    Hello all,

    I just acquired a 1959 Chevy Apache 3100 from my late grandmother. She wanted to keep it in the family. It was kept in the garage since the late 80's or early 90's. I am looking to bring it back to life. Here is a little info:

    It is a factory stepside with the spare tire cut out in the fender.

    It was stored with fuel in the tank. I just prematurely cleaned the tank with MEK. OMG. The gasoline was carmelized. Nothing but varish was coming out.

    I will post pictures shortly.
     
  2. Welcome! I have a '58 that's been in my family since about 1964. The neighbor who lived across the street from us when I was a kid, bought it new and I inherited it from my Dad when he passed in 1977. Best of luck with your truck. Post pics!

    Welcome, I just inherited my dad's '58 Apache and a '59 Parts truck. Looks like I'm carrying on that torch. Welcome, and good luck with yours.
