Ottawa, Kansas, United States

Up for sale here I have a rare first year factory built 4 wheel drive 1957 Chevrolet Napco 3100 big window truck.  The truck was built in the Willow Run, Michigan plant which is where a majority of the Napco trucks were built.  It has a clear ks title in my name that matches the body and frame vin.  It has a 235 and a 4 speed manual transmission which was the only way you could get a factory built 4wd Chevy in 57.  The truck has all its original 4wd parts other than the warn locking hubs were swapped out for new powertrain products hubs at some point.  The truck sits just under 7 feet tall.  The truck is very solid all around but it has had the rockers replaced and the were installed incorrectly over the top of the step instead of under it.  The passenger side lower fender looks to have been replaced as well and it doesn't fit that well I haven't tried to adjust it.  There also appears to be some work done over the headlights where most of these trucks rust.  The cab corners look nice.  The doors appear to be nice and solid and open and close like they should.  The steps and floor are very solid with just a few minor pinholes in them.  There's no rust in the roof or window channels of the truck.  The bed and tailgate are straight and solid but someone removed the wood and metal strips.  The rear fenders have very minimal rust and some dings in the but are definitely usable.  The front and rear bumpers are straight and usable.  The rear bumper is a Redi Fit bumper that wraps around to the rear fenders and the parts truck has a Redi Fit bumper that stops short of the rear fenders so its your preference.  The chrome grill has some dings in it and would need redone.  The truck has 15" truck rallyes on it with one missing trim ring.  The windshield is missing but the tinted big back glass is there and looks pretty good with no blistering or chips.  Theres some door glass and vent glass thats in one piece but it is old and weathered and should be replaced.  The 235 is disassembled but looks good and complete.  The 4 speed shifts through the gears and has a new clutch in it.  The transfer case also shifts properly.  Theres some extra chrome door glass frames and alot of other loose parts.  The truck is missing the seat, the gauges, the 3100 fender emblems, the headlight bezels, and the drivers side exterior door handle but the parts truck has all those parts.  If you don't want the parts truck to save on transport costs I'll remove whatever parts you want me to and put them with the Napco.  The parts truck is also a 57 Chevy 3100 but its a 2wd and it doesn't have a title or an engine.  I can probably get a clear title for it if thats important to you but I haven't done it because I didn't feel the truck was a good builder due to the rust in headliner, windshield and back glass area.  This truck has all the typical rust that this model truck gets from the cab forward but the bed and everything attached to it look really good.  This auction is for both trucks with all the parts that I have for them and I'm selling them with no reserve.  Early Napco trucks restored properly bring $45-$50k when done properly.  If you need a shipping quote contact Ryan @ ASAP Transport 913-201-0133.  Full payment within 7 days and a $500 deposit due through paypal within 48 hours.  Thanks and good luck bidding.

I have a piece of plywood cut for the bed of the Napco so parts can be loaded in it and the parts truck will have tires that hold air for transport.  I also didn't mention that I live within an hour of 3 major Chevy truck restoration parts suppliers (Jim Carter Classic truck parts, classic parts and LMC truck) so if a buyer wanted me to pick up parts for them and send them with the truck to save on shipping I can do that.  I also get a 10% discount at LMC truck plus no sales tax with my account there.

Only reason for selling is to fund my dream car 1967 GTX build.

GM recalling nearly 4,000 vehicles over airbag concerns

Thu, 31 Jan 2013

Four different General Motors vehicles from the 2012 model year are being recalled over a potential airbag issue. The driver's side airbag shorting bar in the 2012 Buick Verano and 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, Cruze and Sonic might make contact with the airbag terminals, even during a crash. If so, the airbag won't deploy when it should, possibly increasing injury to the driver.
The recall is expected to begin on February 13 for the 3,896 units that might be affected. GM will notify owners who can then take their vehicles to dealers to have the airbag coil replaced. A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration below has more info.

Fewer than 1 in 3 Chevy dealers earn right to initially sell C7 Corvette

Mon, 01 Apr 2013

Looking to make the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray as efficient as possible, Chevrolet will be limiting the numbers of its dealers that can sell the all-new coupe and convertible. According to Automotive News, sales of the C7 Corvette will initially be limited to less than a third of Chevy's total dealership network when the 'Vette goes on sale this summer.
Only 900 dealers out of more than 3,000 locations nationwide will be allowed to sell the new Corvette at first, and the reason for this is so that there are no shortages at dealers that can actually get the cars sold. The article says that the 900 dealerships chosen represented 80 percent of total Corvette sales in 2012.
Some of the requirements dealers had to make to get initial allocation of Stingray sales include having sold at least four Corvettes in 2012 and having a Corvette Stingray specialist who will be required to have gone through a training session costing more than $2,000 per attendee. Once demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray begins to subside - approximately six to nine months after it goes on sale - then allocation could open up to more dealers, but the report indicates this could happen following the 2014 model year.

Official USPS Muscle Cars stamps coming to a mailbox near you

Thu, 21 Feb 2013

As much as our digital lives have cut down on our trips to the post office, there are still times that sending "snail mail" is necessary. With us car lovers in mind and philately in their hearts, the good folks at the United States Postal Service will introduce a new stamp design called "Muscle Cars" starting on February 22.
Designed by artist Tom Fritz, the new collection of stamps consist of five classic muscle cars: 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1966 Pontiac GTO and 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda. In addition to just the stamps, the USPS is also commemorating the new series with plenty of collectable memorabilia. Previous car-related stamps include 50s Sporty Cars from 2005 and 50s Fins and Chrome from 2008.
