Re: NAPCO Thread

If Fleetside is right then I am wrong. I never heard of or recall seeing even the first year called anything but Wideside. Pretty sure the GMC got no emblem. Very nice find

Re: NAPCO Thread

I believe that emblem belongs on a Chevy not a GMC.

Re: NAPCO Thread

Nice example of an early NAPCO at a price that seems quite fair. I love that thang!!

Re: NAPCO Thread

The listing stayed till it expired? Wow, hard to believe. I feel the same way about it (I think). V8 truck, 1t, traditional Dark Green, fish & wildlife. You better believe that would be restored right back to all that if that truck was mine

Re: NAPCO Thread

Another rare 4X4, a Coleman, not a NAPCO. A cool suburban though...

Re: NAPCO Thread

That's a decent price. Especially if you have a decent Burb or panel to convert to a 4x4.

That's only the second 9 ft Advanced Design panel I've ever seen. Pretty rare. Way cool!

Re: NAPCO Thread

Just picked up some 1/2 ton Napco running gear. Guy took it off of a 1950 carryall that he bought. The axles are off of a task force truck, and there's some grinding on the driver's side spring perch to compensate for the tapered front leaf spring setup on the advance design series. Now I need to find a truck to put these under

Re: NAPCO Thread

Can anyone with an original Napco setup take a few pictures for me? Working on my '56 3600 pickup and without knowing the actual history of the truck it looks like it was converted using older axles- front is a drivers side pumpkin, not passenger. Anyway- I am trying to find the correct u-bolt plates for the front end that go on top of the leaf springs. Whoever did the conversion simply torched out some plate steel squares to use instead. Thanks!
