From Terry :

          This truck is a 1957 Chevrolet Napco 4 x 4.  This truck was bought new in 1957 with the 265ci V/8 and was sent to Napco for the conversion in 1958.

          The truck was used on a ranch in South Dakota until a few years ago. It still has the original paint, engine, and running gear which I have recently rebuilt. It has a small rust area in the bottom of the front fenders that isn’t too bad.

          I will never paint it or restore the truck because I like the patina that it has. I have done a lot of other things like new heater core, wiring harness in the column for the lights, Napco decals and emblems, correct radio antenna, tires, brakes, front panel in bed and so on.

          I lifted the truck 3" from stock with new springs in front and re-arched the rears and made a steering block for the steering arm to keep the drag link level. 



           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
