Here's a little bit of a view of the generator driven
power steering pump for 6-cyl only. (Very rare!)
Mark says that the
NAPCO hardware, brakes, etc all seem ok, and the truck was running
when Mark's brother owned it the first time. Since the engine
had a knock in it, it was parked.
Mark Noakes now owns this 58 GMC big
back window cab, short bed wideside, 1/2 ton factory built NAPCO pickup
with a 270 6 cylinder, 4-speed. It's unusual as it is but also
has (rare) factory original power steering (generator driven).
level is base and it does not have a radio. It has 85K miles
on it. Mark's brother owned it for a while, sold it during a
shortage of funds, and then Mark bought it back when he found it again
a few years later. (lucky guy!)
It should be a good
base for a first class high grade restoration. Mark says that
he will almost certainly upgrade it to the deluxe trim level and find
an original radio. However, It will have to wait until Mark's
58 Chevy Suburban restification project currently underway is complete.
(chevy comes 1st??? whats that about?) Just kidding!
I can't wait to see the end result, I'm sure Mark
will please us all. Mark hurry up on that chevy!!
