1957 Chevy Napco 3200
20 February 2006
This truck is my 1957 Chev Napco 3200 big window V8 truck. I just got this truck and man she's a beaut. She's a factory V8 truck big window truck and she's solid as a rock. She's been in the desert most of her life. The previous owner got locked up and signed the title over to his dame and she sold it to pay for ... whatever.
It snowed here back right before Christmas (2005) and I mean it snowed good. I had to have four wheel drive to get off my street. I locked in the hubs and this truck bit into the snow like a shark and .... well ... gotta love these Napcos! That extra height gives them such a wicked stance.
This will be a work truck kind of. I'm not going to abuse her but I sure ain't going to baby her either. They like to work.
Some body work, paint, go through the motor / transmission / tcase / hubs and a rewire and she'll be good to go.I guess I'm a real fanatic. Normal people just have one or maybe two classics but nooo - not me - I have to have a museum full. I haven't submitted my '57 and '58 Suburbans nor my other '57 Chev. I just picked my fav Harley and I want to submit my '50 Case tractor as there are no Case models represented.
Thanks for the time you spend doing this - I always use Stovebolt as a reference tool when trying to identify trucks. It's the best GM truck site on the net. Thanks again and I'll submit the rest of the stable in the near future.
