Hello,
I would like to know: Has there ever been a factory mounted trailer hitch for the Apache? Are there any manuals or advertising brochures that show a trailer hitch? I would like to install one on my'59 Apache, but the vehicle inspection for historic cars here in germany is very strict, so i have to find proof that there was something like this built by GM. Thanks in advance!

I don't know if you have the choice, but here in Maine, U.S. I avoid the antique regulations by getting a normal registration & insurance on my 1954 Chevy 3600. I don't need to up date anything like blinkers, just whatever was on the truck when it was new must work right~

Welcome to Chevytalk,

I'm not 100% on this so hopefully someone else can chime in, but I don't believe there was ever a factory hitch for this era of Chevy truck. Bumper ball mount only.

My 59 Apache has a ball mounted on the bumper (only). There doesnt appear to be any reinforcing steel below that bumper or connecting it to the rear frame rails.
