Napco Equipped: 1958 Chevrolet 3600

1958 Chevrolet 3600

There is just something incredibly cool about a big old work truck with some patina and a Napco 4×4 system! This ’58 Chevy has all of those features and it is definitely a beast. It has spent its life in the high desert of Montana, hence why it isn’t rusted out. While the seller has it running and driving, they admit it is still in need of some sorting. The seller does a great job of listing this truck and you can find their ad here on eBay in Fort Harrison, Montana.

Bidding is already past $11,000 which is quite impressive for an old work truck. I guess it goes to show that there is lots of demand for cool old trucks! I can see the appeal of a truck like this. Besides have a great look to it, they are functional classics that you can toss lumber in the back of, plus with that 4×4 system it will go just about anywhere.

The seller has already spent a decent amount of money and time getting this truck going, but it still has a few issues. The transfer case is said to whine a bit and one of the driveline seals needs to be replaced. Given how well these were built, I think these are pretty minor issues to address. So the question is, do you leave it wearing its original worn out paint or do you give it a nice new paint job?

    IT’S THE NAPCO 4×4 INSTALLED DRIVELINE THAT’S PUSHING THE BIDDING NUMBERS UP.. there’s always been quite the following of Napco equipped GMC & Chevy Trucks, ‘n they’ve held their value thru the yrs, and probably will continue to do so. It also follows suit with Ford Trucks that had the optional Marmon-Herrington 4×4 installations such as this example.

    clear coat it and let it put fear in the traffic around you! You can’t go 4-wheeling in a brand new paint job, so why bother? That beast was made to get out in the boonies and rustle up some firewood and maybe bring home that deer as well!

    NAPCO offered conversions for Studebaker and Ford also. It was a bolt in kit with a divorced transfer case, hence the 4WD selector lever being almost under the seat with an offset selector handle. It was a an expensive upgrade, used Dana/Spicer parts and GM figured out they could do it themselves about 1960.

    a friend had a shortbox 56 gmc 3\4 ton with the 4×4 conversion. Way beyond cool!
