1960 Apache 10
15 July 2004
Hello. Here are several photos of my 1960 Apache 10 for inclusion in your on-line gallery.
My great-grandfather purchased this truck new in April 1960 from Hannah Motors in Mankota, Saskatchewan for $2,930. It is a base model with a 235 six and three-on-the-tree. To date, there are 69,800 original miles on the odometer.
The truck was given to my father in the early 80's and he made and added the checker plate rear bumper and running boards, as well as the mud flaps. In 1993, I had the truck repainted to factory original two tone yellow and white, put a new maple bed in the box and replaced the windshield. A passenger side exterior rear-view mirror, interior rear-view mirror and passenger side sun visor have been added, but are all factory parts. Hub caps are the original style, but I replaced the original painted ones with the chrome version.
My intention is to have the truck fully restored within the next couple of years. I will remove the running boards and mud flaps and replace the home-made rear bumper with a factory spec model.
The interior is in good overall condition, but the upholstery is beginning to crack and I want to get it replaced.
Currently, I have 4 new Firestone 670-15 bias-ply 2 1/2 inch whitewalls on order from Coker to give the truck a bit more pizzazz.
