This 1959 Chevrolet Apache was built by Weaver Customs in West Jordan, Utah. The company calls the project “Apache-D” because of the 6.6 L Duramax LBZ V8 under the hood. Industrial Injection built the turbo diesel V8 to make 700 horsepower and 1,500 lb-ft of torque. Behind the engine sits an Allison six-speed transmission with an Atlas transfer case that sends power to Dana 60 axles with 3.73 gears. The truck rides on a Fox 2.5 shocks and Fuel Off-Road 20×13-inch wheels with Toyo 35-inch tires.

At the risk of inflaming old school diesel groups, does this wonderful custom truck incorporate DPF/SCR?
In Utah the emissions requirements of a vehicle are determined by the model year of the vehicle so it is not required as diesel emissions for a 50s truck were non existent. So why would they?
Why would it? Lbz that was installed was never equipped with it.
What frame did you use, and why did you choose it? Very beautiful truck! 👍
Exhaust exit is perfect….
It’s not the original Chevy frame … lol. Nice truck!
