1959 Chevy Apache Pickup
You are looking at a mostly original 1959 Chevy Apache 3100 pickup. It is a short bed. This truck came from Arkansas this year.
This truck has a nice 235 c.i. inline 6 cylinder motor that runs and sounds great. It has the higher compression "848" head which was an option on these trucks. Good oil pressure and no cooling issues. I do not see any water, oil or transmission leaks. It has the 3-speed transmission with the floor shifter (column shaft and dog ears are still there if you would like to change it back to column shift). It still has the starter on the floor. This truck has been changed over to a 12 volt system. Electric wipers have been installed and work well. All gauges work except for the speedometer (we will try to get this fixed before the end of auction). Fuel tank has been removed from behind the seat and an aluminum fuel cell with guage has been installed in the bed. Bed is textured plate steel. The body on this truck is very straight and solid. Paint is in very nice condition with only a few scratches on the rear bumper. There is a very small door ding on the passenger side door which is almost unnoticeable with no chipping of paint(see picture). Cab corners are good. As you can see the step wells are very solid as are the door hinge pockets. Doors do not sag and they open and close properly. Door handles and window cranks all work as they should. Glass is in good shape with the exception of some typical delamination of the vent glass. There is some pitting in the front bumper but overall it looks pretty good. The only real flow in the body is some pitting on the bottom part of a rear fender. It is not visible unless you get underneath.
We have just installed new carpet over very solid floor pans and have had the seat professionally reupholstered. Clean title in hand.

Allow us to be the first to extend our condolences to our friends to the north. General Motors has announced the 2014 Chevrolet SS will not be available in Canada. The Globe and Mail reports the automaker has confirmed the high-performance sedan won't hit Canadian dealers, though GM hasn't offered up any reasoning as to why that is. Buyers here in the US of A, meanwhile, can look forward to getting their hands on the 415-horspower, rear-wheel drive SS by late summer. Something tells us it won't be long after that before Canadian officials start seeing individually imported 6.2-liter V8 four-doors in their neighborhoods. Fortunately, Canadian buyers will still be able to take home the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. The C7 bowed at the Canadian International Auto Show last week, reportedly drawing sizable crowds and interest.
As part of a longstanding tradition, the MVP of Super Bowl XLVII, Joe Flacco, quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, was given a new car directly after the game and trophy celebrations. For 2013, that car is a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and it was presented to Flacco by Rick Flick of Banner Chevrolet, a dealership in New Orleans that was wiped out by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 before returning to prominence as the only Chevy dealer in Orleans Parish. Last year, Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning took home a 2012 Corvette GS Centennial Edition. Manning also won in 2008, when he selected a Cadillac Escalade Hybrid as his reward. In 2011, quarterback Aaron Rodgers accepted the keys to a Camaro convertible. Though we're most definitely an auto-obsessed group, we did watch the Big Game along with nearly everyone else in America. And we've gotta say, as if winning the Super Bowl and receiving the Tiffany-designed Pete Rozelle Trophy wasn't enough for the multi-millionaire MVP athletes, a brand-new C7 seems like an awfully generous prize.

Judging by your continued enthusiastic response to configurator notices, dear reader, you enjoy speccing out new cars as much as we do. Better still, there tends to be even more ways to personalize, configure and bloat theoretical MSRPs on full-size trucks as there are with more ordinary passenger cars. In addition to trim level, engine and transmission choices, truck buyers usually have to specify items like cab configuration, bed length, number of driven axles, tow packages, gear ratios and all sorts of bits and bobs. That's why we're pleased to see the DIY specification utility for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado come alive so soon after this week's Detroit Auto Show debut. While the configurator lacks pricing (General Motors hasn't announced numbers yet) and full options, you can still spec out your half-ton rig, and even print it out or email it to your friends. Beyond the configurator, the new model-specific site is pretty cool, too, with various videos and closer looks at the truck's new features. The new Chevrolet pickup range won't be on dealer lots until sometime this summer, so whether you're a building contractor, an avid sportsman or just a guy or gal that loves full-size trucks, you might want to check out the link below to keep your appetite whetted. If you're more of a Sierra fan, well, it looks like you're going to have to wait a while - GMC hasn't updated its site yet.
