1956 GMC NAPCO 4×4 Truck in NW Austin, Texas

Written by Ken Altes

1956 GMC truck in NW Austin, Texas, modified with Napco’s 4×4 Power-Pak system, installed to new trucks by the dealer in about three hours. It wasn’t until 1960 that Chevrolet/GMC offered their own 4×4 system.

I think this is the same truck at auction with a good history.

Don’t know anything about this truck although I imagine it rides on a modern truck chassis. I particularly like it because I learned to drive in a 1946 Ford flatbed in Pittsburg, Texas, on the red, sandy back roads, although that one was clapped out, wobbling wildly at 37 mph. Took this pic in the Motoreum parking lot on Hwy 620 near Anderson Mill Rd.1946 Ford truck 4x4 detail front1946 Ford truck 4x4 in Austin TX1946 Ford truck 4x4 detail1946 Ford truck 4x4 detail rear
