Today’s featured pickup is a 1959 Chevrolet Apache 32 Pick up.
In most respects the Apache 32 Cab and motor options were similar to the Apache 31 Fleetside I looked at last week.
The ’58 and ’59 Apaches all shared twined front head lamps.
This particular vehicle is registered with a non standard 3.5 litre 213 cui motor size, given that it is in the UK this may well be one of Britain’s popular all aluminium Rover V8’s that originated from Buick.
The big difference between the Apache 31 and 32 is the wheel base 114 inches on the ’31’ and 123 inches on the ’32’ which also had heavier duty axles and springs to allow for a 3/4 ton load in the six and half foot long cargo box.
353,509 Apache’s of all sizes were built in 1959 before they were replaced by the C/K series in 1960.
