Wow, just saw that a pretty rough 1959 Apache 3100 sold at auction for $27k. It did only have 30k for miles. A link to the video is at https://www.agweb.com/article/petes-pick-of-the-week-1959-chevy-apache-3100-naa-greg-peterson/
Sorry if the link doesn't allow you to just click on it, just copy and past into your browser.

I wonder if any of those bidders would be interested in a 1950 3600 blush
Must have been people REALLY wanting that truck.

That is very hard to believe. It has to be a situation I've seen before in my own family. Father or grandfather dies. Leaves no will. The heirs must sell and split the money per the probate court. Relatives want grandpa's truck. More than one relative maybe. So they fight for it or they are shilled up by the auction people knowing the situation. There is no other answer for that price. It is not a rare truck even with 30K miles. Obviously the person who bought it has sentimental interest not investment. If they restore it they will be pushing $50K total. Maybe more.

The 30K was all on the farm/ranch. That's a lot of usage. Not a Fleetside, not a big window, not deluxe cab, some rust out, one non original wheel and cap, Farm style reinforced rear bumper, non tri 5, lots of other unknowns, none of which could be positive, not in garage kept 30K mi condition, nice old truck. Don't see any dents. Valuable to a degree. Patina is neat but has zero value, it's just rust and weathering.
Just my expert opinion.
Thanks for posting it.

The original condition without lots of body impact damage and minimal rust through make it desirable as an artifact.

Well, I guess everyone has an opinion and mine is "that was plum crazy bidding".

I agree with Bartamos, that was two family members fighting over Dad's truck...that is NOT a $27K truck outside of that auction. Did you notice the on-line bidders dropped out way back in the bidding.

A little surprising to me somebody wanted it bad! Had to have an emotional story behind it. Yes, old trucks are having a good time in the market now. A stranger was looking at my 59 which I would say is 60% done offered me $30,000.00! I just smiled and said no sir I am building it for my son and grandson. It is my last ho raah!
