F/I LT1 350 V8, 4L60E 4SPD AUTO, PWR STEERING/BRAKE, INDEPENDENT REAR, GR8 CRUSR

In the late '50s, Chevrolet trucks were unquestionably the best-looking, most modern haulers you could buy. Today, trucks like this 1959 Chevrolet Apache Big Window have an undeniable appeal with lots of chrome, wonderful styling, and a bunch of still-usable functionality. This beauty also happens to offer a burly 350 V8 LT1 motor, an overdrive automatic, gorgeous Teal paint, and a tastefully upgraded A/C interior to go with it, making it vintage a truck that you can drive anywhere.

Choosing the correct exterior color is one of the most important decisions in any project, amplified tenfold on this '59 Apache – arguably one of the best-looking vintage trucks of all time. The high-impact, the top driver-quality Teal finish is the perfect complement to the design of this late '50s slabside Chevy short bed, a period-perfect shade that's loved by virtually all generations. Truly, it would be hard to imagine a color that accentuates these bold contours any better, and with the contrasting white 'spear' on the bed and 'Chevrolet' block letters on the tailgate, it POPS. Finished approximately 18 months and a scant 642 miles ago, the paint and bodywork are still very fresh. And while it isn't a ... Please ask for the full description.

Description

F/I LT1 350 V8, 4L60E 4SPD AUTO, PWR STEERING/BRAKE, INDEPENDENT REAR, GR8 CRUSR

In the late '50s, Chevrolet trucks were unquestionably the best-looking, most modern haulers you could buy. Today, trucks like this 1959 Chevrolet Apache Big Window have an undeniable appeal with lots of chrome, wonderful styling, and a bunch of still-usable functionality. This beauty also happens to offer a burly 350 V8 LT1 motor, an overdrive automatic, gorgeous Teal paint, and a tastefully upgraded A/C interior to go with it, making it vintage a truck that you can drive anywhere.

Choosing the correct exterior color is one of the most important decisions in any project, amplified tenfold on this '59 Apache – arguably one of the best-looking vintage trucks of all time. The high-impact, the top driver-quality Teal finish is the perfect complement to the design of this late '50s slabside Chevy short bed, a period-perfect shade that's loved by virtually all generations. Truly, it would be hard to imagine a color that accentuates these bold contours any better, and with the contrasting white 'spear' on the bed and 'Chevrolet' block letters on the tailgate, it POPS. Finished approximately 18 months and a scant 642 miles ago, the paint and bodywork are still very fresh. And while it isn't a museum-quality presentation and minor imperfections can be seen upon closer examination, this is a higher-end, driver-grade paint job that would acquit itself incredibly well at local shows and cruise-ins, and the curb appeal alone is worth its weight in gold. This Apache was professionally converted into a Big Window and short-bed truck during the restoration. The work was done so nicely that there's no trace of the original small window/long-bed configuration. The upgrade transforms the Chevy from a work truck to a glamour piece, further punctuated by the smooth look of the deleted original hood trim, lack of fender badges, and smoothed roll pan out back. The doors, tailgate, and hood open and close flush and reasonably easily, and from bumper to bumper, the gaps in the bodywork are uniform and consistent. Details like the front chrome bumper, the shiny wide grille, and quad headlights help strengthen the link between Chevrolet's passenger car line and trucks and note the set of old-school round taillights that look like they came off of a street rod hanging at the flanks of the tailgate. And when that tailgate is dropped, a beautifully finished oak bed is revealed – lightly stained (as in the finish, not blemish) and protected with chrome slats between the wood.

One of the cool things about this restoration is that there is no weak link in the entire project. The interior is every bit as dialed-in as the rest of the truck, punctuated by a beautifully upholstered bench seat stitched to mimic the Teal-and White color combination found outside. The metal parts of the door panels, dash, and cab are painted Teal to match the body, and bright chrome accents add the perfect bling. The dash is the star of the show, highlighted by a leather-rimmed billet-banjo steering wheel mounted atop a tilt column. The chrome bezel just beyond it was filled with a full array of Dakota Digital gauges that keep an accurate eye on the upgraded drivetrain. For convenience, a modern R134a A/C was added (although it's due for a recharge). That custom center console was neatly integrated and stitched to match the seat, featuring extra vents, three 12-volt ports, auxiliary switches, and a set of billet cup holders. Plush carpets line the floors and come protected with thick rubber mats, and seatbelts were added to the bench. Because the transformation to the Big Window cab was done the right way (the entire back panel was fabricated in place, so this is not just a window glass swap), the airy cabin feels very spacious and upscale inside. You'll find the perfect balance of beauty and comfort, nicely equipped and ready for all-day comfort for you and a passenger.
A thumping 350 V8 LT1 motor delivers four or five times as much power as the original engine would have, so it's extremely entertaining on the road. Swapped in from a 1994 Corvette, an electronic fuel injection system and cold air intake for snappy throttle response feed it. With that giant aluminum radiator and dual electric fans, this truck doesn't seem to mind sitting in traffic. This Apache was driven four straight hours into our showroom, bombing down the highway at 75MPH the entire way without a single complaint. The block's been augmented with heat-wrapped long-tube headers to pump up the already hefty horsepower and torque production. With all the Corvette drivetrain elements faithfully transplanted and seamlessly integrated, this sucker moves! A few dress-up pieces make things look tidy under the hood, especially with smoothed and painted firewall and inner fenders, and the rumbling Cherry-bomb style dual exhaust system underneath sounds wicked. Thanks to the modern 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission and 2.59-geared rear end donated from the same Corvette, this truck is fast but easy to drive. It handles like a dream with a fully independent front and rear suspension featuring power steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes. Flashy American Racing Torque Thrust wheels perfectly complement the Apache's lowered-and-raked stance and are wrapped with sticky 235/55/17 Nitto performance radials with plenty of grip.

Beautifully restored and tastefully modified, this Apache Big Window resto-mod is a one-of-a-kind truck that's missing just one final piece – a new owner. Call today!
