1955 Chevy 1/2-Ton NAPCO
Happy St. Patty's Day
From Terry :
Here is my 1955 Chevy 1/2-ton Napco. The truck was used in Utah as a search and rescue truck. It has the 16" eight lug spilt rims on it.
The truck is solid but is pretty well beat up. It still has all the original running gear in it. It was red with a white upper cab. The transfer case is model 3100, serial number 7A5023 with the two shifters in the floorboard.
I am buying parts for it and I don't know if I am going to restore it or try to find a good body that has some patina like an original paint type of truck. I would rather have it like that than restored.
Here are a few more pictures:
This was sent to us back in August of last year. As you can tell from the list, Terry had quite a few Stovebolts. This one was a little left behind as we were trying to get more information about the truck. We'll add more when we hear more. ~~ Editor
Terry has a stash of old trucks -- a 1955 Chevy 1/2-Ton NAPCO, a 1965 Chevy 4WD / a 1936 Chevy Pickup Truck / a 1957 Chevrolet Napco 4 x 4 / a 1959 Chevrolet Napco. That's quite an expressive fleet of bow ties you've got yourself there. The '36 is a sweet machine. You've lucked out being the latest curator of that little beaut! It truly amazes me what treasures are squirreled away out there. Thanks for sharing. Now for that '65 stump jumper, that has lots of attitude and altitude. ~~ Mike "Burgandybolt" Allen, Stovebolt Welcome (Panel) Wagon
