Gateway Classic Cars Milwaukee is proud to present this 1961 Chevrolet Apache pickup. The Apache was a light-duty pickup that was manufactured by General Motors from 1958-1961. By 1960 General Motors was succeeding in expanding its traditional truck market with pickups that were not only pieces of art but were being built with a lower stance and a smoother more comfortable ride. The wide cab design and increased windshield visibility were an instantaneous hit with potential buyers. The Chevy pickups of the early sixties have become very desirable in the classic truck market. Especially the Apache with its distinctive “eyebrow” front end.
This 1961 Chevrolet Apache pickup is painted in royal blue. A set of beefy Cragar alloy wheels, spray-in bedliner, dual chrome mirrors, and a sliding rear window are great added features. The gray interior consists of custom vinyl bucket seating w/ a center console and cup holders. Full carpeting, updated gauge package, wood steering wheel and a Pioneer AM/FM/cd radio make for a very inviting interior. Under the hood is 305 V-8 attached to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission. Power steering and power brakes are great additions.
