1959 Chevrolet Other Pickups NAPCO 4WD 283 4SPD 50K RESTORATION

Welcome to Street Dreams Texas as we celebrate our 19th year in the classic and muscle car business. The popularity and convenience of today's 4-wheel drive trucks can be traced directly back to a company called NAPCO. Despite the fact that most people are unfamiliar with the Northwestern Auto Parts Co., their conversions for GMC, Chevrolet, Ford, and Studebaker introduced Americans to the benefits of 4WD. Initially the NAPCO equipment was offered as a kit, but by 1957 both GMC... and Chevrolet trucks could be ordered from the factory with the Powr-Pak (4WD) conversion. The partnership was brief, however, as GM's reengineered front suspensions in 1960 were not compatible with the Powr-Pak, and all-new, in-house 4WD systems were being developed at General Motors. This small production window and attrition from extreme use explains the rarity of these trucks today. This freshly restored 1959 Chevrolet Apache 3100 Fleetside sports a fully functional NAPCO 4WD system beneath its beautiful Cardinal Red and Pure White paint. The venerable 283 ci small block has been fortified with 'double hump' heads and a Rochester Quadrajet carburetor for a bit more power, which is routed through a 4-speed manual transmission and back to the NAPCO transfer case. The paint and body, chassis, interior, and wood bed have been freshly restored and look fantastic. This is a rugged and collectible truck that's ready for another 58 years of service! Street Dreams is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide shipping, insurance, and financing options.
