CC Outtake: 1959 Chev Apache Pickup – It Must Be Chevy Pickup Week on CC

Without even realizing it, we have a true Chev Pickup week on our hands.  Like Kevin Costner in Bull Durham, “We got ourselves a Natural [Rainout].”  He said something else actually (“disaster”), but you get the idea – it’s raining Chevy pickups this week.  Old Chevy pickups are no disaster at all.

I came across this example on Kijiji, it currently resides in Western Canada.  The ad was along the lines of, it hasn’t run for years, the truck is mostly in bad shape, but here it is in all it’s glory.

It certainly has its share of patina, and the post did not mention its mileage.  Safe to say it has hauled its share of loads over the last 50 years.

The interior looks past reclaimable condition to my eyes.  Is that a clutch pedal resting on the floor?  No cupholders for this worker bee.

The engine compartment appears to be mostly complete.  It looks like a 6 cylinder to me.

This working truck seems to still be wearing its original paint from the factory.  It may not have 600,000 miles on it but it has seen better days, I’m afraid.
