1955.1 Chevy 3600 NAPCO Truck
From Eric :
I brought home yet another old Chevy truck. This new one is a 1955 First Series Chevy 3600 NAPCO truck.
Here is a short story: I found this truck in a local classifieds on-line ad. The truck was pulled out of an Indian reservation in Nevada. It was then brought to West Wendover where I picked it up. I brought it to my Utah home about 20 miles south of Salt Lake City.
The flatbed has FORD stamped on the back. It looks like it had a pickup bed on it when it was new.
I'm in the process in making the truck more complete and putting a bed back on it.
This truck is a very, very rare truck. I have only seen one other 1955.1 NAPCO here on Stovebolt, and only two NAPCO's in Utah from the NAPCO website so this makes the third.
I would like to find out how many of the 1955.1 Chevy NAPCO's were produced.
2013 Info - Eric's trucks have become "stars." He's got a few in the show Granite Flats. Here are some pictures and videos that he has in his Photobucket Account devoted exclusively to the television series production. Since they have been using the 1955 GMC 350 2-Ton the most, we have included some details in that Gallery page.
Be sure to Read Eric's "The Hunt and the Kill" in our Features section -- Eric's saga, and our future. Then at 17, Eric hunts down his first Stovebolt ... and learns the joys of hunting (and getting) his first Stovebolt -- well, actually several! And then there's his "creative financing" strategies ... pretty goot!
Did we say a "collection" ... here's what Eric has (so far) -- a few in the Gallery and hopefully more stories coming! ~ Editor
