Default OT 1960 Chevy Truck

A lady at work has her dadís 1960 Apache and was telling me she was going to call one of those we buy your car places. I told her I think she could get more selling herself. I know some of you here have all kinds of vehicles. Can anyone recommend a forum like this one for older Chevy trucks? The only thing I know is that motor was rebuilt or replaced and that is about it. I may go look at next week but need to learn what to look for so she can set a price.

Thanks in advance.

One place that comes to mind is Bring-a-Trailer, they sell a wide variety of vehicles, mostly classic and even project vehicles. She might want to check it out.

It wouldn't be an Apache like this would it?



Good luck... GUSTO

Thanks Gusto. It is an Apache. She had one small picture and the truck was faded black.

These early Chevy pickups, especially short beds, have become quite popular. Even project trucks, especially if it has a V8 in it. Most that I remember from back then came with 6-cylinders in them.

I delivered flowers as a teenager in a mid 60's Chevy van and the 6-cylinder with 3 on the tree, was quite potent. I was told, it could even pull the front wheels off the ground. I had no personal experience mind you... that's just what I was told.

or here http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/index.php I know it says 67-72 Chevy Trucks, but there are boards for all years. I frequent the 67-72 Suburban section. The group over there is equally helpful as everyone here, they should be able to point you in the right direction.

I have friends who swear by Cars-online.com. They buy lots of cars on it and build and sell on it.... may be better than BAT for that truck

Regardless of which forum she winds up on, don't let her just sell it to the roving "we buy anything" guys. Just as we cherish old Vettes here, somebody somewhere will be THRILLED to buy that truck from her.

I've sure seen a bunch of old Chevy trucks come and go. An Apache that's more or less all there, typical rust, and rolls on aired up tires. $2500 to $3500.
Add $1000 to $2000 for nicer, yet still needing restoration.... ESPECIALLY if it has no primer or different color body parts. If the finish can be washed and look like a "patina" and the same over the whole truck? That adds a-lot of value.
Deduct $500 to $1000 for worse.
But, a pile of something that used to be an Apache is $1500 no matter what.

Thanks all. Greg, I will check that site out once I get some pictures. I’m trying to get her to email me some just to have when I go there. I finally have a two day weekend so I can finish remove everything from my frame. If I get done Saturday then I may try to go look at it Sunday. Don’t t worry Don, I think I convinced her not to call the we buy your car guys.

My next purchase will likely be a 58-60 Apache or a 62-66 short bed C10.

The right example could make me move up that time line.

My son has a 1966 C30 dually flatbed. Its a stump puller with a 292 and SM465. He drove it to high school and to work for awhile.

Sounds good....I think thats probably your best bet. I spend a fair amount of time over there as well, you should get plenty of interested traffic in the for sale section.

Good luck!

Hemmings Classic Cars for Sale indicates otherwise. Of course, Hemmings may be the best Apaches currently being offered for sale, but when I glanced yesterday the basket cases were 5-10K and the runners going up from there, with pages of 30K trucks. Trucks are hot items currently.

I’m sure you could find someone local, I run into guys all the time looking for a truck. Maybe contact a local classic truck club?

Always thought Hemmings was to give a guy an idea, of what to tell his friends, what his car was worth?
Like my next door neighbors fully restored 65 Mercedes 230SL...... So, he could tell me it's worth $65k every darn time I saw him.

There you go Chris - he's first in line already! It would be cool to see it go to someone in this group!

Agree, those trucks bring real good money even the projects/neglected ones. Too many scumbags will convince her they are doing her a favor hauling "that old thing" away.

As said above, 67-72 chevytrucks.com. I'm on there and have been since before I joined here. They do have a section for the Apaches as well. You can post a classified there as well, but you'd need to be a subscribing member for I think $25 a year. It's a great site with a lots of information. I'd call the the equivalent of this site, but for Chevy trucks.
