1960 Chevy Apache C-10 custom low-rider/dropped truck, hot rod
Selling my 1960 Apache truck that I have been working on and need to sell. This is one of the coolest trucks around and looks awesome in the sunlight. The truck was painted 5 years ago using House of Kolor Candy Apple Red with a Silver base coat. I cannot locate the color code(s) but will keep looking for them. Overall the paint is in great shape. I did put another coat of wax on in before it went into winter storage, but there are a few nicks in the paint (pictured) from hitting curbs when being lowered.
Truck has a Chevy 350 with 350 turbo tranny, new Edelbrok carb, new exhaust with dual pipes out the rear (sounds awesome). New hydraulic tanks, valves and hoses that drop this truck down to within a few inches of the ground. Both front and rear can raise/drop independently. Marine grade batteries allow for plenty of juice to handle the load of the actuators. Smoothie style Chevy hubcaps with beauty rings. Tilt wheel. Drum brakes all around. I do not have the bed secured to the truck as I just put it back on for these pictures. It is secure enough to transport the truck on a trailer after the sale.
This truck came from Nevada and has very little rust, bondo or other issues with the body and is structurally sound. You can’t find trucks like this with this much work done for this price.
The trucks runs. It was upgraded to a 12v system a few years back, but I have a brand new wiring harness that will be included. I was planning on re-wiring myself but never got the time to do it this past winter. These trucks are easy to rewire and should not take too long to do. Interior is in great shape and has a 2-tone bench seat and other items listed below. Gauges work but some of the light bulbs for the cluster are burned out and need replaced in order to see them at night. Cigarette lighter, wipers, headlights (including hi-beams) and tail lights work. I have videos of the truck running, with lights on and raising/lowering of the suspension that I will email to anyone interested.
A few of the things that I wanted to mention in full disclosure: Truck will need a drive shaft. I did have the truck on the road last year but noticed the drive shaft needed replaced and parked it before winter hit to work on it. The suspension will need finished and secured to the frame. Small tranny leak from sitting around, but should be an easy fix. Bed needs permanently mounted to the truck (we just placed it on for these pics). Speedo works but occasionally hangs up for whatever reason for a mile or two then works again. Engine will need the choke connected. Rear bumper brackets and bumper will need to be installed since I never did that. The front bumper is mounted already. If I think of anything else I missed, I will update the listing.
This truck just need finished and it will be an awesome ride for someone looking for that classic low California truck look. All of the hard work is done. It does have its rattles and noises, but they all do. This is not a new truck and will not drive like a new Silverado, please be aware that you are buying a custom truck. I have a clear PA title in hand. I will include anything and everything that I have for this truck to the new owner.
The NEW parts that I put on the truck include……NEW interior chrome (door handles, vent window locks rear view mirror, rear view mirror bracket, sun visors, sun visor brackets, tail lights, new dash knobs, door panel inserts, chrome cab light, tail lights, tail light rubbers, clear running lights, bezels, bulbs, wiper arms, chrome cowl pcs, chrome door handles, chrome tailgate hardware and chains, chrome fuel cap, fuel neck rubber. Chrome bumpers and new bumper brackets are included. Basically, anything chrome has been replaced within the last 6 months.
The NEW parts that still need to be put on by the new owner include: 16-circuit electrical harness, 16” Coker 3” wide white tires (still wrapped in plastic), rear bumper brackets, all door seals/rubbers. Seat belts. I am sure I am missing other items that are included, but let me know if you have any questions and I will get you all of the info I can give.
