1955 Chevrolet First Series 3600 3/4 Ton NAPCO 4x4 Collector Truck

I purchased this truck from a neighbor in Big Bear Lake California. I have known this truck most of my life. It started its life as a forestry truck, then was purchased by the Union 76 gas station in Boulder Bay California as a shop truck. My neighbor purchased it in the early seventies and used it for his handyman business. He offered it to me a few years ago and I planned on restoring it, but now realize I have too many restoration projects underway already and not enough time for them all. This is a very special truck and I hope that someone will finish it and enjoy it.

This truck is being sold as is. It is not in roadworthy condition at this time but it is an excellent candidate for a nice restoration project. It's all there.

Good qualities

Original truck

Matching serial numbers

An early example of a civilian 4x4 truck

All original NAPCO tags on the dash for the 4 wheel drive operation and on the front axle, transfer case and the original builders tag on the passenger's door jamb

Areas that require attention

The truck has a "farm" paint and body job from previous owner

Floor boards have typical surface rust (but no holes)

The truck has been parked for many years and all the systems including brakes need to be gone through before it's roadworthy
