PLEASE SEE PICS FOR MORE DETAIL.?? BELOW IS A YOU TUBE VIDEO THAT CONTAINS THE ORGINAL NAPCO COMMERCIAL THAT CHEVROLET AIRED IN THE 50’S. IF YOU HAVE A FEW MINUTES IT IS WORTH THE TIME TO WATCH IT SO YOU CAN TRULY UNDERSTAND WHAT THESE VEHICLES ARE CAPABLE OF. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT NAPCO STANDS FOR AND THE RARITY OF THESE TRUCKS PLEASE SEE BELOW. The exact date of the GM factory 4x4, is not known. What is known is that in July and August of 1954, NAPCO (Northwestern Auto Parts Company) was pushing its proven 4x4 conversion on truck upfitters and GMC dealers across the country. Upfitters were companies that installed upgrades and accessories like winches, auxiliary transmissions, tandem drive axles, dump bodies and hydrovac systems on stock factory trucks. NAPCO had been in business since 1918. During WWII, they focused all their attention on projects commissioned by prime contractors to the United States government. Mainly, this meant the production of specialized automotive parts and assemblies that could be tested on the largest proving ground in the world: WWII. After the war, the military's priorities changed, and NAPCO re-directed its vast engineering and manufacturing experience to the production of goods for private industry. Their two-speed 4x4 conversions were comprised of 85% GM parts. That meant for the most part they were serviceable by a local dealer. Complete front axle differentials, brake drums, wheels, drivelines, backing plates, springs, shock absorbers, and universal joints were all Chevrolet replacement parts. Their slogan proudly stated that, "Now you can have a standard Chevrolet four-wheel-drive pickup featuring the traction power of a tank, or, at the flip of a finger, a smoother-riding, high-speed, over-the-road truck. Aptly named the Mountain Goat, this full-sized pickup will literally leap up mountains, as well as carry you through deep mud, sand, or snow." Some features of this shift-on-the-fly 4x4 were the unchanged turning radius, a full engine torque P.T.O. option, a rubber mounted transfer case for long, silent operation, greater ease of steering, and a guarantee of no damage to the Chevrolet or GMC frame during the three-hour installation. Yes, only four holes to drill and no torch cutting! In a matter of hours, you could go from a two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive and the NAPCO POWR-PAK could be transferred from one Chevrolet truck to another. This meant that if a dealer had a truck in stock that he wanted to convert to four-wheel drive by using the NAPCO POWR-PAK, he could order the POWR-PAK four-wheel drive package. Soon, a wooden crate, 80 inches long, 30 inches wide and 26 inches deep, would show up on his loading dock weighing in at 1,410 lbs. with all the necessary parts enclosed. Now, take into consideration that a 1/2-ton, two-wheel-drive pickup listed for $1,548.96 in 1954. The retail price of the POWER-PAK was $995, which included a dealer freight cost of $800 from Minneapolis, Minnesota (home of NAPCO). Installation by an upfitter or equipment company included the cost of the POWER-PAK, and listed at $1,248. This brought the complete list price of the finished truck to $2,796.96. These conversions were done on the 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton, one-ton, and the two-ton trucks, as well as the Suburbans and panels I TAKE MY AUCTIONS SERIOUSLY AND WITH INTEGRITY. I HAVE DONE MY BEST TO DESCRIBE THIS BEAUTIFUL AND VERY RARE TRUCK IN ITS CURRENT CONDITION. IF YOU SHOULD HAVE ANY QUESTIONS WHATSOEVER PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE YOU BID ON THE VEHICLE. IF YOU HAVE LESS THAN 10 POSITIVE FEEDBACKS ON EBAY YOU MUST CONTACT ME BEFORE YOU BID ON THE CAR OTHERWISE YOUR BID WILL BE CANCELED. ??THESE TRUCKS HAVE BEEN SELLING AT LARGE AUCTION WAREHOUSES SUCH AS BARRETT-JACKSON, RM, MECUM AND OTHERS BETWEEN $25,000-$50,000.
