  1. From the time I first gazed at a NAPCO-converted '57 GMC short box, V-8 powered pickup to our last two Suburban K2500 beam front axle models, vintage G.M. beam front axle K-trucks have held my attention...I recall test driving an early press fleet '88 Chevrolet Silverado (GMC Sierra) 4WD IFS pickup in its first release to the media in the spring of 1987—wondering, "What is G.M. thinking here!" G.M. hit stride in the 'sixties and 'seventies, setting a benchmark for 4x4 trucks. Our 1973 Chevrolet K10 short bed with a 350 V-8 and 465 Muncie truck box was among the best vehicles we've ever owned. Even our Dodge Ram 3500 was purchased largely for its beam front axle—a design that G.M. trucks taught everyone to value. I know what works for G.M. beam axle trucks...Do you have questions? Want to share what today's "built" G.M. beam axle truck is all about? Join the forums and get the conversation going! Moses
  2. Advance Design and Task Master series G.M. trucks did not offer 4WD—but NAPCO conversions did! The NAPCO 4x4s were rugged work trucks, popular throughout the 1950s. G.M. created its own 4x4 light truck models from 1960-up, and some of the best K-models were the 1960-86 pickups, Suburban, Jimmy and Blazer through 1991, each boasting a beam front axle. Our family owned four of these G.M. models: a 1970 K10 SWB 4WD, a 1973 K-10 SWB 4x4, a 1986 K2500 Chevrolet Suburban and a 1987 K2500 GMC Suburban. Each one of these trucks delivered exceptional performance and a very long service life, the haulmark of the beam front and rear axle K-models! My Chevrolet & GMC Light Truck Owner's Bible (Bentley Publishers) was a tribute to models like these...In the late 1960s, I maintained and refurbished a fleet of G.M. Advance Design, Task Master and 'sixties era trucks. As a classic G.M.C. "Jimmy" six and Chevrolet "Stovebolt" buff, Chevrolet as well as Pontiac V-8 engine enthusiast and K-model supporter, I encourage restorers, owners and others to share your exceptional trucks, their technology and ownership experiences—right here at the vintage G.M. truck forum!—Moses Ludel
