Re: NAPCO Thread

Oh man! I'm digging that. I am posting the photos and text for the record.

1956 GMC
Truck with completely rebuilt flatbed: It runs, 1 ton dully, 4 wheel drive, (nampco, original to the truck), 4 speed manual, 400ci engine, very rare with 3 rear windows in back of cab ( see photos).

This is a truck just waiting for you to finish what has been started. It has a new, completely rebuilt flatbed, tires with lots of tread, cab and body waiting to be restored.
It is has 1958 front fenders and hood. Dual head lights, pto winch on the front,
clean title in hand.

Re: NAPCO Thread

That’s the first time I’ve seen someone try to make a task force cab five window (really four since the front glass is one piece); otherwise, that’s a nice one

Re: NAPCO Thread

It’s actually factory - I have seen 1 or 2 others. Forget the story about them though!

Those cabs were used on bigger trucks, semi's. They are factory not custom or homemade but never seen one on a 1 ton Blue Chip truck before, based on the ad description and pictures he's pieced it together from multiple donor trucks. GMC hood, Chevy grille, etc. Task Force were Chevy's.

Re: NAPCO Thread

most ere eaton axles . they used a lot of off the shelf parts and i have heard / read the front center diff is the same as the back end . just olted in the custom made front housing .

try looking in the heavy hauler section here there is a decent amount of 4x4 big trucks in there .

when your typing a post scroll down and use the manage attachments button and then load files from there .

I've seen 1/2t trucks with that window deal. I can't recall if it was factory or a conversion. Not homemade for sure. I talked to one very knowledgeable owner/fellow member when we were in the National Chevy/GMC Truck Assoc back in the '80s

On cab window count you don't count the windshield. It's door windows back, such as 3 window coupe having door windows and back window. 5 window coupe had quarter glass.

Re: NAPCO Thread

A nice way to bump this back to the top. 55 Napco project $12000 which seems a bit steep to me but if the body is perfect it likely would be worth the price. The opinion is mine the truck is not!

https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/...866547135.html

Up for sale is a rare 1955 Chevy NAPCO 4x4 1/2 ton shortbed pickup. Small back window. 4 speed manual transmission and Spicer model 23 divorced transfer case. Warn front locking hubs. No engine, radiator or tailgate. Comes with a clutch, flywheel, new front brake shoes, and new front wheel cylinders. Previous owner welded in new inner and outer cab corners, and looks like a quick paintjob (looks pretty good from 20 feet). I installed new tail lights and brackets, seat cover, new wood in the bed, gas cap and filler hoses, painted the bumpers and headlight bezels and cleaned it up. Cool truck to restore back to its glory days or throw in a small block and have a weekend warrior. Classic plate and title in hand. This is a pretty rare truck and fully restored could bring $60k or more. Serious inquiries only please. My cell coverage is pretty bad, so if I don't answer, leave a message and I will call you back asap. No texts, call and we can talk. Call Brent @ 4 2 5 6 9 8 5 O 2 9. Thank you.

Re: NAPCO Thread

Hello Guys,
I have a general question as it pertains to the Napco trucks. I recently traded my 69 Firebird Convertible (which I had traded my 72 Burb for) for a 1956 Chevy 3100 longbed Napco. The truck runs and drives pretty good. Drives down the road nice. It has new paint but the paint job was not done well in regards to prep/finish work. It would be fine as a driver or 10-20 footer but in my opinion the truck is such a solid desert truck and the body was in such good shape it would justify being repainted.

I am at a crossroads in regards to wondering if I should keep the truck and slowly upgrade and improve it quality wise in essence restore it, or consider selling it outright.

What are your guys feelings in regards to the market and strength value wise if I did move forward with improving the truck ?

Thanks for your time, I appreciate it very much.

Attached is a picture of the truck as it sits now. (If I keep it and start working on it I would like to find the original rims and style of tires as I dont care for the ones that are on it now).

Re: NAPCO Thread

The difference between a $200 paint job and a $2,000 paint job is about 10 feet. One looks good from 12 ft. The other looks good from 2 feet. I think that it looks good.
Original rims may be very hard to find.

Hi Danny,
Thanks very much for your feedback, I appreciate it. I am new to the Napco trucks so I am not even sure what time original wheels would be specs wise etc, I have only seen what is in photos and I like the tall and thin loom of the wheel and tire combo

Re: NAPCO Thread

There is a guy who bought a '50s suburban that he wanted to show. It had old tires, I believe 17 inch. He bought another NAPCO suburban just to get a good looking set of tires for his truck.

You've got a nice truck there, hope mine looks that good one day. The Vehicle Info Kit from GM, at this link, has the detail on what wheels would've come factory for your truck. 1957 was the first year for factory installed 4x4 setups in Chevy pickups. 6-bolt wheels will be easier to find. Mine is a 3/4 ton and I searched for years for the 19.5"x 5.25" wheels and finally found them. https://www.gmheritagecenter.com/doc...olet-Truck.pdf

Coker Tire also has a nice selection of period correct truck tires in the more common sizes too. https://www.cokertire.com/tires/styl...and-truck.html

Re: NAPCO Thread

Thank you for the additional info. I will check out the links. I guess I dont need original wheels as much as the original appearance and stance but that can be addressed later down the road. I look forward to learning much more and tinkering around with it.

That really is a nice one.

I don't think this has been shown. I know nothing about it, but it was for sale at the time I got the pictures

Re: NAPCO Thread

Question for all you napco guys. My friend is offering me a 57 napco. It runs and drives. The only rust I can find is in the right side wheel wells and it's not that bad. It has a different dash and the radio hole has been enlarged a little. It looks like a may have blow by but l'm hoping that will clear out when it gets driven more. He's asking 8000 for it with some extra parts. Is that a fair price? I don't want to let it slip away. I need some options. I tried to upload pics but I'm not to bright with this stuff. Thanks

Welcome aboard. Good to see a member from my old hometown. It is hard to guess value without photos especially with some sort of dash conversion. But looking at the trucks in this thread it doesn't sound out of line price wise. It's just not a deal.
If you do a search for how to post photos you will find step by step instructions. Better than the ones I would be able to give.
