Default AP value of Close Combat weapons against Vehicles

Alright. This question came up last night with me and friend's after reading up on the vehicular damage chart. We can't decide if a close combat attack gets a -1 on the damage chart for AP- or if you just roll normally. What do you guys think?

Melee attacks don't have an AP.

They aren't AP 1, or AP -, they don't have an AP stat. As such, you don't apply AP modifiers.
