Well guys and gals - this old truck is back on the road in the north Dallas Texas area.

I pulled this old girl out of a junk yard over 10 years ago, she ran, but was full of mice and such. Dragged her home and was promptly laid off from my job. So years passed and she waited for me to get my life and money strightened back out - she was very patient with me. frown

Well last october I set to repaying her for the long wait...

What you see in the links is my pic history of the build process, and today she is driven daily, and there are still only 6 cylinders and 3 pedals, however she is a orignal Napco 4x4 this 4x4 kit was insatalled at the dealership in 1958, as marked on the front axle.

I hope you genjoy the pics as much as I enjoy driving her.... pix

There are 231 pics there so enjoy...

Thank you Sir
I got me a few hours tied up in her, but she is well worth the time.

Folks think I did what you did - put an old body on a newer frame...

Well mine is an all ariginal 57 Chevy with the dealership installed NAPCO. Check out the history at

Your truck look great..
