Honda might not be famous for their pickup trucks, but they're proud of their efforts all the same. And to celebrate these efforts, the automaker is reviving one of the oldest pickup models, the 1961 Chevrolet Apache 10 pickup truck.
I know what you're thinking. "Why would Honda restore a Chevy pickup?" This is because back in 1959, The new and young Honda needed a way to transport their motorcycles since they didn't make cars at the time. They chose to purchase a fleet of Apache 10 trucks for this exact purpose. In less than a decade's time, Honda had become one of the biggest motorcycle brands in the US.
It's been 60 years since then, and Honda wants to pay respects to these vehicles by taking one and fully restoring it. They've taken a 1961 model truck, performed some light maintenance and gave it a new coat of factory white paint. From there, they used archived footage and images of their original fleet in order to accurately recreate the vehicles of the past.
The restoration is complete and Honda will be showcasing the Apache across the US in various local classic car events, starting in Southern California.
