N.O.S.New Old Stock" or "Never Originally Sold"? In the case of G.D.'s '60 Chevy, it's both! Pushing the ideas of what was and wasn't available at the time from a GM dealership. It was easier to custom-order your vehicle back then by adding and deleting options from your order sheet, but even then there were limitations. Every once and awhile, there was surely a one-of-a-kind Chevy that slipped through the gate because someone knew someone and pulled some strings, or maybe it was for an executive who wanted something flashy, who knows? Through the use of many original N.O.S. parts and thorough swapmeet hunting, G.D. assembled this Apache that never was. The era-correct, owner-installed options include: a 250hp, 348ci W-engine, automatic, a factory tach dash, and a cool Pac A/C unit. The short-bed has been in G.D.'s care for 25 years now, and is better than brand-new. He and the Chevy cruise around their home in Highland, New York, both enjoying semi-retirement.
