A mildly restored Chevy Apache has reached reserve and will find a new home later today. Also closing out today on Hemmings Auctions is an authentic 1970 Mach 1 that has seen some upgrades. For all of the lots available for bidding as well as past results, be sure to visit the Hemmings Auctions page.
The Apache nameplate first appeared for 1958, and this one features a Stepside bed and 63,407 miles on the odometer. The engine is an unrestored 235-cu.in. inline six with a manual three-speed transmission, both believed to be original. Other original parts include the leaf-spring suspension on both the front and rear, the original drum brakes as well as the steel wheels with correct bowtie-logo hubcaps. Refinished in eye-catching bright red paint, the exterior shows minimal blemishes in the sheetmetal and bed area. Inside the cab, the dark gray interior features the same vinyl flooring as when it came out of the factory with new cloth on the bench seat showing minimal wear and a column mounted shifter offering more legroom. This Task-Force era Chevy truck will change hands as it has already reached its reserve.
Purchased 15 years ago by the seller, this Mustang is believed to have the factory 351-cu.in. Cleveland V-8. The engine was recently rebuilt and has only been driven less than a hundred miles since. Formatted with an automatic three-speed FMX, this Mach 1 shifts “fast and strong” according to the seller. The paintwork was likely done sometime in the 1980s as it’s seeing some orange peel on the roof with some chips near the hood and fenders. Underneath, KYB shocks, springs and bushings were replaced and the suspension was lowered two inches. Custom Recaro seats adorn the interior but the originals are included with the sale, carpeting and headliner are brand new with all gauges (stock and added) working. The seller will also include the Marti Report documenting this upgraded Mach 1’s authenticity.
