Seems most likely the directory wasn't actually 750.

Apache entirely holds on to view permission rather than read permission.

drwxr-x---  2 root    root    4096 Jul 11 09:33 750/
drwxr-x--x  2 root    root    4096 Jul 11 09:33 751/
drwxr-x-w-  2 root    root    4096 Jul 11 09:34 752/
drwxr-x-wx  2 root    root    4096 Jul 11 09:34 753/
drwxr-xr--  2 root    root    4096 Jul 11 09:34 754/
drwxr-xr-x  2 root    root    4096 Jul 11 09:34 755/

Being index by apache thusly

751/2017-07-11 09:33-
753/2017-07-11 09:34-
755/2017-07-11 09:34-

So, apache ignores all directories which aren't +x for apache's user.
Directories which are +x are listed but not necessarily readable (e.g.
751 results in HTTP 403 Forbidden).

TLDR: if the dir is -x it won't show up in the index, if it is +x it will.
