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

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.
