know it won't be in our showroom long. Call now!
