Re: NAPCO Thread

Thanks Josh.We`ll see what happens.I had a couple offers so far and sent it to them.It`s a shame to have to do it,if you ask me.

How about a Marmon-Harrington?It`s a Chevy:

Re: NAPCO Thread

That`s what I told one guy who offered."Are you sure you don`t just want to see what everyone else is missing?

Here`s a later Napco.Not so sure this unit wasn`t swapped in out of an earlier truck at some point.With LTs,that was the idea.Wear the truck out,then move the Power-Pak to the next truck.

Re: NAPCO Thread

I agree with Special K the Suburbans in post #3 are all factory. 1959 was the last year for Napco's in the light duty truck. Did GMC's have Dana axles in the rear as well as the front, like the 3/4 tons did. I know Chevy 1/2 ton 4x4's came with either the Eaton Corporate or the GM 12 bolt up to about 63. My friend had a 1/2 ton GMC Carryall when we were in college, I had my 63 Chevy Longbed 4x4. His had the V6 in it and I always preferred his Carryall over my pickup, much more practical for camping.

Re: NAPCO Thread

somewhere in my mess, i have a picture of my dad's old 55 chevy napco he had when i was a little kid. he worked for the agriculture department for contra costa county and it was his "county truck". he went from that 55 to a '64 ford 4x4, a 70 stepside 4x4 and finally a 78 power wagon. i wish i knew what happened to the 55 and the 70 since my dad always took extra care of his vehicles even though they were owned by the county. i tried buying the 70 when it came up for auction but as a 18 year old i didn't have enough cash.

Re: NAPCO Thread

Here is a Napco that is on Craigslist. http://newjersey.craigslist.org/cto/944931486.html

For sale is a 1970 GMC Napco 4WD tow truck. This is not a military truck it is just painted like that. New tires and brakes. Has a leak in the front diff and transfer case. Just a couple of seals need to be replaced. $10.000

Re: NAPCO Thread

That truck belongs to my friend Dale`s truck repair/towing/recovery/hauling business.Oh,I forgot powdercoating,too.One of his guys made that grille.I`m not sure if they made the big emblem.The truck had big singles all around,but Dale swapped duals onto it for his purposes.I likes it with the singles.I offered him a Lund visor I have for free.He didn`t want it.And,he`s a dress it up kinda of guy.Oh well,I think that truck is screaming for a visor if any truck should have one at all.

Re: NAPCO Thread

Hello, I picked up this 56 this fall, getting ready to tear it apart for paint, upgrades and a 396. My goal is to keep the axles to preserve a little of its heritage but will replace tranny and Tcase with something more modern. Somebody put a car 4 speed in it along the way and the Tcase is pretty noisey.i had a bad experience with a divorced Tcase on an old power wagon so I am going with a T350/np205 if I can make it fit.

Re: NAPCO Thread

after reading this thread, i have confirmed we do have a napco.













It has a small block Chevy with a two barrel under the hood, incomplete, no trans, my dad picked it up from somebody who was restoring it back in the day i believe, ill ask him later. looks like a pretty solid truck, has some rust, but after watching that napco movie on youtube i wanna restore it to stock condition.

67-72s may be more popular, but nothing is sexier than a nicely done task force.

Re: NAPCO Thread

All you need is an old sm-420 4 speed and you got it made for running gear.
They should be cheap and easy to find. In use in Chevy trucks from late 40's early 50's till 1967 I believe from 1/2 tons up to 2 1/2 (C60?)ton trucks.
