You are getting me inspired to get my finger out and back to my C10 once the summer comes back and the Blazer is done.

Re: 1961 Chevy Apache My Beater

I used to love driving my 66 and seeing people take photos.

Or being spoken to when parked up.

They are good trucks, yours is lovely..

Re: 1961 Chevy Apache My Beater

Quick update. The side windows have never worked since I bought this truck. Finally pulled the inop noisy/rattly parts out of the doors. BIG DIFFERENCE truck is way quieter!! Took the 61 out for a drive with the wife the weather was KILLER!

Re: 1961 Chevy Apache My Beater

Hardwaa like the wheels that were on it when you bought the truck. Im looking to put those on my 64 step. Question? did the front wheels hit or rub any thing when turning. I would be grateful for any information. Mckee

Yep, It's a cool looking truck that you can use as a truck with nothing to worry about.

Re: 1961 Chevy Apache My Beater

Custom bed mat for the BEATER. 1 of my neighbors was throwing this large 1/4 thick mat away. I grabbed it and trimmed the excess. Now the 61 is ready for more work!

I love my 81, but seeing your truck makes me miss the old 64. Your truck is great!

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.
