I joined the other day. I found the stove bolt when searching for parts. I recently had my 1957 Chevy suburban NAPCO trucked down from Billings Montana. I originally purchased the suburban in 1974 for 1100.00 bucks after selling my 1962 Dodge Power Wagon Town wagon. My sister had the sub in Montana when I went into the service in 1978 and kept it until now. The sub hadn't run for 29 years, so some new tires, carb, oil change and gallon jug of gas hooked up to the carb and she was off and running again.

Welcome to the 'bolt. Needless to say, there are folks here that would like to see some pix of your truck.

Another quality post.

Good to see another Florida 'bolter. It's easy to get acquainted around here. We like photos!


When I die, I hope she doesn't sell everything for what I told her I paid for it!

welcome to the Stovebolt. I am not the authority on your model but I would think that your year model and it being a NAPCO that it is somewhat rare!!
Some pics would be nice......and congrats for hanging onto it over the years. Good luck with it and ask questions in the garage forums for any help you may need.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
