Mecum FL 2016 – 1959 Chevrolet APACHE Pickup Custom 6.0L LQ9

From the solid steelies and lowered suspension, to the unpretentious cabin and that fabulous custom-airbrushing?  This truck is a dream for the eyes — but also packs a modern V8 to move and shout like no ’59 Chevy truck should!  The engine is a 6.0-liter LQ9 LS motor with a six-speed automatic and custom axles. Big brake kit and full redo of the steering, brakes and suspension mean this Apache will drive very fast and modern.

The exterior is a lovely baby-blue powdercoat, with one-off copper accents to recreate that perfect Death Valley style.

This truck crosses the block on Thursday of this week in Florida or online via the link below.
