Description

This 1959 Chevrolet Apache Step Side Pickup truck comes to us from a local Chicago owner. It's completely rebuilt with an expert frame off restoration. Show quality paint finished in Cardinal Red with all white roof and visor.

The Apache Step Side has wonderful history in the Chevrolet truck line up. The "Task Force" was Chevy's successor to the Advance Design series. The Task Force Series ran from 1955 through 1961. At GMC dealers, it was called the Blue Chip Series. In 1958, all Task Force trucks were dubbed the Chevrolet Apache, a name they would carry until the end of the series in 1959.

For 1959 the most apparent change was a larger and more ornate hood emblem and redesigned badging on the fenders. The Apache is really considered the last of the wonderful big window mid-century task force trucks.

The Details:

The engine is a 327ci Block Cast 3970010. It's smooth and runs strong. New everything on this motor including radiator, hoses, clamps, alternator, carburetor, valve covers, all fittings, even the exhaust manifold. Brand new gas tank has been fitted as well. Check out the photos of the engine bay. It's spectacular.

The Transmission is a Muncie 4-speed. We opened the trans and the clutch was inspected too.

In 2020, our master technician at Corvette Mike Midwest installed a new Currie Complete 9” rear end with POSI, professional built by TCI Engineering in California. It's the best-of-the-best rear ends for classic pick ups. Rear end parts cost with POSI: $3900

The dash has been upgraded with an electronic instrument cluster which matches the original analog gauges. The interior has beautiful custom two-tone bucket seat upholstery, new headliner, new carpet. Dashboard and all interior panels have been expertly repainted.

The bed is new oak polyurethane finished with stainless steel trim. Tailgate has been all refinished. New chrome bumpers, grill, glass and trim.

The tires are brand new BG Goodrich tires with less than 200 miles. Wheels and caps are brand new from Summit.
