Please ensure that you are ready to complete the deal before you bid.This truck is a very original very rare 1957 Chevrolet Factory NAPCO truck that is in fantastic condition for its age. It is the very desirable 1/2 ton short bed stepside truck. 1957 is the first year that these trucks were fitted (per RPO) with the NAPCO 4 Wheel Drive system at the factory. They did not call the trucks "Apaches" until 1958. I represent buyers and sellers of these rare NAPCO trucks on my website and YouTube channel and this is one of the few 57's that I have seen in the past 5 years. The fact that it is a cab/frame VIN matching truck and hasn't been eaten up by rust makes it a great candidate for restoration or to drive as is!

It appears that the truck was originally a teal blue color and was repainted once in orange. I do not see any evidence of prior body work or bondo.

The truck lived most of its life in Texas and then came here to Colorado. It was a running daily driver up until a couple of years ago. As you will see from the video and pics below the sheet metal is in relatively good shape and has only small rust issues in the usual areas (cab corners bottom of front fenders). The frame is rust free even the body mounts are in great shape. The floor of the cab is immaculate without any swiss cheese at all!

The Cab VIN matches the Frame VIN and the Weight Tag reads 5400 lbs.

The truck was upgraded to a Chevy big block 396 cu in V8 and I'll tell you even after sitting for a few years the motor roared to life with some fresh gas and a new battery.

A 1957/1958 date coded Chevy small block complete with pan heads and intake is available (for an additional price) with the truck. Also included is new glass for the back window as the existing glass is cracked. If you plan to buy the extra motor please plan to arrange for extra labor here in Denver as the motor is not currently in the bed of the vehicle.

The truck is driveable to some extent but does not currently have a battery or brakes. It may be just a matter of putting fluid in the master cylinder but I did not have time to get into it. Transporting a truck with brakes is cheaper and easier than one without.I also noticed that the fuel pump is leaking.I am happy to assist with shipping. If the buyer would like to have the truck transported to a local mechanic where a battery can be installed and the brakes can be sorted out I can help with that as well.

The winch shown in some of the pictures is NOT included in the sale of the truck.

The truck has a clean Colorado title but there will be a delay (first part of June) in the conveyance. Payment is to be made by wire transfer to my business account and funds will be held until the title is provided to the buyer. Payment will be refunded in full if title cannot be provided within a reasonable time frame.
