This is a second-series truck with the new-for-1955 styling — and a very rare NAPCO 4×4 conversion.
1955 was the first year General Motors offered the new half-ton pickup with 4×4. NAPCO 2-speed 4×4 conversions were composed of 85% GM parts. The NAPCO slogan proudly stated: “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 ride over the road.”

Cadillac redesigned its models in 1965 and continued a slow evolution of the new styling in 1967 with reworked contours, which gave the cars an appearance of greater length and muscularity. Underneath, the valve train and engine fan were refined for smoother operation, and a new carburetor was fitted. Body mounts were tuned, with the result being a car that was everything that a Cadillac Read More
This Stanley Model E2, one of six models of the Stanley steam car available in the 1909 catalog, is powered by a 10-horsepower twin-piston engine — a marvel of simplicity that employed only 13 moving parts.
Once the big front-mounted boiler had been filled with water, fired, and tended by the owner’s careful hands, the Model E2 could hum along and climb steep grades with ease. It was a fun car, combining the eerie silence of steam with the peppy Read More

Eager to shed its stodgy reputation during the 1960s, American Motors launched a daring assault on the lucrative youth market with a series of prototypes. Developed at AMC’s advanced styling studios in October 1965, the first AMX prototype — short for American Motors experimental — was developed under Charles Mashigan, a leading contributor to Ford’s original Thunderbird and Chrysler’s Turbine.
AMC management was suitably encouraged to approve further development, enlisting outside contractors Smith Inland of Ionia, MI, to build a Read More
