There was a 56 napco in Penticton on castanet a while ago. I have a 56 3100
small back window that I bought when I was 16 (was a long time ago) been following me around for years. Now my oldest is 15 and we're gonna make a rod out of it. Picked up a 94 shortbox 2wd for the frame, I had visions of a 4x4 a few years ago then I started wheel'n my Sami and realized I didn't want to bang up the body on the 56. Couldn't find a cameo box so I have a 58 short fleetside for it, hopefully it'll see the road again one day. I have a spare 57 hood if ya find yourself needing one [cheers]

well boys i finally got around to working a little on the truck today, basically vac'd the inside of the cab, removed the dash cluster assembly and cut out all the hack job of wiring in the engine bay and some in the cab.

The poor truck has just been jimmy rigged with so many wires and butt connectors and splices im surprised it ever ran... i will be putting a new 12volt ez-wiring kit into it heres some pics of her nothing crazy.

You will all notice the hack job on the firewall and dash board so disappointing what people will do to such a vehicle, i will be repairing all the holes in dash and firewall. And the patch job with checker plate on the rocker panels and step sills will be re done as well... what a gong show haha but I knew this was needing to be done anyways.

well got busy yesterday on stripping her down some more, removed the cab and box and transmission , just have to get the frame on jack stands and start stripping her down to a bare frame so i can start mocking up my 4 link setup and my ride height. I think my frame height is going to be around 47" to the bottom of the frame rail off the ground with 44's so should be nice and low and mean looking when its done! heres some more pics for all of you

sorry for the long time delay in updates guys as Ive had a very busy summer with work and life period! So the truck is now down to the frame ready for the old xmembers to be removed then sent out for sandblasting.

So after considering all my options of the original cab and how much actual rot and rust was is it , I bucked up and bought another much nicer cab out of Walla Walla, WA 14hr round trip drive to pick it up. But I have to say its well worth it the cab itself is in mint shape only needs lower hinge pockets that is it!

Also got some more parts in for the rig this week bought some FOA 14" Coilovers, 1.25" Johnny Joints for my 4 link, 14 bolt grizzly locker and my Chevy hydro pedals for my nv4500 install

heres some eye candy pics
